Eindhoven SPOR Seminar

MF 11-12 (4th floor MetaForum Building, TU/e)

Rik Versendaal (UU)  Sampling simple random graphs under degree and edge-weight constraints In , the problem was studied of sampling simple random graphs with degree constraints, which is typically a hard problem. Therefore, the authors proposed a sequential algorithm that samples such graphs asymptotically uniformly at random, when the number…

Workshop: "Safe, Anytime-Valid Inference (SAVI) and Game-theoretic Statistics"

MF 11-12 (4th floor MetaForum Building, TU/e)

Summary A large fraction of published research in top journals in applied sciences such as medicine and psychology has been claimed as irreproducable. In light of this 'replicability crisis', traditional methods for hypothesis testing, most notably those based on p-values, have come under intense scrutiny. One central problem is the…

Eindhoven SPOR Seminar

Dirk Fahland (TU/e) New research challenges for statistics, probability theory, and optimization in process mining The field of Process Mining aims at getting insights into processes and organizations by building understandable models from event logs. The field originated from formal language theory, specifically Petri nets, an input event logs as…

Workshop: "Separating Integer Points in Polyhedra: Theory and Applications"

Eurandom Metaforum, 4th floor, Eindhoven

Summary Integral polyhedra are one of the central objects of integer programming, as they allow to solve combinatorial optimization problems by means of linear programming. Finding outer descriptions of integral polyhedra associated with discrete problems, however, is a challenging task and in many cases such descriptions are not known or exponentially large. To circumvent these…
