Description

The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) will host the "Random Structures in High Dimensions" workshop from June 26th to July 1st, 2016.



Some of the most interesting structures in our world come in random
sizes and shapes, for example, long polymer chains, the network of
links making up Internet, the tree-like structures in computer science
and evolution. These random geometries provide interesting challenges
to researchers working in probability and combinatorics, because
essential concepts are realised in new ways. The purpose of the
workshop is to learn more about each other's recent progress.



The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, are collaborative Canada-US-Mexico ventures that provide an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry.

The research station in Banff is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT). The research station in Oaxaca is funded by CONACYT.
