The CRM has approved the creation of a new laboratory in probability, the Groupe de probabilité de Montréal/Montréal probability group. Lab members pursue research in a broad range of areas, spanning theoretical and applied, continuous and discrete probability. A particular focus is on the development and analysis of probabilistic models for real-world phenomena from physics, biology, statistics and computer science. The creation of the lab underscores the high level of research in probability in the Montréal area.
The initial members of GPM/MPG are Louigi Addario-Berry (McGill), Louis-Pierre Arguin (Montréal), Linan Chen (McGill), Luc Devroye (McGill), Don Dawson (Carleton), Alex Fribergh (Montréal), Sabin Lessard (Montréal), Bruce Reed (McGill) Lea Popovic (Concordia), Wei Sun (Concordia) and Xiaowen Zhou (Concordia); and associate members Marco Bertola (Concordia), Andrew Granville (Montréal), Dmitry Jakobson (McGill) and Vojkan Jaksic (McGill).
