University of British Columbia


On coin tosses, atoms, and forest fires


Fields Medal winner, Martin Hairer will survey some of the mathematical objects arising naturally in probability theory, as well as some of their surprising properties. In particular, he will demonstrate how one of these objects was involved in the confirmation of the existence of atoms over 100 years ago and how new properties of related objects are still being discovered today.


Martin Hairer is also one of our PIMS & CRM Probability Summer School lecturers from 12-16.
