Default Re: Lecture 6- 2N sample

I am not sure I completely got the point that you are making, so let me just address the above statement. The growth function normally grows very fast, so it will more than double in value when its argument doubles. When we consider all dichotomies on 2N points, whether we view them as one sample or two samples, the number to be considered is m(2N).
Where everyone thinks alike, no one thinks very much
