Events Summer Semester 2019

PhD Seminar and PhD Day

We are happy to introduce you to the talks of our PhD seminar and PhD day!

Next talk:

  • Date: 5.6.
  • Time: 4:00 - 4:30 pm
  • Room:  2.22

  • Speaker: Alexander Zass

  • Title: How should we describe spatial point patterns?

    Abstract: In this talk we look at the world of point processes, which are a way of describing spatial point patterns. We start from the natural definition of the Poisson point process, and then proceed to add a Gibbsian interaction.

    We will see how proving that such processes exist is already non trivial.

Upcoming dates:  10.7.
