I'm currently working towards a major in both chemistry and mathematical statistics as a part of my science degree, and I got to wondering:
How will these two go hand in hand and help each other?
Now, I know there's the obvious applications of statistical inference to any experimentation I do, but I'm talking about less obvious relationships. Could my knowledge of solving SDEs ever help me with my experiments? What about continuous Markov processes? Will I ever even think about a discrete random variable again if I go on to get a PhD in chemistry? Also not looking for the standard "well we use statistical physics to model electrons" example, either (welp, unless you can offer some nice specifics). Surely there's other ways that these skills I've found can interact with each other?
