Celebrating the new probability group in Math&Stats

Random permutations and large deviations for Markov chains

Wednesday 15th and Thursday 16th June 2016

The object of this meeting is to celebrate the recent expansion in the probability group in the department. The organisers, Dmitry Korshunov and Dirk Zeindler, would like to use this opportunity to share their research interests with their colleagues, including the statistics section. Also it is our aim to use this event to raise current issues about random permutations, to discuss various aspects of limit theorems and large deviations for Markov chains and to discuss new approaches and new questions. This meeting is funded by the London Mathematical Society (LMS)  and everybody is welcome to take part.



Everybody is welcome to to attend this event and there is no registration fee. If you would like to take part, please send an email to with the subject 'Celebrating the new probability group in Math&Stats'.
