Lecture Series: Models of Time and Probability | Jürgen Jost: The Concepts of Time in the Sciences

Jan 12, 2023 | 06:00 PM

The lecture series are part of the Thematic Einstein Forum "Scales of Temporality: Modeling Time and Predictability in the Literary and the Mathematical Sciences". The forum is organised within the framework of the Berlin Mathematics Research Center MATH+ in collaboration with EXC 2020 “Temporal Communities” and supported by the Einstein Foundation Berlin.

The collaborative Thematic Einstein Forum Scales of Temporality: Modeling Time and Predictability in the Literary and the Mathematical Sciences aims to explore shared interests, common grounds and similar problems both the mathematical sciences and the Humanities, particularly the philologies and the literary studies, entail.  

In the lecture series "Models of Time and Probability", experts from mathematics (dynamical systems, analysis, probability theory, applications and modelling, biomathematics) and from literary studies (narratology, rhetoric, literary history and philosophy) will give lectures to an open audience.

Jürgen Jost (Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences (MiS) in Leipzig) on "The Concepts of Time in the Sciences":

The various sciences, like physics, biology or the neurosciences, conceptualize time differently. I shall discuss these time concepts, their properties and their shortcomings.

Upcoming lectures:

19.01.23 | Hannes Leitgeb (LMU München, Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy): Mathematical Philosophy: Past, Present, Future

26.01.23 | Xue-Mei Li (Imperial College London): Noise and Scales

2.02.23 | Paul Hager (HU Berlin): Time Scales in Rough Volatility

More information about the lecture series can also be found on the MATH+ website. The lectures start at 6:00 pm. Participation is possible both in person and online.
