We are organizing a summer school about graph limits, groups and
stochastic processes at the MTA Renyi Institute in Budapest. The
school is aimed at PhD students and young researchers, but everyone is
welcome to attend.
The topics contain dense and sparse graph convergence, the connections between large networks, group theory and ergodic theory, spectral theory of graphs and groups (in particular, the asymptotic behavior of eigenvectors, L2 theory and spectral theory of random graphs) and applications of methods in statistical physics to graph theory (in particular, stochastic processes on graphs and their limits).
Arrival: 22 June 2014, Sunday
Departure: 28 June 2014, Saturday
For application, please go to the application page. Fill out and
submit the form there. Students applying for support should also ask
their supervisor to send a short recommendation letter (typically half
page in length) to the contact e-mail address budapest.summer.school _at_ renyi.mta.hu.
The school covers full lodging and lunch for all accepted participants. There is funding available to cover the registration fee (280 USD). Please indicate in the application form if you wish to apply for this support. Participants can also apply for travel support. Note that funding available for travel support is limited and for overseas flights, there is a cap that will only be passed in exceptional cases.
The deadline for application is: 22 March 2014. Applicants will be notified about acceptance soon after this deadline. After 22 March, it is still possible to apply but participants applying in time will get preference in admission and support.
