School of Mathematics and Statistics: Probability Group

Sheffield has a proud tradition of research and teaching in both probability and statistics, dating back to the early 1950s under Geoffrey Jowett and Hilda Davies. In 1965 Professor Joe Gani was appointed as the first professor and head of the new Department of Probability and Statistics which separated from the Mathematics Departments. 

The Probability Group's research interests include: 

Linked with the group is The Applied Probability Trust, which publishes two major international journals (Journal of Applied Probability and Advances in Applied Probability, both founded by Joe Gani.)
