Infinite Divisibility I - The Elements : STATISTICS SEMINAR Other events...
Among other things, in recent years I have investigated infinite divisibility properties of some new probability laws: generalized Planck, Lambert, and generalized stable. Although infinite divisibility is now important in physics and quantitative finance, it has dropped out of the undergraduate curriculum.

So the first of two talks is aimed at introducing the elements of the subject. I will cover concepts and examples, with a few intuitive proofs to give a feel for why things are as they are.
Speaker(s) Tony Pakes, School of Mathematics and Statistics
