Roughly speaking, algebraic statistics is concerned with those problems that lie at the intersection of algebra, combinatorics, statistics, and their applications. The field is still relatively new (less than ten years old) so the full scope of applications is emerging. This special session is intended to bring together researchers working on problems in this area. We have tried to gather a healthy range of folks from the theoretical to the applied end of things, hence the title. |
