Faculty Profile

Dr. Arif Zaman

Visiting Professor

Department Of Comp. Scienc

Arif Zaman was a member of the Statistics Department at Purdue University and later at Florida State University for 12 years before he joined LUMS in 1994. He has also published papers on generalizations of Markov chains, and on using computers to solve various theoretical problems in mathematics and statistics. His publications have been in various journals including: The Annals of Probability, Mathematics of Computation, Journal of Applied Probability, and Journal of Statistical Computation.
