## Midrasha Mathematicae – Discrete Probability and Geometry

## The mathematics of Oded Schramm

## Jerusalem, 15-23 December 2009

To be held at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the Institute for Advanced Study, Feldman Building Givat Ram Campus.

The school will be devoted to discrete probability and its relations with geometry and other areas of mathematics. The topics are chosen to represent the research interests of Oded Schramm. There will be several lecture series and additional lectures suitable to a wide audience of mathematicians and advanced students. Ample grants for overseas students are available.

Among the topics for the lecture series: **Probability on Trees and Graphs; Percolation; Graph limits; Random triangulations and KPZ; Random walks and Brownian motions; SLE I; SLE and the Ising Model; Boolean functions, Noise sensitivity and Fourier analysis; Applications to Physics; Further connections to Geometry.
**

The midrasha Mathematicae is an aramaic name for “mathematics school”. It is an advanced school devoted in mathematics which is taking place every year at the Hebrew University since 1997. The general director of the school is Peter Sarnak and the 2009/2010 school will be directed by Itai Benjamini, Wendelin Werner and myself. Stay tuned for more information.

Carter SchonwaldHi Gil, might next falls topics in discrete math be on percolation? because that would be really awesome!

Gil KalaiPost authorDear Carter, Good idea!

Gil KalaiDear Mark the program will be ready in a few days, Gil

Jackson RenkoThanks! I’ve been hunting for this EXACT thing all day. I really wish that people would write more about this. Greatly appreciated
