Leif Peterson is a data mining and pattern recognition expert specializing in machine learning and computational intelligence(neural networks). He has over 85 peer-reviewed publications on statistical methods and machine learning algorithms, and has been modeling stock equity returns using genetic algorithms and neural networks, and modeling inter-market relationships between indexes for the last 5 years. His investment focus is mainly contrarian and value rather than growth (only) equities, focusing on long-term dividend reinvestment for well-managed corporations (big oil, pharmaceuticals, consumer staples) whose earnings increase during bear markets. In addition, his asset preservation beliefs are centered mostly on ...More 30% portfolio attribution to gold, inflation-protected US Treasuries, and foreign basic material equities. Current research involves developing models of equity returns.

Classification Analysis of DNA Microarrays Wide coverage of traditional unsupervised and supervised methods and newer contemporary approaches that help researchers handle the rapid growth of classification methods in DNA microarray studies Proliferating classification methods in DNA microarray studies have resulted in a body of information scattered ...More
throughout literature, conference proceedings, and elsewhere. This book unites many of these classification methods in a single volume. In addition to traditional statistical methods, it covers newer machine-learning approaches such as fuzzy methods, artificial neural networks, evolutionary-based genetic algorithms, support vector machines, swarm intelligence involving particle swarm optimization, and more. Classification Analysis of DNA Microarrays provides highly detailed pseudo-code and rich, graphical programming features, plus ready-to-run source code. Along with primary methods that include traditional and contemporary classification, it offers supplementary tools and data preparation routines for standardization and fuzzification; dimensional reduction via crisp and fuzzy c-means, PCA, and non-linear manifold learning; and computational linguistics via text analytics and n-gram analysis, recursive feature extraction during ANN, kernel-based methods, ensemble classifier fusion. This powerful new resource: Provides information on the use of classification analysis for DNA microarrays used for large-scale high-throughput transcriptional studies Serves as a historical repository of general use supervised classification methods as well as newer contemporary methods Brings the reader quickly up to speed on the various classification methods by implementing the programming pseudo-code and source code provided in the book Describes implementation methods that help shorten discovery times Classification Analysis of DNA Microarrays is useful for professionals and graduate students in computer science, bioinformatics, biostatistics, systems biology, and many related fields.
