Probability & Statistics Group Heidelberg-Mannheim

The Probability & Statistics Group Heidelberg-Mannheim is a joint effort of the institutes of mathematics at the Universities of Heidelberg and Mannheim to join their efforts in research and teaching in the field of mathematical statistics, probability theory and applications. 

The focus in research and education lies on

  • probability theory, in particular the study of stochastic processes,
  • applied probability including computational aspects,
  • mathematical statistics,
  • uncertainty quantification,
  • computational stochastics, in particular for stochastic processes,
  • econometrics

The research groups runs a joint research training group (RTG) funded by the German Science Foundation (DFG). Between October 2013 and October 2022 PhD-students are educated in the field "Statistical Modeling of Complex Systems and Processes". The research training is devoted to fundamental research in the area of advanced nonparametric statistical modeling of complex stochastic systems and processes and offers young doctoral researchers an advanced mathematical basis and international contacts for their research at the frontier of modern theoretical statistics.

The Universities of Heidelberg and Mannheim provide a highly stimulating scientific environment for university education and research in the fields of mathematical statistics, probability theory and applications.
