Our one-month program on New Developments in Free Probability and Applications has started. After a one-week workshop on the more theoretical side, there will be now two weeks of introductions and survey talks, as well as seminar talks, before we finish with another workshop on the (potential) applications of free probability.
Here is the schedule of talks for this week; they will be held in room 5340, 5th floor, Andre-Aisenstadt building on the campus of the Universite de Montreal.
Note that the second talk on Friday has changed; Felix Leid’s talk has been moved to next week, Ben Hayes will talk instead.
