  • Vladas Sidoravicius
Conference proceedings

Part of the Springer Proceedings in Mathematics & Statistics book series (PROMS, volume 299)

About these proceedings


Charles M. (Chuck) Newman has been a leader in Probability Theory and Statistical Physics for nearly half a century.  This three-volume set is a celebration of the far-reaching scientific impact of his work. It consists of articles by Chuck’s collaborators and colleagues across a number of the fields to which he has made contributions of fundamental significance. This publication was conceived during a conference in 2016 at NYU Shanghai that coincided with Chuck's 70th birthday.

The sub-titles of the three volumes are:

I.   Spin Glasses and Statistical Mechanics

II.  Brownian Web and Percolation

III. Interacting Particle Systems and Random Walks

The articles in these volumes, which cover a wide spectrum of topics, will be especially useful for graduate students and researchers who seek initiation and inspiration in Probability Theory and Statistical Physics.
