Abstract

This is a sourcebook tat will introduce the scientific community to the foundations of the Minimum Description Length (MDL) Principle, recent theretical advances, and practical applications. The book begins with an extensive tutorial on MDL. It then presents recent theoretical advances in a way that is accessible to readers from many different scientific fields. The book concludes with examples of how to apply MDL in research settings that range from bioinformatics and machine learning to psychology. The book contains chapters by all major researchers in the MDL area, including A. Barron, P. Grunwald, J. Rissanen, P. Vitanyi and B. Yu.
