Empirical Likelihood Study Group

Organizer: Chun Li


Empirical likelihood is a nonparametric method of statistical inference. It has potential applications in many areas of statistics. This study group will focus on understanding the idea of empirical likelihood and seeking its connections with and applications in practice. We will initially discuss the book Empirical Likelihood written by Art Owen, and then move on to some related papers.
