How can we work together to promote better cultural understanding worldwide?

Qais Akbar Omar (GRS’16), a graduate student in the Creative Writing Program, has published a much-praised memoir, A Fort of Nine Towers: An Afghan Family Story. He recalls how the violence and tumult of civil war jolted his family, who, despite losing relatives, their home, and possessions, continued to nurture his wish to attend a university.

Title: Empirical Process CLT for Markov Chains and Dynamical Systems. Abstract: In our talk we present some recent developments concerning the empirical process central limit theorem for dependent data that do not satisfy any of the classical mixing conditions. Our results are applicable, e.g. to Markov chains and certain dynamical systems. As a special example, we can prove the empirical process CLT for ergodic torus automorphisms.
