Eindhoven Stochastics Seminar

Sep 12, 15:45 - 16:45
MF 11-12 (4th floor MetaForum Building, TU/e)

Richard Post (TU Eindhoven) Complex nanomaterials: a stochastic view In biomedical applications (such as therapeutic drug delivery), it is of paramount importance to be able to measure the nanoscale distribution of biological molecules (ligands, for ligand-receptor interaction) on biological surfaces (of the nanoparticles carrying drugs). This allows researchers to produce new medicines that will cure diseases that have resisted till today treatment. To this end, from a technological perspective, new powerful microscopes where developed and are nowadays used to study…

Corli van Zyl (North-West University, Potchefstroom, South Africa) Signed sequential rank cumulative sum charts CUSUMs based on the signed sequential ranks of observations are developed for detecting location and scale changes in symmetric distributions. The CUSUMs are distribution-free and fully self-starting: given a specified in-control median and nominal in-control average run length, no parametric specification of the underlying distribution is required in order to find the correct control limits. If the underlying distribution is normal with unknown variance, a CUSUM…

A very nice conference dinner at the PSV stadium! Summary The Young European Queueing Theorists (YEQT) workshops are organized on a yearly basis, and this year the 13th edition of the workshop will take place in October 2019. The aim of these workshops is to bring together young researchers, PhD students or recently appointed lecturers and assistant professors, and world-leading experts in order to share and discuss research related to queueing theory, operations research, applied probability and related areas. This event…

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

Joost Jorritsma (Eindhoven University of Technology) Typical weighted distance in preferential attachment models - Interpolating small and mini worlds Information diffusion in networks can be modeled by first passage percolation, which can also be seen as an SI (susceptible - infected) model. In this talk I will discuss the model for two (non-spatial) preferential attachment models where the degrees follow a power law with parameter in (2, 3): once a preferential attachment graph on N vertices is created, we equip…

Tim Hulshof (TU Eindhoven) A scaling limit for random walk in a very restrictive random environment Random walk on a lattice has Brownian motion as its scaling limit. Random walk on a slightly damaged lattice also has a Brownian scaling limit. But when the damage is so severe that the lattice (almost) falls apart into only finite pieces, the random walk suddenly moves orders of magnitude more slowly, and the scaling limit (if it exists) must have dramatically different properties.…

Eindhoven Stochastics Seminar

Nov 28, 16:00 - 17:00
MF 13 (5th floor, MetaForum Building, TU/e)

(please note: different room!!) Johannes Schmidt-Hieber (UTwente) Towards a statistical foundation of deep learning Recently a lot of progress has been made in the theoretical understanding of deep learning. One of the very promising directions is the statistical approach, which interprets deep learning as a statistical method and builds on existing techniques in mathematical statistics to derive theoretical error bounds. The talk surveys this field and describes future challenges.

Kay Bogerd (TU Eindhoven) Detecting small communities in inhomogeneous random graphs Many networks are organized in communities, with certain groups of vertices being more densely connected than others. When these communities are large enough they can easily be detected, whereas small communities can be more difficult, especially when the network is also inhomogeneous. In this talk, we consider the problem of detecting whether an inhomogeneous random graph contains a small community. We show when a scan test can asymptotically detect…
