MATH Seminar: “Hoeffding’s Inequality”, Gökhan Yıldırım, SA-141, 4:40PM March 3 (EN)

Dear Colleagues and Students,

You are cordially invited to the Analysis Seminar organized by the Department of Mathematics.

Speaker: Gökhan Yıldırım (Bilkent)

“Hoeffding’s Inequality”

Abstract: Concentration inequalities quantify how a random variable deviates from its mean by giving fast-decaying bounds on the tail probabilities. Such inequalities have very useful and interesting applications in statistics, data science, and machine learning. I will review Hoeffding’s inequality with its proof and present some applications.
