    Bayesian learning has been widely used and proved to be effective in many data modeling problems. However, computations involved in it require huge costs and generally cannot be performed exactly. The variational Bayesian approach, proposed as an approximation of Bayesian learning, has provided...

    In recent years, variational Bayesian learning has been used as an approximation of Bayesian learning. In spite of the computational tractability and good generalization in many applications, its statistical properties have yet to be clarified. In this paper, we focus on variational Bayesian...

    Bayesian learning, widely used in many applied data-modeling problems, is often accomplished with approximation schemes because it requires intractable computation of the posterior distributions. In this study, we focus on two approximation methods, variational Bayes and local variational...

    In his seminal paper (O'Hagan, A., BAYESIAN STATISTICS (1992) 4, pp. 345-363), O'Hagan introduced a framework that makes it possible to formulate many numerical problems in the language of Bayesian inference and Gaussian processes. This contribution extends O'Hagan's analysis to the field of...

    Mixed linear models, also known as two-level hierarchical models, are commonly used in many applications. In this paper, we consider the marginal distribution that arises within a Bayesian framework, when the components of variance are integrated out of the joint posterior distribution. We...

    Four decades after their invention, quasi-Newton methods are still state of the art in unconstrained numerical optimization. Although not usually interpreted thus, these are learning algorithms that fit a local quadratic approximation to the objective function. We show that many, including the...
