Research Seminar "Representations and Probability 1"

Type: Optional course (faculty)
When: 1, 2 module
Language: English
ECTS credits: 3

Course Syllabus

Abstract

The seminar is mostly aimed to 3-4th year bachelor students, as well as master and PhD students. Senior participants are expected to deliver a talk on the seminar. The seminar topics are the mix of modern results in areas related to representations and probability theory, and older areas, which are prerequisites to the former, as well as keep their own value.
