Segal-Bargmann Transform in Non-commutative Probability

Natasha Blitvic (Indiana)

I will give an introduction to non-commutative probability, a vibrant area at the interface of (classical) probability, operator algebras, combinatorics, and mathematical physics. We will discuss some ways in which the non-commutative theory parallels and contrasts with the classical theory. The motivation will be the recent joint work with T. Kemp on the extension of the Segal-Bargmann analysis to an interesting two-parameter family of non-commutative probability spaces.

Stochastic PDEs and Turbulence

Nathan Glatt-Holtz (Virginia Tech)

I will survey some recent results concerning the ergodic theory of nonlinear stochastic PDEs and describe how these results have bearing on various statistical theories of turbulent fluid flow.
