First passage percolation and related models

August 3 to August 7, 2015

at the

American Institute of Mathematics, San Jose, California

organized by

Antonio Auffinger, Michael Damron, and Jack T. Hanson

Original Announcement

This workshop will be devoted to the study of first passage percolation on $\mathbb Z^d$ and related models. The main goal is to go beyond the scope of exact solutions methods and develop and share techniques that may further the recent advances on the field.

The workshop will bring together researchers working on these topics to solidify the current state of the art.

The main topics for the workshop are

Material from the workshop

A list of participants.

The workshop schedule.

A report on the workshop activities.

A list of open problems.
