Tampere University of Technology, Finland

‘The minimum description length (MDL) principle is a very universal principle of statistical modeling in estimation, prediction, testing, and coding. Jorma Rissanen, the pioneer of the MDL principle, evolves a new theory to reach the most general and complete notion, which he calls the complete MDL principle. In this book the author derives it by introducing the key notion of maximum capacity. The most fundamental methods of estimation such as maximum likelihood estimation and the MDL estimation are naturally derived as the maximum capacity estimators, and their optimality is justified within a unifying theoretical framework. Through the book, readers can revisit the meaning of estimation from the author’s very original viewpoint, and will enjoy the most advanced version of the MDL principle.’ Kenji Yamanishi, University of Tokyo 2012 247 x 174 mm 170pp 8 b/w illus.  3 tables   978-1-107-00474-0 Hardback £55.00  eBook available
