Kai Lai Chung Memorial Lectures

Established in 2013. These lectures bring a Senior Distinguished Mathematician to Stanford University for a few days (once a year) and help bring the Probability Community together. It also serves as an opportunity to recall Professor Lai's years at Stanford and his achievements as a mathematician and educator.


The Kai Lai Chung Lecture Series is generously funded by a gift to the Mathematics Department from the Chung family.
