Moment measures and stability for Gaussian inequalities
Let γ be the standard Gaussian measure on Rn and let Pγ be the space of probability measures that are absolutely continuous with respect to γ. We study lower bounds for the functional Fγ(µ) = Ent(µ) − 1 2W2 2 (µ, ν), where µ ∈ Pγ, ν ∈ Pγ, Ent(µ) = R log µ γ dµ is the relative Gaussian entropy, and W2 is the quadratic Kantorovich distance. The minimizers of Fγ are solutions to a dimension-free Gaussian analog of the (real) K¨ahler–Einstein equation. We show that Fγ(µ) is bounded from below under the assumption that the Gaussian Fisher information of ν is finite and prove a priori estimates for the minimizers. Our approach relies on certain stability estimates for the Gaussian log-Sobolev and Talagrand transportation inequalities.
Properties of Erdos measure and the invariant Erdos measure for the golden ratio and all values of the Bernoulli parameter are studies. It is proved that a shift on the two-sided Fibonacci compact set with invariant Erdos measure is isomorphic to the integral automorphism for a Bernoulli shift with countable alphabet. An effective algorithm for calculating the entropy of an invariant Erdos measure is proposed. It is shown that, for certain values of the Bernulli parameter, the algorithm gives the Hausdorff dimension of an Erdos measure to 15 decimal places.

This book presents a systematic exposition of the modern theory of Gaussian measures. The basic properties of finite and infinite dimensional Gaussian distributions, including their linear and nonlinear transformations, are discussed. The book is intended for graduate students and researchers in probability theory, mathematical statistics, functional analysis, and mathematical physics. It contains a lot of examples and exercises. The bibliography contains 844 items; the detailed bibliographical comments and subject index are included.
The book gives a systematic account of the theory of differentiable measures and the Malliavin calculus.
In this paper we propose a new machine learning concept called randomized machine learning, in which model parameters are assumed random and data are assumed to contain random errors. Distinction of this approach from "classical" machine learning is that optimal estimation deals with the probability density functions of random parameters and the "worst" probability density of random data errors. As the optimality criterion of estimation, randomized machine learning employs the generalized information entropy maximized on a set described by the system of empirical balances. We apply this approach to text classification and dynamic regression problems. The results illustrate capabilities of the approach.
A new approach to network decomposition problems (and, hence, to classification problems, presented in network form) is suggested. Opposite to the conventional approach, consisting in construction of one, “the most correct” decomposition (classification), the suggested approach is focused on construction of a family of classifications. Basing on this family, two numerical indices are introduced and calculated. The suggested indices describe the complexity of the initial classification problem as whole. The expedience and applicability of the elaborated approach are illustrated by two well-known and important cases: political voting body and stock market. In both cases the presented results cannot be obtained by other known methods. It confirms the perspectives of the suggested approach.
A survey of recent progress and open problems in the theory of Gaussian measures is given.
Consider a Bayesian problem of estimating of probability of success in a series of trials with binary outcomes. We study the asymp- totic behaviour of weighted differential entropy for posterior probability density function (PDF) conditional on x successes after n trials, when n → ∞. Suppose that one is interested to know whether the coin is fair or not and for large n is interested in true frequency. In other words, one wants to emphasize the parameter value p = 1/2. To do so the concept of weighted differential entropy introduced in  is used when the frequency γ is necessary to emphasize. It was found that the weight in suggested form does not change the asymptotic form of Shannon, Renyi, Tsallis and Fisher entropies, but change the constants. The leading term in weighted Fisher Information is changed by some constant which depend on distance between the true frequency and the value we want to emphasize.
A model for organizing cargo transportation between two node stations connected by a railway line which contains a certain number of intermediate stations is considered. The movement of cargo is in one direction. Such a situation may occur, for example, if one of the node stations is located in a region which produce raw material for manufacturing industry located in another region, and there is another node station. The organization of freight traﬃc is performed by means of a number of technologies. These technologies determine the rules for taking on cargo at the initial node station, the rules of interaction between neighboring stations, as well as the rule of distribution of cargo to the ﬁnal node stations. The process of cargo transportation is followed by the set rule of control. For such a model, one must determine possible modes of cargo transportation and describe their properties. This model is described by a ﬁnite-dimensional system of diﬀerential equations with nonlocal linear restrictions. The class of the solution satisfying nonlocal linear restrictions is extremely narrow. It results in the need for the “correct” extension of solutions of a system of diﬀerential equations to a class of quasi-solutions having the distinctive feature of gaps in a countable number of points. It was possible numerically using the Runge–Kutta method of the fourth order to build these quasi-solutions and determine their rate of growth. Let us note that in the technical plan the main complexity consisted in obtaining quasi-solutions satisfying the nonlocal linear restrictions. Furthermore, we investigated the dependence of quasi-solutions and, in particular, sizes of gaps (jumps) of solutions on a number of parameters of the model characterizing a rule of control, technologies for transportation of cargo and intensity of giving of cargo on a node station.
Let k be a field of characteristic zero, let G be a connected reductive algebraic group over k and let g be its Lie algebra. Let k(G), respectively, k(g), be the field of k- rational functions on G, respectively, g. The conjugation action of G on itself induces the adjoint action of G on g. We investigate the question whether or not the field extensions k(G)/k(G)^G and k(g)/k(g)^G are purely transcendental. We show that the answer is the same for k(G)/k(G)^G and k(g)/k(g)^G, and reduce the problem to the case where G is simple. For simple groups we show that the answer is positive if G is split of type A_n or C_n, and negative for groups of other types, except possibly G_2. A key ingredient in the proof of the negative result is a recent formula for the unramified Brauer group of a homogeneous space with connected stabilizers. As a byproduct of our investigation we give an affirmative answer to a question of Grothendieck about the existence of a rational section of the categorical quotient morphism for the conjugating action of G on itself.
Let G be a connected semisimple algebraic group over an algebraically closed field k. In 1965 Steinberg proved that if G is simply connected, then in G there exists a closed irreducible cross-section of the set of closures of regular conjugacy classes. We prove that in arbitrary G such a cross-section exists if and only if the universal covering isogeny Ĝ → G is bijective; this answers Grothendieck's question cited in the epigraph. In particular, for char k = 0, the converse to Steinberg's theorem holds. The existence of a cross-section in G implies, at least for char k = 0, that the algebra k[G]G of class functions on G is generated by rk G elements. We describe, for arbitrary G, a minimal generating set of k[G]G and that of the representation ring of G and answer two Grothendieck's questions on constructing generating sets of k[G]G. We prove the existence of a rational (i.e., local) section of the quotient morphism for arbitrary G and the existence of a rational cross-section in G (for char k = 0, this has been proved earlier); this answers the other question cited in the epigraph. We also prove that the existence of a rational section is equivalent to the existence of a rational W-equivariant map T- - - >G/T where T is a maximal torus of G and W the Weyl group.
