Amis de l'IHES

A public conference on Thursday 24 May 2018

The association “Les Amis de l’IHES” will organise a conference on May 24 2018 at 5pm, at the Marilyn and James Simons Conference Centre.

Hugo Duminil-Copin (IHES) will give a talk entitled:

« What is a random path: from the Avogadro’s number to macromolecules? ».

In this talk several questions will be addressed: How do we build a random path? What happens if we force this way to never go back through the same place? And in what way can a physical and mathematical theory of such objects enlighten us on the number of atoms in matter, or on the spatial localization of a polymer??

The talk will be followed by a musical interlude. Paloma Kouider will play piano pieces by F. Schubert, A. Dvorak, W. A. Mozart, F. Mendelssohn, R. Schumann, J. Brahms L. V. Beethoven.

Please note that the talk will be in French.
