Workshop Theme

The first workshop will introduce participants to problems that exemplify renormalisation in quantum field theory and stochastic partial differential equations. It will be designed for postdocs and graduate students in probability, pde or mathematical physics and it will serve as the beginning of two courses "Critical statistical mechanics and QFT” and "Stochastic pde and renormalisation", which will run for the duration of the thematic program.

Deadline for applications: 03 June 2018
