We are pleased to have SARA VAN DE GEER, Professor of of Mathematics, ETH Zürich, as our honored speaker, for the twenty-first annual Bahadur Memorial Lectures.
There will be two lectures. In the first we present a general overview concerning adaptive estimation using total variation regularization. Our main tool will consist of so-called "interpolating vectors" which we introduce in the first lecture for the noiseless case. In the second lecture, we discuss the noisy case in more detail for some special cases. The second lecture will not require knowledge from the first one.
