报告题目:Stochastic Approximation Algorithm: General Theory and Its Applications

报告摘要:Estimating unknown parameters based on observed data widely exists in diverse areas of both theory and application. In many cases, the parameter estimation problems can be transformed into a rooting-searching problem for an unknown function f(x_0)=0. Aiming at solving the stated problem, Robbins and Monro proposed the following recursive algorithm in 1950s

x_{k+1}=x_k+a_k*y_{k+1}, k>=0

to approximate the sought-for root x_0, where a_k is the step size and y_k is the noisy observation. This kind of algorithm is called the stochastic approximation algorithm. Until now, for stochastic approximation, there have been a large amount of applications to practical problems and research works on theoretical issues.

In this talk, we will introduce the general theory for stochastic approximation algorithm, including the convergence conditions, general convergence theorem as well as the convergence rate. Then we will introduce some applications of stochastic approximation algorithm in system identification and parameter estimation, including the recursive identification for the nonlinear system with binary-valued output observations and the distributed randomized algorithm for PageRank computation.
