Rafael de la Llave - An introduction to KAM theory II: The twist theorem

The KAM (Kolmogorov Arnold and Moser) theory studies the persistence of quasi-periodic solutions under perturbations. It started from a basic set of theorems and it has grown into a systematic…

Gabor Lugosi - Combinatorial Testing Problems

In these lectures we discuss some statistical problems with an interesting combinatorial structure behind. We start by reviewing the "hidden clique" problem, a simple prototypical example…

Lutz Warnke - Large girth approximate Steiner triple systems

In 1973 Erdos asked whether there are n-vertex partial Steiner triple systems with arbitrary high girth and quadratically many triples. (Here girth is defined as the smallest integer g \ge 4 for…

Sara van de Geer - Sharp Oracle Inequalities for Non-Convex Loss

There will be three lectures, which in principle will be independent units. Their common theme is exploiting sparsity in high-dimensional statistics. Sparsity means that the statistical model…
