Workshop May 17-21 2010
Probability & Geometry in High Dimensions
Université Paris-Est Marne-la-Vallée
Laboratoire d'Analyse et de Mathématiques Appliquées

CNRS Marne-la-Vallée ANR

The aim of this workshop is to reflect on recent developments in Probability and Geometry in High Dimensions with emphasis on interactions with other fields of mathematics such as compressed sensing, sparse statistical problems, random matrices, and empirical processes. The workshop will take place on the campus of Université Paris-Est Marne-la-Vallée.


Schedule and participants


Below the talks slides (or articles) in PDF. The order follows the workshop schedule.


Be sure to book your hotel very early (at least a month in advance), since accomodations in Paris or near the university are difficult to find. It is recommended to select a hotel close to RER line A.

Location and directions

The Paris-Est Marne-la-Vallée Campus (Cité Descartes) encompasses among other structures the department of mathematics of the University, located in the Copernic building. The workshop will take place in the Auditorium of the Copernic building.

Paris-Est Marne-la-Vallée Campus

Coming from Paris by RER line A, get off the train at the station NOISY-CHAMPS (the best is to get off from the station at the head of the train when coming from Paris). See the RATP website for RER/Metro connexions and schedules. The Copernic building is accessible in few minutes from the RER station NOISY-CHAMPS.
