David Aldous’s Home Page

I have retired from Berkeley, effective end-June 2018. However I will continue with light-duty research and professional activities. In particular I have been updating and expanding my open research problems page. But I am focussing more on my ongoing “Probability and the Real World” and my “Essays and Musings” activities, below.
