Analytic Combinatorics and Probabilistic Number Theory:
Closing Conference of the FWF-Network

July 2 - 6, 2012, TU Wien, Vienna (Austria)

On this site you can find the following informations:


The conference marks the closing of the National Research Network "Analytic Combinatorics and Probabilistic Number Theory" and shall give an account of the subjects covered by this network:

  • Dynamical systems

  • Enumerative and Analytic combinatorics

  • Probabilistic number theory

  • Uniform distribution and numerical integration

The main intention is to give an overview over the achievements and the future perspectives in these areas with an emphasis on the thematic context of the network.
