Non-stationary wrapped Gaussian spatial response model

2023-11-22
Circular data, i.e., data defined on the unit circle, can be found in many areas of science. The unique nature of these data means that conventional methods for non-circular data are not valid for these. At the same time, advances in geographical information and global positioning systems have…

Linear-cost unbiased estimator for large crossed random effect models via couplings
Paolo Ceriani and Giacomo Zanella

2023-09-27
In the following we show how it is possible to obtain parallelizable, unbiased and computationally cheap estimates of Crossed random effects models with a linear cost in the number of datapoints (and paramaters) exploiting couplings. […] CREM model a continuous response variables \(Y\) as…

Bayesian nonparametric modeling of conditional multidimensional dependence structures
Rosario Barone and Luciana Dalla Valle

In many real data applications we are often required to model jointly \(d\geq 3\) continuous random variables, denoted as \(Y_1,\dots,Y_d\) . The multivariate distribution, which allows us to describe the joint behaviour of those variables, can be denoted as \(F(Y_1,\dots,Y_d)=P(Y_1\le…

Fitting robust non-Gaussian models in Stan and R-INLA
Rafael Cabral, David Bolin and HÃ¥vard 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…

Selection of Priors in Bayesian Structural Equation Modeling
2022-02-14
Selection of Priors in Bayesian Structural Equation Modelling Structural equation modeling (SEM) is an important framework within the social sciences that encompasses a wide variety of statistical models. Traditionally, estimation of SEMs has relied on maximum likelihood. Unfortunately, there also…

Recent Advances in Approximate Bayesian Inference
2022-02-08
Recent Advances in Approximate Bayesian Inference In approximate Bayesian computation, likelihood function is intractable and needs to be itself estimated using forward simulations of the statistical model (Beaumont et al., 2002; Marin et al., 2012; Sisson et al., 2019; Martin et al., 2020). Recent…
