Eindhoven Stochastic Colloquium

Jan 17, 15:00 - 16:00
MF 11-12 (4th floor MetaForum Building, TU/e)

Jeannette Janssen (Dalhousie University) Recognizing graphs formed by a spatial random process It is a safe assumption about social networks that links are more often formed between people that have a lot in common. This can be modelled with a simple spatial model for link formation. Individuals are represented by vertices placed in a virtual space that represents their interests and characteristics. Links are formed stochastically so that most links are local, i.e. links are less likely between vertices that…

Sam Thomas (Cambridge University) Cutoff for Random Walk on Dynamical Erdos-Renyi  We study the behaviour of random walk on dynamical percolation. In this model, the edges of a graph are either open or closed and refresh their status at rate μ, while at the same time a random walker moves on G at rate 1, but only along edges which are open. In this talk I shall present recent results proving cutoff in the case when G is the complete…

Eindhoven Stochastics Seminar

Feb 8, 12:00 - 13:00

Siva Athreya (Indian Statistical Institute) Respondent Driven Sampling and Random Graph Convergence We consider certain respondent-driven sampling procedures on dense and sparse graphs. Under the assumption that the sequence of the vertex-sets is ergodic we understand possible limiting graphs. In the dense regime they can be expressed in terms of the original dense graph via a transformation related to the invariant measure of the ergodic sequence. In the sparse regime by a specific clumping procedure of the sampled vertices we…

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…
