Názov: Statistical motivation for association schemes
Association schemes originally arose in statistics, but nowadays they are extensively used in algebra and combinatorics. In the talk, we will not deal with algebraical properties of association schemes; instead, we focus on their statistical motivation. Therefore, the basic theory of: estimation in linear regression, optimal designs, and in particular, block designs will be examined; ultimately arriving at the connection between association schemes and partially balanced incomplete block designs. We will try to formulate the statistical concepts and results so that they are understandable for non-statisticians.
Those of you who are not able to attend in person or who are still uncertain about the safety of attending in person are welcome to attend via MS Teams. In either case, we hope to see as many of you as possible (either in person or virtually) at our Friday gatherings.
