Special Session on Advances in Algebraic Statistics

AMS 2010 Spring Southeastern Sectional Meeting Lexington, KY, March 27th-28th, 2010.

Algebraic Statistics is the field focused on the applications of algebraic geometry and its computational tools in the study of statistical models. Areas of interest include categorial data analysis, experimental design, graphical models, maximum likelihood estimation, and Bayesian methods. Also recent work shows that we can apply theory in algebraic statistics to developing algorithms for problems in biology and also problems in computational biology enhance research in algebraic statistics. This session is meant to provide another meeting point for students and leaders in the field, continuing the tradition of focused meetings we have had in recent years.
