Historical Analysis of Legal Opinions with a Sparse Mixed-Effects Latent Variable Model
We propose a latent variable model to enhance historical analysis of large corpora. This work extends prior work in topic modelling by incorporating metadata, and the interactions...

An Evolutionary Dynamical Analysis of Multi-Agent Learning in Iterated Games
In this paper, we investigate Reinforcement learning (RL) in multi-agent systems (MAS) from an evolutionary dynamical perspective. Typical for a MAS is that the environment is not ...

Strong recombination, weak selection, and mutation
We show that there are unimodal fitness functions and genetic algorithm (GA) parameter settings where the GA, when initialized with a random population, will not move close to the...
