Foredrag — The Department of Mathematical Sciences is proud to announce Professor Paul Embrechts, ETH Zurich, as the next distinguished Harald Bohr lecturer. He will Tuesday 10 October 2017 give a lecture titled “The mathematics of risk”.
Date & Time:
Lundbeckfond Auditorium (Biocentre, Ole Maaløes Vej 5)
Magdalena Musat, MATH
Paul Embrechts, Professor of Mathematics, ETH Zurich:
“Current events around the world bring the consequences of natural catastrophes almost daily to our attention.
In this talk I will discuss how mathematical and statistical methodology, through the field of Extreme Value Theory (EVT), offers a scientific language useful in a broader societal discussion around such devastating events. I will review some of the main mathematical results and indicate where necessary future research is needed.”
After the lecture there will be a reception in “Vandrehallen” (HC Ørsted Institute, Universitetsparken 5) at the MATH-building.
