Research

Research Field: 
Probability and Stochastic Processes
Research Description: 

Yevgeniy Kovchegov works in the field of probability and stochastic processes. His research interests include the mathematical models of statistical mechanics, interacting particle systems, models of mathematical biology, stochastic self-similarity, and quantum computation. Kovchegov's work is centered around the following topics: self-similar random trees; extending the probabilistic coupling method; orthogonal polynomials in stochastic processes, probability and statistics; mixing times; occupation times; hitting times; quantum walks and quantum computation; chaos and fractals; applications of probability theory in computer and wireless networks, network coding, biological systems, economics, chemistry, and environmental sciences.
