Participants of the Workshop: Interacting Particle Systems in Mathematical Biology (July 25-28)

Workshop: Interacting Particle Systems in Mathematical Biology

Dates: July 25-28, 2022
Venue: HIM lecture hall (Poppelsdorfer Allee 45, Bonn)
Organizers: Nadia Loy (Torino), Jaromir Sant (Warwick)



Interacting particle systems is a wide and growing field of probability that is devoted to the rigorous analysis of models arising within many disparate fields such as statistical physics, economics and biology. The structure, development and behaviour within biological systems may involve very complex phenomena that can be identified, understood and analysed through mathematical models. In particular, various temporal and spatial scales may be involved, ranging from individual based models (e.g. subcellular organisms, genome structure, or individual infection mechanisms) to population aggregate descriptions (e.g. tissue development and cancer, population genetics, or population epidemiology). At the individual microscopic level, biological phenomena are intrinsically subject to stochastic fluctuations and evolve in a random manner even though they respond to common mechanisms.
In this workshop we aim to gather researchers interested in interacting particle systems in mathematical biology, with a range of sessions focusing on stochastic analysis to describe biological phenomena, coagulation-fragmentation models, multiscale (from IBs to macroscopic) models for cell migration and chemotaxis, inference, ancestral processes in population genetics, and stochastic models of epidemiology.
