Prof. Dr. Alexey Chernov and I
Raleigh, NC, April 5, 2012
On April 1, I will fly to Raleigh, NC with US Airways. After unpleasant experience with United Airlines (lost luggage and no diner on international flight), I hope to enjoy the flight. Here is my itinerary: Los Angeles → Phoenix → Charlotte → Raleigh. Two stops at the airline’s major hubs is, in fact, an advantage, since I have to finish many things on my way. I have never been to the East Coast. This will be my first trip.
As I have already mentioned, I was invited to give a talk at the Southern California Probability Symposium 2001. After some thinking, I have decided to talk about the MCMC revolution that has happened over the last decade in the field of reliability engineering that lies at the boundary of engineering sciences and applied probability. This talk will be in the spirit of this paper by Persi Diaconis of Stanford.
Southern California Probability Symposiums have a reach history.
This is the schedule for SCPS-2011:
It is a great pleasure and honor for me to be in this company!
I was invited to give a talk at the Southern California Probability Symposium. This is an annual one-day event, attended by probabilists from UC San Diego, UC Irvine, UCLA, USC, Caltech, UC Santa Barbara and elsewhere. There will be five talks of 40-50 minutes duration. Mine would be one of them.
I have just proudly accepted this invitation.
The next step is to come up with a topic for my talk :)
