4open is pleased to announce a new special issue “Statistical Inference in Copular Models and Markov Processes, Case Studies and Insights”, guest edited by Verónica Andrea González-López.

“Tail conditional probabilities to predict academic performance”, the first article in this special issue, by Verónica Andrea González-López, Marina Capelari Piovesana, and Nicolas Romano, quantifies the ability to predict performance in certain subjects based on the University of Campinas’ entrance exam.

This special issue follows the 16th International Conference of Numerical Analysis and Applied Mathematics (ICNAAM 2018) where, as part of a special collaborative issue, welcomed submissions developed from research presented at this conference.

ICNAAM 2018 brought together a diverse range of researchers in the field of computational and applied mathematics and presented the latest research and findings in this area.
