Period29 May - 04 Jun 2011
The meeting took place on May 30-June 3, 2011, with over 55 people in attendance. Each day had 6 to 7 talks of varying length (some talks were 30 minutes long), except for Thursday: the traditional hike was moved to Thursday due to the weather (and weather on thursday was indeed fine). The talks reviewed directions in which progress in the general field of stochastic analysis occurred since the last meeting of this theme in Oberwolfach three years ago. Several themes were covered in some depth, in addition to a broad overview of recent developments. Among these themes a prominent role was played by random matrices, random surfaces/planar maps and their scaling limits, the KPZ universality class, and the interplay between SLE (Schramm-Loewner equation) and the GFF (Gaussian free field).
