How can randomness be made more controllable?

International conference on the initiative of the Collaborative Research Centre 1283

Mathematics can describe dynamic processes such as weather patterns and stock prices with equations. If a sudden volcanic eruption disrupts the weather or a war unexpectedly upsets stock prices, mathematics speaks of a random incident. Researchers, especially in the field of stochastic analysis, want to better understand, describe and use this randomness. This is also a focal topic at the Collaborative Research Centre (SFB) 1283 “Taming uncertainty and profiting from randomness and low regularity in analysis, stochastics and their applications” at Bielefeld University. From 3-7 September, researchers will be welcoming around 100 mathematicians from all over the world to the International Conference on Stochastics and Its Applications (ICSAA) in Bielefeld.

“We will not be concentrating on individual cases, but rather looking for concepts with which we can better describe randomness mathematically. For this project, we are bringing together international experts in the field of stochastic analysis to Bielefeld to discuss the latest research findings and approaches,” explains SFB spokesman Professor Dr Michael Röckner, organiser of the conference, and adds: “If we understand the mechanisms better, then we can tame ‘bad’ uncertainty and profit from ‘good’ uncertainty,” says the mathematician. This fundamental mathematical research is important pioneering work in order to expand the fields of application of  continuously developing theories and tap into new ones. These range from the natural sciences physics, biology and chemistry to computer science and economics.

Mathematicians from all over the world are travelling to Bielefeld for the conference, among them researchers from the universities of Bonn, Beijing, Shanghai and Wuhan (China), Cambridge and London (Great Britain), Jerusalem (Israel), Pisa (Italy), Kyoto (Japan) and Seoul (South Korea), Minneapolis and Seattle (USA). “We are particularly pleased that promising young international researchers are also taking part in the conference,” says Michael Röckner.

This is the 9th International Conference on Stochastic Analysis and Its Applications. It is based on the initiative of Chinese, German and Japanese mathematicians who first brought together international researchers in the field of stochastic analysis in Seattle in 2006. Conferences followed in Bonn, Beijing and Seoul, among others.

Collaborative Research Center 1283 “Taming uncertainty and profiting from randomness and low regularity in analysis, stochastics and their applications” develops concepts and theories to better describe “good” and “bad” randomness and uncertainty in mathematics and its applications. Researchers from mathematics, economics, physics, and mathematical biology work together. In May 2017, the SFB was approved by the German Research Foundation (DFG), which is providing funding to the tune of 2.5 million euros annually for the first four years.
