This booklet positive factors examine contributions from The Abel Symposium on Statistical research for top Dimensional facts, held in Nyvågar, Lofoten, Norway, in might 2014.
The concentration of the symposium used to be on statistical and laptop studying methodologies particularly constructed for inference in “big info” events, with specific connection with genomic purposes. The participants, who're one of the such a lot popular researchers at the conception of statistics for prime dimensional inference, current new theories and strategies, in addition to hard purposes and computational ideas. particular subject matters comprise, between others, variable choice and screening, penalised regression, sparsity, thresholding, low dimensional buildings, computational demanding situations, non-convex occasions, studying graphical types, sparse covariance and precision matrices, semi- and non-parametric formulations, a number of trying out, class, issue versions, clustering, and preselection.
Highlighting state-of-the-art examine and casting mild on destiny learn instructions, the contributions will profit graduate scholars and researchers in computational biology, information and the computing device studying community.
