讲座一:赵凯峰博士讲座
讲座题目:贝叶斯建模及有效算法
讲座摘要:近些年,贝叶斯方法在统计学及相关领域得到了长足的发展(如贝叶斯统计、概率图模型等),渐渐形成了一个重要的学科分支。其建模思路的一致性及相关算法的有效性使其在数据处理、分析和建模等领域得到了广泛的应用。本次报告将以报告人的科研成果为例,简述贝叶斯方法在统计学习领域中几个典型的应用实例。具体包括其在半参模型、分位数回归模型、变量选择、成分识别等热点问题中的应用。同时,此次报告也将介绍若干贝叶斯方法中常用的有效算法。

讲座二:王南伟博士讲座
讲座题目: High-dimensional Graphical Model Learning
讲座摘要:Graphical model is a classical statistical model for identifying the conditional independence relationship among random variables. Nowadays high throughput sequencing technology in genomic study brought new challenges in both graphical model learning and parameter estimation. In this talk, I will talk about my phd research in discrete graphical models and the application of graphical models in genome wide association study.

讲座三:周宗政博士讲座
讲座题目:Phase Transitions of Face-cubic Model on the Complete Graph
讲座摘要:In this talk, I will give an example of how large deviation analysis can be applied to study phase transitions of statistical mechanical models. We focus only on the complete graph, on which making rigorous analysis is possible. The model we considered is called n-component face-cubic model, and the nature of its phase transitions on the complete graph is still an open question since introduced in 1975. In this work, using large deviation analysis, we prove limit theorems for the magnetization which reveals that the nature of phase transitions is continuous for n <= 3 and discontinuous for n > 3.

讲座四:刘升恒博士讲座
讲座题目:Structure-Aware Time-Frequency Analysis Algorithms for Sparse Nonstationary Signals
讲座摘要:In this seminar, novel time-frequency analysis algorithms exploiting the a priori knowledge on the signal structures will be introduced. In particular, a numerical algorithm will be presented for the fast computation of large-scale discrete fractional Fourier transform when the signal spectrum can be sparsely represented in the fractional Fourier domain. Also, its application to the coherent integration of accelerating targets in passive bistatic radars will be addressed. In addition, a comprehensive scheme for robust astronomic signal reception in the presence of fast FH interference and missing data observations will be introduced. This novel scheme consists of a sparse Bayesian learning based frequency-hopping spectrum reconstruction stage and a sparse cubic phase function based weak linear frequency modulated signal detection stage. To demonstrate the superior performance of both proposed approaches, simulation and real-data experiment results will be provided.

讲座五:姚经教授讲座
讲座题目:A Steins type Lemma for the Multivariate Generalized Hyperbolic Distribution
讲座摘要: Markowitz' mean-variance optimization framework is known to be consistent with expected utility maximization under the assumption that returns are multivariate elliptically distributed or when a quadratic utility function is employed. Both assumptions are questionable. By contrast, the multivariate generalized hyperbolic distribution is known to provide an excellent fit to returns. By extending Stein's (1973) seminal lemma to this context we are able to completely describe the optimal portfolio of an expected utility maximizer. In particular, he invests in three funds instead of two (as in mean-variance optimization).
