Links between analysis and the theory of stochastic processes are numerous. One of the best known is probably the Fokker-Planck equation, which provides a very strong and immediate link between PDE theory and the theory of diffusion processes, as already noticed by Einstein. Similarly, the theory of optimal mass transport is of immediate interest both to analysts and to probabilists. A number of problems situated right at the boundary between analysis and probability theory have recently been at the centre of intense attention. Examples include the problems surrounding the now-called “Otto calculus” or the study of the speed of return to equilibrium for Fokker-Planck equations. The aim of this workshop is to bring together communities of researchers working on related aspects of the theory of stochastic processes, but coming either from both analytical and probabilistic backgrounds. As such, this will be an opportunity to start new collaborations between somewhat “parallel” communities.

Some practical details
The nearest railway station to the University is Coventry Railway Station, approximately 2.5 miles away.
Here is a map of the Warwick campus (where the Mathematics Department is in the Zeeman Building, numbered 37).
Here is some information on local buses (U1 and U2 connect Coventry-University-Leamington Spa; 12 connects Coventry-University-Kenilworth-Leamington Spa). Kenilworth is 4 miles from the University. Leamington Spa is 8 miles from the University, and has its own railway station.
The cost of parking on Campus is £3 per day.
Lectures will be in room B3.03 in the Zeeman Building (which is suitable for blackboard, OHP or computer presentations).
Where possible, visitors should obtain an EDUROAM account from their own university to enable internet access whilst at Warwick.
