## Probability Seminar: Cluster expansions and fixed points

• Date: 11/18/2009
Lecturer(s):
William Faris (University of Arizona)
Location:

University of British Columbia

Description:

Cluster expansions give convergent expressions for measures on infinite dimensional spaces, such as those that occur in statistical mechanics. One approach to these convergence questions is via fixed points for infinite dimensional increasing functions. Sometimes it is not so difficult to show that there is a fixed point, indeed, a unique least fixed point.

Schedule:

3:00pm - 4:00pm, WMAX 110.
