Welcome to the web page of the University of Warsaw Research Project "The Concentration of Measure Phenomenon" run under the National Science Center contract 2015/18/E/ST1/00214 in the years 2016-2021

The main objectives of the project is to explore several aspects of the theory of concentration of measure and its applications in high dimensional probability (in particular in Random Matrix Theory, Quantum Information Theory and in Markov Chain Monte Carlo Theory). The three main research areas of the project are

- Concentration of measure for non-Lipschitz functions
- Concentration of measure for convex functions
- Deviation inequalities for additive functionals of dependent sequences of random variables

A short description of the project is available at the National Science Center Site
