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:
This talk is about the structure theory of measure-preserving systems: transformations of a finite measure space that preserve the measure. Many important examples arise from stationary processes in probability, and simplest among these are the i.i.d. processes. In ergodic theory, i.i.d. processes are called Bernoulli shifts. Some of the main results of ergodic theory concern an invariant of...
