The first call for applications for the new edition of the PhD Program in Mathematics UC|UP (starting September 2019) will be open during January 02, 2019 - February 04, 2019
The prize Eng. António de Almeida for the best doctoral thesis defended at FCUP in the years 2015 to 2017 in the areas of Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science was awarded to Célia Borlido for her thesis "The word problem and some reducibility properties for pseudo- varieties of the form DRH", supervised by Prof. Jorge Almeida within the scope of PIUDM.
The course intends to explore some topics of nonparametric inference, with a focus on rank-based and curve smoothing inference. Specific subjects to be studied may include order statistics, empirical functions and goodness-of-fit tests, inference in extreme value models, kernel density and regression function estimation, smoothing parameter selection and estimation of other functions depending on the density.
