Title:A distribution for avalanche sizes in neural dynamics
Seminar:Probability and Financial Mathematics Seminar
Speaker:Anirban Das, PSU
In 2002 Eurich, Herrmann and Ernst proposed a distribution for the size of avalanches in complete networks of neurons without leaking (Phys. Rev. E, 2002). The talk will present some new additional properties for this and similar distributions, in particular, a formula for the variance and a complete derivation of Wenbo Li's formula for expectations.
