Thursday 1st June 2017
A one-day meeting on Combinatorial Techniques in Analysis and Probability will be held at Lancaster University on 1 June 2017. This workshop is organised by Natasha Blitvic and is supported by an LMS conference grant and the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Lancaster University. The focus is on non-commutative probability, q-series, operator systems, and permutation statistics. The meeting seeks to showcase and further develop the rich interplay between these areas, with colloquium-style talks reaching out to a broader section of the mathematical audience
- Natasha Blitvic (Lancaster University)
Probability and Combinatorics: A Non-commutative Perspective
- Ying-Fen Lin (Queen's University Belfast)
Chordal graphs and Schur multipliers
- Einar Steingrímsson (University of Strathclyde)
Combinatorics vs. Probability: Counting vs. Estimating
- Costanza Benassi (University of Warwick)
Classical spin systems and random loop models
- Jason Hancox (Lancaster University)
Levy Processes on *-bialgebras
- Helge Schäfer (University of Darmstadt)
The Number of Cycles in Random Permutations without Long Cycles
