### Abstract

This paper discusses the intimate relationships between the supervised learning frameworks mentioned in the title. In particular, it shows how all those frameworks can be viewed as particular instances of a single overarching formalism. In doing this many commonly misunderstood aspects of those frameworks are explored. In addition the strengths and weaknesses of those frameworks are compared, and some novel frameworks are suggested (resulting, for example, in a "correction" to the familiar bias-plus-variance formula).
