Alex Ramirez: June 21th

Alex will be presenting a short version of this paper. In it the authors consider loss functions, for many estimators, that obey certain smoothness and convexity requirements and prove a global, geometric convergence (fast) rate of convergence under Nestorv's Gradient descent method up to a level of Statistical precision.

There will be no meeting on June 14th.
