The first Seasonal Institute of the Mathematical Society of Japan (MSJ-SI)--"Probabilistic Approach to Geometry"-- was held at Kyoto University, Japan, on July 28-August 8, 2008. The conference aimed to make interactions between geometry and probability theory and to pursue new directions in these research areas. This volume contains the proceedings, selected research articles based on the talks, including survey articles on random groups, rough paths, and heat kernels by the survey lecturers at the conference. Readers will benefit from exploring this developing research area.

Volumes in this series are freely available electronically 5 years post-publication.

Published for the Mathematical Society of Japan by Kinokuniya, Tokyo, and distributed worldwide, except in Japan, by the AMS.


Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in geometry and probability theory.
