Title:Long-term behavior of Markov processes and applications to actuarial sciences
Seminar:Job Candidate Talk
Speaker:Achim Wuebker
Abstract:
We investigate the long-term behavior of Markov processes. General spectral gap conditions are derived for time discrete Markov chains in terms of isoperimetric constants. Moreover, we analyze the Brownian Motion with Jump Boundary process as well as the Fiber Lay-down process by analytic and probabilistic techniques. Finally, we introduce a Fleming-Viot interaction particle process and discuss a related model with applications to survival analysis.
