Aspects of Random Walks
one-day event in memory of Iain MacPhee
The meeting was aimed at researchers (including postgraduate students) with an interest in random walks and related topics.
The Iain MacPhee memorial event, adjacent to the random walks meeting, was a celebration of Iain's research interests, which, in addition to random walks, included queueing theory, optimization, and other topics in probability theory and stochastic processes.
Our friend and colleague Iain MacPhee passed away on 13th January 2012. Some information that he wrote about his work can be found here.
The printed programme includes abstracts of the talks and a brief mathematical biography of Iain MacPhee.
The event was supported by the EPSRC, the LMS, the Department of Mathematical Sciences, and the Institute of Advanced Study.
The local organizers of the meeting were Nicholas Georgiou, Ostap Hryniv, Mikhail Menshikov, and Andrew Wade.
