Location: Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Cambridge, United Kingdom.
A new frontier has emerged at the interface between probability, geometry, and analysis, with a central target to produce a coherent theory of the geometry of random structures. The principal question is the following: within a given structure, what is the interplay between randomness and geometry? More precisely, does the geometry appear to be random at every scale (i.e. fractal), or do fluctuations "average out" at sufficiently large scales? Can the global geometry be described by taking a suitable scaling limit that allows for concrete computations? The goal of the programme is to gather experts from probability, geometry, analysis and other connected areas, in order to study aspects of this question in some paradigmatic situations. Several workshops will take place during the programme. For full details please see
