Finitetime analysis of the multiarmed bandit problem
 Machine Learning
, 2002
"... Abstract. Reinforcement learning policies face the exploration versus exploitation dilemma, i.e. the search for a balance between exploring the environment to find profitable actions while taking the empirically best action as often as possible. A popular measure of a policy’s success in addressing ..."

this dilemma is the regret, that is the loss due to the fact that the globally optimal policy is not followed all the times. One of the simplest examples of the exploration/exploitation dilemma is the multiarmed bandit problem. Lai and Robbins were the first ones to show that the regret for this problem has
Fast and robust fixedpoint algorithms for independent component analysis
 IEEE TRANS. NEURAL NETW
, 1999
"... Independent component analysis (ICA) is a statistical method for transforming an observed multidimensional random vector into components that are statistically as independent from each other as possible. In this paper, we use a combination of two different approaches for linear ICA: Comon’s informat ..."

Calibrating noise to sensitivity in private data analysis
 In Proceedings of the 3rd Theory of Cryptography Conference
, 2006
"... Abstract. We continue a line of research initiated in [10, 11] on privacypreserving statistical databases. Consider a trusted server that holds a database of sensitive information. Given a query function f mapping databases to reals, the socalled true answer is the result of applying f to the datab ..."

argument to f can change its output. The new analysis shows that for several particular applications substantially less noise is needed than was previously understood to be the case. The first step is a very clean characterization of privacy in terms of indistinguishability of transcripts. Additionally, we
Modeling and performance analysis of bittorrentlike peertopeer networks
 In SIGCOMM
, 2004
"... In this paper, we develop simple models to study the performance of BitTorrent, a second generation peertopeer (P2P) application. We first present a simple fluid model and study the scalability, performance and efficiency of such a filesharing mechanism. We then consider the builtin incentive mec ..."

The role of deliberate practice in the acquisition of expert performance
 Psychological Review
, 1993
"... The theoretical framework presented in this article explains expert performance as the end result of individuals ' prolonged efforts to improve performance while negotiating motivational and external constraints. In most domains of expertise, individuals begin in their childhood a regimen of ef ..."

Fading Channels: InformationTheoretic And Communications Aspects
 IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON INFORMATION THEORY
, 1998
"... In this paper we review the most peculiar and interesting informationtheoretic and communications features of fading channels. We first describe the statistical models of fading channels which are frequently used in the analysis and design of communication systems. Next, we focus on the information ..."

The Magma Algebra System I: The User Language
, 1997
"... In the first of two papers on Magma, a new system for computational algebra, we present the Magma language, outline the design principles and theoretical background, and indicate its scope and use. Particular attention is given to the constructors for structures, maps, and sets. ..."

Information Theory and Statistics
, 1968
"... Entropy and relative entropy are proposed as features extracted from symbol sequences. Firstly, a proper Iterated Function System is driven by the sequence, producing a fractaMike representation (CSR) with a low computational cost. Then, two entropic measures are applied to the CSR histogram of th ..."

The Semantics of Predicate Logic as a Programming Language
 JOURNAL OF THE ACM

Sentences in firstorder predicate logic can be usefully interpreted as programs In this paper the operational and fixpoint semantics of predicate logic programs are defined, and the connections with the proof theory and model theory of logic are investigated It is concluded that operational seman ..."

An almost ideal demand system.
 American Economic Review,

Ever since Richard Stone (1954) first estimated a system of demand equations derived explicitly from consumer theory, there has been a continuing search for alternative specifications and functional forms. Many models have been proposed, but perhaps the most important in current use, apart from the ..."
