Geometrical foundations of asymptotic inference by Robert E Kass( Book )

16 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Differential geometry provides an aesthetically appealing and often revealing view of statistical inference. Beginning with an elementary treatment of one-parameter statistical models and ending with an overview of recent developments, this is the first book to provide an introduction to the subject that is largely accessible to readers not already familiar with differential geometry. It also gives a streamlined entry into the field to readers with richer mathematical backgrounds. Much space is devoted to curved exponential families, which are of interest not only because they may be studied g
Analysis of neural data by Robert E Kass( )

17 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Continual improvements in data collection and processing have had a huge impact on brain research, producing data sets that are often large and complicated. By emphasizing a few fundamental principles, and a handful of ubiquitous techniques, Analysis of Neural Data provides a unified treatment of analytical methods that have become essential for contemporary researchers. Throughout the book ideas are illustrated with more than 100 examples drawn from the literature, ranging from electrophysiology, to neuroimaging, to behavior. By demonstrating the commonality among various statistical approaches the authors provide the crucial tools for gaining knowledge from diverse types of data. Aimed at experimentalists with only high-school level mathematics, as well as computationally-oriented neuroscientists who have limited familiarity with statistics, Analysis of Neural Data serves as both a self-contained introduction and a reference work
Case Studies in Bayesian Statistics : Volume IV by Constantine Gatsonis( )

3 editions published between 1997 and 2002 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While most of the case studies in this volume come from biomedical research, the reader will also find studies in environmental science and marketing research. The 4th Workshop on Case Studies in Bayesian Statistics was held at Carnegie-Mellon University September 27-28, 1997. As in the past, the workshop featured both invited and contributed case studies. The former were presented in detail while the latter were presented in poster format. This volume contains the four invited case studies with the accompanying discussion as well as nine contributed papers selected by a refereeing process
Case Studies in Bayesian Statistics, Volume II by Constantine Gatsonis( )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Like its predecessor, this second volume presents detailed applications of Bayesian statistical analysis, each of which emphasizes the scientific context of the problems it attempts to solve. The emphasis of this volume is on biomedical applications. These papers were presented at a workshop at Carnegie-Mellon University in 1993
Case Studies in Bayesian Statistics by Constantine Gatsonis( )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The past few years have witnessed dramatic advances in computational methods for Bayesian inference. As a result, Bayesian approaches to solving a wide variety of problems in data analysis and decision-making have become feasible. The purpose of this volume is to present several detailed examples of applications of Bayesian methods. The emphasis of each article is on the scientific or technological context of the problem being solved, and much background material is provided to complete the description of the analysis. This collection illustrates the ways in which Bayesian methods are permeating statistical practice. Noteworthy in the articles are the construction of explicit and conceptually simple models, the use of information other than the data under analysis, and the representation of uncertainty from various sources in the model. Consequently, many researchers will find this collection an illuminating survey of Bayesian methods in practice, and both lecturers and students will be able to learn a great deal through study of these examples

The Bible code : predicting Armageddon( Visual )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From earliest times, people have attempted to predict the future, and some believe there is a Bible code that holds hidden messages about events in the past and in the future. Experts discuss attempts through history to unlock a Bible code, how the alleged code works, and what it suggests for the future

Berwikunken--Simonsky 1995 family reunion, Detroit/Southfield, Michigan : "from generation to generation", Manson, Blucher, Perstein, Lewis, Karlins, Walicki, Salman, Berwikunken, Shundrovsky, Pomerantz by Marc Manson( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elchonnen Yasoff Berwikunkin (1790-1840) and his wife, Gneshe (Jennie) Fagel (1794-1838) were married at Grodna, a city in Poland, ca. 1815. They had four children. Their daughter, Esther Leah Berwikunkin (1830-1915) married Velvel Simonsky (1828-1882). They had six daughters. The family lived at Slonim, Poland. Sometime before 1894, the oldest three daughters and their husbands immigrated to the United States. Fage Rachel and Jacob Manson settled in New York and then Detroit. Rivke and H. Blucher settled in upper Michigan; and Mihele and Z. Perstein settled in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. Esther Simonsky and her daughters Sarah and Mary immigrated to the United States and arrived in Chippewa Falls in 1894. There Sarah married Juliu Lewis and Mary married Nathan Karlins. Chenya Simonsky married S. Walicki and remained in Poland. Most of her descendants were killed in the holocaust, those surviving, immigrated to Israel. Record gives names and localities of some descendants, but gives no dates. Descendants listed live in Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, California, Washington, New Jersey, New York and elsewhere
Rules for the implicit acqyisition [i.e. acquisition] of knowledge about the user by Robert E Kass( Book )

2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Case studies in Bayesian statistics( )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The series of workshops at Carnegie Mellon University is unique in devoting an entire meeting to extended presentations and discussion of scientific investigations in which statisticians play central roles within integrated, cross-disciplinary teams. The goal has been to elucidate the interplay between Bayesian theory and practice, and thereby identify successful methods and indicate important directions for future research."

Coverage Adjusted Entropy Estimation( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Data on "neural coding" have frequently been analyzed using information-theoretic measures. These formulations involve the fundamental, and generally difficult statistical problem of estimating entropy. We review briefly several methods that have been advanced to estimate entropy, and highlight a method, the coverage adjusted entropy estimator (CAE), due to Chao and Shen that appeared recently in the environmental statistics literature. This method begins with the elementary Horvitz-Thompson estimator, developed for sampling from a finite population and adjusts for the potential new species that have not yet been observed in the sample - these become the new patterns or "words" in a spike train that have not yet been observed. The adjustment is due to I.J. Good, and is called the Good-Turing coverage estimate. We provide a new empirical regularization derivation of the coverage-adjusted probability estimator, which shrinks the MLE. We prove that the CAE is consistent and first-order optimal, with rate O(sub-p)[1/ log n], in the class of distributions with finite entropy variance and that within the class of distributions with finite qth moment of the log-likelihood, the Good-Turing coverage estimate and the total probability of unobserved words converge at rate O(sub-p)[1/(log n)exp q]. We then provide a simulation study of the estimator with standard distributions and examples from neuronal data, where observations are dependent. The results show that, with a minor modification, the CAE performs much better than the MLE and is better than the Best Upper Bound estimator, due to Paninski, when the number of possible words m is unknown or infinite
