Münster Research Fellow Kilian Raschel for the second time in Münster
Prof. Dr. Kilian Raschel (CNRS, Université d'Angers) joins our Cluster as a Münster Research Fellow for the second time. He works on the connections between combinatorics and probability, a principal topic being random walks in cones seen from a combinatorial and a probabilistic point of view.
During his stay in Münster from 1 to 31 July 2022 he will further conduct joint research with Prof. Dr. Gerold Alsmeyer and Prof. Dr. Zakhar Kabluchko on probabilistic and combinatorial aspects of certain persistence problems for autoregressive processes.
An essential part in his research is the study of generating functions by counting paths. With coauthors, Kilian Raschel has proved two important conjectures in combinatorics, one by Bousquet-Melou-Mishna and one by Gessel. He has also worked on applications in biology, Martin boundary theory for Markov chains, discrete harmonic functions and certain problems in statistical mechanics. He holds an ERC starting grant (2018-2022).
