# Wilfrid Kendall's Personal Page

I am a professor in the Statistics department at the University of Warwick. My research interests lie mostly in probability theory, and include: random processes, stochastic geometry, stochastic calculus, computer algebra in statistics and probability, and perfect simulation. I am President of the Bernoulli Society as of 29 August 2013. I have been co-director of APTS (now with my colleague Adam Johansen, previously with my colleague David Firth) since October 2007.

## Teaching and Related Matters, 2014/2015

I shall be teaching the following lecture course this year:

- Term 1: MASDOC P1 ST910 An Invitation to Graduate Probability
- Term 1: OxWasp module Probability and Approximation
- Term 2: ST318 Probability Theory

My office is Room C0.17 in the Mathematics and Statistics Building.

Office hours in Term 1 (2014-2015): Wednesdays 1130-1230, Thursdays 1130-1230 *(not Weeks 1, 2 or 10)*.

## PhD projects

I have produced a list of current possibilities for research projects.

Current research projects

I am currently engaged in EPSRC-funded research projects on:

- Probabilistic coupling and nilpotent diffusions

- Inside-out: Statistical methods for Computed Tomography validation

With my research student Giacomo Zanella, I am working on a project to apply statistical methods to contribute to debates in Anglo-Saxon history:

## Recent publications

Four ways in which this information is accumulated on the web:

- Mendeley profile: www.mendeley.com/profiles/wilfrid-kendall (synchronized with my own Mendeley database, fairly complete and reasonably reliable source for bibliographic data);
- Google Scholar page: scholar.google.co.uk/citations?user=0IJZ3EkAAAAJ (includes citation statistics gleaned from Google searches);

- Preprints on arXiv: arxiv.org/a/kendall_w_1 (I now place my major research outputs on arXiv, on or before the date of submission to a journal).

- ResearchGate.

I no longer maintain it, but here is a list of my older Warwick preprints, with links to abstracts

- linked by topic,
- including (some) illustrative pictures.

Finally, here is a page for *New Perspectives on Stochastic Geometry* (co-edited with Ilya Molchanov).

I have also made available some collections of slides for recent talks.

## Seminars and reading groups at Warwick Statistics

Back in 1988 I founded the Midlands Probability Theory Seminars. The Probability at Warwick initiative P@W now collects together this and a number of other activities related to the probability research community. See also the main Statistics (CRiSM) Seminars.

## Other activity

I am an associate editor for:

- The
*Stochastic Geometry and Statistical Applications*section of*Advances in Applied Probability*(I am proud to state, I was the founding coordinating editor for this section);
