Universal probability-free prediction [article]

Vladimir Vovk, Dusko Pavlovic
2017 arXiv   pre-print
We construct universal prediction systems in the spirit of Popper's falsifiability and Kolmogorov complexity and randomness.  ...  These prediction systems do not depend on any statistical assumptions (but under the IID assumption they dominate, to within the usual accuracy, conformal prediction).  ...  Universal conformal prediction under the IID assumption Up to this point our exposition has been completely probability-free, but in this section we will consider the special case where the data are generated  ...

Topology of Evolving Networks: Local Events and Universality

Réka Albert, Albert-László Barabási
2000 Physical Review Letters  
Finally, we use the obtained predictions to fit the connectivity distribution of the network describing the professional links between movie actors.  ...  We propose a continuum theory that predicts these two regimes as well as the scaling function and the exponents, in good agreement with the numerical results.  ...  On the other hand, our results indicate the existence of a different criterium for universality based on the functional form of P (k): Our model predicts the existence of two regimes, the scale-free and  ...

In this case, there are now four free parameters and the predictions for them are: H_0 = 65.01^+1.81_-1.71, Ω_k0 = - 2.73^+1.53_-0.97, Ω_m0 = 0.00^+1.22_-0.00, Ω_c0 = 1.34^+0.94_-0.70, A̅ = 1.000^+0.000  ...  The age of the Universe, the deceleration parameter and the moment the Universe begins to accelerate are also evaluated. The quartessence scenario, is favoured.  ...  The probability to have a flat Universe is 37.04%. For the CGM, such numbers increase slightly : for example, the probability to have a closed Universe is extremely near 100%: 3.59σ.  ...
