Perhaps surprisingly, it turns out that many techniques and questions in algebraic geometry have natural applications in statistics. This is the subject of the relatively new field of Algebraic Statistics. In my talk, I will give an introduction to Algebraic Statistics for geometers trying to give an overview of some main ideas in the area. Then, I will present some recent results (joint with Carlos Amendola) that show how abelian varieties come up naturally when studying the Gaussian distribution on the integers.
