Title:Poisson limit theorems for dependent processes
Seminar:Seminar on Probability and its Application
Speaker:Manfred Denker, PSU
Abstract:
The talk will begin reviewing Sevast'yanov's generalization of the classical Poisson limit law. This theorem initiated the investigation of Poisson limit laws and return time distributions for dynamical systems. The talk reviews some of these results, mentions open problems and will end with a generalization of Sevast'yanov's theorem to occupancy problems, which have applications in dynamics and for U-statistics.
