Sublinear Time Algorithms for Earth Mover's Distance
We study the problem of estimating the Earth Mover’s Distance (EMD) between probability distributions when given access only to samples of the distributions. We give closeness t...

Bibliometric rankings of journals based on Impact Factors: An axiomatic approach
This paper proposes an axiomatic analysis of Impact Factors when used as tools for ranking journals. This analysis draws on the similarities between the problem of comparing distr...

Reasoning about MDPs as Transformers of Probability Distributions
We consider Markov Decision Processes (MDPs) as transformers on probability distributions, where with respect to a scheduler that resolves nondeterminism, the MDP can be seen as ex...

Using Substitution Matrices to Estimate Probability Distributions for Biological Sequences
Accurately estimating probabilities from observations is important for probabilistic-based approaches to problems in computational biology. In this paper we present a biologically...

Metric-Entropy Pairs on Lattices
Abstract: We introduce the notion of ∧- and ∨-pairs of functions on lattices as an abstraction of the notions of metric and its related entropy for probability distributions. T...

Well-posedness in Maxwell systems with distributions of polarization relaxation parameters
We present existence, uniqueness and continuous dependence (with respect to probability distributions on polarization parameters) of solutions in Maxwell systems. This provides a ...

PAC Learning Mixtures of Axis-Aligned Gaussians with No Separation Assumption
Abstract. We propose and analyze a new vantage point for the learning of mixtures of Gaussians: namely, the PAC-style model of learning probability distributions introduced by Kear...

Point-based non-rigid surface registration with accuracy estimation
This article presents a new method for non-rigid surface registration between a surface model and a surface of an internal organ in a given 3D medical image. The surface is repres...
