Against All Odds - Describing Distributions
'This program examines the difference between mean and median, explains the use of quartiles to describe a distribution, and looks to the use of boxplots and the five-number summary for comparing and describing data. An illustrative example shows how a city government used statistical methods to correct inequity between men’s and women’s salaries.'

05 - Insurance: The Archetypal Risk Management Institution
Insurance provides significant risk management to a broad public, and is an essential tool for promoting human welfare. By pooling large numbers of independent or low-correlated risks, insurance providers can minimize overall risk. The risk management is tailored to individual circumstances and reflects centuries of insurance industry experience with real risks and with moral hazard and selection bias issues. Probability theory and statistical tools help to explain how insurance companies use ri

The Contribution Of Econophysics To The Modeling Of Financial Markets
Prof. Dr. Rosario N. Montegna (Dipartimento di Fisica, Univ. of Palermo): Since more than 15 years, a group of physicists have been investigating economic and financial systems. Among these studies, a special attention has been devoted to financial markets. These studies are using tools and concepts of statistical physics. In this talk I will present an overview of some results obtained by our research group in this field. Specifically, I will discuss the multivariate nature of the dynamics of a
