Spatial Statistics concerns the analysis of data observed at spatially scattered sites. In this seminar, we will study probabilistic and statistical foundations of the geostatistical approach, which focuses on the use of Gaussian random fields.

The seminar will be offered within the Master Program. Students are expected to present their talks in English, and to provide a handout (two to four pages) in either English or German, with the contents of the presentation summarized in their own words, and with all references used properly cited. Each seminar presentation will be based on a research paper. Students interested in this seminar should meet at

Tuesday, February 11th at 13:15, in room 5A-09, Allianz-Gebäude (05.20).

Prerequisites include an introductory course in probability and statistics (Einführung in die Stochastik or equivalent) and an advanced course in probability and measure (Wahrscheinlichkeitstheorie or equivalent).

The seminar will be offered as a block course, with date and location to be determined.
