## Kernel Fisher discriminant analysis

Hello.

Please notice the edits I did on Kernel Fisher discriminant analysis, which are usages prescribed by WP:MOS and WP:MOSMATH:

• Lower-case initial letters in the title except where there's a reason for capitalization;
• Similarly in the title phrase and its synonyms in the first paragraph;
• The title phrase and its synonyms are set in bold at their first appearance;
• Lower-case initial letters in section headings except where there's a reason for capitalization (generally the first letter in a section heading is capitalized; later initial letters are not except when there is some other reason for it, such as a proper name like Fisher);
• "Displayed" TeX is indented by a colon;
• A content issue: The initial sentence in the article failed to tell the lay reader that statistics is what it's about. Now it says "In statistics,...."
• Another content issue: It now says at the outset that it's named after Ronald Fisher.

A subtler issue is that no other articles linked to that one (subtler because it's not seen in the article's edit history). I added two such links. If you click on "what links here" in the "toolbox" menu, and restrict the search to the "article" namespace, you'll see which ones currently link to it. Possibly there should be more such links. After you create a new article you should add links to it from other articles that should link to it. Michael Hardy (talk) 19:06, 12 January 2012 (UTC)

## CDF-based nonparametric confidence interval

Please notice my recent edits to CDF-based nonparametric confidence interval. The same points apply that I mentioned in my earlier posting here.

There were no other articles that linked to that article, so I added an "orphan" tag. The list of statistics articles does now link to this new article, but nothing else does yet. Michael Hardy (talk) 17:05, 30 May 2012 (UTC)

## Problems with upload of File:BranchAndPriceDiagram.png

Thanks for uploading File:BranchAndPriceDiagram.png. You don't seem to have said where the image came from, who created it, or what the copyright status is. We require this information to verify that the image is legally usable on Wikipedia, and because most image licenses require giving credit to the image's creator.

Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 03:05, 19 December 2012 (UTC)

## Speedy deletion nomination of File:BranchAndPriceDiagram.png

A tag has been placed on File:BranchAndPriceDiagram.png requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section F1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the image is an unused redundant copy (all pixels the same or scaled down) of an image in the same file format, which is on Wikipedia (not on Commons), and all inward links have been updated.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

## Indices of summation

Hi, Bmears11,

I see that on 12 December 2012 you added this integer programming version of the traveling salesman problem:

{\displaystyle {\begin{aligned}\min &\sum _{i\neq j}c_{ij}x_{ij}&\\0\leq &x_{ij}\leq 1&\forall i,j\\&x_{ij}{\text{ integer}}&\forall i,j\\&\sum _{i=0,i\neq j}^{n}x_{ij}=1&j=0,\ldots ,n\\&\sum _{j=0,j\neq i}^{n}x_{ij}=1&i=1,\ldots ,n\\u_{i}-u_{j}&+nx_{ij}\leq n-1&1\leq i\neq j\leq n\\u_{i}\geq 0&&1\leq i\leq n.\end{aligned}}}

In the last two inequalities i and j go from 1 to n, and in the second set of equalities i goes from 1 to n. But in three places i and/or j goes from 0 to n. Should these three appearances of 0 be changed to 1? Duoduoduo (talk) 15:38, 11 August 2013 (UTC)

## ArbCom elections are now open!

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
