### Regression with error coming from rounding

I am looking at the following model: $c$ is a fixed vector in $\mathbb{R}_+^n$ and for any $x \in \mathbb{R}_+^n$ we obtain a value $y =[c^Tx]$, i.e. rounding $c^Tx$ to the nearest integer. I want ...

### Who invented linearization of exponential datasets to find their approximating functions?

I just learned how to find the exponential function that approximates a dataset by taking the logarithm of the data points, doing a linear regression on that data, then working out the exponential ...

### Weighted least squares with angular data

Suppose I have a system whose state is $\Theta=(\theta_1,\theta_2,\ldots,\theta_n)$, where $\theta_i\in[-\pi,\pi)$ (i.e., they are angles). I'd like to determine the most likely estimate of $\Theta$ ...

### Bayesian linear regression cost function

I am studying classification using linear regression . Now, I want to map it in Bayesian regression. Let talk about binary classification using linear regression again. Assume that I have a set $X=${...

### Logarithmic Functions algebra question

This is my first post and I honestly just want a second opinion on my answer to a question I got incorrect on an exam before I go arguing over it with my professor. Basically, is this mathematically ...

### Can the sigmoid function approximate any function (or relation) where 0<y<1

I'm studying Machine Learning and Artificial Neural Networks. Some basic principles of Machine Learning are linear regression, multivariate linear regression, and nonlinear regression. The last of ...
