The school aims to introduce graduate students and young researchers to probabilistic and statistical models, including deterministic models focused on applications in environment and epidemiology. It is also aimed at non-specialist practitioners wishing to connect their research to the field of random modeling. The participants will be provided with an introduction to basic material and necessary background before proceeding with the more advanced topics. Beside lectures, we are also planning sessions devoted to solving exercices and computers experiments. This school also aims to promote the development of mathematics in Madagascar providing new research opportunities not only for participants from the University of Fianarantsoa and other Malagasy universities but also for universities of the Indian ocean and African mainland subregion.
Official language of the school: French
This school will take place in two stages: a first online part in 2021, then a second face-to-face part in 2022.
