Probabilistic models - from discrete to continuous

29 Mar 2016 - 02 Apr 2016

Organisers: Martin Hairer and Hendrik Weber

The study of the large scale limits of discrete microscopic models is one of the classical topics of statistical mechanics. Often this large scale behaviour is amenable to a continuous description - typical examples include non-linear PDEs arising in the hydrodynamic limits or linear stochastic PDEs that describe the fluctuations around this hydrodynamic limit. There are also special situations in which a non-linear stochastic PDE can be obtained as a scaling limit.

The last few years have witnessed substantial progress in the understanding of both non-linear stochastic PDE and discrete particle systems. The aim of this workshop is to bring together leading experts from both sides of the discrete / continuous divide and to foster future collaborations.
