Potsdam-Toulouse Doktorandenkolleg

The French-German graduate school Potsdam-Toulouse called Stochastic processes and statistical machine learning is funded by the French-German University  for the period  2018-2021. It involves mathematicians of both universities. Aims of this binational doctoral structure named CDFA 01-18 :

- Integration of doctoral students into a common larger research programm

- Scientific education by specialized serial lectures, short term and long term visits of guest scientists, workshops

- Increase of the mobility of young researchers (a typically 6-12 month's stay at the foreign partner university)

- Possibility of novel international collaborations

- Possibility of joint PhD-supervisions by two scientific teams from distinct countries.

The concerned mathematics research domains are the Probability Theory - in particular the field of stochastic processes- and  the mathematical statistics - inparticular the field of Statistical Learning.

French speaker: Prof. Patrick Cattiaux

German speaker: Prof. Sylvie Roelly

Workshop "Stochastic processes and statistical machine learning I"

Potsdam, 14-16 February 2018

Workshop "Stochastic processes and statistical machine learning II"

Toulouse, 13-15 March 2019

German-Ukrainian cooperation

between the Institute of Mathematics of University Potsdam and the Institute of Mathematics at the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, funded by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. This alumni programme allows sponsorship by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation of long-term research collaborations between academics in Germany and abroad.

This Research Group Linkage provides funding mainly for reciprocal research visits and for two specialist conferences. The first one was

Workshop "Singular diffusions: analytic and stochastic approaches I"

Potsdam, April 1 - 3, 2019

   

       

- DAAD Leonhard-Euler Program (2012-2014).

Cooperation with University T. Shevchenko in Kyiv.

2012-2013: Project ID 55518603 Analyse feiner Eigenschaften zufälliger Prozesse.

2013-2014: Project  ID 57044593 Feine Eigenschaften stochastischer Prozesse.

In that framework organisation of two minicourses done in Berlin/Potsdam from Prof. Alexei Kulik (March 2013) entitled "Ergodic rates for Markov chains and processes" and from Prof. Andrey Pilipenko (December 2013) entitled "Stochastic differentional equations with reflection", published by Potsdam University Press.

The following Ukrainian students obtained founds to visit Potsdam University: Daryna Soboleva, Tetiana Kosenkova, Taras Tymoshkevych, Vitalii Senin and Yurii Ganychenko.

- Agreement on research, educational and cultural cooperation (2013-2016) between the Faculty of Science of the University of Potsdam (Germany) and the Mechanics and Mathematics Faculty of Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv (Ukraine)

- DAAD Research Grant for young academics  (2016-2017)

for the postdoctoral researcher Dr. Yurii Ganychenko.

- Alexander von Humboldt Georg Forster-Fellowship  (2017-2019)

for the postdoctoral researcher Dr. Yurii Ganychenko.

 

Cooperation Potsdam-Bogotá

Since several years the Chair of Probability develops scientific collaborations with Dr. M. Högele, from Universidad de los Andes. See e.g. the publications.

Since 2016, the University Potsdam funded - in the framework of the Programme KoUP - a yearly Workshop in Bogotá organised jointly by the Chair of Probability (Potsdam) and the department of Mathematics of the Universidad de los Andes.

2016: Random models with applications in the natural sciences

2017: Stochastic processes with applications in the natural sciences

2018: Random and spectral methods with applications in statistical physics

The proceedings of the 2016 Winterschool/Workshop are published by the Potsdam University Press. One finds here the digital version.

Cooperation with Rwanda

In Spring term 2018, the young researcher Samuel Sindayigaya (first person from the right ) from Ruhengeri (Rwanda) visited the Chair of Probability, to cooperate with Sylvie Roelly.

Their joint project concerns the study of birth-death random models, with immigration and emigration and the incidence of a partial catastrophe. Applications to the demography of Rwanda are also considered.

Potsdam-Nanterre Doktorandenkolleg

The French-German graduate school Potsdam-Nanterre called Applications of Stochastic processes was funded by the French-German University  for the period  2006-2008 and 2009-2011. It involved mathematicians of both universities. The concerned mathematics research domains were the Probability Theory and Spectral Theory.

This binational doctoral structure named CDFA 01-06 allowed to integrate youg researchers into a common larger research programm, to organize specialized serial lectures abroad, short term visits of guest scientists, and a yearly workshop.

Moreover a joint PhD-supervision of R. Murr took place.
