Probability Seminar

The weekly UW Probability Seminar features talks on current research in all areas of probability theory: discrete and continuous, pure and applied. The seminar meets on Mondays from 2:30 p.m. to 3:20 p.m. The speaker and the participants usually continue their discussions at a cafe on UW campus immediately after the in-person talk.

## Current Quarter

The seminar meets in SMI 405 in Autumn Quarter 2024. Krzysztof Burdzy is the moderator.

## Credit

This seminar may be taken for credit as Math 590. Math grad students may register for as many credits as needed. If you have trouble registering, please email advising@math.washington.edu.

## Mailing List

Announcements of upcoming seminars are sent by e-mail to all interested participants. To be added to the Probability Seminar mailing list, send e-mail to the current moderator.
