Learning Monotone Log-Term DNF Formulas under the Uniform Distribution

  • Y. Sakai

Based on the uniform distribution PAC learning model, the learnability for the class of monotone disjunctive normal form formulas with at most O (log n ) terms, denoted O (log n )-term MDNF, is investigated. Using the technique of restriction, an algorithm that learns O (log n )-term MDNF by examples in polynomial time is given.
