Tomorrow the lecture "One-dimensional point processes" will start.
I will introduce the theory of point processes on the real line in a rather mathematically informal way. The main goal is to provide the students with some tools for modeling neural networks on the basis of point processes and to give them a feeling for what could be done with spike data, once you have collected them.
The first topic will be very basic: the time-representation of renewal processes. We will see how far we can go by describing renewal processes as sum of an i.i.d. sequence.
I will post the lectures here and will try to give some additional material here on the blog.
