Means, Medians and Null Hypothesis Testing
Thursday, October 10, 2013 - 11:30am - 12:20pm
We can view persistence diagrams as stochastic variables themselves. As such we wish to be able to analyze sets of persistence diagrams statistically. To this end I will define and characterize the central tendencies of the mean and the median. Separately, I will also provide a method of null hypothesis testing.
