Together with our amazing collaborator Marco Oesting, we have put a new paper with the title “Extremes in high dimensions: methods and scalable algorithms” on arXiv. Thanks for the great work, Marco! 🍻
Lag selection and stability in AR processes
With Somnath and our collaborator Rainer von Sachs, we have put a new paper with the title “Lag selection and estimation of stable parameters for multiple autoregressive processes through convex programming” on arXiv. Well done, Somnath! 🥇

Contributions to the GPSD 2023
We have four short lectures at the 16th German Probability and Statistics Days: The DeepCAR method: forecasting time-series data that have change points (presenter: Ayla), Lag selection and estimation of stable parameters for multiple autoregressive processes through convex programming (Somnath), Reducing computational and statistical complexity in machine learning through cardinality sparsity (Ali), and Extremes in high dimensions: statistical theories and scalable algorithms (M. Oesting, Stuttgart). Johannes co-organizes the sessions on Computational and high-dimensional statistics (with D. Rudolf, Passau). Looking forward to the conference!
Lasso paper published
The published version of our paper “Balancing Statistical and Computational Precision: A General Theory and Applications to Sparse Regression” can now be found here.
