Probability and Analysis

Probability and Analysis

10 - 16 June, 2012, Będlewo

The conference was organized in honour of Stanisław Kwapień's 70th birthday by eight mathematicians who obtained their PhD's under Prof. Kwapień's supervision. The main aim of the conference was to bring together mathematicians from the areas of analysis and probability, in particular those whose works related to the life-long scientific interests of Professor Kwapień. Fourty talks were delivered covering a number of topics that lied on the interface of Functional Analysis, Probability, Harmonic Analysis, and applications, including stochastic and functional inequalities, applications of martingale methods in Fourier and harmonic analysis, stochastic integration and stochastic differential equations, noncommutative and quantum probability, Banach space theory, interpolation spaces, asymptotic convex geometry and complexity theory.
