On Maximum Entropy and Inference

Luigi Gresele, Matteo Marsili
2017 Entropy  
Maximum Entropy is a powerful concept that entails a sharp separation between relevant and irrelevant variables.  ...  It is typically invoked in inference, once an assumption is made on what the relevant variables are, in order to estimate a model from data, that affords predictions on all other (dependent) variables.  ...  Lee and William Bialek for sharing the data of [8] .  ...

Maximum-Entropy Inference and Inverse Continuity of the Numerical Range

Stephan Weis
2016 Reports on mathematical physics  
We study the continuity of the maximum-entropy inference map for two observables in finite dimensions.  ...  It shows also that the continuity of the MaxEnt inference method is independent of the prior state.  ...  Discontinuity points of the maximum-entropy inference exist on the boundary of the set of expected values while the analogous maximum-entropy inference of probability distributions is continuous.  ...

On the `fake' inferred entanglement associated with the maximum entropy inference of quantum states

J Batle, M Casas, A R Plastino, A Plastino
2001 Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and General  
The fake entanglement generated by the maximum entropy principle is also studied quantitatively by comparing the entanglement of formation of the inferred state with that of the original one.  ...  The inference of entangled quantum states by recourse to the maximum entropy principle is considered in connection with the recently pointed out problem of fake inferred entanglement [R.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS This work was partially supported by the AECI Scientific Cooperation Program, by the DGES grants PB98-0124 and SB97-26373862 (Spain), and by CONICET (Argentine Agency).  ...

Inferences on the Higgs Boson and Axion Masses through a Maximum Entropy Principle [article]

Alexandre Alves, Alex G. Dias, Roberto da Silva
2017 arXiv   pre-print
In this work we review two applications of MEP: one giving a precise inference of the Higgs boson mass value; and the other one allowing to infer the mass of the axion.  ...  The Maximum Entropy Principle (MEP) is a method that can be used to infer the value of an unknown quantity in a set of probability functions.  ...  It is shown in green on Fig. 3 the maximum points of the entropy S(m A |m 1 , r ν ).  ...

Uncertain Reasoning using Maximum Entropy Inference [chapter]

Javed A. Aslam, Emine Yilmaz, Virgiliu Pavlu
2005 Proceedings of the 28th annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '05  
We present a model, based on the maximum entropy method, for analyzing various measures of retrieval performance such as average precision, R-precision, and precision-at-cutoffs.  ...  Our methodology treats the value of such a measure as a constraint on the distribution of relevant documents in an unknown list, and the maximum entropy distribution can be determined subject to these  ...  More specifically, we develop a framework based on the maximum entropy method which allows one to infer the most "reasonable" model for the sequence of relevant and non-relevant documents in a list given  ...

Discontinuities in the Maximum-Entropy Inference [article]

Stephan Weis
2013 arXiv   pre-print
We point out the existence of discontinuities in this inference method. This is a pure quantum phenomenon since the maximum-entropy inference is continuous for mutually commuting observables.  ...  We revisit the maximum-entropy inference of the state of a finite-level quantum system under linear constraints. The constraints are specified by the expected values of a set of fixed observables.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We would like to thank Arleta Szkoła and Michael Nussbaum for an interesting discussion about maximizing entropies.  ...
