Statistical physics, combinatorics and probability: from discrete to continuous models
Physique statistique, combinatoire et probabilités : approches du continu par le discret

7 September – 18 December 2009

A trimester at the Centre Émile Borel, Institut Henri Poincaré

Organizers: Mireille Bousquet-Mélou, Jérémie Bouttier, Grégory Miermont, Gilles Schaeffer

This thematic term, held in the Institut Henri Poincaré in the heart of Paris, aimed at bringing together mathematicians, physicists and computer scientists interested in problems at the interface between statistical mechanics, combinatorics and probability theory. Special emphasis has been put on the interplay between discrete and continuous formalisms, which had recently been the subject of intense research, leading to a precise definition of universal objects such as the celebrated SLE but also CRT, ISE, GFF, etc. Participants have also become acquainted with the state-of-the-art techniques: analytic combinatorics, integrability, high-dimensional methods...

The program revolved around series of lectures by experts:

as well as seminars by participants, and several workshops:
