Efficient Cumulant Estimation

Cumulants are measures related to higher-order correlations. As their estimation through classical k-statistics is computationally expensive and statistically complex, a new method to simplify cumulant estimation for Hawkes processes was recently proposed by Stojan Jovanovic, Stefan Rotter and John Hertz. In my talk I will present the basic idea behind this simplified method as well as its performance in comparison with k-statistics. A simulation program for uni- and multivariate Hawkes processes and a program for cumulant analysis are thus introduced.
