The seminar will focus on representing probability measures via mean elements in characteristic reproducing Hilbert spaces.

In particular I plan to talk about:
  • RKHS ’s and characteristic kernels in general
  • homogeneity and independence testing using RKH Ss
  • density estimation via kernel moment matching
Recommended reading:
  • Gretton et al: A Kernel Method for the Two-Sample Problem, NIPS ‘08, pdf
  • recently updated Song et al: Tailoring Density Estimation via Reproducing Kernel Moment Matching www
  • Gretton et al: Measuring Statistical Dependence with Hilbert Schmidt norms, ALT ’05, pdf
