Eigenvectors of tensors are a natural generalization, with many emerging applications. This lecture offers a first introduction, with numerous pictures.\r\n\u003cbr /\u003e\r\n\u003cbr /\u003e\r\nNovember 29th, 2017\r\nLecture 2: “Gaussian Mixtures and their Tensors in Data Science\"\r\nMixtures of Gaussians are ubiquitous in data science. We discuss the geometry of these statistical models, with focus on tensors of moments. The rank of symmetric tensors arises when all covariance matrices are zero. We present work with Amendola and Ranestad that characterizes Gaussian mixtures that are identifiable from their moments.\r\n\u003cbr /\u003e\r\n\u003cbr /\u003e\r\nTime: 4:15 Refreshments\r\nLecture: 4:30-5:30pm\r\nLocation: SC 199\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"contact\"\u003eMath/Stat Department, msdpt@swarthmore.edu, 328-8246\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"location\"\u003e\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"image\"\u003e\u003cimg src=\"https://calendar.swarthmore.edu/calendar/displaymedia.aspx?whatToDo=picture&id=4762\" border=\"0\" alt=\"Bernd Sturmfels\" /\u003e\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"thumbnail\"\u003e\u003cimg src=\"https://calendar.swarthmore.edu/calendar/displaymedia.aspx?whatToDo=picture&thumbnail=thumbnail&thumbnailwidth=100&id=4762&square=N\" border=\"0\" alt=\"Bernd Sturmfels\" /\u003e\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"category\"\u003eAcademic Departments & Programs, Home Page Highlight, Public Events\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"extrainfo\"\u003e\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"sponsor\"\u003e\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"opento\"\u003eThe Public\u003c/div\u003e\u003cdiv class=\"startdate\"\u003e11/28/2017\u003c/div\u003e\u003c/div\u003e")
