Research and contract For more details, click here


Research about infinite variance . An important part of this work deals with the dependence measures (correlation coefficient doesn’t exist in the case of infinite variance). We study the case of time series (AR identification) with infinite variance’s residuals.
oct 2001

feb 2002
Contract with STNA in collaboration with IXI society. We develop a software, which calculate the confidence probability after acceptation. A great part of this theory was studied during the first contract.
sept 2000

jan 2001
Contract STNA-IXI . The goal of this contract was to validate a report on equipment’s reliability. In order to do this work, we study the truncated sequential tests.

Projects and internships

janv 1999

juin 1999
Master’s Project, under the supervision of B. Garel, ENSEEIHT (Toulouse): Prediction of the height of the groundwater at Beauce region : theoretical approach and applications.
I used ARCH-GARCH model (which the variance depends on time). The medium term predictions, during two years, are being updated to meet the goal of users.
jul 1998

sept 1998
Internship, under the supervision of L. Bonnal and P. Favard, GREMAQ (Toulouse): Econometrics of time series.
The goal of this internship is to predict the evolution of the groundwater at Beauce region. The used tools, SARIMA model with or without explanatory variables, give good short term predictions.
jan 1998

jun 1998
Internship, under the supervision of P. Besse, LSP (Toulouse): Principal component analysis of noise curves. In order to find the broken step in assembly line of computer chips at MOTOROLA, we have combined two mathematics techniques: B-spline and PCA.
