Probability is both a fundamental way of viewing the world, and a core area of mathematics. Probability theory is concerned with the analysis of mathematical models of random phenomena, as occur in many branches of science. The group Probability and Applications at QMUL is engaged in numerous research activities, including stochastic processes, random discrete structures, random matrices and stochastic optimisation, as well as in applications of probability to statistical physics, modelling of epidemics, networks, financial engineering and other areas.
