    Kyle Boelte: IMG Selfies, Memoir, and the World Beyond the Self



    When I was a teenager in Colorado during the late '90s, I liked to climb 14ers — 14,000-foot mountains. I'd often hike with friends, and at... Continue »

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The intersection of probability and physics has been a rich and explosive area of growth in the past three decades, specifically covering such subjects as percolation theory, random walks in random environment, disordered systems, interacting particle systems and their many connections to statistical mechanics. The last decade was particularly fruitful for all these topics. This book reflects this development and marks also the first decade of the Brazilian School of Probability. This volume consists of a collection of invited articles, written by some of the most distinguished probabilists, most of whom have been personally responsible for advances in the various subfields of probability.
