Probabilistic method for toric ideals

Sonja Petrovic

Illinois Institute of Technology, USA   -

In this talk we will discuss a probabilistic algorithm that can be used to obtain a generating set of a toric ideal. Apart from being of interest in computational algebra, the problem has applications in statistics, where toric ideal generators form Markov bases for statistical models.

Joint work with Jesús A. De Loera (University of California, Davis) and Despina Stasi (Illinois Institute of Technology).
