17-19 September 2018
Organisers: Emre Esenturk, Colm Connaughton, Stefan Grosskinsky

Growth and disintegration processes take place ubiquitously in nature and social life at varying levels. Despite their distinct appearance many of the processes are driven by essentially similar mechanisms such as coagulation, exchange, fragmentation etc.

The workshop aims to bring together experts from three related research fields (Differential/integral equations, statistical physics and stochastic processes/probability) to explore recent developments in topics such as exchange-driven processes, coagulation, fragmentation, fluctuations in non-equilibrium systems, zero range processes and related condensation phenomena and more.
