New Frontiers in Random Geometry (RaG)
An EPSRC Programme Grant in Probability
September 2011 – August 2017

Cambridge Probability was awarded a Programme Grant (only the second such grant in mathematics) that funded the programme ‘New Frontiers in Random Geometry’ (RaG) for six years from 1 September 2011. The thrust of RaG was to explore geometrical aspects of random processes, with emphasis on processes of fragmentation, embedding, and aggregation. The research was conducted within the Statistical Laboratory of the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics.

The Investigators, Nathanael Berestycki, Geoffrey Grimmett, and James Norris, worked with an Advisory Board comprising Yuval Peres, Stanislav Smirnov, Balint Toth, and Wendelin Werner. The grant of around £1.7M (fEC) funded a 6 year project that brought a number of postdoctoral researchers to Cambridge and permitted an extensive visitor programme.
