This event has been postponed due to the COVID19 epidemic.
The sixth Bath-Beijing-Paris branching structures meeting will be held in Bath, and will be an opportunity to discuss a broad family of stochastic models which exhibit branching phenomena, including applications to neutron transport.
As a new feature for this series of meetings, the meeting will run in extended form for five days split into two components.
The first three days are devoted to random branching structures such as branching random walks, fragmentation and coalescence processes, and population models, as well as other probabilistic models.
The last two days are devoted more specifically to an application area of branching structures. For this edition of the workshop, we will focus on recent innovations in the theory of neutron transport and its connection to quasi-stationarity, Monte-Carlo simulation and numerical stochastic methods.
Participants may opt to attend one or both halves of the week accordingly.
