Multiplicative chaos is a theory developed by Kahane in the eighties. It is based on the
lognormal multiplicative chaos proposed by Mandelbrot to model turbulence, as well as on
the theory of random multiplicative cascade measures, which again was introduced by
B. Mandelbrot as a simple model exhibiting fractal and statistical features similar to those
observed experimentally in velocity fluctuations of fully developed turbulence.
The mathematical study of the latter model was initiated by Kahane and Peyrière.
The aim of this school is to introduce PhD students and young post-docs to these fields
highlighting some recent developments.
The core of the school consists of two mini courses, each with
five 90-minute lectures by
Julien Barral (Paris):
Geometric and dynamical aspects of Mandelbrot multiplicative cascades.
Eero Saksman (Helsinki):
Introduction to multiplicative chaos.
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.

The spring school is primarily aimed at PhD studens and postdocs, but everybody
is welcome to attend. Participants will be given the opportunity to deliver contributed talks.
The school is a continuation of the Spring schools
