Extremes in Action

Symposium for Georg Lindgren

Thursday and Friday June 8-9, 2006


Professor Georg Lindgren is retiring on June 30 after having been a driving force behind the strong development of the subject Mathematical statistics at Lund University during the recent decades. With this symposium we want to reflect some of the scientific areas he has worked in.
