Cohen Centennial 2023

Aug 28, 2023 - Aug 29, 2023

A two-day workshop in the area of Applied Probability. This is a workshop devoted to the memory of J.W. Cohen. Cohen was born 100 years ago, on August 27, 1923; he was a world-leading researcher at the boundary of applied probability and stochastic operations research, with a strong emphasis on queueing theory and its application to the performance analysis of computer- and communication networks. Methodologically, he combined probabilistic and analytic methods, culminating in his magnum opus The Single Server Queue and several other books. A special issue of the journal Indagationes Mathematicae is being devoted to him; it will appear in the fall of 2023. It will contain 12-14 papers; the authors of those papers will be invited to give a presentation at the workshop.
