Workshop -- Recent advances in asymptotic probability and statistics


 Recent advances in asymptotic probability and statistics 

 with time series applications 

 University of Sydney, 10-12 December 2007 


The School of Mathematics and Statistics of The University of Sydney, is organizing a
workshop on recent advances in asymptotic probability and statistics.  The workshop will
be held at the University of Sydney, Australia, Darlington Campus, Carslaw Building,
Room 173.  

The aim of the workshop is to present recent advances and streams of research in such
topics like strong approximations, self-normalization, asymptotic expansions,
saddlepoint approximations and limit theorems for independent and weakly or strongly
dependent random variables.  

There will a short series of lectures Detecting changes in time series models given by
Lajos Horvath (University of Utah) 

Speakers include: 

 * William Dunsmuir (University of New South Wales) * Bing-Yi Jing (Hong Kong University
of Science and Technology) * Jan Mielniczuk (Polish Academy of Sciences) * Spiridon
Penev (University of New South Wales) * Barry Quinn (Macquarie University) * John
Robinson (University of Sydney) * Qiying Wang (University of Sydney) * Rodney Wolff
(Queensland University of Technology) 

We encourage postgraduate students and postdoctoral fellows especially to participate
and present their work in the areas covered by our workshop.  There is no registration
fee.  Prospective participants from AMSI member institutions may be also eligible for
