ISM Symposium

Statistics and Discrete Geometry:
Application to Crystallography and Chemistry

The Institute of Statistical Mathematics
4-6-7 Minami-Azabu, Minato-ku, Tokyo
March 25-26, 2002

Discrete geometry is successfully applied to problems in Crystallography
and Chemistry. Analyses on statistical data on geometrical structure
suggest various problems in statistics. The aim of this symposium is to make
an interdisciplinary interaction on Chemistry, Crystallography,
Discrete Geometry and Statistics for the new developments of these fields.
