Dependence Modeling – PLUS
The team Dependence Modeling deals with random quantities and the multidimensional associations and dependencies that occur between these quantities; the range of applications is therefore extremely diverse.The group focuses on basic research concerning the evaluation, estimation, comparison and construction of such dependencies as well as its application to feature selection problems arising whenever multivariate data is available (finance, manufacturing industry, etc.).
