Title:Small Value Probabilities and Applications
Seminar:Seminar on Probability and its Application
Speaker:Wenbo Li, University of Delaware
Abstract:
Small value probabilities or small deviations study the decay probability that positive random variables behave near zero. In particular, small ball probabilities provide the asymptotic behavior of the probability measure inside a ball as the radius of the ball tends to zero. We will provide an overview and emphasis connections with several topics, including covering numbers, weaker Gaussian correlation inequality, random matrices, branching processes, first exit time estimates, and Laplace asymptotic of partition functions.
