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, quantum computation, self-similarity, reinforced processes, and percolation. Kovchegov's work is centered around the following topics: mixing times; extending the probabilistic coupling method; orthogonal polynomials in stochastic processes, probability and statistics; quantum walks and quantum computation; occupation times; hitting times; chaos and fractals; applications of probability theory in computer and wireless networks, network coding, biological systems, economics, chemistry, and environmental sciences.
