Gabor Lugosi gives a set of 3 TRIAD lectures on combinatorial statistics

Primary tabs

Distinguished Professor Gabor Lugosi (Pompeu Fabra University, Barcelona) will give a set of 3 exciting lectures on combinatorial statistics, starting Monday, October 15. More details on these lectures are below. Dates, time, and locations: Monday, Oct 15, noon - 1 pm, Groseclose 402 Thursday, Oct 18, 3-4 pm, Skiles 006 Thursday, Oct 25, 11 am - noon, Skiles 006 Title: Lectures on Combinatorial Statistics Gabor Lugosi, Pompeu Fabra University, Barcelona Abstract. In these lectures we discuss some statistical problems with an interesting combinatorial structure behind. We start by reviewing the "hidden clique" problem, a simple prototypical example with a surprisingly rich structure. We also discuss various "combinatorial" testing problems and their connections to high-dimensional random geometric graphs. Time permitting, we study the problem of estimating the mean of a random variable. Thanks are due to our colleague, Vladimir Koltchinskii, for arranging this visit. Please write to Vladimir if you would like to meet with Professor Gabor Lugosi during his visit, or for additional information.
