Random and other ergodic problems


we have been made aware of a very convincing phone scam that is focusing on our workshop participants. Participants may be contacted by phone by a firm called Business Travel Management to arrange accommodation for workshops and/or programmes.  This includes a request to enter credit card information.

Please note, INI will never contact you over the phone requesting card details. We take all payments via the University of Cambridge Online store

If you have been contacted by this company please contact us as soon as possible.

22nd June 2015 to 26th June 2015

OrganisersIlya Goldsheid (Queen Mary, London), Frédéric Klopp (Université Pierre et Marie Curie), Leonid Parnovski (UCL)

Workshop Theme

The goal of this workshop is to get together top specialists on the mathematics of random operators (random Schrödinger operators, spectra of random graphs, random matrices, etc). The broad field has been evolving quickly. A number of important new results have been obtained in the last five years (spectral statistics of random matrices and ergodic Schrödinger operators, new spectral types for random Schrödinger operators on trees, new results on localization, the study of interacting systems, etc). The conference is meant to provide the audience with an overview of state of the art in the field and to foster collaborations within a field which has a large scope and broad interconnections.

Deadline for applications: 26 April 2015
