Probability on Algebraic and Geometric Structures Conference | June 5-7, 2014

An international research conference celebrating the distinguished careers of Philip Feinsilver, Salah Mohammed, and Arunava Mukherjea.

The Department of Mathematics at Southern Illinois University is pleased to announce an international conference celebrating the careers of three Mathematicians who have made important contributions to understanding a wide range of topics concerning probability measures and the behavior of stochastic processes on algebraic and geometric structures.

Contributed papers are sought in the areas of:  
• Probability and random processes on groups, semigroups , and structures such as Clifford algebras and quantum groups.  
• The analysis of random walks on Cayley graphs and other combinatorial structures.
• Algebraic methods for the analysis of homogeneous and non-homogeneous Markov chains and products of random matrices
• Stochastic partial differential equations and random process on manifolds and other geometric structures
• Finite and infinite dimensional stochastic dynamical systems
