"Wolfgang Doeblin: A Mathematician Rediscovered".
A demonsration was presented by the aithors of the film,
Agnes Handwerk and Harrie Willems, and commented by the specialists
B.Lifshits and A.Borodin.
Wolfgang Doeblin, one of the great probabilists of the 20th
century, was already widely known in the 1950s for his fundamental
contributions to the theory of Markov chains. His coupling method
became a key tool in later developments at the interface of
probability and statistical mechanics. But the full measure of his
mathematical stature became apparent only in 2000 when the sealed
envelope containing his construction of diffusion processes in
terms of a time change of Brownian motion was finally opened, 60
years after it was sent to the Academy of Sciences in Paris. The
film of Agnes Handwerk and Harrie Willems documents scientific and
human aspects of this amazing discovery and throws new light on the
startling circumstances of his death at the age of 25.

Lifting the curse of dimensionality: numerical integration in
Richard Bellmann coined the phrase "the curse of dimensionality"
to describe the extraordinarily rapid increase in the difficulty
of most problems as the number of variables increases. A typical
problem is numerical multiple integration, where the cost of any
integration formula of product type obviously rises exponentially
with the number of variables. Nevertheless, problems with
hundreds or even thousands of variables do arise, and are now
being tackled successfully. In this talk I will describe recent
strategies, mathematical settings, and constructions with which
suitable integration problems (from mathematical finance, for
example) are being successfully handled.
