[2019-01-09] Graph Based Nonparametric Testing for High Dimensional Data


       Title:Graph Based Nonparametric Testing for High Dimensional Data





  This talk will focus on a common applied High-dimensional k-sample comparison problem. We constructed a class of easy-to-implement nonparametric distribution-free tests based on new statistical tools and unexplored connections with spectral graph theory. The test is shown to possess various desirable properties along with a characteristic exploratory flavor that has practical consequences. The numerical examples show that our method works surprisingly well under a broad range of situations.
