Title: | CANCELLED - TO BE RESCHEDULED: Matrix Completion for the Independence Model |

Seminar: | Applied Algebra and Network Theory Seminar |

Speaker: | Zvi Rosen, University of California, Berkeley |

Abstract: |

Suppose you are given some entries of a matrix of probabilities for a pair of discrete random variables. When is it possible that these entries come from the independence model? In other words, when can we complete a partial matrix to a rank-1 nonnegative matrix whose entries add up to one? We will approach this problem using combinatorics and algebraic geometry. This talk is based on joint work with Kaie Kubjas (Aalto). |
