Stanislav MINSKER (University of Southern California) “Median-of-means estimator and its generalizations

Abstract: New results are presented for the class of estimators obtained via the generalization of the median-of-means (MOM) technique. These results stem from connections between performance of MOM-type estimators and the rates of convergence in normal approximation. We provide tight non-asymptotic deviations guarantees in the form of exponential concentration inequalities, as well as asymptotic results in the form of limit theorems. Finally, we will discuss multivariate extensions.
