University of Oxford, 27th July – 7th August 2020

The domain of integrable probability seeks to understand universal phenomena through exactly solvable probabilistic systems of algebraic and representation theoretic origin. This two-week postgraduate mathematics summer school will feature mini-courses and research talks on methods to find and analyze such solvable systems, as well as on more probabilistic approaches to expand the universality classes around them.

Eight mini course speakers will each deliver three hours of lectures. Daily problem sessions and exercise presentations will help to reinforce the material from the courses. In addition to the mini course lectures, guest speakers will present research talks designed to complement the mini course topics.

Organisers: Alexei Borodin (MIT) and Ivan Corwin (Columbia)

Mini course lecturers: Jinho Baik (Michigan), Hugo Duminil-Copin (IHES), Vadim Gorin (MIT and Wisconsin, Madison), Rick Kenyon (Yale), Greta Panova (USC), Jeremy Quastel (Toronto), Fabio Toninelli (Lyon 1), Michael Wheeler (Melbourne)

Research Talk Speakers: Amol Aggarwal (Harvard), Evgeni Dimitrov (Columbia), Yan Fyodorov (KCL), Alan Hammond (UC Berkeley), Alisa Knizel (Columbia), Pierre Le Doussal (ENS Paris), Leonid Petrov (Virginia), Tomohiro Sasamoto (Tokyo Inst Tech), Li-Cheng Tsai (Rutgers), Jon Warren (Warwick), Nicos Zygouras (Warwick)

For graduate students or early career researchers who work in this area or nearby fields.


Student places are offered with accommodation and weekday meals.

This summer school is jointly funded by the Clay Mathematics Institute and the Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research, with support from the Mathematical Institute of the University of Oxford.
