Random discrete structures

March 20th - March 24th, 2023

Münster, Germany


The workshop centers around two topics:

  • Random graphs and stochastic geometry
  • Branching and mathematical biology
The aim is to provide an opportunity of exchange between the different groups and to attract young researchers to the field.
