Nordic summer school on
COUPLING METHODS IN PROBABILITY
in Ellös, Sweden, June 14-19, 1999
The development in the last few decades
of the coupling method in pure and applied
probability has been remarkable. Its basic idea is to define two or more
random elements on the same probability space, in order to draw
conclusions about their distributions. This idea has turned
out to be useful in a wide range of contexts, from elementary topics
to advanced research.
This summer school is devoted to the theory and applications of the
coupling method. It is directed to graduate students with a primary
interest in probability. No prior
knowledge of the coupling method is required, but the participants
should be familiar with basic probability founded on measure theory.
A limited number of
postdocs and other junior researchers may also participate.
number of participants is limited to about 50.
We welcome participants from all countries: Nordic as well as others.
The language of the school is English.
