No
meeting (Biosystems Modeling Workshop at the Radisson) 

3122007 
In the Granular Materials
working group, we encountered and interesting methodological challenge
requiring an Stochastic Process to model rare events (in this
case, large volcano eruptions). Also, the data available is very
challenging (with missing data, data that consists only on
bounds, and data which is the sum of an unknown number of eruptions).
Robert Wolpert and Simon Lunagomez have been working on this problem.
Simon will be presenting their recent results. His slides are here.

For
three months, David M. Steinberg (Department of Statistics and
Operations Research, School of Mathematical Sciences, Tel Aviv
University) will be visiting SAMSI. As you know, he is an expert in
designs for computer experiments, and he has agreed to give a
presentation to our group. Here
is the slide he is going to present.

We meet at the usual time.
David M. Steinberg (U. Tel Aviv) will speak again on ``GASP
Models and Bayesian Regression'' . His slides are here.
