- QUOTE: Any strictly convex loss function over an unbounded interval is unbounded. It is not always realistic to use an unbounded loss function. A common bounded loss function is the 0-1 loss function, which may be : [math]L_{0−1}(θ, a) = 0 \ \text{if} \mid g(θ)−a \mid ≤ α(n)[/math] : [math]L_{0−1}(θ,a)=1 \ \text{otherwise}.[/math]
