Probability in Bath Summer 2007

There was a host of activities throughout the summer of 2007 including:

bullet visits from Prof. J. Englander and Prof. G. Kersting;
bullet a graduate course "Branching diffusions, superdiffusions and random media" given by Prof. J. Englander;
bullet the first South-West and South-Wales Probability meeting.

All of these events are sponsored by an EPSRC grant held by S. C. Harris. Click here for further details.
