Osaka City University Advanced Mathematical Institute Mini-School on
" Introduction to Information Geometry and Its Applications "


Purpose: The lectures of this mini-school are introductions and applications about classical information geometry of which Professor Shun-ichi Amari and Professor Hiroshi Nagaoka established. Quantum information geometry will not be focused in this mini-school. The purpose is to encourage graduated students and young scientists who aim for information geometry from pure mathematics.
