What we do

The Probability Group in the Statistics Department carries out research in random graphs and networks, random trees, branching processes, Lévy processes, interacting particle systems, queueing processes, models from statistical mechanics, coalescent processes and random walks. The Group’s work is applied in population genetics, mathematical biology, network modelling and demography and there are natural intersections with the Stochastic Analysis Group, the Combinatorics Group and the Mathematical and Computational Finance Group in the Mathematics Institute.
