Would logistic regression/support vector-machine with l-2 regularization and early stopping regularization cause underfitting?

Would early stopping regularization combined with l-2 regularization or in logistic regression/support vector machine cause underfitting? Does a kernel-trick affect what combination of regularization ...

Iterative generalized ridge regression

I am looking for some references. Assume I have a series of observable input/output pairs $(y_t, X_t)$ for which I assume the following relations to hold: $$\beta_t\text{ are i.i.d. }\sim N(\bar{\beta}...

Regularization Terms in MLE

Can you add regularization terms to any likelihood function you're trying to maximize? (e.g. L2/Tikhonov, Lasso terms) I'm used to seeing this done with simple quadratic loss functions (e.g. for ...

effect of multiplying by Tikhonov regularization factor after an inverse?

I came across a repository which uses Tikhonov regularization to compute an inverse, but then in the inference step they multiply by the Tikhonov factor again... Compute $\Phi\Phi^T$ Compute the ...

Ridge regularization - intuition behind $\lambda$

I have seen many similar questions and I understand that $\lambda$ is some kind of a tuning parameter that decides how much we want to penalize the flexibility of our model. In other words $\lambda$ ...

Entropy regularization versus L2 norm regularization?

In multiple regression problems, the decision variable, coefficients $\beta$, can be regularized by its L2 (Euclidean) norm, shown below (in the second term) for least squares regression. This type of ...

Regularization and multicollinearity

Multicollinearity/collinearity, from what I understand, occurs when 2 or more predictor/independent variables (variates) are strongly linearly dependent. This leads to overfitting, and we could use ...

Trace of the Hat Matrix in Ridge Regression

Generally, I know that the trace of the hat matrix ($H$) is equal to the rank of H since it is an orthogonal projection. If I wanted to show the trace of $H$ in ridge regression, would I be able to ...

Why we only use L1 and L2 in penalized regression [duplicate]

I understand we do not want to go lower than 1 because the problem is no longer convex. But why not use L3 for example? Is there any reason why L2 is so popular but not higher norm?

Why does $l_2$ norm regularization not have a square root?
