- Description of the seminar:
- In probability theory, a Lévy process is a stochastic process with independent, stationary increments: it represents the motion of a point whose successive displacements are random, in which displacements in pairwise disjoint time intervals are independent, and displacements in different time intervals of the same length have identical probability distributions. The most well known examples of Lévy process are the Brownian motion and the Poisson process. In this seminar we want to introduce Lévy processes in a mathematically rigorous way and study statistical techniques whenever discrete observations of Lévy processes are available.
- Possible presentation topics are:
Talks Subject Source 1. Lévy processes and applications (K) 1 & 2.1 2. Properties of Lévy processes (K) Selected topics of 2 & 3 3. Spectral estimation of the Lévy triplet (LM) Belomestny & Reiß: 1 - 4 4. Rate Optimality for the triplet estimation (LM) Belomestny & Reiß: 5 5. Estimation of a Lévy density (LM) Comte & Genon-Catalot 1-4.1.2 6. Adaptive Estimation of a Lévy density (LM) Comte & Genon-Catalot 4.1.3 7. Estimation of a Lévy density on a compact set (LM) Comte & Genon-Catalot 4.2 8. Estimation of a Lévy density - kernel estimators (LM) Comte & Genon-Catalot 4.3 9. Estimation of Gaussian and non-Gaussian components (LM) Comte & Genon-Catalot 5-7 10./11. Parametric estimation of Lévy processes: MLE approach (LM) Masuda 1-2 12./13. Parametric estimation of stable Lévy processes (LM) Masuda 3 14./15. Uniform tail-probability estimate of statistical random fields (LM) Masuda 4 - Each participant is expected to give a 60 minutes. A handout containing the most important definitions and results as well as short sketches of the proofs should be prepared for the other participants.
