First-passage and Extreme Value Problems in Random Processes

26th June 2006 to 30th June 2006

Organisers: Claude Godrèche (Saclay), Satya Majumdar (Orsay) and Sid Redner (Boston)

Supported by the European Commission, Sixth Framework Programme - Marie Curie Conferences and Training Courses - MSCF-CT-2004-516558

Conference Theme

The conference will focus on fundamental issues of first-passage processes and extreme value statistics and their applications, and on related non-equilibrium statistical mechanical processes. This conference will help develop the connection between fundamental theory and phenomenology by bringing together probability theorists, mathematicians, and physicists to stimulate new collaborations and research initiatives.
