Stochastic Models in Life Sciences - postponed to September 2023

Eurandom Metaforum, 4th floor, Eindhoven

Summary The aim of this three day bilateral conference is to discuss recent developments at the interface between probability theory and the life sciences. Probabilistic models are instrumental in the understanding and mathematical description of many biological processes. In this workshop we aim at highlighting three themes, corresponding to the…

Eindhoven SPOR Seminar

Rik Versendaal (UU) Sampling simple random graphs under degree and edge-weight constraints ABSTRACT: In , the problem was studied of sampling simple random graphs with degree constraints, which is typically a hard problem. Therefore, the authors proposed a sequential algorithm that samples such graphs asymptotically uniformly at random, when the…

Eindhoven SPOR Seminar

Pieter Kleer (TiSEM)  Uniform Sampling of Graphs with given Degree Intervals ABSTRACT: Efficiently sampling graphs with given degree constraints is an important open problem, both in theory and practice. In this talk, I will consider the problem of sampling graphs with given degree intervals. The goal is to efficiently generate…

Workshop "Recent Trends in Spatial Stochastic Processes" (registration closed)

Eurandom Metaforum, 4th floor, Eindhoven

Summary This workshop aims to bring together international researchers that study interacting random systems embedded in space, covering both theory and applications. The focus is on new developments in a wide range of associated research areas such as point-process theory, random graphs, percolation theory, random tessellations, first-passage percolation, random walks,…

Debankur Mukherjee (GT) Many-server asymptotics for Join-the-Shortest Queue policy ABSTRACT: The Join-the-Shortest Queue (JSQ) policy is a classical benchmark for the performance of many-server queueing systems due to its strong optimality properties. While the exact analysis of the JSQ policy, even under Markovian assumption on the service requirements, is an…

Sjoerd Dirksen (UU) The Separation Capacity of Random Neural Networks ABSTRACT: Neural networks with random weights appear in a variety of machine learning applications, most prominently as the initialization of many deep learning algorithms and as a computationally cheap alternative to fully learned neural networks. The goal of this talk…

Workshop YEQT XV "Machine Learning for Stochastic Networks"

Eurandom Metaforum, 4th floor, Eindhoven

Summary The Young European Queueing Theorists (YEQT) workshop is organized annually and aims to bring together young researchers and world-leading experts. State-of-the-art research related to queueing theory, operations research, applied probability and related areas are discussed. The event provides an excellent opportunity for developing researchers to interact and exchange ideas…

Luca Avena (LEI) - A randomized k-centrality measure & applications to networks node immunization Tuesday, the 6th of December, 15:45 – 16:45, MetaForum MF11/12   ABSTRACT: Have you ever thought how you can “immunize" a network from an attack of a viral agent? This is a hot topic in network…

Workshop: "Recent Developments in Stochastic Duality"

Eurandom Metaforum, 4th floor, Eindhoven

Summary Duality is a key technique in Markov process theory, with applications in interacting particle systems, non-equilibrium statistical physics, and stochastic population dynamics. In recent years several new developments in the theory of duality have taken place, with applications in the above three areas. Examples include the Lie-algebraic approach to…
