Branching structures

The sixth Bath-Beijing-Paris meeting

  • 13 Sep 2021, 9.00am to 17 Sep 2021, 5.00pm BST (GMT +01:00)
  • Wolfson Lecture Theatre, 4W 1.7, 4 West, University of Bath
  • This event is free

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.

To register, please click here. Registration is free and some funding may be available to pay for travel and accommodation for those who need it.

The workshop had to be moved from its previously scheduled dates of 20-24 April 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

For details of previous events, see the webpages of the second, third, fourth and fifth meetings in the series.
