Justifying and Generalizing Contrastive Divergence

Yoshua Bengio, Olivier Delalleau
2009 Neural Computation  
We show that its residual term converges to zero, justifying the use of a truncation, i.e. running only a short Gibbs chain, which is the main idea behind the Contrastive Divergence (CD) estimator of the  ...  We present theoretical and empirical evidence linking the number of Gibbs steps k and the magnitude of the RBM parameters to the bias in the CD estimator.  ...  The analysis also shows a connection between reconstruction error, log-likelihood and Contrastive Divergence (CD), which helps understand the better results generally obtained with CD and justify the use  ...

Why (and When and How) Contrastive Divergence Works [article]

Ian E Fellows
2014 arXiv   pre-print
Contrastive divergence (CD) is a promising method of inference in high dimensional distributions with intractable normalizing constants, however, the theoretical foundations justifying its use are somewhat  ...  Algorithms for performing inference are discussed and are applied to social network data using an exponential-family random graph models (ERGM).  ...  So we have three principled ways of justifying our use of the contrastive divergence moment conditions within the combined augmented divergence framework.  ...

The Dark Side of Creativity

Lanlan Liu, Maolin Ye
2015 Open Journal of Social Sciences  
In recent years, researchers have proposed the concept of the dark side of creativity and vicious creativity, and the concept focuses on the relationship between creativity and dishonesty.  ...  Creativity has been regarded as a positive force to promote the development of individuals, organizations and society. However, creativity also has a hidden dark side.  ...  performance: divergent thinking and cognitive flexibility.  ...

exTREEmaTIME: a method for incorporating uncertainty into divergence time estimates

Tom Carruthers, Robert W. Scotland
2022 Biology Open  
The method requires a minimal set of assumptions, and, based on these assumptions, estimates the oldest possible divergence times and youngest possible divergence times that are consistent with the assumptions  ...  This is critically important given that many of the assumptions that are incorporated into these methods are highly complex, difficult to justify biologically, and as such can lead to estimates that are  ...  By contrast, given that exTREEmaTIME is not model based, its estimates are highly imprecise, but generally overlap with those of other methods, and always incorporate the correct value in the simulation  ...

Scale-dependent bias from primordial non-Gaussianity in general relativity

David Wands, Anže Slosar
2009 Physical Review D  
We justify the use of the Poisson equation in general relativistic perturbation theory and thus the derivation of scale-dependent bias as a test of primordial non-Gaussianity, using the spherical collapse  ...  This leads to a formally divergent correlation function for biased tracers of the mass distribution which we discuss.  ...  DW is grateful to Rob Crittenden, Kazuya Koyama, David Lyth and Will Percival for helpful discussions. AS acknowledges useful discussions with Martin White.  ...

Comment on "Ginzburg-Landau theory of two-band superconductors: Absence of type-1.5 superconductivity"

Kogan and J. Schmalian Phys. Rev.  ...  This would in particular imply that (in contrast to U(1)× U(1) superconductors), there could be no "type-1.5" superconducting regime in U(1) multiband systems for any finite interband coupling strength  ...  In particular such a definition contradicts all existing literature on multicomponent GL theories in two band superconductors, which in contrast adopts the more general definition of GL expansion of the  ...

Variant geo- graphic and political circumstances made their very Puritan tenets lead northerners and southerners to divergent con- clusions about some issues of importance.  ...  Although differences between right-wing and left-wing Puritan thought often overshadowed northern and southern contrasts, this mental consanguinity among the colonists necessarily had its limitations.  ... 

Writing Groups as Dialogic Spaces

Kathrin Kaufhold, Daniel Egil Yencken
2021 Journal of Academic Writing  
Reference to a generic yet unspecific norm creates a space for sharing diverging perspectives while reflecting on ones' own writing.  ...  Awareness of dialogue patterns can help facilitators to decide when to step back and when to step in as moderators.  ...  By using generic 'you' and presenting it as obligation ('need'), she constructs IMRD as a commonly accepted and generally applicable norm.  ...
