MATH Seminar: “Conditional independence and the semigraphoid properties”, Igor Sikora, 1:30PM December 19 (EN)

You are cordially invited to the Topology Seminar organized by the Department of Mathematics.

Speaker: Igor Sikora (Bilkent University)

“Conditional independence and the semigraphoid properties”

Abstract: Conditional independence is a central concept in probability. Generalizing conditional independence to arbitrary Markov categories is a natural part of developing synthetic probability theory. In this talk, we will show that it is still meaningful to introduce and work with conditional independence without conditionals. Reference: Section 12 from “A synthetic approach to Markov kernels, conditional independence and theorems on sufficient statistics” by Tobias Fritz.
