Parameter estimation of modified gray model GM (1, N) and model application Commun. Stat. Simul. Comput. (IF 0.49) Pub Date : 20200527
Maolin Cheng; Jiano Li; Yun Liu; Minyin XiangThe GM (1, N) model is an important prediction model among gray models, but the conventional GM (1, N) model shows big errors sometimes mainly due to the structural inconsistency between the gray differential equation for parameter estimation and the whitening equation for prediction. The paper derives the modified model of conventional gray differential equation based on the whitening equation, and

ShuoChun Weng; YinChu Chang; ChyongMei ChenMethods for joint analysis of longitudinal measures and rightcensored survival outcomes have received much attention in the literature. However, in clinic and epidemiology research, the event of interest is only examined at the inspection time, resulting in the intervalcensored failure time data. In this article, we construct a joint model for the longitudinal outcomes and the failure time, which

John W. Lau; Edward Cripps; Sally CrippsThis article introduces a Bayesian multiple change point model for a collection of degradation signals in order to predict remaining useful life of rotational bearings. The model is designed for longitudinal data, where each trajectory is a time series segmented into multiple states of degradation using a product partition structure.

Coclustering for binary and functional data Commun. Stat. Simul. Comput. (IF 0.49) Pub Date : 20200519
Yosra Ben Slimen; Julien Jacques; Sylvain AllioDue to the diversity of mobile network technologies, the volume of data that has to be observed by mobile operators in a daily basis has become enormous. This huge volume has become an obstacle to mobile networks management. This paper aims to provide a simplified representation of these data for an easier analysis. A modelbased coclustering algorithm for mixed data, functional and binary, is therefore

Hao Chen; Lanshan Han; Alvin LimLatent class model (LCM), which is a finite mixture of different categorical distributions, is one of the most widely used models in statistics and machine learning fields. Because of its noncontinuous nature and flexibility in shape, researchers in areas such as marketing and social sciences also frequently use LCM to gain insights from their data. One likelihoodbased method, the expectation–maximization

Moreover, the aggregated estimator, corresponding to the non null true

Gustavo Soutinho; Luís MeiraMachado; Pedro OliveiraOne major goal in clinical applications of multistate models is the estimation of transition probabilities. Estimators based on subsampling were recently introduced by de UñaÁlvarez and MeiraMachado to estimate these quantities, and their superiority with respect to the competing estimators has been proved in situations in which the Markov condition is violated. The idea behind the proposed estimators

Sezen Mutali; Raluca VernicIntroduced to model heavytailed actuarial loss data, the composite Lognormal–Pareto distribution is piecewise built from the Lognormal and Pareto densities defined on mutually disjoint intervals. When estimating its parameters, the main challenge is the estimation of the unknown threshold where the density form changes. Motivated by the uncertainty of this parameter, in this article we consider two

Abir El Haj; Yousri Slaoui; PierreYves Louis; Zaher KhraibaniStochastic blockmodels have been widely proposed as a probabilistic random graph model for the analysis of networks data as well as for detecting community structure in these networks. In a number of realworld networks, not all ties among nodes have the same weight. Ties among networks nodes are often associated with weights that differentiate them in terms of their strength, intensity, or capacity

The main algorithm STWSVR is to solve a pair of quadratic programing problems (QPPs)

Kernel method for overlapping coefficients estimation Commun. Stat. Simul. Comput. (IF 0.49) Pub Date : 20200502
Omar M. Eidous; Saif AlDeen A. ALTalafhaMost studies of estimating overlapping coefficients assume two specific parametric models for population densities. The methods that used such of this assumption are called parametric methods, which work well when these model assumptions are valid. Violation of parametric model assumption often leads to a poor estimation. The alternative nonparametric methods are more flexible than the parametric one

Jian Shi; Yixuan Meng; Shaoping Wang; Zongxia JiaoThe traditional network reliability research generally focuses on the topological connectivity among given nodes based on graph theory. Without considering the relationship between network failures and network performance degradation, traditional network reliability analysis cannot reflect actual network ability reaching up to a certain accomplishment level over a utilization interval. As for the performability

A simulationbased comparison of two methods for determining the treatment effect in children diagnosed with hyperkinetic disorder Commun. Stat. Simul. Comput. (IF 0.49) Pub Date : 20200501
Maria Iachina; Peter MorlingIn order to show the effect of treatment, the change between two repeated psychometric measurements at the individual level should be estimated. The simplest method is to calculate the absolute difference between two measurements. However, measurements obtained in a clinical setting are often influenced by other changes not related to the treatment. One of the typical sources of error is regression

Vasileios Alevizakos; Christos KoukouvinosIn many industrial and nonindustrial processes, the quality of a product or a process are described by a functional relationship between a response variable and one or more independent variables, known as profile. On the other hand, the process capability indices provide numerical measures of the process ability. Few researches have been done to evaluate the process capability of profiles; especially

For each customer, the server provides two phases of service, namely, first essential service (FES) and SOS. All the customers demand

A study of the performance of 2stage adaptive optimal designs in a logistic doseresponse model Commun. Stat. Simul. Comput. (IF 0.49) Pub Date : 20200421
Karabi Nandy; Rajesh Ranjan NandyIt is wellknown that optimal designs for logistics regression models depend on the unknown parameter values. In practice, guess values are used as proxies. Thus the actual design implemented is a pseudo optimal design. In this article, we assess whether this problem in optimality from illguessed parameter values can be improved by a 2stage optimal design. We examine the optimal allocation of resources

Rong Jiang; MengFan Guo; Xin LiuThe singleindex models (SIMs) provide an efficient way of coping with highdimensional nonparametric estimation problems and avoid the “curse of dimensionality.” Many existing estimation procedures for SIMs were built on least square loss, which is popular for its mathematical beauty but is nonrobust to nonnormal errors and outliers. This article addressed the question of both robustness and efficiency

To achieve such accuracy, in the presence of multiple diagnostic tests or biomarkers, biomarker combinations aim to achieve maximum accuracy. As existing biomarker combination methods combine only continuous biomarkers, therefore in this study biomarker combination for binary biomarkers was created by suggesting an approach
