A game-theoretical model of competition for staff between two departments

A. Y. Garnaev (2006)

Banach Center Publications

The main purpose of this paper is to analyze a development of a scenario suggested by Baston and Garnaev (2005) for modelling the situation where two departments in a large organization are each seeking to make an appointment within the same area of expertise, for instance, a computer science specialist. The departments are interested in three skills of the candidate (say, writing code, communication and in algorithms). In our scenario Department 1 wants to employ a candidate with excellent skills...

A nonasymptotic theorem for unnormalized Feynman–Kac particle models

F. Cérou, P. Del Moral, A. Guyader (2011)

Annales de l'I.H.P. Probabilités et statistiques

We present a nonasymptotic theorem for interacting particle approximations of unnormalized Feynman–Kac models. We provide an original stochastic analysis-based on Feynman–Kac semigroup techniques combined with recently developed coalescent tree-based functional representations of particle block distributions. We present some regularity conditions under which the -relative error of these weighted particle measures grows linearly with respect to the time horizon yielding what seems to be the first...

A remark on Vapnik-Chervonienkis classes

Agata Smoktunowicz (1997)

Colloquium Mathematicae

We show that the family of all lines in the plane which is a VC class of index 2 cannot be obtained in a finite number of steps starting with VC classes of index 1 and applying the operations of intersection and union. This confirms a common belief among specialists and solves a question asked by several authors.

A stationary random graph of no growth rate

Ádám Timár (2014)

Annales de l'I.H.P. Probabilités et statistiques

We present a random automorphism-invariant subgraph of a Cayley graph such that with probability 1 its exponential growth rate does not exist.
