"Self-Interacting Random Walks"
March 29-31, 2006
EURANDOM, Eindhoven, The Netherlands
Programme & Abstracts| Speakers & Participants |Registration | Practical Information
The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers interested in self-interacting random walks and related areas. This includes, among others, research on random walks in random environments, various reinforced random walks, random walks in random sceneries and time evolutions of stochastic particle systems. Related topics will also be touched.
