Re: Exercises and Problems
Exercise 3.2 does not seem clear concerning the test set of size 1,000 mentioned at the end. The sentence begins "Similarly" implying that this test set becomes a data set D of size N = 1,000 to be made not linearly separable. Then you repeat the whole experiment on the new data set D.
But, because the purpose is to examing E_out, perhaps the intent is to take 1,000 points that are (very likely to be) out of sample, and evaluate wvector vs. whatvector on them.

Re: Exercises and Problems
I've found the level of the problems to be about right. Doing them really helps one to digest the material. So far so good!

Re: Exercises and Problems
Would it be possible for you to release solutions to the exercises on this forum? It would be great to check my logic as I am doing these problems.

Re: Exercises and Problems
Exercise 3.6 was a mess. It's not that hard, but the notations are all messed up with no explanation and errors.
