Nonparametric inference based on statistical depth
2022-10-03
Nonparametric inference based on statistical depth Monday, October 17th, 7:00 PT / 10:00 ET / 16:00 CET The notion of center of an object, be it a set of observations, a physical object or a random variable, is difficult to define. This motivated the development of general ways to measure centrality…

Bayesian nonparametric (BNP) models are a prominent tool for performing flexible inference with a natural quantification of uncertainty. Traditionallly, flexible inference within a homogeneous sample is performed with exchangeable models of the type \(X_1,\dots, X_n|\tilde \mu \sim T(\tilde \mu)\),…

Protection against disclosure is a legal and ethical obligation for agencies releasing microdata files for public use. Consider a microdata sample \({X}_n=(X_{1},\ldots,X_{n})\) of size \(n\) from a finite population of size \(\bar{n}=n+\lambda n\), with \(\lambda>0\), such that each sample…
