Perhaps the ultimate non-parametric detector makes no assumptions about the observations' probability distribution under either model. Here, we assumethat data representative of each model are available to train the detection algorithm. One approach uses artificial neuralnetworks, which are difficult to analyze in terms of both optimality and performance. When the observations arediscrete-valued, a provable optimal detection algorithm ( Gutman ) can be derived using the theory of types .

For a two-model evaluation problem, let r (length L ) denote training data representative of some unknown probability distribution P . We assume that the data have statistically independentcomponents. To derive a non-parametric detector, form a generalized likelihood ratio to distinguish whether a set ofobservations r (length L ) has the same distribution as the training data or a different one Q . r P Q P r Q r P P r P r Because a type is the maximum likelihood estimate of the probability distribution (see Histogram Estimators ), we simply substitute types for the training data and observationsprobability distributions into the likelihood ratio. The probability of a set of observations having a probabilitydistribution identical to its type equals L P . Thus, the log likelihood ratio becomes r L P r L P r L L P r , r The denominator term means that the training and observed data are lumped together to form a type. This type equals the linearcombination of the types for the training and observed data weighted by their relative lengths. P r , r L P r L P r L L Returning to the log likelihood ratio, we have that r L P r L P r L L L P r L P r L L Note that the last term equals L L L P r L P r L L a a L P r a L P r a L P r a L P r a L L which means it can be combined with the other terms to yield the simple expression for the log likelihood ratio.

When the training data and the observed data are drawn from the same distribution, the Kullback-Leibler distances will besmall. When the distributions differ, the distances will be larger. Defining 0 to be the model that the training data and observations have the same distribution and 1 that they don't, Gutman showed that when we use the decision rule 1 L r 0 1 its false-alarm probability has an exponential rate at least as large as the threshold and the miss probability is thesmallest among all decision rules based on training data. L 1 L P F and P M minimum.

We can extend these results to the K -model case if we have training data r i (each of length L ) that represent model i , i 0 K 1 . Given observed data r (length L ), we calculate the log likelihood function given above for each model todetermine whether the observations closely resemble the tested training data or not. More precisely, define the sufficientstatistics i according to i P r P r , r i L L P r P r , r i Ideally, this statistic would be negative for one of the training sets (matching it) and positive for all of the others(not matching them). However, we could also have the observation matching more than one training set. In all such cases, wedefine a rejection region ? similar to what we defined in sequential model evaluation . Thus, we define the i th decision region i according to i 0 and j 0 , j i and the rejection region as the complement of i 0 K 1 i . Note that all decision regions depend on the value of , a number we must choose. Regardless of the value chosen, the probability ofconfusing models - choosing some model other than the true one - has an exponential rate that is at least for all models. Because of the presence of a rejection region, another kind of "error" isto not choose any model. This decision rule is optimal in the sense that no other training-data-based decision rule has asmaller rejection region than the type-based one.

Because it controls the exponential rate of confusing models, we would like to be as large as possible. However, the rejection region grows as increases; choosing too large a value could make virtually all decisionsrejections. What we want to ensure is that L i ? 0 . Obtaining this behavior requires that L L L 0 : As the length of the observations increases, so must the size of the training set. In summary, for some i : L L L 0 0 L i ? 1 i L L L 0 0 L 1 L i ? 0 The critical value 0 depends on the true distributions underlying the models. The exponential rate of the rejection probability also depends on the true distributions. These results mean that if sufficient trainingdata are available and the decision threshold is not too large, then we can perform optimal detection based entirely on data! Asthe number of observations increases (and the amount of training data as well), the critical threshold 0 becomes the Kullback-Liebler distance between the unknown models. In other words, the type-based detector becomesoptimal!

Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
