Birzeit 2018 Conference “Randomness, Graphs, Trees, Walks, Statistics”

The RGTW2018 conference on “Randomness, Graphs, Trees, Walks, Statistics” initially scheduled on February 17-22, 2018 is postponed to August 27-30, 2018. The location of the conference will be Birzeit university.

The main topics of the conference will be random graphs, trees and walks. There will also be lectures on dynamical systems, stochastic networks and statistics.

Palestinian mathematicians, academics or advanced students are warmly invited to attend the conference.

The organisers: Hani Kabajah and Pierre Nicodeme

This conference is mainly intended to foster future collaborations between Palestinian and French universites or research centers; enhancing collaborations with US or European Institutions is also hoped for. The main topic of the conference is randomness in a broad sense, including topics of probability or statistics, with a special focus on random graphs and trees, and random walks. Contributions related to algorithms on graphs and trees are also welcomed. Besides their great theoretical interest, random graphs and trees have numerous applications: world-wide web, biological networks, statistical criteria of decision, software and hardware programming and architecture. Random walks have been the subjects of intensive researchs during the last years; the methods used go from combinatorics and singularity analysis to large scale compute algebra. Very often, discrete structures have continuous limits, by instance brownian motions for discrete random walks; this allows some fruitful interplay between discrete mathematics and probability theory.
