**Venue:** Ramanujan Hall

**Speaker:** Krishna B. Athreya, Iowa State University

**Title:** Statistical estimation of integrals w.r.t. infinite measures

**Abstract:** Given an *L ^{1}* function

*f*on an infinite measure space the problem of generating an infinite sequence of random variables and statistics of these r.v. to consistently estimate the integral of

*f*and obtaining an approximate confidence interval will be addressed in this talk. This is a follow up of the Mathematics Colloquium given by the speaker on February 5, 2014. The speaker will give a detailed proof of the results.
