Geometric Clustering: FixedParameter Tractability and Lower Bounds with Respect to the Dimension
"... We present an algorithm for the 3center problem in (Rd, L1), i. e., for finding the smallest side length for 3 cubes that cover a given npoint set in Rd, that runs in O(n log n) time for any fixed dimension d. This shows that the problem is fixedparameter tractable when parameterized with d. On ..."

Subexponential fixedparameter tractability of cluster editing
, 2011
"... In the Correlation Clustering, also known as Cluster Editing, we are given an undirected nvertex graph G and a positive integer k. The task is to decide if G can be transformed into a cluster graph, i.e., a disjoint union of cliques, by changing at most k adjacencies, i.e. by adding/deleting at mo ..."

/deleting at most k edges. We give a subexponential algorithm that • in time 2O( pk) + nO(1) decides whether G can be transformed into a cluster graph with p cliques by changing at most k adjacencies. We complement our algorithmic findings by the following tight lower bounds on the asymptotic behaviour of our
Graphical models, exponential families, and variational inference
, 2008
"... The formalism of probabilistic graphical models provides a unifying framework for capturing complex dependencies among random variables, and building largescale multivariate statistical models. Graphical models have become a focus of research in many statistical, computational and mathematical fiel ..."

We describe how a wide varietyof algorithms — among them sumproduct, cluster variational methods, expectationpropagation, mean field methods, maxproduct and linear programming relaxation, as well as conic programming relaxations — can
A Tutorial on Visual Servo Control
 IEEE Transactions on Robotics and Automation
, 1996
"... This paper provides a tutorial introduction to visual servo control of robotic manipulators. Since the topic spans many disciplines our goal is limited to providing a basic conceptual framework. We begin by reviewing the prerequisite topics from robotics and computer vision, including a brief review ..."

Estimating the Support of a HighDimensional Distribution
, 1999
"... Suppose you are given some dataset drawn from an underlying probability distribution P and you want to estimate a "simple" subset S of input space such that the probability that a test point drawn from P lies outside of S is bounded by some a priori specified between 0 and 1. We propo ..."

Tractable inference for complex stochastic processes
 In Proc. UAI
, 1998
"... The monitoring and control of any dynamic system depends crucially on the ability to reason about its current status and its future trajectory. In the case of a stochastic system, these tasks typically involve the use of a belief state—a probability distribution over the state of the process at a gi ..."

belief state contracts exponentially as the process evolves. Thus, even with multiple approximations, the error in our process remains bounded indefinitely. We show how the additional structure of a DBN can be used to design our approximation scheme, improving its performance significantly. We
For Most Large Underdetermined Systems of Linear Equations the Minimal ℓ1norm Solution is also the Sparsest Solution
 Comm. Pure Appl. Math
, 2004
"... We consider linear equations y = Φα where y is a given vector in R n, Φ is a given n by m matrix with n < m ≤ An, and we wish to solve for α ∈ R m. We suppose that the columns of Φ are normalized to unit ℓ 2 norm 1 and we place uniform measure on such Φ. We prove the existence of ρ = ρ(A) so that ..."

. In contrast, heuristic attempts to sparsely solve such systems – greedy algorithms and thresholding – perform poorly in this challenging setting. The techniques include the use of random proportional embeddings and almostspherical sections in Banach space theory, and deviation bounds for the eigenvalues
Stochastic Perturbation Theory
, 1988
"... . In this paper classical matrix perturbation theory is approached from a probabilistic point of view. The perturbed quantity is approximated by a firstorder perturbation expansion, in which the perturbation is assumed to be random. This permits the computation of statistics estimating the variatio ..."

The technique is applied to a number of problems in matrix perturbation theory, including least squares
