ℓ-norm and its Application to Learning Theory

We investigate connections between an important parameter in the theory of Banach spaces called the ℓ-norm, and two properties of classes of functions which are essential in Learning Theory – the

Weak convergence of marked empirical processes in a Hilbert space and its applications

: In this paper, weak convergences of marked empirical processes in L 2 ( R ,ν ) and their applications to statistical goodness-of-fit tests are pro-vided, where L 2 ( R ,ν ) is the set of equivalence

PR ] 1 7 M ar 2 01 4 A stochastic maximal inequality , σ-countability , and related topics

As an alternative to the well-known methods of “chaining” and “bracketing” that have been developed in the study of random fields, a new stochastic maximal inequality is derived by using Itô’s

Weak Convergence of Stochastic Processes

The purpose of this course was to present results on weak convergence and invariance principle with statistical applications. As various techniques used to obtain different statistical applications,

On the weak convergence of the kernel density estimator in the uniform topology

The pointwise asymptotic properties of the Parzen-Rosenblatt kernel estimator Fn of a probability density function f on Rd have received great attention, and so have its integrated or uniform errors.

Weak convergences of marked empirical processes in a Hilbert space and their applications

In this paper, weak convergences of marked empirical processes in $L^2(\mathbb{R},\nu)$ and their applications to statistical goodness-of-fit tests are provided, where $L^2(\mathbb{R},\nu)$ is the

Gaussian approximation of suprema of empirical processes

An abstract approximation theorem that is applicable to a wide variety of problems, primarily in statistics, is proved and the bound in the main approximation theorem is non-asymptotic and the theorem does not require uniform boundedness of the class of functions.
