Seminars on Stability Problems for Stochastic Models have a long tradition. They were started by Prof. V.M. Zolotarev in the 1970’s. The topics of the first seminars were close to the interests of the Founder and included: limit theorems, probabilistic metrics, stability problems, characterization of probability models and stable distributions. Prof. Zolotarev invited to the meetings leading probabilists from all over the world. Traditionally seminars aimed at bringing together people from Eastern and Western parts of Europe to share their expertise, new results, exchange the ideas and discuss open problems. The themes evolved with time, the meetings become more and more international. Traditionally Polish probabilists have been active participants of the Seminars. One of the meetings, in 1999, was held in Poland – in Nałęczów. In this century Seminar took place in Hungary, Bulgaria, Spain, Latvia, Italy, Romania and Israel. The main topics of the comming Seminar are the following:

  • Limit theorems and stability
  • Asymptotic for stochastic processes
  • Stable distributions and proces
  • Topics in mathematical statistics
  • Queuing theory and modeling of communication systems
  • Discrete probabilistic models
  • Characterization of probability distributions
  • Insurance and financial mathematics
  • Generalized stability and convolution

The last theme is new for this seminar series. It is designed to attract mathematicians working on geometric aspects of probability measures.
