Probability at UBC |

The University of British Columbia

Probability theory is the study of random events and processes. A mathematical discipline in its own right, probability theory also plays an important role in many other areas of mathematics, such as partial differential equations, analysis, and combinatorics. It provides the theoretical basis for statistics. Probability is also an applied science, with important applications in statistical mechanics, mathematical biology, finance, theoretical computer science and telecommunications.
The UBC Mathematics Department is an outstanding centre for research in Probability. New: The 2017 PIMS Summer School in Probability will be held June 5-30, 2017 at UBC, with long courses by Marek Biskup and Hugo Duminil-Copin, and mini-courses by Sandra Cerrai, Christina Goldschmidt, and Martin Hairer. |
