Oracle property, Advanced Statistics

Oracle property is a name given to techniques for estimating the regression parameters in the models fitted to high-dimensional data which have the property that they can correctly select the nonzero coefficients with the probability converging to one and that the estimators of nonzero coefficients are asymptotically normal with the identical means and covariances that they would have if the zero coefficients were known in advance that is the estimators are asymptotically as efficient as the ideal estimation assisted by an 'oracle' who knows which coefficients are nonzero.
