Convergence rates of posterior distributions
 Ann. Statist
, 2000
"... We consider the asymptotic behavior of posterior distributions and Bayes estimators for infinitedimensional statistical models. We give general results on the rate of convergence of the posterior measure. These are applied to several examples, including priors on finite sieves, logspline models, D ..."

On the Componentwise Convergence Rate
"... In this paper we investigate the convergence rate of a sequence of vectors provided that the convergence rates of the components are known. The result of this investigation is then used to study the mstep convergence rate of sequences. Key Words. convergence rate  Qfactor  multistep convergence ..."

Convergence rates of Markov chains
, 1995
"... this paper, we attempt to describe various mathematical techniques which have been used to bound such rates of convergence. In particular, we describe eigenvalue analysis, random walks on groups, coupling, and minorization conditions. Connections are made to modern areas of research wherever possibl ..."

Convergence Rate for Consensus with Delays
, 2007
"... We study the problem of reaching a consensus in the values of a distributed system of agents with timevarying connectivity in the presence of delays. We consider a widely studied consensus algorithm, in which at each time step, every agent forms a weighted average of its own value with values recei ..."

received from the neighboring agents. We study an asynchronous operation of this algorithm using delayed agent values. Our focus is on establishing convergence rate results for this algorithm. In particular, we first show convergence to consensus under a bounded delay condition and some connectivity
CONVERGENCE RATES OF ORTHOGONAL SERIES
"... Abstract. General conditions for convergence rates of nonparametric orthogonal series estimators of the regression function f(x) = E(Y X = x) are considered. The estimators are obtained by the least squares method on the basis of a random observation sample (Yi,Xi), i = 1,..., n, where Xi ∈ A ⊂ R ..."

Convergence Rate of Incremental Subgradient Algorithms
 Stochastic Optimization: Algorithms and Applications
, 2000
"... We consider a class of subgradient methods for minimizing a convex function that consists of the sum of a large number of component functions. This type of minimization arises in a dual context from Lagrangian relaxation of the coupling constraints of large scale separable problems. The idea is to p ..."

On the convergence rate of the unscented transformation
, 2011
"... Nonlinear statespace models driven by differential equations have been widely used in science. Their statistical inference generally requires computing the mean and covariance matrix of some nonlinear function of the state variables, which can be done in several ways. For example, such computations ..."

In this paper, we derive some theoretical properties of the unscented transformation and contrast it with the method of linear approximation. Particularly, we derive the convergence rate of the unscented
