The Department presents a series of regular colloquiums and seminars, engaging with universities and industry bodies around the world.
New classes of random discrete distributions on infinite simplex and their stick-breaking properties
Friday 26 May 12:00pm
Starting with a stable subordinator, the sequence of ordered jumps up till time 1, omitting the r largest of them, and taken as proportions of their sum defines a 2-parameter distribution on the infinite dimensional simplex.
From Longitudinal Data Analysis to Functional Data Analysis: Wearable Sensor Accelerometer Measured Physical Activity Data Analysis
Friday 12 May 12:00pm
Wearable sensor data acquisition and computing has the potential to be a revolution in public health, for they provide much more accurate measurement across period of time.
Friday 21 April 12:00pm
Joint work with Antoine Deleforge, Radu Horaud and Emeline Perthame.
Friday 24 March 12:00pm
Friday 17 March 12:00pm
General Semi-Markovian Modelling of Limit Order Books
Thursday 16 March 12:00pm
Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) algorithms, such as the Metropolis Algorithm and the Gibbs Sampler, are extremely useful and popular for approximately sampling from complicated probability distributions through repeated randomness. This talk will use simple graphical simulations to explain how these algorithms work, and why they are so useful.

Asymptotic properties of the partition function and applications in tail index inference of heavy-tailed data
Friday 16 September 12:00pm
Heavy tailed distributions are of considerable importance in modelling a wide range of phenomena in finance geology, hydrology, physics, queuing theory and telecommunication.
