Our department is a leading research school in probability theory and related fields. Areas of internationally recognized research include: geometry of random fractals, percolation and statistical mechanics, chaotic dynamical systems, spectral clustering, interacting particle systems, random walks, random media, stochastic analysis, random graphs and network theory, statistics. Below you can find a more detailed list of topics.
The important role played by our department in the scientific community is shown by our publications, invited lectures, prizes, collaborations with partners from mathematical centres all over the world, editorial work, etc. We are also hosting the MTABME Stochastics Research Group, funded by the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.
On the other hand, we care a lot about applications of our expertise to reallife problems: we have had several joint projects with top international companies in finance, insurance, telecommunication and commerce, in which many students have also participated.
Our department is fully or partially responsible for three research seminar series.
