Winter School on "The Interplay between High-Dimensional Geometry and Probability"

Dates: January 11-15, 2021

Venue: HIM lecture hall, Poppelsdorfer Allee 45, Bonn

Organizers: Ronen Eldan (Rehovot), Assaf Naor (New York), Matthias Reitzner (Osnabrück), Christoph Thäle (Bochum), Elisabeth M. Werner (Cleveland)

Description: The goal of the winter school is to introduce ideas and techniques from geometry, probability and analysis, with emphasis on a high dimensional setting. The interplay between these areas addresses geometric and probabilistic properties of finite dimensional objects, studying their behavior when the dimension, or a number of other relevant free parameters, grows to infinity.

The lectures are mainly directed at PhD students and postdocs.


The following speakers will each give a series of lectures:

  • Radosław Adamczak (Warsaw)
  • Franck Barthe (Toulouse)
  • Elizabeth Meckes (Cleveland)
  • Giovanni Peccati  (Luxembourg)

Additional lectures by: Apostolos Giannopoulos (Athens), Monika Ludwig (Vienna), Rolf Schneider (Freiburg)


To participate in the school, please apply via the online portal which will be available from 1st July to 15th September 2020 (CET).
