Period09 Sep - 15 Sep 2018
This conference (part of a long running series) aims to cover the interplay between probability and mathematical statistical mechanics. Specific topics addressed during the 22 talks include: Universality and critical phenomena, disordered models, Gaussian free field (GFF), random planar graphs and unimodular planar maps, reinforced random walks and non-linear σ-models, non-equilibrium dynamics. Less stress is given to topics which have running series of Oberwolfach conferences devoted to them specifically, such as random matrices or integrable models and KPZ universality class. There were 50 participants, including 9 postdocs and graduate students, working in diverse intertwining areas of probability, statistical mechanics and mathematical physics.
