Last and maybe most exciting day of the “High-dimensional Stochastic Simulation and Optimisation in Image Processing” in Bristol as it was exclusively about simulation (MCMC) methods. Except my own talk on ABC. And Peter Green’s on consistency of Bayesian inference in non-regular models. The talks today were indeed about using convex optimisation devices to speed up […]
This post is the third and last in a series of posts containing revisions of the abstractmath.org article Alphabets. The first two were: The Greek alphabet in math The use of fraktur in math Addition to the listings for the Greek alphabet Sigma: $\Sigma,\,\sigma$ or ς: sĭg'mɘ.
