This paper studies the following problem: given samples from a high dimensional discrete distribution, we want to estimate the leading (δ, ρ)-modes of the underlying distributions. A point is defined to be a (δ, ρ)-mode if it is a local optimum of the density within a δ-neighborhood under metric ρ. As we increase the "scale" parameter δ, the neighborhood(More)
We consider a partially linear framework for modelling massive heterogeneous data. The major goal is to extract common features across all sub-populations while exploring heterogeneity of each sub-population. In particular, we propose an aggregation type estimator for the commonality parameter that possesses the (non-asymptotic) minimax optimal bound and(More)
Internetware denotes a kind of complex distributed software system, which executes in an open, uncertain and dynamic environment, and adapts itself to changes in the environment. An important problem related to the development of Internetware applications is how to define their requirements. Traditional requirements modeling methods work well with software(More)
The internetware system is a complex and distributed self-adaptive system, which challenges the method for making adaptation plans. Rule based approaches are very efficient to make plans in adaptive systems. To enable effective rule-based adaptation, we need to write a set of well behaved self-adaptive rules which could always lead to desirable states. This(More)
We propose a new stock selection strategy that exploits rebalancing returns and improves portfolio performance. To effectively harvest rebalancing gains, we apply ideas from elliptical-copula graphical modelling and stability inference to select stocks that are as independent as possible. The proposed elliptical-copula graphical model has a latent Gaussian(More)
Goal-oriented adaptation provides a powerful mechanism to develop self-adaptive systems, enabling systems to keep satisfying user goals in a dynamically changing environment. The goal-oriented approach normally reduces the adaptation planning as a global optimization process and leaves the system the task of determining the actions required to achieve the(More)
