From Analysis to Stochastics: A Workshop along Ulrich Stadtmüller's Scientific Interests

The aim of this workshop is to bring together internationally leading as well as young researchers from the diverse but closely interrelated areas of analysis, probability and statistics. Likewise various applications with a focus on biometric and economic questions shall be covered.

The selection of topics is closely related to the scientific interests of Ulrich Stadtmüller  since he started at Ulm University in the 1970ies.

The workshop takes place at Ulm University, Germany, from Monday, April 3rd to Tuesday, April 4th, 2017.


A registration form can be found here. If you wish to attend the workshop, please fill out the registration form and send it back to Eva Nacca via e-mail, fax (please use the fax number given in the form) or regular mail by March 15, 2017.
