Probability Seminar

The probability seminar is a weekly seminar featuring the latest research in pure and applied probability. Speakers include internationally renowned probabilists as well as probabilistic work from related disciplines including computer science and operations research. It also presents graduate students a friendly environment to present their research.

The seminar is held weekly in 1011 Evans on Wednesdays at 3pm, except when otherwise indicated.

Abstract:
This talk deals with suitable quantifications in approximating a probability measure by an “empirical” random probability measure \hat p_n, depending on the first n terms of a sequence \{\xi_i\}_{i\ge1} of random elements. In the first part, we study the range of oscillation near zero of the p-Wasserstein distance d(p) .... Based on joint work with Emanuele Dolera.
