Mathematical Statistics and Probability Theory

The Oberseminar "Spezielle Stochastische Probleme" is organized by Prof. Axel Bücher, Prof. Peter Kern and Prof. Holger Schwender. Talks are given both by master- and Phd-students in Düsseldorf as well as by invited experts from other universities. It takes place either in seminar room 25.22 01.81 and/or online as a webex-meeting regularly on Wednesdays at 4.30 pm.

Guests are very welcome to the talks and are invited to register via for Prof. Bücher's mailing list. You will then receive invitations and information about the upcoming talks.

Below you find an overview of current and past talks of master- and Phd-students as well as experts beginning summer semester 2018.
