Eindhoven SPOR Seminar

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…

Workshop: “Recent Developments in Stochastic Duality”

Eurandom Metaforum, 4th floor, Eindhoven, Netherlands

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…

YES Causal Inference

Eurandom Metaforum, 4th floor, Eindhoven, Netherlands

Summary Causal inference is at the center of research. Perhaps because of its central position in so many sciences, multiple perspectives have arisen from which causal inference is studied. Two popular ones are the potential outcomes framework and the graphical approach. In this workshop, researchers from many domains (mathematics, (bio)statistics,…

YEP XVIII: “Spectra of random graphs and related combinatorial problems”

Eurandom Metaforum, 4th floor, Eindhoven, Netherlands

Summary Since the first workshop in 2004, the Young European Probabilists (YEP) series has spawned 17  highly successful editions on a wide range of topics. The theme of its 18th edition, will be spectra of random graphs, random matrices and related combinatorial problems. The study of matrices with random entries…

Workshop: Numerical Analysis of Stochastic Partial Differential Equations (NASPDE)

Eurandom Metaforum, 4th floor, Eindhoven, Netherlands

Summary The NASPDE workshop has been hosted approximately once a year since 2007. The aim of this three-day workshop is to gather leading researchers working on various aspects of numerical methods for stochastic PDEs and/or PDEs with uncertain input, as well as their applications in science and engineering. Topics to…
