|Title:||Fields Institute International Symposium on Asymptotic Methods in Stochastics, in Honour of Miklós Csörgo's Work on the occasion of his 80th birthday
|Description:||In 2012 Professor Miklós Csörgo will be celebrating his 80th birthday, as well as his 50 years of continuous publications in Stochastics (Probability and Statistics) since 1962. On this occasion there will be an International Symposium on Asymptotic Methods in Stochastics. The symposium is part of our ongoing series of workshops at Carleton University, organized with annually varying themes in diverse areas of probability and stochastic processes.
The symposium will honour 50 years of Professor Miklós Csörgo's research in Probability Theory, Stochastic Processes and Mathematical Statistics. The topics of the conference can be broadly described as Asymptotic Methods in Stochastics. Among others, the invited speakers will discuss:
* limit theorems and invariance principles; * strong and weak approximation methods; * empirical and quantile processes; * change-point analysis; * self-normalized partial sums processes; * path properties of Gaussian and related stochastic processes; * theory of random walks and their applications; * times series analysis (weak and long range dependence, GARCH sequences); * functional data analysis; * simulation, computational probability and statistics; * U-statistics and bootstrap methods; applications in econometrics and finance.
