comment Rigorous book on bootstrapping, boosting, bagging, etc.
@user782220 Upon more searching, I would surmise that Peter Hall's bootstrap book is probably the most rigorous one out there.

@user782220 If you're still not satisfied, the Stats SE has a good number of machine learning folks who may offer a different perspective.

comment Rigorous book on bootstrapping, boosting, bagging, etc.
@user782220 For the boosting list, I'd start with the 'overview' papers he lists. Schapire's papers seem to be on the more rigorous end of the spectrum. For bagging, Breiman's papers are the place to start. Also, the bagging list has a few Annals of Statistics papers. These are (obviously) from a statistical point of view, but are quite 'rigorous.' As for Efron's books, I don't know how 'rigorous' you're hoping to get, but you really can't go wrong with the 1994 text (IMO). Another good bootstrap reference is Davison & Hinkley.

comment How to get from $a\sqrt{1 + \frac{b^2}{a^2}}$ to $\sqrt{a^2 + b^2}$
Hint: for positive $a$, $a = \sqrt{a^2}$.
