Lectures on probability theory and statistics : Ecole d'Eté de Probabilités de Saint-Flour XXXII-2002 by Boris Tsirelson( Book )

63 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is yet another indispensable volume for all probabilists and collectors of the Saint-Flour series, and is also of great interest for mathematical physicists. It contains two of the three lecture courses given at the 32nd Probability Summer School in Saint-Flour (July 7-24, 2002). Boris Tsirelson's lectures introduce the notion of nonclassical noise produced by very nonlinear functions of many independent random variables, for instance singular stochastic flows or oriented percolation. Two examples are examined (noise made by a Poisson snake, the Brownian web). A new framework for the scaling limit is proposed, as well as old and new results about noises, stability, and spectral measures. Wendelin Werner's contribution gives a survey of results on conformal invariance, scaling limits and properties of some two-dimensional random curves. It provides a definition and properties of the Schramm-Loewner evolutions, computations (probabilities, critical exponents), the relation with critical exponents of planar Brownian motions, planar self-avoiding walks, critical percolation, loop-erased random walks and uniform spanning trees
Statistical learning theory and stochastic optimization : Ecole d'Eté de Probabilités de Saint-Flour XXXI--2001 by Olivier Catoni( Book )

21 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Statistical learning theory is aimed at analyzing complex data with necessarily approximate models. This book is intended for an audience with a graduate background in probability theory and statistics. It will be useful to any reader wondering why it may be a good idea, to use as is often done in practice a notoriously "wrong'' (i.e. over-simplified) model to predict, estimate or classify. This point of view takes its roots in three fields: information theory, statistical mechanics, and PAC-Bayesian theorems. Results on the large deviations of trajectories of Markov chains with rare transitions are also included. They are meant to provide a better understanding of stochastic optimization algorithms of common use in computing estimators. The author focuses on non-asymptotic bounds of the statistical risk, allowing one to choose adaptively between rich and structured families of models and corresponding estimators. Two mathematical objects pervade the book: entropy and Gibbs measures. The goal is to show how to turn them into versatile and efficient technical tools, that will stimulate further studies and results
Combinatorial stochastic processes : Ecole d'été de probabilités de Saint-Flour XXXII--2002 by Jim Pitman( Book )

27 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this text is to bring graduate students specializing in probability theory to current research topics at the interface of combinatorics and stochastic processes, in particular the theory of random combinatorial structures such as partitions, permutations, trees, forests, and mappings, and connections between the asymptotic theory of enumeration of such structures and the theory of stochastic processes like Brownian motion and Poisson processes. The course is a summary and review of the author's research over the last ten years, much of it joint work with coauthors David Aldous, Jean Bertoin, Steven Evans, and Marc Yor
The lace expansion and its applications : Ecole d'Eté de Probabilités de Saint-Flour XXXIV--2004 by G Slade( Book )

28 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The lace expansion is a powerful and flexible method for understanding the critical scaling of several models of interest in probability, statistical mechanics, and combinatorics, above their upper critical dimensions. These models include the self-avoiding walk, lattice trees and lattice animals, percolation, oriented percolation, and the contact process. This volume provides a unified and extensive overview of the lace expansion and its applications to these models. Results include proofs of existence of critical exponents and construction of scaling limits. Often, the scaling limit is described in terms of super-Brownian motion
The Wulff crystal in Ising and percolation models : Ecole d'été de probabilités de Saint-Flour XXXIV--2004 by Raphaël Cerf( Book )

24 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a synopsis of recent works aiming at a mathematically rigorous justification of the phase coexistence phenomenon, starting from a microscopic model. It is intended to be self-contained. Those proofs that can be found only in research papers have been included, whereas results for which the proofs can be found in classical textbooks are only quoted
Concentration inequalities and model selection : Ecole d'Eté de Probabilités de Saint-Flour XXXIII--2003 by Pascal Massart( Book )

16 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the impressive works of Talagrand, concentration inequalities have been recognized as fundamental tools in several domains such as geometry of Banach spaces or random combinatorics. They also turn out to be essential tools to develop a non-asymptotic theory in statistics, exactly as the central limit theorem and large deviations are known to play a central part in the asymptotic theory. An overview of a non-asymptotic theory for model selection is given here and some selected applications to variable selection, change points detection and statistical learning are discussed. This volume reflects the content of the course given by P. Massart in St. Flour in 2003. It is mostly self-contained and accessible to graduate students
Fluctuation theory for Levy processes : Ecole d'Eté de Probabilités de Saint-Flour XXXV-2005 by Ronald A Doney( Book )

12 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L??vy processes, i.e. processes in continuous time with stationary and independent increments, are named after Paul L??vy, who made the connection with infinitely divisible distributions and described their structure. They form a flexible class of models, which have been applied to the study of storage processes, insurance risk, queues, turbulence, laser cooling ... and of course finance, where the feature that they include examples having "heavy tails" is particularly important. Their sample path behaviour poses a variety of difficult and fascinating problems. Such problems, and also some r
Differential equations driven by rough paths : École d'été de probabilités de Saint-Flour XXXIV--2004 by T. J Lyons( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Each year young mathematicians congregate in Saint Flour, France, and listen to extended lecture courses on new topics in Probability Theory. The goal of these notes, representing a course given by Terry Lyons in 2004, is to provide a straightforward and self supporting but minimalist account of the key results forming the foundation of the theory of rough paths. The proofs are similar to those in the existing literature, but have been refined with the benefit of hindsight. The theory of rough paths aims to create the appropriate mathematical framework for expressing the relationships between evolving systems, by extending classical calculus to the natural models for noisy evolving systems, which are often far from differentiable

Equations différentielles stochastiques rétrogrades à valeurs sur les variétés by Fabrice Blache( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Cette thèse est consacrée à l'étude d'un certain type d'équations differentielles stochastiques rétrogrades (EDSR) avec une dérive f, dont les solutions prennent leur valeur sur une variété riemannienne munie d'une connexion. Dans la première partie, on étudie deux cas particulers : le cas d'une dérive f simple et le cas d'une dérive plus générale, mais seulement sur des variétés de Cartan-Hadamard. Dans la deuxième partie, on complète les résultats précédents dans un cadre plus général. Nous obtenons des résultats d'existence et d'unicité d'une solution, pour des processus à valeurs dans des domaines ayant des propriétés de convexité. Nous faisons aussi le lien avec la théorie des EDP, en particulier le problème de Dirichlet et l'equation de la chaleur sur les variétés. Enfin dans la troisième partie, on donne un résultat d'approximation des trajectoires solutions par des processus à temps discret
