Algebraic Statistics: Nonlinear Algebra in Action
Fundamental methodology in statistics relies on theoretical and numerical linear algebra. In recent years, nonlinear algebra applied to statistics has fueled the field of algebraic statistics, offering novel interpretations to classical statistical problems. In this talk, we will give an overview of the strong connection between nonlinear algebra and algebraic statistics. In particular, a recent application of algebraic statistics to time series analysis expands the class of statistical models we can study with nonlinear algebraic tools.
