Statistical Learning Theory and Stochastic Optimization

Olivier Catoni, Jean Picard, "Statistical Learning Theory and Stochastic Optimization"
English | 2004 | ISBN: 3540225722 | PDF | pages: 273 | 2,3 mb

Statistical learning theory is aimed at analyzing complex data with necessarily approximate models. This book is intended for an audience with a graduate background in probability theory and statistics. It will be useful to any reader wondering why it may be a good idea, to use as is often done in practice a notoriously "wrong'' (i.e. over-simplified) model to predict, estimate or classify. This point of view takes its roots in three fields: information theory, statistical mechanics, and PAC-Bayesian theorems. Results on the large deviations of trajectories of Markov chains with rare transitions are also included. They are meant to provide a better understanding of stochastic optimization algorithms of common use in computing estimators. The author focuses on non-asymptotic bounds of the statistical risk, allowing one to choose adaptively between rich and structured families of models and corresponding estimators. Two mathematical objects pervade the book: entropy and Gibbs measures. The goal is to show how to turn them into versatile and efficient technical tools, that will stimulate further studies and results.

Yoga e Natura è Il nuovo libro sulla crescita e sviluppo personale – Una preparazione adeguata é certamente la chiave del successo.
Successo significa realizzare delle imprese in base ai nostri sforzi e alle nostre capacità. Una preparazione adeguata é sempre la chiave del successo. Le nostre azioni non possono saperne di più dei nostri pensieri. Il nostro pensiero non puo’ saperne di più della nostra conoscenza.Non dobbiamo dimenticare che anche i pensieri positivi sono cibo per la mente, mentre i pensieri di qualsiasi altra natura sono velenosi per il corpo e la mente.
Hai mai analizzato la tua dieta mentale?
Consiste dei pensieri che nutri, nonché dei pensieri che ricevi attraverso il ravvicinato contatto mentale con i tuoi amici.
Essere positivi non significa che si è sempre pervasi da un entusiasmo concentrabile e un sorriso incessante. Essere positivi è affrontare le avversità con la voglia di emergere, la fede che se solo lo si vuole tutto si puo’ affrontare.

Smarandache Rings by W. B. Vasantha Kandasamy

Generally, in any human field, a Smarandache Structure on a set A means a weak structure W on A such that there exists a proper subset B which is embedded with a stronger structure S.
By proper subset one understands a set included in A, different from the empty set, from the unit element if any, and from A.
These types of structures occur in our every day’s life, that’s why we study them in this book.
Thus, as two particular cases:
A Smarandache ring of level I (S-ring I) is a ring R that contains a proper subset that is a field with respect to the operations induced.
A Smarandache ring of level II (S-ring II) is a ring R that contains a proper subset A that verifies:
· A is an additive abelian group;
· A is a semigroup under multiplication;
· For a, b in A, a·b = 0 if and only if a = 0 or b = 0.
