RECORDING THE LIVING MEMORY OF YOUNG PROBABILISTS
The Cournot Foundation is collecting interviews with young researchers in probability. How do they define probability? How do they relate to its past, and how do they see its future? How did their own knowledge develop? How do they work and interact with each other? Is probability a field of mathematics like any other? The interviews provide a picture of the contemporary development and the recent history of probability through their perceptions of the discipline, of their own work and of the diffusion of probability in society. A film, based on the interviews, will present a collective portrait of today’s young probabilists.
