The Meeting

The mathematical study of random geometric graphs is an active subject in probability with
many real world applications. The aim of this school is to introduce PhD students and young
post-docs to some recent developments in this field. The core of the school consists of
two mini courses, each consisting of five 90-minute lectures by

Peter Mörters (Köln): Scale-free random geometric graphs.
(lecture notes)

Mathew Penrose (Bath): Connectivity and components of random Euclidean graphs.
(lecture notes)

There will also be some invited talks in the general topic area of the school. In addition,
participants, in particular PhD students, are encouraged to deliver short talks of 10min to
introduce themselves and their research interests.

Here is the programme booklet of the spring school
(you will receive a printed copy at your registration):

Covid regulations

The event will take place under a 2G+ regulation. I.e. either
- a booster vaccination or
- [(double) vaccination or recent recovery (within the last 6 months)] and a daily updated test
is required.
This is possibly additional to any hygiene and safety rules in force by law at the time
of the school.
