1/f Long-range dependent processes, from models to applications
April 29 -- May 3, 1996
Les Houches, France
Stochastic processes with long-range dependencies are naturally
observed in areas such as physics, hydrology, geophysics or finance,
as well as in road traffic, telecommunication networks or biology.
Those processes, which evidence a 1/f spectral behavior over wide
ranges of frequencies and self-similarity properties, give rise to
challenging problems from the point of view of both analysis and
modeling. The aim of this Spring School is to address such issues from
the many perspectives offered by recent developments in statistics,
signal theory, wavelets and fractal analysis.

The Physics School in Les Houches is affiliated to University Joseph
Fourier and National Polytechnic Institute in Grenoble. This session is
subsidized by the Ministry of Superior Education and Research, CNRS, Atomic
Energy Commission and DRET.
Les Houches is a resort village in the Chamonix Valley of the French
Alps. Established in 1951, the School is located in a group of mountain
chalets surrounded by meadows and woods at 1150 m elevation. It is
ideally located for mountaineering, skiing or touring as well as for
Centre de Physique des Houches, Cote des Chavants, F-74310 Les Houches.
