Speaker: Rui Zhang


Dependency graphs have been widely used in probability via Stein’s method, cumulants, etc. to establish normal or Poisson approximation, or to obtain concentration results. They are also heavily used in combinatorics, such as the Lovasz local lemma, Janson’s inequality, etc. I will talk about some recent developments regarding dependency graphs, including some concentration bounds and the probability of the non-occurrences of events, by giving applications in statistical learning and random graphs.

About Statistics, modelling and operations research seminars

Students, staff and visitors to UQ are welcome to attend our regular seminars.

The events are jointly run by our Operations research and Statistics and probability research groups.

The Statistics, modelling and operations research (SMOR) Seminar series seeks to celebrate and disseminate research and developments across the broad spectrum of quantitative sciences. The SMOR series provides a platform for communication of both theoretical and practical developments, as well as interdisciplinary topics relating to applied mathematics and statistics.
