Information Geometry and Its Applications by Shun-ichi Amari

By Shun-ichi Amari

This is the 1st entire ebook on details geometry, written by way of the founding father of the sphere. It starts off with an straight forward creation to dualistic geometry and proceeds to quite a lot of purposes, protecting details technology, engineering, and neuroscience. It involves 4 elements, which probably should be learn independently. A manifold with a divergence functionality is first brought, prime on to dualistic constitution, the guts of data geometry. This half (Part I) could be apprehended with none wisdom of differential geometry. An intuitive rationalization of recent differential geometry then follows partly II, even though the booklet is for the main half comprehensible with out sleek differential geometry. details geometry of statistical inference, together with time sequence research and semiparametric estimation (the Neyman–Scott problem), is tested concisely partly III. functions addressed partly IV comprise scorching present issues in desktop studying, sign processing, optimization, and neural networks. The e-book is interdisciplinary, connecting arithmetic, info sciences, physics, and neurosciences, inviting readers to a brand new global of knowledge and geometry. This ebook is very urged to graduate scholars and researchers who search new mathematical tools and instruments beneficial of their personal fields.

We further introduce new parameters μ , σ2 1 θ2 = − 2 . 23) is written in the standard form, p(x, θ) = exp {θ · x − ψ(θ)} . 2 Examples of Exponential Family: Gaussian and Discrete Distributions 35 The convex function ψ(θ) is given by √ μ2 2πσ + log 2 2σ 2 θ1 1 1 = − 2 − log −θ2 + log π. 31) we use the dominating measure of where δ is the delta function. 10) as η1 = μ, η2 = μ2 + σ 2 . 2 Discrete Distribution Distributions of discrete random variable x over X = {0, 1, . . , n} form a probability simplex Sn .

18) for which we hereafter use the abbreviation ∂i = ∂ ∂ , ∂i = . 19) Here, the position of the index i is important. If it is lower, as in ∂i , the differentiation is with respect to θi , whereas, if it is upper as in ∂ i , the differentiation is with respect to ηi . The Fisher information matrix plays a fundamental role in statistics. We prove the following theorem which connects geometry and statistics. 1 The Riemannian metric in an exponential family is the Fisher information matrix defined by 2 Exponential Families and Mixture Families of Probability .

This shows that PˆS∗ is a critical point of Dψ [P : Q], Q ∈ S, proving the theorem. The dual part is proved similarly. It should be noted that the projection theorem gives a necessary condition for the point PˆS∗ to minimize the divergence, but is not sufficient. The projection or dual projection can give the maximum or saddle point of the divergence. The following theorem gives a sufficient condition for the minimality of the projection and its uniqueness.
