The aim of this workshop is to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Carl-Gustav Esseen who was born in September 1918. He received world fame with his PhD-thesis in 1944 on the remainder term estimate in the central limit theorem. Esseen held the chair of applied mathematics, later mathematical statistics, at the Technical University (KTH) in Stockholm between 1949 and 1967, after which he moved to the newly created chair at Uppsala University, where he stayed until his retirement at the end of 1984. He died in November 2001 at the age of 83.
