Program Description:
Monte Carlo sampling algorithms are a central tool in many areas of science. Statistical mechanics has long been, and continues to be, a fertile area for the development of new paradigms in Monte Carlo algorithms. This program will bring together Australian and international researchers from a variety of career stages, with leading experts and early career researchers working together. Participation of women researchers will be actively sought, and participants will be from diverse disciplines such as mathematical physics, computational physics, computer science, combinatorics, and probability. The aims of the program are to make progress on rigorously analysing Monte Carlo algorithms arising in statistical mechanics, explore connections between different algorithms, and seek the discovery of new algorithmic paradigms.
