The identification of relevant features, i.e., the driving variables that determine a process or the property of a system, is an essential part of the analysis of data sets whose entries are described by a large number of variables. The preferred measure for quantifying the relevance of nonlinear statistical dependencies is mutual information, which requires as input probability distributions... (read more)
