# Colloquium: Ofer Zeitouni (Weizmann), "Extremes of logarithmically correlated fields"

2:30pm to 3:30pm

## Location:

Manchester Building (Hall 2), Hebrew University Jerusalem

Title: Extremes of logarithmically correlated fields

Abstract: The general theory of Gaussian processes gives a recipe for estimating the maximum of a random field,

which is neither easy to compute nor sharp enough for obtaining the law of the maximum. In recent years, much effort was invested in understanding the extrema of logarithmically correlated fields, both Gaussian and non-Gaussian. I will explain the motivation, and discuss some of the recent results and the techniques that have been involved in proving them.
