Default Re: Relation between feasibility of learning and Hoeffding's Inequality.

Thank you very much for your quick response, Professor Yaser. Your course sets the bar for quality in MOOCs very high. You have my respect and gratitude.

At the beginning of minute 32 in the Lecture 2 video, you say "P can be any probability, but the choice of P can affect the value of ...". Is it \mu or \nu? My intuition tells me it should be \nu, because it is a random variable that varies with the sample, whereas \mu is a fixed but unknown parameter. However, I think I'm hearing "mu" mentioned several times in this context. Can you please clarify this point?
