Novel Algebraic Approaches to Maximum Likelihood Estimation
The seventh “One World webinar” organized by YoungStatS will take place on November 17th, 2021. Maximum likelihood estimation (MLE) is a tool in data analysis to estimate a probability distribution or density in a statistical model for given data. In recent decades, algebraic and combinatorial tools have proved useful for computing MLEs and understanding the geometry of the MLE problem which in recent years led to new and interesting results in combinatorics and algebraic geometry. Selected young researchers active in the area of algebraic statistics will present their recent contributions on this topic.
When & Where:
- Wednesday, November 17th, 18:00 Central European Time
