Algebraic Statistics 2022

We will be hosting an Algebraic Statistics conference from May 16 – 20, 2022.

Algebraic statistics is an interdisciplinary field that combines statistics, algebraic geometry, commutative algebra, polyhedral geometry, and graph theory.

The statistical models studied come from many fields, including evolutionary biology and machine learning (both will have a good representation at this conference).

All are welcome to attend, but please register to help with planning.

Talk titles and abstracts should be posted within the next week.

All talks will be held in Bilger 150.

Placement Exam

The Math Department requires an exam for placement in many courses. Based on your exam results, the department will enter a BMAT score into your Banner student record. Your BMAT score
determines the classes in which you are allowed to register and stays valid for one year. The exam is given in two parts, each with a 30 minute time limit, and your combined results on each part
determine your BMAT score. Both parts of the exam must be taken in the same session, and you must pass Part 1 in order to take Part 2. You may only take the exam one time per exam window – see the Repeat Policy below for additional details. Taking our Practice Exams to prepare is strongly encouraged. The exam may be taken
on campus or remotely either through proctorU or an NCTA
approved testing center
