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).
