Dissertation Defense

On Wavelet Analysis and Scale Invariance: Transience, Operator Fractional Lévy Motion, and High-Dimensional Inference


Benjamin Boniece - Tulane University


Abstract: 


This thesis is centered around themes of statistical inference and probability theory for models of scale invariance. Scale invariant processes are random mathematical objects that appear statistically alike at different scales, and since their popularization by Mandelbrot in the 1970's, they have found applications in a wide variety of disciplines, ranging from climatology to telecommunications to finance.  

In this thesis, we conduct wavelet-based inference for scale invariance models in one dimension, n dimensions, and in a high-dimensional asymptotic regime.  We also construct a new stochastic process called operator fractional Lévy motion and study its probabilistic behavior.
