The aim of this book is to discuss the fundamental ideas which lie behind the statistical theory of learning and generalization. It considers learning as a general problem of function estimation based on empirical data. Omitting proofs and technical details, the author concentrates on discussing the main results of learning theory and their connections to fundamental problems in statistics. This second edition contains three new chapters devoted to further development of the learning theory and SVM techniques. Written in a readable and concise style, the book is intended for statisticians, mathematicians, physicists, and computer scientists.

SHORT BOOK REVIEWS

"This interesting book helps a reader to understand the interconnections between various streams in the empirical modeling realm and may be recommended to any reader who feels lost in modern terminology, such as artificial intelligence, neural networks, machine learning etcetera."

"The book by Vapnik focuses on how to estimate a function of parameters from empirical data ... . The book is concisely written and is intended to be useful to statisticians, computer scientists, mathematicians, and physicists. ... This book is very well written at a very high level of abstract thinking and comprehension. The references are up-to-date." (Ramalingam Shanmugam, Journal of Statistical Computation and Simulation, Vol. 75 (2), February, 2005)

"The aim of the book is to introduce a wide range of readers to the fundamental ideas of statistical learning theory. ... Each chapter is supplemented by `Reasoning and Comments' which describe the relations between classical research in mathematical statistics and research in learning theory. ... The book is well suited to promote the ideas of statistical learning theory and can be warmly recommended to all who are interested in computer learning problems." (S. Vogel, Metrika, June, 2002)
