zbMATH — the first resource for mathematics

Examples
Geometry Search for the term Geometry in any field. Queries are case-independent.
Funct* Wildcard queries are specified by * (e.g. functions, functorial, etc.). Otherwise the search is exact.
"Topological group" Phrases (multi-words) should be set in "straight quotation marks".
au: Bourbaki & ti: Algebra Search for author and title. The and-operator & is default and can be omitted.
Chebyshev | Tschebyscheff The or-operator | allows to search for Chebyshev or Tschebyscheff.
"Quasi* map*" py: 1989 The resulting documents have publication year 1989.
so: Eur* J* Mat* Soc* cc: 14 Search for publications in a particular source with a Mathematics Subject Classification code (cc) in 14.
"Partial diff* eq*" ! elliptic The not-operator ! eliminates all results containing the word elliptic.
dt: b & au: Hilbert The document type is set to books; alternatively: j for journal articles, a for book articles.
py: 2000-2015 cc: (94A | 11T) Number ranges are accepted. Terms can be grouped within (parentheses).
la: chinese Find documents in a given language. ISO 639-1 language codes can also be used.

Statistical learning theory. (English) Zbl 0935.62007
Adaptive and Learning Systems for Signal Processing, Communications, and Control. Chichester: Wiley. xxvi, 736 p. £67.95 (1998).

This book presents a comprehensive study of learning processes that explores ways of estimating functional dependency from a given collection of data. It covers important topics of classical statistics. In particular: discriminant analysis, regression analysis and density estimation problems. This book provides a detailed coverage of the theory of learning and generalization that analyses factors responsible for generalization and shows how to control these factors in order to generalize well. It explains some methods that provide generalization when estimating a multidimensional function from a limited collection of data. In addition, it studies uniform laws of large numbers that make generalization possible.

The book is written at a level for use in a graduate course on learning theory in statistics, mathematics, physics, engineering and computer science. It will be helpfull in a special course on empirical processes for Ph. D. students in mathematics and statistics.
