## The variance of Exp3

In an earlier post we analyzed an algorithm called Exp3 for $k$-armed adversarial bandits for which the expected regret is bounded by \begin{align*} R_n = \max_{a \in [k]} \E\left[\sum_{t=1}^n y_{tA_t} – y_{ta}\right] \leq \sqrt{2n k \log(k)}\,. \end{align*} The setting of Continue Reading
