This course will focus on theoretical aspects of Statistical Learning and Sequential Prediction. The minimax approach, which we emphasize throughout the course, offers a systematic way of comparing learning problems. Beyond the theoretical analysis, we will discuss learning algorithms and, in particular, an important connection between learning and optimization.

We begin with the historical development of statistical network modeling and then we introduce some examples in the network literature. Our subsequent discussion focuses on prominent static and dynamic network models and their interconnections.
