Percolation on a graph is a random process that divides the edges into two groups: open and closed. Events such as "vertices v and w are connected via a path of open edges" occur within this process. We investigate the dependencies between these...

Every group admits a faithful unitary representation on some Hilbert space. In other words, every group can be realized concretely as symmetries on a Hilbert space. From these representations we can construct certain operator algebras known as C*...

Translational tiling is a covering of a space (such as Euclidean space) using translated copies of one building block, called a "translational tile'', without any positive measure overlaps. Can we determine whether a given set is a translational tile...

Directions

The PIMS offices are located on the 4th floor of the Earth Sciences Building (2207 Main Mall). If using the elevator, our offices will be directly across when you get to the 4th floor. If using the main staircase, the offices will be to your right once you reach the 4th floor.

Airport to PIMS UBC by Bus

From Vancouver Airport (YVR), take the Canada Line Skytrain to Broadway City Hall Station. Get off the platform and walk up to street level.

The PIMS offices are in the Earth Science Building on Main Mall which doesn't permit vehicular traffic. The nearest parking lot (or drop off point for Taxis) is on West Mall near the West Parkade at the intersection of West Mall and Bio. Sciences Road (see this map).

Downtown Vancouver to PIMS UBC by car

When leaving Downtown Vancouver, follow signs for UBC (see this map).
