Symmetric measures via moments
Algebraic tools in statistics have recently been receiving special attention and a number of interactions between algebraic geometry and computational statistics have been rapidly developing. This paper presents another such connection, namely, one between probabilistic models invariant under a finite group of (non-singular) linear transformations and polynomials invariant under the same group. Two specific aspects of the connection are discussed: generalization of the (uniqueness part of the multivariate) problem of moments and log-linear, or toric, modeling by expansion of invariant terms. A distribution of minuscule subimages extracted from a large database of natural images is analyzed to illustrate the above concepts.
