Medallion Lecture: Recent results and open problems concerning motion in random media

Friday, August 5, 2005 - 1:30pm - 2:30pm
EE/CS 3-180
Ofer Zeitouni (University of Minnesota, Twin Cities)
The talk will describe the current knowledge and some of the challenges in the study of motion in random environment, focusing on the model of random walk in random environment and the related model of diffusions in random environments. For the latter, I will describe a CLT in the case where the environment is a small perturbation of the constant environment.
