LMS Research School: Random Structures: From the Discrete to the Continuous,

Monday, July 1, 2019 (All day) to Friday, July 5, 2019 (All day)

The push to understand the behaviour of continuous scaling limits arising from discrete random structures is a major ongoing development in probability theory. This research school will give PhD students in probability the opportunity to meet and learn from international experts at the forefront of this exciting and fast moving field.
