Compositional data analysis: where we are and where should we be heading?

We take stock of the present position of compositional data analysis, of what has beenachieved in the last 20 years, and then make suggestions as to what may be sensibleavenues of future research. We take an uncompromisingly applied mathematical view,that the challenge of solving practical problems should motivate our theoreticalresearch; and that any new theory should be thoroughly investigated to see if it mayprovide answers to previously abandoned practical considerations. Indeed a main themeof this lecture will be to demonstrate this applied mathematical approach by a number ofchallenging examples
