Title: Two Sample Test Problem

Abstract: Given two independent random samples $X_1,...,X_n$ and $Y_1,...,Y_n$, the two sample test problem consists on deciding whether the samples were drawn from the same distribution or not. In this talk I will present some of the most popular statistical methods in the literature to answer this question, as well as I will present a new approach based on optimal transportation.
