Workshop: Branching and Interacting Particle Systems


Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz

 27th February - 2nd March 2023


Speakers Programme Registration Venue Contact


Branching random walks are a natural model for various systems of population dynamics and genetics. A key question is understanding the influence on spatially-dependent branching mechanisms of interactions caused, for example, by selection, competition, random environments. It is also important to have mathematical tools to model one or more coexisting spatial populations competing for resources. This workshop aims at bringing together younger colleagues and experts in the field in order to provide a stimulating discussion environment and share the most recent developments on these challenging research topics.

This workshop is part of the DFG Priority Programme SPP 2265: Random Geometric Systems funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft.​
