Typo

On page 20, we read:

Quote:
 What µ tells us is the error rate h makes in approximating f. If v happens to be close to zero, we can predict that h will approximate f well over the entire input space. If not, we are out of luck.
I think it is v not µ at the first occurrence.

Re: Typo

Yes you are right, the is the true difference, but is unknown then I think it can't say something to us, because we don't have it. We just have which tells something to us about . Maybe using " is ...." instead of "tells us" is better.
