Spring 2021: Date Speaker Title/Abstract 3/31/2021 Philippe Sosoe, Cornell University Title: Fluctuation bounds for O’ConnellYor type systems Abstract: The O’ConnellYor polymer is a fundamental model of a polymer in a random environment. It corresponds to the positive temperature version of Brownian Last Passage percolation. Although much is known about this model thanks to remarkable algebraic… 












Speaker:Title: Previous Random Matrix & Probability Theory SeminarsVenue: Previous Random Matrix & Probability Theory SeminarsSpring 2020: Date Speaker Title/Abstract 2/26/2020 Louigi AddarioBerry (McGill University) Title: Hipster random walks and their ilk Abstract: I will describe how certain recursive distributional equations can be solved by importing rigorous results on the convergence of approximation schemes for degenerate PDEs, from numerical analysis. This project is joint work with Luc Devroye, Hannah Cairns, Celine Kerriou, and Rivka Maclaine Mitchell. 4/1/2020 Ian Jauslin (Princeton) This meeting will be taking place virtually on Zoom. Title: A simplified approach to interacting Bose gases Abstract: I will discuss some new results about an effective theory introduced by Lieb in 1963 to approximate the ground state energy of interacting Bosons at low density. In this regime, it agrees with the predictions of Bogolyubov. At high…
