Does anyone know of a good book to try learn it out of?</p> http://mathoverflow.net/questions/6088/algebraic-statistics-textbook/6119#6119 Answer by Michael Lugo for Algebraic Statistics textbook Michael Lugo 2009-11-19T15:50:06Z 2009-11-19T15:50:06Z <p>I've heard that <a href="http://bio.math.berkeley.edu/ascb/" rel="nofollow">the book of Sturmfels and Pachter</a> is supposed to be good. But it's a bit slanted towards biological applications, which may or may not be what you're into.</p> http://mathoverflow.net/questions/6088/algebraic-statistics-textbook/6214#6214 Answer by Daniel Erman for Algebraic Statistics textbook Daniel Erman 2009-11-20T03:43:09Z 2009-11-20T03:43:09Z <p>I took a course in Algebraic Statistics from the book of Drton, Sturmfels, and Sullivant called "<a href="http://www.springer.com/birkhauser/applied+probability+and+statistics/book/978-3-7643-8904-8" rel="nofollow">Lectures on Algebraic Statistics</a>". I learned a lot from the book, and I enjoyed the material tremendously. (My background is in algebraic geometry, by the way.)</p>
