MATH Seminar: “Further candidate axioms for Markov categories”, Igor Sikora, 1:30PM December 12 (EN)

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

Speaker: Igor Sikora (Bilkent University)

“Further candidate axioms for Markov categories”

Abstract: The category of measurable spaces and Markov kernels is the first example of a Markov category; such a category has many additional properties which sometimes play an important role. We describe some of these properties axiomatically to make a Markov category into a category that “looks more like” a category of Markov kernels. Reference: Section 11 from “A synthetic approach to Markov kernels, conditional independence and theorems on sufficient statistics” by Tobias Fritz.
