New book on vine copulas. The book offers a step-by-step introduction to vine copula based dependence modeling, including model selection and estimation methods for vine copulas [mehr]

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers in graphical models and explore the strong algebraic connections present in their analysis, with a focus on conditional independence. [mehr]

Realistic big data analyses require statistical models accounting for dependence. The class of vine copulas ( has been shown to capture flexibly dependence patterns with tail dependence and asymmetry. Vine copulas significantly extend the Gaussian copula. This two day workshop is... [mehr]
