Title: Large numbers of explanatory variables.

Abstract: The lasso and its variants are powerful methods for regression analysis when there are a small number of study individuals and a large number of potential explanatory variables. There results a single model, while there may be several simple representations equally compatible with the data. I will outline a different approach, whose aim is essentially a confidence set of models. The talk is based on joint work with David Cox.
