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).

List of participants
The deadline for application has passed.
The school covers full lodging and lunch for all accepted participants. There
is funding available to cover the registration fee (280 USD/61 595 HUF).
