 Overview

 

In recent years, many branches of probability theory (including interacting particle systems, disordered systems, random matrices, reaction-diffusion systems, etc) have witnessed tremendous progress. The interaction between the physics and the probability communities and the cross fertilization of ideas have been essential in these developments. Many models of interest to probabilists and physicists also have applications in biology, such as the modeling of molecular motors and the application of Random Matrix Theory to biostatistics. In turn, there is active research in the physics and probability communities on models inspired by biology. To name just a few, we mention protein binding to specific sites on DNA, stochastic search for special binding or exit sites in cellular confined domains, anomalous diffusion in membranes and cytoplasm, etc.

 

The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers from both the physics and probability communities and to promote further interaction between them in areas of common research interest.

 

The central themes of the workshop will include (but not restricted to): dynamics of reaction-diffusion systems, including biophysical applications of such processes; random polymers and related systems; the Kardar-Parisi-Zhang universality class, and random matrix models.
