Workshop: "Francesca Romana Nardi: A life in probability, building communities across Europe"

Jul 18 - Jul 22

Summary

Francesca passed away on October 21, 2021, in the midst of a vibrant life. Colleagues from all over Italy and Europe will gather in Florence to talk about mathematical topics that were very close to her heart.

Francesca made ground-breaking contributions to the area of interacting particle systems, in particular, to the theory and application of phase transitions, critical behaviour and metastability. She had a wonderful drive and enthusiasm, with which she inspired the people around her, junior and senior alike. She reached out to all of us, always with a smile.

Francesca initiated a national probability seminar in Italy, which became an instant success and continues to bring together probabilists, analysts and physicists throughout Italy, and to draw speakers from all over the world.

We want to celebrate her life, her scientific contributions, and the warmth that she brought and left behind. The meeting is open to everyone interested.
