    • n loo A game of cards. It is played by any number of persons up to seventeen with a full pack, the cards ranking as in whist. Each player deposits a certain number of chips (generally three), called a loo, in the pool, and after looking at his hand of three cards can either withdraw or declare—that is, play the hand through. The players who win the tricks divide the pool according to the number of tricks taken by each; any player declaring and failing to take a trick is looed, and must deposit three chips in the pool. Often called division loo.
    • n loo The deposit, generally of three chips, which the players make in the pool in the game of loo.
    • loo To beat in the game of loo, as a player that has declared.

Loos proved that each symmetric space (M, S ) admits a unique affine connection ∇ which is invariant with respect to all symmetries sx .

We will see that the conditions from the Loos’ algebraic definition of a symmetric space are crucial here.

An alternative set of definitions can be obtained based on removing one instance in the training sample (e.g., “LOO” or “leaveone-out” stability).
Learning From An Optimization Viewpoint
Specifically, we consider the following four LOO stability measures, each slightly weaker than the previous one.
Learning From An Optimization Viewpoint
However, we emphasize that RO stability and LOO stability are in general incomparable notions, as we shall see later on.
Learning From An Optimization Viewpoint
Example 3 is interesting in its own right, since it presents a learning problem and an AERM that is universally consistent, but not LOO stable.
Learning From An Optimization Viewpoint
While this is possible in the General Learning Setting, in supervised classification every such AERM has to be LOO stable (this is essentially proven in ).
Learning From An Optimization Viewpoint
There exists a learning problem with a universally consistent and all-i-LOO stable learning rule, but there is no universally consistent and uniform LOO stable learning rule.
Learning From An Optimization Viewpoint
However, it is not hard to see that the only uniform LOO stable learning rule, at least for large enough sample sizes, is a constant rule which always returns the same hypothesis h regardless of the sample.
Learning From An Optimization Viewpoint
There exists a learning problem with a universally consistent and LOO-stable AERM, which is not symmetric and is not all-i-LOO stable.
