Branching structures

The sixth Bath-Beijing-Paris meeting

The sixth Bath-Beijing-Paris branching structures meeting will be held in Bath during the week of 20 April 2020, 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.

Monday 20 April - Wednesday 22 April

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.

Thursday 23 April & Friday 24 April

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.

Further details, including a list of speakers, will be available in due course. For details of previous events, see the webpages of the second, third, fourth and fifth meetings in the series.


The talks will be held in the Wolfson Lecture Theatre in the basement of the main maths building, 4 West.
