What is ... a Green's function?

This page hosts information on Marcel Ortgiese's talk "What is ... a Green's function?" at the "What is ...?" seminar. The talk will take place on Friday, July 8, 1:00pm at the BMS Loft at Urania. This talk will help you better understand the talk by Wendelin Werner, which will start at 2pm.

We will again be ordering delivery pizza. If you would like to order pizza with us, please arrive to the "What is ...?" seminar by 12:45pm.


The concept of a Green's function arises when trying to solve certain partial differential equations. We will highlight the interplay between analysis and probability theory and see how to solve these equations in a probabilistic way and in particular we will give an interpretation of the corresponding Green's functions.
