A three day workshop taking place within the Department of Mathematics, University of Sussex, 16-18 September 2019.

A three day workshop covering various topics in Probability and Mathematical Physics including random matrices, free probability, branching processes will take place at the Department of Mathematics, University of Sussex from Monday 16 to Wednesday 18 September 2019. The purpose of this workshop is to discuss some recent developments in these areas, and to explore future directions for common interactions. This is also the occasion to celebrate the new appointments of mathematicians at Sussex.
