Manchester Stochastic Networks Day

Monday 13th June 2016

The Manchester Stochastic Networks Day is intended as an informal, yet, collaborative meeting between researchers interested in probability and networks both inside and outside the University of Manchester.

The talks with discuss mathematics techniques used to understand and analyses network phenomenon in different application areas: epidemics, chemical reaction networks, Internet advertising, call centers and network congestion.

Speakers and Talks

Networks for stochastic spreading processes
Thomas House (Manchester)
Does the Past Predict the Future? Delay Announcements in Service Systems
Rouba Ibrahim (University College London)
Networks, Auctions and Truthfulness
Peter Key (Microsoft Research)
Alignment-free network comparison
Robert Gaunt (Oxford)
Timescales in Biochemical Reaction Networks
Mark Muldoon (Manchester)
Shortest-Queue and Longest-Queue in Networks
Neil Walton (Manchester)
