dc.description.abstractA friend of mine, an expert in statistical genomics, told me the following story: At a dinner party, an attractive lady asked him, "What do you do for a living?" He replied, "I model." As my friend is a handsome man, the lady did not question his statement and continued, "What do you model?" "Genes." She then looked at him up and down and said, "Mh, you must be very much in demand." "Yes, very much so, especially after I helped discover a new culprit gene for a common childhood disease." The lady looked puzzled. In this snapshot, I will give you an insight into Statistics, the field that fascinated my friend (and myself) so much. I will concentrate on phenomena that change over time, in other words, dynamical events.en_US
