Gibbsian point processes (winter 2017/18)

Content: The module introduces some notions on Gibbsian point processes and equilibrium statistical mechanics for students with a background in probability theory or mathematical physics. It aims at bridging the gap between analytic approaches focused on correlation functions and integral equations (e.g., Kirkwood-Salsburg) on the one hand and the probabilistic language of point processes on the other hand. Here is the last version of the lecture notes.

Research interests

Probability theory, statistical mechanics:
  • Large deviations theory, limit laws
  • Markov processes, metastability
