Stats4Grads: An Introduction to Info-Gap

Presented by Kirsty Hinchliff, Durham University

28 April 2010 14:15 in CM221

Info-gap theory is a decision theory that aims to optimise robustness to failure. An info-gap analysis allows one to be more uncertain than in classical decision theory and yet perform to at least a minimum specified level.

An illustrative example, concerning unknown infectious diseases in livestock passing through customs, will be used to demonstrate the info-gap approach.
