Mini Escuela de Verano en Probabilidades y Procesos Estocásticos attracted researchers and students from Latin America

Researchers from Argentina and Colombia, and postdoctoral, PhD, and master students from Santiago and Valparaíso joined in Tercera Mini Escuela de Verano en Probabilidades y Procesos Estocásticos, organized by Center for Mathematical Modeling from Universidad de Chile. During the meeting, three courses and three talks were lectured by experts from England, United States, Mexico, and Chile.

“Two courses addressed modern topics related to the structure and some representations on Lévy processes and Markov additive processes. The other course dealt with some important advances in the so-called problem of the ant in the labyrinth, which attempt to determine the scaling limit of a symmetrical simple random march in the critical percolation cluster,” explained Daniel Remenik, CMM researcher who organized the School with Joaquín Fontbona.

Both courses on Lévy processes were in charge of Andreas Kyprianou, scientist at University of Bath (Inglaterra), and Víctor Rivero, from Centro de Investigaciones Matemáticas de Guanajuato (Mexico). The contents introduced to a subject that could be unknown for many attendants and made a panoramic about the current research topics in the area.

Manuel Cabezas, from Universidad Católica, lectured the course on a symmetrical simple random march in the critical percolation cluster. The organizers of the School stressed this section as a very friendly introduction to a very interesting subject in the intersection of Probabilities and Statistical Physics today.

“The main objective of this mini school was to getting close frontier subjects in Probabilities research to Chilean and Latin American researchers as well as to students. It is possible in a relatively informal environment that enable the interaction among all the attendants,” said Remenik.
