Central Limit Theorem Workshop

13 Apr 2016, by ablahatherell in Sponsored events

The Central Limit Theorem is one of the cornerstones of probability and statistics, and finds applications in a number of disciplines including number theory, random matrix theory and mathematical physics. This workshop will have four talks on recent results, both from the viewpoint of theoretical methods to prove convergence, and in terms of application areas.
