Scientific scope

Interacting particle systems are a powerful mathematical tool for stochastic modeling of systems whose microscopic dynamics can be represented by the local interactions of a collection of discrete entities or agents with discrete internal states. From the dynamics of molecular walkers to the growth of atomic clusters on substrates to the spread of ideas or contagion on social networks, such models are becoming increasingly important throughout the quantitative sciences. This two-day inter-disciplinary workshop will bring together researchers from the physical, biological and social sciences along with experts on the mathematical theory of interacting particle systems. The aim is to explore common aspects of these models and their analysis which spans the boundaries between different areas of research.
