Probability & Statistics

Research in Probability and Statistics at McMaster is highly interdisciplinary, and reaches beyond the department into the Faculties of Science, Medical, Engineering and Business. Research interests include: Theoretical Probability (large deviations, stochastic differential equations, martingales) Applied Probability (stochastic genetics, queueing systems) and Mathematical Statistics (inferential methods, model-validity, outliers, multivariate analysis) and Applied Statistics (environmental hazards, animal abundance, genetics, climatology, pharmaceutics, and mortality).
