"Dynamic Random Environments"
December 14-18, 2009 (RSS)

"Dynamic random environments" constitutes a fascinating subfield of modern probability theory. Originally motivated by problems in physics, the mathematical investigation of transport in random media has been an active area of research over the last thirty years, rich in surprising effects and in mathematical challenges. Epidemics, genetics, and evolution of competing populations (from biology), catalytic systems, localization of waves, and ageing in disordered systems (from physics), and dynamic random networks (from computer science) are just a few examples where randomness in a medium is the source of interesting new phenomena, not displayed by static random media.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers from various different backgrounds (mathematics, biology, physics and computer science), allowing them to present and discuss their recent work, shed new light on existing results, and cooperate on frontier problems. The workshop brings together researchers from Europe and from North and South America. It aims to strengthen the research on "Dynamic Random Environments" within Europe. Much of the rapid and successful development in this area is due to a remarkable combination of probabilistic, combinatorial, geometric and analytic techniques. Recently there has been considerable progress on some of the core questions in the field, because of a fruitful combination of ideas. It is therefore timely to meet and share ideas. The interaction of junior and senior researchers is especially valuable, since the area is developing fast.

The workshop will focus on the following subareas:

  • Catalytic models

  • Dynamic random networks

  • Dynamics of random energy models and spinglasses

  • Metastability and aeging

  • Population dynamics. -- Random walk in dynamic random environment
