Now suppose P is the underlying true distribution of the data, which is unknown.
Obviously, a Donsker class is Glivenko-Cantelli in probability by an application of Slutsky's theorem. The covering number. The entropy is the logarithm of the covering number.
The study of isoperimetric inequalities involves a fascinating interplay of analysis, geometry and the theory of partial differential equations. Several conjectures. /san / subject: Pure Mathematics, Mathematical Physics/ Theoretical Physics. Symmetrization and Applications Volume 3 S KesavanThe.
The next condition is a version of the celebrated Dudley's theorem. In the last integral, the notation means. The majority of the arguments of how to bound the empirical process, rely on symmetrization, maximal and concentration inequalities and chaining.
Symmetrization is usually the first step of the proofs, and since it is used in many machine learning proofs on bounding empirical loss functions including the proof of the VC inequality which is discussed in the next section it is presented here. Turns out that there is a connection between the empirical and the following symmetrized process:. Therefore, it is a sub-Gaussian process by Hoeffding's inequality.
Lemma Symmetrization. After an application of Jensen's inequality different signs could be introduced hence the name symmetrization without changing the expectation. The proof can be found below because of its instructive nature. Therefore, by Jensen's inequality :.
Therefore, the RHS remains the same under "sign perturbation":. Uniform covering numbers can be controlled by the notion of Vapnik-Chervonenkis classes of sets - or shortly VC sets.
A similar bound can be shown with a different constant, same rate for the so-called VC subgraph classes. Then if. Finally an example of a VC-subgraph class is considered.
The vectors:. There are generalizations of the notion VC subgraph class, e. The interested reader can look into .
A similar setting is considered, which is more common to machine learning. Similarly to the previous section, define the shattering coefficient also known as growth function :. Therefore, in terms of the previous section the shattering coefficient is precisely. However the empirical risk , given by:.
The connection between this framework and the Empirical Process framework is evident. Here one is dealing with a modified empirical process. The proof of the first part of VC inequality, relies on symmetrization, and then argue conditionally on the data using concentration inequalities in particular Hoeffding's inequality.
