Introduction to High-Dimensional Statistics
Praise for the first edition:
"[This book] succeeds singularly at providing a structured introduction to this active field of research. … it is arguably the most accessible overview yet published of the mathematical ideas and principles that one needs to master to enter the field of high-dimensional statistics. … recommended to anyone interested in the main results of current research in high-dimensional statistics as well as anyone interested in acquiring the core mathematical skills to enter this area of research."
—Journal of the American Statistical Association
Introduction to High-Dimensional Statistics, Second Edition preserves the philosophy of the first edition: to be a concise guide for students and researchers discovering the area and interested in the mathematics involved. The main concepts and ideas are presented in simple settings, avoiding thereby unessential technicalities. High-dimensional statistics is a fast-evolving field, and much progress has been made on a large variety of topics, providing new insights and methods. Offering a succinct presentation of the mathematical foundations of high-dimensional statistics, this new edition:
- Offers revised chapters from the previous edition, with the inclusion of many additional materials on some important topics, including compress sensing, estimation with convex constraints, the slope estimator, simultaneously low-rank and row-sparse linear regression, or aggregation of a continuous set of estimators.
- Introduces three new chapters on iterative algorithms, clustering, and minimax lower bounds.
- Provides enhanced appendices, minimax lower-bounds mainly with the addition of the Davis-Kahan perturbation bound and of two simple versions of the Hanson-Wright concentration inequality.
- Covers cutting-edge statistical methods including model selection, sparsity and the Lasso, iterative hard thresholding, aggregation, support vector machines, and learning theory.
- Provides detailed exercises at the end of every chapter with collaborative solutions on a wiki site.
- Illustrates concepts with simple but clear practical examples.
"This book summarizes many useful research tools for high-dimensional data analysis based on theoretical aspects or applications. It is a nice reference for readers to explore high-dimensional data analysis."
