Probability Seminar

The probability seminar is a weekly seminar featuring the latest research in pure and applied probability. Speakers include internationally renowned probabilists as well as probabilistic work from related disciplines including computer science and operations research. It also presents graduate students a friendly environment to present their research.

The seminar is held weekly in 1011 Evans on Wednesdays at 3pm, except when otherwise indicated.

Abstract:
The lace expansion is one of the primary tools for proving that probability models in high dimensions have mean field behaviour. I will explain the previous sentence by describing joint work in progress with David Brydges and Mark Holmes in which we develop a continuous time lace expansion. Our method allows us to analyze n-component field theories when n is zero, one, or two. The case n=2 is new.
