Small Deviations Probabilities
and Related Topics. II

12-19 September, 2005

Saint-Petersburg, Russia


The St. Petersburg Department of Steklov Institute of Mathematics and the Euler International Mathematical Institute are organizing the second international conference "Small Deviation Probabilities and Related Topics. II" to be held in St. Petersburg, Russia, 12-19 September 2005.

The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers working on small deviation in probability and related fields (such as stochastic processes, approximation theory, quantization, spectral theory of operators, statistical physics, etc.), and to promote the exchange of different approaches and ideas.

The first conference of the series was held in Oberwolfach, 2003, see

This meeting will be a part of celebration of the 90-th anniversary of academician Yuri Vladimirovich Linnik (1915-1972), outstanding mathematician, the founder of modern St.Petersburg school of Probability and Statistics.

The organizing committee of the conference consists of

The tentative list of the main speakers, subject to further confirmations, consists of

A. Ayache, M.S. Birman, I.A. Ibragimov, J. Fill, B.S. Kashin, D. Khoshnevisan, M. Ledoux, G. Luschgy, P. Moerters, D. Nualart, K. Ritter, Q-M. Shao.

The conference will be hosted by Euler International Mathematical Institute (EIMI) at St.Petersburg, Russia. See more about EIMI on the website

A conference fee will be levied from the participants. More details will be given in the second announcement.

The number of participants is LIMITED due to the restricted capacity of Euler Institute. This is why you are kindly asked to inform us about your intention to attend the conference as soon as possible, by sending an e-mail to preferably, prior to November, 1, 2004

The second announcement with technical details will be distributed in January-February of 2005.
