Themes for Learning Sessions

This is an overview of themes for the Learning Sessions (31 July - 4 August 2017) that will be part of the program Genealogies of Interacting Particle Systems at the Institute for Mathematical Sciences of the National University of Singapore. Based on the preferences of participants, we have chosen nine learning sessions that will be organized. The intended format of the Learning Sessions is briefly explained on the webpages of the program. Two people (moderators) together prepare an introduction to the topic in the form of an introductory lecture of (roughly) 90 minutes and formulate questions and problems to be discussed in the session. Moderators have a genuine interest in learning the topic but are not themselves authors of the papers to be studied.
