Title:Modeling tennis via stochastic Markov chains
Seminar:CCMA Luncheon Seminar
Speaker:Paul Newton, usc.edu
Abstract:
We will describe a stochastic Markov chain model for calculating the probability density function associated with head-to-head matches and full tournament simulations on the ATP tour. This leads to a stochastic ranking system for tennis. Joint work with K. Aslam and J.B. Keller.
