Dr Stefan Grosskinsky


Stefan Grosskinsky.  

Stefan Grosskinsky
Associate Professor

I have moved to TU Delft

please see my

personal homepage


Research Interests:
Applied probability theory, stochastic processes and complex systems, statistical mechanics

  • Stochastic particle systems
    theory and applications in complex systems such as population dynamics, genetic evolution, traffic modeling
  • Nonequilibrium phase transitions
    equivalence of ensembles and connections to relative entropy and large deviations
  • Scaling limits
    derivation of the large scale dynamics or the critical behaviour of stochastic particle systems

I hold a joint appointment in Mathematics and the Centre for Complexity Science.
