Chair K. Of these, is normally taken during the first year of study. Doctoral students should complete one semester prior to taking the general examination. ORF Extramural Summer Project Summer research project designed in conjunction with the student's advisor and an industrial, NGO, or government sponsor, that will provide practical experience relevant to the student's course of study. Start date no earlier than June 1. A research report and sponsor's evaluation are required. ORF Linear and Nonlinear Optimization Theoretical concepts underlying linear programming, with computer implementations of some of the different methods.
The topics covered include duality theory, the simplex method, interior point methods, related numerical issues, and modeling paradigms. ORF Convex and Conic Optimization An introduction to the central concepts needed for studying the theory, algorithms, and applications of nonlinear optimization problems. Topics covered include first- and second-order optimality conditions; unconstrained methods, including steepest descent, conjugate gradient, and quasi-Newtonian methods; constrained active-set methods; and duality theory and Lagrangian methods.
Prerequisite: linear optimization. It introduces some of the most important and commonly-used principles of statistical inference and covers the statistical theory and methods for point estimation, confidence intervals, and hypothesis testing, and the applications of the fundamental theory to linear models and categorical data.
The methodological power of statistics will be emphasized. ORF Probability Theory Graduate introduction to probability theory beginning with a review of measure and integration.

Topics include random variables, expectation, characteristic functions, law of large numbers, central limit theorem, conditioning, martin- gales, Markov chains, and Poisson processes. Topics include local martingales, the Ito integral and calculus, stochastic differential equations, the Feynman-Kac formula, representation theorems, Girsanov theory, and applications in finance.
Aimed at PhD students and advanced masters students who have studied stochastic calculus, the course focuses on uses of partial differential equations: their appearance in pricing financial derivatives, their connection with Markov processes, their occurrence as Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman equations in stochastic control problems, and analytical, asymptotic, and numerical techniques for their solution. Controlled diffusion processes and stochastic dynamic programming. Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman equation, viscosity solutions. Merton problem, singular optimal control, option pricing via utility maximization.
Also covered are both offline and online learning problems. Considerable emphasis is placed on modeling and computation. ORF Markov Processes Markov processes with general state spaces; transition semigroups, generators, resolvants; hitting times, jumps, and Levy systems; additive functionals and random time changes; killing and creation of Markovian motions. ORF Stochastic Analysis Seminar Recent developments in the theory and applications of the analysis of random processes and random fields.
Applications include financial engineering, transport by stochastic flows, and statistical imaging. ORF High Dimensional Statistics Course is on statistical theory and methods for high-dimensional statistical learning and inferences arising from processing massive data from various scientific disciplines.
Compatibility: May eat small fish; good with each other, koi, and goldfish. Life span: years. Ease of keeping: Moderate, needs large pond. Ease of breeding: Hard. Orfes only grow large and thus breed in large ponds. They need well-oxygenated water of medium hardness. In the wild, they may migrate into brackish waters as well as freshwater. They are similar to koi in their needs. Orfe are said to be more sensitive to medications so avoid using alot of medication if you need to use any.
The ORFE education emphasizes the importance of mathematical modelling. Because almost all complex problems include uncertainty, ORFE students learn how to develop mathematical models with uncertainty, how to incorporate real-world data into these models, and how to make optimal decisions that improve performance or manage resources effectively. Such a principled and quantitative approach to solving complex problems is of central importance in many different areas of our society. By combining the core ORFE curriculum with courses in engineering, economics, computer science, public policy, the liberal arts, mathematics, and the sciences, each student may design a unique program adapted to his or her particular interests.
The ORFE education opens careers in a broad range of application areas. Many of our students move into careers in management consulting, finance, and information technology, drawing on a strong technical education. Students with an interest in obtaining a deeper education have progressed to Ph. All students start from a common academic core consisting of statistics, probability and stochastic processes, and optimization.
Advanced courses in the department focus on computational methods and on exposing students to applications in areas such as finance, econometrics, operations research, communication networks, e-commerce, transportation, and machine learning.
