Workshop: Friday, May 31, 2013. Speakers only by invitation

Main Lectures by

Richard A. Davis (Columbia University, Dept. of Statistics) Thomas Mikosch (University of Copenhagen, Dept. of Mathematics)

The PhD Course and the Workshop will be given at the Department of Mathematics, University of Copenhagen, HC Ørsted Institute.

See the Infomation below how to get to the Department.

Generous financial support for Richard A. Davis by the Villum Kann Rasmussen Foundation is greatfully acknowledged.

The Course aims at graduate students and researchers interested in modeling and estimation of extremes in space and time.

The participant is expected to have some background in probability theory and statistics.

The Course will give an introduction to topics of modern extreme value theory including

  • Max-stable random processes and fields
  • Regularly varying time series
  • Clustering of extremes
  • Measures of extremal dependence in space and time and their estimation
  • Time series models with heavy tails
  • Poster presentations of participants are welcome.
