DEPARTMENT OF STATISTICS


NCSU Extremes Reading Group  -
 Joint with the Statistical Analysis of Extremes in Geophysical Science group at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR)

The purpose of the reading group is to provide an opportunity for discussion of both recent and classic work in Extreme Value Theory and Analysis.  The meetings are informal and questions/ideas are encouraged.  If you have a paper that you are interested in discussing and/or presenting, please contact Elizabeth Mannshardt.  Presentations of your own work are welcome, or a summary of a paper or book chapter(s) is appropriate as well.

 

During Fall semester 2013, the extremes reading group will meet as scheduled in conjunction with the NCAR Extremes reading group. Please contact Elizabeth Mannshardt if you would like to join the group.  All interested students and faculty are encouraged to attend.
