Field Courses (Electives): Winter Term 2017/18

 

  • Statistical Modelling of Extremes (Fortgeschrittene Ökonometrie), Y. Hoga, Mondays 12:15-13:45, R12 R06 A93, UDE, Campus Essen; start: Oct. 9th. 2017.
    Extreme value theory concerns mathematical modelling of random extreme events. Recent development has introduced mathematical models for extreme values and statistical methods for them. Extreme values are of interest in, e.g., economics, safety and reliability, insurance mathematics, hydrology, meteorology, environmental sciences, and oceanography. The theory is used, e.g., for flood monitoring, construction of oil rigs, and calculation of insurance premiums for re-insurance of storm damage. While extreme values can have dire consequences, the experience of really extreme events is always very limited. Thus, extreme value statistics is often forced to extrapolate beyond the range of observations. The course will present the fundamental statistical methods for univariate and multivariate extremes, discuss examples of applications, e.g., regarding floods or human life expectancy, provide practical use of the models, and point to some open problems.
