ZOOM meeting
Wednesday, 7. April 2021 - 11:30 to 12:30
While probability theory is traditionally based on measure theory and Kolmogorov's axioms as a foundation, the  recently proposed
formalism of Markov categories constitutes a potential alternative approach in which a (modest) number of classical theorems of probability
and statistics have already been reproduced and generalized. In this talk, I will introduce this approach and illustrate its utility by
providing a statement and proof of the classical de Finetti theorem in entirely abstract categorical terms without measure theory. Based on
joint work with Tomáš Gonda, Paolo Perrone and Eigil Rischel.

We open ZOOM  at 11.30  and  close  at 13.00.
