The World of Bernoulli Schemes

On Monday (10/09/2018), we have another interesting talk in our Probability and Statistics seminar series at TU Delft.
All of you are very welcome.

Mike KeaneĀ (TU Delft)When: Monday, September 10th, 16:00
Where: TU Delft, Faculty EWI, Mekelweg 4, Lecture hall D@ta.

The World of Bernoulli Schemes

The study of random processes is a central element of
probability and statistics. In this lecture I wish to concentrate on the
understanding which has been developed of Bernoulli schemes, named after
the seminal work of Jacob and Johan Bernoulli in the 17th century in
Basel and Groningen, and in particular to explain simple methods which
algorithmically convert sequences of random “coin” tosses of a coin to
such random sequences of another, different “coin”, both in the
classical and quantum domains. There is at present a hope that the new
“coins”, sometimes called “quantum coins”, will provide solutions to yet
intractable questions using classical Bernoulli techniques.
