Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Statistics
  • Algorithm
  • Artificial intelligence

Jorma Rissanen mainly investigates Algorithm, Minimum description length, Discrete mathematics, Information theory and Data compression. Jorma Rissanen combines subjects such as Statistics and Artificial intelligence with his study of Algorithm. He has researched Minimum description length in several fields, including Structure, Orthonormal basis, Stochastic complexity, Stochastic optimization and Statistical model.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Interval tree, Fractal tree index, Combinatorics, Logarithm and Class in addition to Discrete mathematics. His research integrates issues of Tree, Markov model, Asymptotically optimal algorithm, Upper and lower bounds and Segment tree in his study of Information theory. His research on Estimation theory also deals with topics like

  • Sequence most often made with reference to Identification,
  • Moving average that intertwine with fields like Autoregressive–moving-average model.

His most cited work include:

  • Paper: Modeling by shortest data description (4970 citations)
  • Stochastic Complexity In Statistical Inquiry (1450 citations)
  • A UNIVERSAL PRIOR FOR INTEGERS AND ESTIMATION BY MINIMUM DESCRIPTION LENGTH (1424 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His scientific interests lie mostly in Algorithm, Minimum description length, Artificial intelligence, Applied mathematics and Mathematical optimization. His Algorithm research incorporates elements of Coding and Arithmetic. His Minimum description length research focuses on subjects like Statistical model, which are linked to Model selection.

His Artificial intelligence research incorporates themes from Machine learning, Statistical inference and Pattern recognition. His Applied mathematics research includes elements of Structure and Stochastic process, Statistics, Fisher information, Estimation theory. His Mathematical optimization study combines topics in areas such as Optimal estimation, Linear model and Stochastic complexity.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Algorithm (33.13%)
  • Minimum description length (15.95%)
  • Artificial intelligence (14.72%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2004-2016)?

  • Science and engineering (4.29%)
  • Mathematical optimization (13.50%)
  • Minimum description length (15.95%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Jorma Rissanen focuses on Science and engineering, Mathematical optimization, Minimum description length, Library science and Optimal estimation. His Mathematical optimization research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Logarithm, Noise and Applied mathematics. His Minimum description length study contributes to a more complete understanding of Algorithm.

The study of Algorithm is intertwined with the study of Model selection in a number of ways. He works mostly in the field of Optimal estimation, limiting it down to concerns involving Estimator and, occasionally, Information theory, Mutual information, Estimation theory, Probability and statistics and Statistical hypothesis testing. While the research belongs to areas of Kolmogorov structure function, Jorma Rissanen spends his time largely on the problem of Parameter space, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Discrete mathematics, Structure and Statistical model.

Between 2004 and 2016, his most popular works were:

  • Information and complexity in statistical modeling (251 citations)
  • An MDL Framework for Data Clustering (71 citations)
  • Minimum Description Length Principle. (46 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Statistics
  • Algorithm
  • Artificial intelligence

Jorma Rissanen mostly deals with Minimum description length, Cluster analysis, Data compression, Robustness and Applied mathematics. His Minimum description length research is within the category of Algorithm.
