Title: Topological Statistical Inference for Location Parameters via Frechet Functions
Author(s): Ruite Guo*
Companies: Florida State University
Keywords: topological ; location ; nonparametric ; Morse function ; large sample theory

Given a random object on a stratified space, one defines the Frechet mean, the Frechet antimean and additional population parameters associated with its Frechet function, in case this function is a Morse function as well. In this talk we give large sample and nonparametric bootstrap estimation methods for these parameters using the topological statistical inference.

Authors who are presenting talks have a * after their name.
