Lectures on the Nearest Neighbor Method (Springer Series in the Data Sciences)
Gérard Biau, Luc Devroye
This text presents a wide-ranging and rigorous overview of nearest neighbor methods, one of the most important paradigms in machine learning. Now in one self-contained volume, this book systematically covers key statistical, probabilistic, combinatorial and geometric ideas for understanding, analyzing and developing nearest neighbor methods.
