Stieltjes afternoon on the
work of two Fields medal 2006 winners
March 23rd, 2007
On Friday March 23 a lecture afternoon for an audience of general mathematical background will be held at EURANDOM, concerning the work of two of the winners of the 2006 Fields medals: Wendelin Werner and Andrei Okounkov. Werner received the prize "for his contributions to the development of stochastic Loewner evolution, the geometry of two-dimensional Brownian motion, and conformal field theory", and Okounkov "for his contributions bridging probability, representation theory and algebraic geometry".
The aim of this afternoon is to give a broad impression of some key aspects, ideas and consequences of the above works.
|13.45-14.45 h.||Alexander Gnedin (Utrecht)||On the work of Andrei Okounkov on random partitions|
|15.10-16.00 h.||Frederico Camia (VU)||An introduction to Werner's work on conformally invariant systems (I)|
|16.10-17.00 h.||Vincent Beffara (Lyon)||An introduction to Werner's work on conformally invariant systems (II)|
