Description

Leader of the group Stochastics: Bert Zwart.

 

Many natural and man-made systems and processes are driven by random phenomena. Examples can be found in areas such as communication, energy, information, logistics, and transportation systems. In order to model, describe, and improve such systems, our group develops and studies probabilistic, operational and statistical models. Our group’s analysis of these models relies on techniques from fundamental probability theory, queueing theory, stochastic scheduling, spatial stochastics and stochastic geometry. Our work with various companies in these areas, as well as with top researchers and universities across the globe, ensures our position at the forefront of every aspect of this research field.

CWI and ProRail predict railway incidents

CWI and ProRail predict railway incidents

Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica and ProRail recently started a research collaboration in the area of the handling of incidents at the Dutch railways. It concerns a public private partnership between CWI and ProRail striking up a four year period. The research is aimed at prevention and handling of a broad spectrum of railway incidents, like disturbance of the railway infrastructure, people walking on the tracks and collisions.
