Fitting robust non-Gaussian models in Stan and R-INLA
Rafael Cabral, David Bolin and Håvard Rue

2023-01-19
Traditionally the excitation noise of spatial and temporal models is Gaussian. Take, for instance, an AR1 (autoregressive of order 1) process, where the increments \(x_{i+1}-\rho x_i, \ \ |\rho|<1\) are assumed to follow a Gaussian distribution. However, it is easy to find datasets that contain…

Weighted residual empirical processes in semi-parametric copula adjusted for regression
Yue Zhao, Irène Gijbels and Ingrid Van Keilegom
/
2022-12-07
In this post we first review the concept of semi-parametric copula and the accompanying estimation procedure of pseudo-likelihood estimation (PLE). We then generalize the estimation problem to the setting where the copula signal is hidden in a semi- or non-parametric regression model. Under this…

Some Recent Developments in Mixture Cure Model Methodology for Survival Analysis
Ross Maller, Sidney Resnick, Soudabeh Shemehsavar and Muzhi Zhao
/
2022-10-30
The mixture cure model in survival analysis has received large and growing attention in the last few decades. Here we present an overview drawing together early results and some recent new developments, and pointing out areas where further work is needed. […] In certain clinical trials or…

Graphical modeling of stochastic processes driven by correlated noise
Søren Wengel Mogensen and Niels Richard Hansen
/
2022-10-27
Complex systems are difficult to understand. We need good tools to study the interactions that define such systems. In this blog post, we describe how the framework in Mogensen and Hansen (2022) provides such a tool. This summary of the paper is meant to be accessible for readers with some…

Inference on Adaptively Collected Data
Ruohan Zhan
/
2022-10-11
It is increasingly common for data to be collected adaptively, where experimental costs are reduced progressively by assigning promising treatments more frequently. However, adaptivity also poses great challenges on post-experiment inference, since observations are dependent, and standard estimates…
