Title: Specification of trend and seasonal components for time series data. Abstract:

There has been much attention in the literature devoted to the modelling and decomposition of time series observations, recorded at roughly equal intervals of time, into independent trend and seasonal component time series. This presentation will consider several recent developments in this area, involving both the model-based SARIMA specification and the state-space structural representation, and the results will be illustrated by topical examples.

Title: Connectivity of addable graph classes

Abstract:

We also consider 2-addable graph classes B where for each graph G in B and for any two distinct components of G, the graphs that can be obtained by adding at most 2 edges between the components are in B. We show that a random element of a 2-addable graph class on n vertices is connected with probability tending to 1 as n tends to infinity.

This is joined work with Paul Ballister and Bela Bollobas.

This page lists this term's Pure Mathematics Seminars. All are welcome. All seminars will take place in the McCrea Building, Room 219, at 4.00pm, unless stated otherwise. Tea is served before the seminar at 3.30 in Room 237 of the McCrea Building.

An interactive local street map. (In the right corner is Egham station, in the left corner is Royal Holloway. You can zoom the map, or go the left/right etc..., and print.) Note that the official college recommendation is to go via Station Road to the roundabout and walk up Egham Hill (A30). Even though this appears to be a detour it may be the fastest way. If you try, on your risk, the direct route make sure you reach Ripley avenue and enter the College at the end of Lynwood avenue.
