Lévy Lecture

A Levy speaker is invited and sponsored by Elsevier to give a lecture at the annual International Conference on Stochastic Processes and their Applications.

We are honored to announce that Professor Gérard Ben Arous, Director of the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at the New York University will present the Lévy Lecture at SPA 2013. The Lévy lecture is a plenary lecture presented at the annual SPA conference, sponsored by the journal Stochastic Processes and their Applications.

This year’s conference SPA 2013, also known as the 36th Conference on Stochastic Processes and Their Applications, will be held on the campus of the University of Colorado, Boulder, USA from July 29 to August 2, 2013.
