What should I know if I want to participate?
The Seminar is offered as part of the Master Program in Mathematics. Nevertheless, if you are interested in probability theory you are very welcome to participate and contribute with a presentation. Preknowledge in probability theory and stochastic processes are of great advantage. Don't hesitate to send me an e-mail for more information:
