The Institute for Mathematical Stochastics (IMS) was founded in 1918 (at the time as the Institute for Mathematical Statistics and Insurance Mathematics) by Felix Bernstein, encouraged by David Hilbert. Today, the IMS features four research groups focusing on varoius areas of probability theory and mathematical statistics with strong interactions to bio- and life sciences and the Felix-Bernstein Institute for Mathematical Statistics in the Biosciences.
In addition to a basic curriculum in probability, mathematical statistics and insurance mathematics for the Bachelor/Master Degree Programms in Mathematics and the newly founded Bachelor Degree Programme Mathematical Data Science, the IMS provides PhD training in "Mathematical Sciences" (within the GAUSS program), amongst others in the Reseach Training Group 2088 and varoius Collaborative Research Centres funded by the DFG.
Talk at the advanced seminar:
Tudor Manole, PhD, Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, USA, will give a lecture at the advanced seminar on 8th of December 2023 from 12.15 p.m. to 1.45 p.m. in the seminar room 5.101 (5th floor) in the IMS, Goldschmidtstraße 5, Göttingen on Inference for Optimal Transport via Quantitative Linearization of the Monge-Ampère Equation.
ICSDS 2023 travel award to Michel Groppe:
We are excited to congratulate Michel Groppe for receiving the 2023 ICSDS student travel award! Michel will present his paper on
“Lower Complexity Adaptation for Empirical Entropic Optimal Transport” in 2023 IMS International Conference on Statistics and Data Science (ICSDS) in Lisbon, Portugal where also a ceremonie will be held on this occasion.
