## Notation

Hey,

I just have small question regarding the notations, "L(w)" refers to the Log-Likelihood or to the expression in the second equation i attached from the slides? I understand all the concept the when minimizing it is the same because of P(X) and etc. But my question is only about the notation, which one is L(w)

Merci,

To my understanding they refer to the same thing. If you take the p(z,w) in figure 1 as MLE for logistic regression p(y,X|w) and take the log, you get the second one. (Maybe the notation in the second could be specified to argmin L_logistic(w) )
