SUMMARY Concepts of v-fold cross-validation and repeated learning-testing methods have been introduced here. In many problems, these methods are computationally much less expensive than ordinary cross-validation and can be used in its place. A comparative study of these three methods has been carried out in detail.

Some Issues in Cross-Validation
A new type of cross- validation is proposed here for model selection problems when the data is generated by a stationary process, which is an off-shoot of both ordinary cross-validation and v-fold cross- validation.
Cross-validation as the objective function for variable-selection techniques
It is shown that the commonly applied leave-one-out cross-validation has a strong tendency to overfitting, underestimates the true prediction error, and should not be used without further constraints or further validation.

Experimental results, using time series of the NN3 tournament, found that Monte Carlo cross validation is more stable than ten-fold cross validation for selecting the best forecasting model.
Multiple predicting K-fold cross-validation for model selection
ABSTRACT K-fold cross-validation (CV) is widely adopted as a model selection criterion. In K-fold CV, folds are used for model construction and the hold-out fold is allocated to model validation.
On the Use of K-Fold Cross-Validation to Choose Cutoff Values and Assess the Performance of Predictive Models in Stepwise Regression
This paper addresses a methodological technique of leave-many-out cross-validation for choosing cutoff values in stepwise regression methods for simplifying the final regression model. A practical
Estimation of prediction error by using K-fold cross-validation
This paper investigates two families that connect the training error and K-fold cross-validation, which has a downward bias and has an upward bias.

The theoretical basics of various cross-validation techniques are described with the purpose of reliably estimating the generalization error and optimizing the model structure for reliably estimating a single location parameter.
A survey of cross-validation procedures for model selection
This survey intends to relate the model selection performances of cross-validation procedures to the most recent advances of model selection theory, with a particular emphasis on distinguishing empirical statements from rigorous theoretical results.
An empirical comparison of $$V$$V-fold penalisation and cross-validation for model selection in distribution-free regression
Cases in which VFCV and $$V$$V-fold penalisation provide poor estimates of the risk, respectively, are highlighted, and a modified penalisation technique is introduced to reduce the estimation error.
Targeted Cross-Validation
This work proposes a targeted cross-validation (TCV) to select models or procedures based on a general weighted L2 loss and shows that the TCV is consistent in selecting the best performing candidate under the weighted L1 loss.


An alternative method of cross-validation for the smoothing of density estimates
Cross-validation with Kullback-Leibler loss function has been applied to the choice of a smoothing parameter in the kernel method of density estimation. A framework for this problem is constructed

A recently devised method of prediction based on sample reuse techniques that is most useful in low structure data paradigms that involve minimal assumptions is presented.
