Title: Stochastic Dynamics on Graphs
Abstract: Many physical and intangible structures, such as the internet and collaboration networks, can be abstracted as graphs. With the goal of understanding the various processes that take place on these structures, such as the spread of a virus or the cultivation of an idea, we study stochastic processes on graphs. I will discuss a few of these models, and outline some directions for future discovery.
