Abstract:
We prove a central limit theorem for a class of additive processes that arise naturally in the
theory of finite horizon Markov decision problems. The main theorem generalizes a…


In this talk, we study two different diffusion models on the random graphs. In the first part, we
consider first passage percolation. We analyze the impact of the edge weights on distances
in sparse…


Continuous optimization is a key component of modern data analysis. Recently, the demands
of extremely largescale applications have shifted the focus from high cost, high accuracy
methods to low…


We develop a majorizationbased tool to compare financial networks with a focus on the implications of liability concentration. Specifically, we quantify liability concentration by applying the…

Abstract: Many problems in science and engineering involve the sorting, or ordering, of large amounts of multivariate data. A common sorting technique is to arrange the data into layers by…
