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 ..."

Approximating discrete probability distributions with dependence trees
 IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON INFORMATION THEORY
, 1968
"... A method is presented to approximate optimally an ndimensional discrete probability distribution by a product of secondorder distributions, or the distribution of the firstorder tree dependence. The problem is to find an optimum set of n1 first order dependence relationship among the n variables ..."

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 ..."

Powerlaw distributions in empirical data
 ISSN 00361445. doi: 10.1137/ 070710111. URL http://dx.doi.org/10.1137/070710111
, 2009
"... Powerlaw distributions occur in many situations of scientific interest and have significant consequences for our understanding of natural and manmade phenomena. Unfortunately, the empirical detection and characterization of power laws is made difficult by the large fluctuations that occur in the t ..."

Investor psychology and security market under and overreactions
 Journal of Finance
, 1998
"... We propose a theory of securities market under and overreactions based on two wellknown psychological biases: investor overconfidence about the precision of private information; and biased selfattribution, which causes asymmetric shifts in investors ’ confidence as a function of their investment ..."

Nonparametric estimation of average treatment effects under exogeneity: a review
 REVIEW OF ECONOMICS AND STATISTICS
, 2004
"... Recently there has been a surge in econometric work focusing on estimating average treatment effects under various sets of assumptions. One strand of this literature has developed methods for estimating average treatment effects for a binary treatment under assumptions variously described as exogen ..."

considered estimation and inference for average treatment effects under weaker assumptions than typical of the earlier literature by avoiding distributional and functionalform assumptions. Various methods of semiparametric estimation have been proposed, including estimating the unknown regression functions
The use of the area under the ROC curve in the evaluation of machine learning algorithms
 Pattern Recognition
, 1997
"... AbstractIn this paper we investigate the use of the area under the receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve (AUC) as a performance measure for machine learning algorithms. As a case study we evaluate six machine learning algorithms (C4.5, Multiscale Classifier, Perceptron, Multilayer Percept ..."
