Mini – Course: High-dimensional Statistics

Thời gian: 08:30:22/07/2024 đến 16:30:26/07/2024

Địa điểm: Trường Đại học Khoa học Tự nhiên - ĐHQG TP. Hồ Chí Minh 227 Nguyễn Văn Cừ, Quận 5, TP. Hồ Chí Minh

Objective: Classical statistical methods developed during the last century were suitable when the number of observations is much larger than the number of parameters to infer. Unfortunately, many fields such as astronomy, genetics, medicine or neuroscience produce large and complex data sets, and consequently with models containing a large number of parameters for which classical tools are not adapted. This issue is often referred as the curse of dimensionality. The goal of this course is to provide most of fundamental statistical tools to face with high-dimensional data. The aim is to present the main concepts and ideas on some selected topics of high-dimensional statistics based on modern nonparametric methodologies such as multiple testing, kernel, wavelets and penalized estimators with a special focus on Lasso estimation. Theoretical aspects are motivated by applicable developments of presented methods.
