Ibragimov in Paris

On Monday, Ildar Ibragimov (St.Petersburg Department of Steklov Mathematical Institute, Russia) will give a seminar at CREST on “The Darmois – Skitovich and Ghurye – Olkin theorems revisited“. This sounds more like probability than statistics, as those theorems state that, if two linear combinations of iid rv’s are independent, then those rv’s are normal. See those remarks by Prof. Abram Kagan for historical details. Nonetheless, I find it quite an event to have a local seminar given by one of the fathers of asymptotic Bayesian theory. Here is the abstract to the talk. (The talk will be at ENSAE, Salle S8, at 3pm on Monday, March 18.)
