Evarist Giné: in memoriam


This conference is held in memory of Evarist Giné (1944-2015), who was an influential, brilliant and prolific contributor to modern probability theory and mathematical statistics, with a focus on problems arising in infinite-dimensional settings. His work has had a profound impact on modern probability theory, mathematical statistics and recently also machine learning.
