# Prague Phase Transitions

Letní škola

A three-week Graduate Course on various topics in Mathematical Statistical Physics will be held in Prague, for the third time. Each lecturer will present a series of 2--3 talks, on Mathematics and Physics of Phase Transitions, accessible for graduate, post-doc, as well as advanced undergraduate students.

The lectures will take place at the Center for Theoretical Study and the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles University. In addition to 2 two-hour lectures each day, talks and seminars by post-docs and students are planned. Some additional informal activities in Prague and its surroundings will be organized in the remaining time.

Each lecturer is going to present a minicourse consisting of up to 3 talks (a talk is be default something between 3/2-2 hours).

**Gordon Slade** Statistical mechanics and super-Brownian motion

**September 6--10**

**Thierry Bodineau** Wullf L_1 theory

**Anton Bovier** Fluctuations and extremes in disordered systems

**Lincoln Chayes** Random clusters

**Enzo Olivieri** Restricted complete analyticity, finite size conditions and renormalization group maps

**André Verbeure** On Bose condensation

**Bálint Tóth** Hyperbolic conservation laws (An introduction through concrete examples)

**September 13--17**

**Wolfgang Koenig** Self-attracting path models and parabolic Anderson model

** Jacek Miekisz** Statistical mechanics of evolutionary games

**Enzo Olivieri** Restricted complete analyticity, finite size conditions and renormalization group maps

**Charles Pfister** Selected topics in thermodynamical probability theory

Unfortunately, no financial subsistence can be provided. However, living expenses for the duration of the entire Course will be less than 600 $ (lodging will be available for about 100 $ per week, additional living costs are less than 100 $ per week).
