A short history of algebraic statistics

Abstract: In algebraic statistics, computational techniques from algebraic geometry become tools to address statistical problems. This, in turn, may prompt research in algebraic geometry. The basic ideas at the core of algebraic statistics will be presented. In particular we shall consider application to contingency tables and to design of experiments.

Keywords: Algebraic Statistics · Design of experiments · Contingency tables.
