Peres is Yuval Peres: Probability on trees and networks, course notes. Parts here are the individual sections 1-8. Talk assignments are as follows.

  • Section 1 (Random Graphs): Steffen Rohde
  • Section 2 (Isoperimetric Inequalities): Jonas Azzam
  • Section 3 (Markov Type of Metric Spaces): Pietro Poggi-Corradini
  • Section 4 (Random Walks and Electrical Networks): Joan Lind and Dave White

"PDE" stands for talks on discrete and continuous boundary value problems, covered by John Garnett and Don Marshall. "Modulus" stands for talks on discrete modulus, covered by Mario Bonk and James Gill.

There will be an informal get-together Sunday night before the workshop at Montana Ale Works on 611 E Main St.
