    Practical information

    Course description: In this course we will review the recent advances in high-dimensional statistics. We will cover concepts in empirical process theory, concentration of measure, and random matrix theory in the context of understanding the statistical properties of high-dimensional estimation methods. In this discussion we will also overview the computational constraints that are involved with solving high-dimensional problems and touch upon concepts in convex optimization and online learning.

    Lectures: 24 Hillhouse Ave Rm 107; Tues, Thurs 12:00-1:15.

    Grading: Homework

    Required background: The prerequisites are previous coursework in linear algebra, multivariate calculus, and basic probability and statistics.
