Divergence measures based on the Shannon entropy
 IEEE Transactions on Information theory
, 1991
"... AbstractA new class of informationtheoretic divergence measures based on the Shannon entropy is introduced. Unlike the wellknown Kullback divergences, the new measures do not require the condition of absolute continuity to be satisfied by the probability distributions involved. More importantly, ..."

Selfdetermination theory and the facilitation of intrinsic motivation, social development, and wellbeing
 American Psychologist
, 2000
"... Human beings can be proactive and engaged or, alternatively, passive and alienated, largely as a function of the social conditions in which they develop and function. Accordingly, research guided by selfdetermination theo~ has focused on the socialcontextual conditions that facilitate versus fores ..."

Construction of abstract state graphs with PVS
, 1997
"... We describe in this paper a method based on abstract interpretation which, from a theoretical point of view, is similar to the splitting methods proposed in [DGG93, Dam96] but the weaker abstract transition relation we use, allows us to construct automatically abstract state graphs paying a reasonab ..."

Localitysensitive hashing scheme based on pstable distributions
 In SCG ’04: Proceedings of the twentieth annual symposium on Computational geometry
, 2004
"... inÇÐÓ�Ò We present a novel LocalitySensitive Hashing scheme for the Approximate Nearest Neighbor Problem underÐÔnorm, based onÔstable distributions. Our scheme improves the running time of the earlier algorithm for the case of theÐnorm. It also yields the first known provably efficient approximate ..."

NN algorithm for the caseÔ�. We also show that the algorithm finds the exact near neigbhor time for data satisfying certain “bounded growth ” condition. Unlike earlier schemes, our LSH scheme works directly on points in the Euclidean space without embeddings. Consequently, the resulting query time
Consistency of spectral clustering
, 2004
"... Consistency is a key property of statistical algorithms, when the data is drawn from some underlying probability distribution. Surprisingly, despite decades of work, little is known about consistency of most clustering algorithms. In this paper we investigate consistency of a popular family of spe ..."

of spectral clustering algorithms, which cluster the data with the help of eigenvectors of graph Laplacian matrices. We show that one of the two of major classes of spectral clustering (normalized clustering) converges under some very general conditions, while the other (unnormalized), is only consistent
Games with Incomplete Information Played by 'Bayesian' Players, IIII
 MANAGEMENT SCIENCE
, 1967
"... The paper develops a new theory for the analysis of games with incomplete information where the players are uncertain about some important parameters of the game situation, such as the payoff functions, the strategies available to various players, the information other players have about the game, e ..."

, etc However, each player has a subjective probability distribution over the alternative possibibties In most of the paper it is assumed that these probability distributions entertained by the different players are mutually "consistent", in the sense that they can be regarded as conditional
The fundamental properties of natural numbers
 Journal of Formalized Mathematics
, 1989
"... Summary. Some fundamental properties of addition, multiplication, order relations, exact division, the remainder, divisibility, the least common multiple, the greatest common divisor are presented. A proof of Euclid algorithm is also given. MML Identifier:NAT_1. WWW:http://mizar.org/JFM/Vol1/nat_1.h ..."

The scheme Nat Ind concerns a unary predicateP, and states that: For every natural
Constructing Free Energy Approximations and Generalized Belief Propagation Algorithms
 IEEE Transactions on Information Theory
, 2005
"... Important inference problems in statistical physics, computer vision, errorcorrecting coding theory, and artificial intelligence can all be reformulated as the computation of marginal probabilities on factor graphs. The belief propagation (BP) algorithm is an efficient way to solve these problems t ..."

the Bethe approximation, and corresponding generalized belief propagation (GBP) algorithms. We emphasize the conditions a free energy approximation must satisfy in order to be a “valid ” or “maxentnormal ” approximation. We describe the relationship between four different methods that can be used
Least squares quantization in pcm.
 Bell Telephone Laboratories Paper
, 1982
"... AbstractIt has long been realized that in pulsecode modulation (PCM), with a given ensemble of signals to handle, the quantum values should be spaced more closely in the voltage regions where the signal amplitude is more likely to fall. It has been shown by Panter and Dite that, in the limit as t ..."

conditions are found that the quanta and associated quantization intervals of an optimum finite quantization scheme must satisfy. The optimization criterion used is that the average quantization noise power be a minimum. It is shown that the result obtained here goes over into the Panter and Dite result
Variable Selection via Nonconcave Penalized Likelihood and its Oracle Properties
, 2001
"... Variable selection is fundamental to highdimensional statistical modeling, including nonparametric regression. Many approaches in use are stepwise selection procedures, which can be computationally expensive and ignore stochastic errors in the variable selection process. In this article, penalized ..."

functions are symmetric, nonconcave on (0, ∞), and have singularities at the origin to produce sparse solutions. Furthermore, the penalty functions should be bounded by a constant to reduce bias and satisfy certain conditions to yield continuous solutions. A new algorithm is proposed for optimizing
