Random walks on graphs and potential theory

Warwick, 18-22 May 2015

Organiser: Agelos Georgakopoulos
Co-organiser: David Croydon

Random walks on graphs are studied in many contexts, including analysis, computer science, group theory, and of course probability and graph theory. This meeting will gather experts from all these fields, in order to emphasise the breadth of the topic and facilitate interactions.

Invited speakers:

Omer Angel (UBC)
Márton Balázs (Bristol)
Johannes Carmesin (Hamburg/Cambridge)
Ronen Eldan (University of Washington)
Ori Gurel-Gurevich (Hebrew University, Jerusalem)
Antoine Gournay (Neuchatel)
Ben Hambly (Oxford)
Vadim Kaimanovich (University of Ottawa)
Daniel Lenz (Jena)
Peter Moerters (Bath)
Thomas Sauerwald (Cambridge)
Alessandro Sisto (ETH)
Perla Sousi (Cambridge)
Stephan Wagner (Stellenbosch)
Anita Winter (Duisburg-Essen)
Wolfgang Woess (TU Graz)
Alex Zhai (Stanford)
