「Complex Phenomena from Statistical Point of View
  ~ Seismology, Environmentology and Economy ~」

As we know, statistics, as a branch of applied mathematics, is a study of data, from the design of survey, data analysis, hypothesis testing to decision making, in order to interpret targeted phenomena or problems. Besides the common descriptive statistics, such as mean, median, variance and others, advanced studies of statistics have been developed in recent years to explain more complicated problems. In this symposium, we focus on the investigation of phenomena arise from three specific fields: seismology, environmentology and economy, using various types of statistical models. What we are interested is that how statistical models are used to explain the survival patterns of earthquakes, the analysis of forestry data using directional models, the derivation of a circular distribution via Brownian motion, and the applications of copula models to international equity markets and dynamic stochastic general equilibrium models for Japanese macroeconomic data. Throughout the talk, we hope to give an insight to audiences the role of modern statistics in scientific research.
