ACM 118

Stochastic Processes and Regression

12 units (3-0-9)    |  second term
Prerequisites: CMS/ACM/IDS 107 or equivalent, CMS 117 or equivalent, or permission of the instructor.

Stochastic processes: Branching processes, Poisson point processes, Determinantal point processes, Dirichlet processes and Gaussian processes (including the Brownian motion). Regression: Gaussian vectors, spaces, conditioning, processes, fields and measures will be presented with an emphasis on linear regression. Kernel and variational methods in numerical approximation, signal processing and learning will also be covered through their connections with Gaussian process regression.

Instructor: Owhadi
