Title: Combinatorial Methods in Statistics
Abstract: Statistical applications provide many interesting questions of discrete nature. In this talk we discuss a wide range of combinatorial problems stemming from three specific applications: ranking from pairwise comparisons, size-biased sampling and decoding grid cells in mammalian brain.
Refreshments will be served after the seminar in 1181 Comstock Hall.
