Colloquium on Limit Theorems
in Probability and Statistics
The János Bolyai Mathematical
Society and the A. Rényi Institute
of Mathematics, Hungarian Academy of Sciences
are organizing the 4th Colloquium on Limit Theorems in Probability and
Statistics. Earlier conferences in this series were held in 1974 (Keszthely),
1982 (Veszprém) and 1989 (Pécs); the special occasion for
this meeting is to honour the 65th birthday of Professor Pál
Révész, who was the organizer of the previous conferences.
The conference will be held in Balatonlelle, a resort area at
lake Balaton, about 140 km (90 miles) from Budapest, in a hotel with a
Topics to be covered include
(but are not restricted to):
Sums of independent and weakly dependent random
Extreme value theory
Empirical and quantile processes
Local times and other additive functionals
Wiener and related processes
Nonparametric and change-point problems
E. Csáki (Co-Chair), D. Szász (Co-Chair), I. Berkes (Secretary),
A. Földes, T. F. Móri.
The scientific program of the conference starts
on Monday, June 28, 10 am and ends on Friday, July 2, early afternoon.
An excursion is planned on Wednesday afternoon. Participants are expected
to arrive at Balatonlelle on Sunday, June 27.
