Top-tier customers -that is, those 20% of customers that typically bring in 80% of all profits- are extremely valuable to companies. In the many instances ...

Using random effects in the modeling of homogeneous Poisson processes (HPP) has proved effective (Cook and Lawless (2007) and Gongjun et al. (2015)). We (Kh...

Inferences about the prevalence of a given disease or condition can be drawn from results of a diagnostic test applied to a sample from the target population...

In biomedical research there is a growing interest in the use of hierarchical Poisson regression models. Although sample size calculations for testing pa...

BibTeX reference

Wavelets have been successfully used for nonparametric function estimation, but a major challenge in density and hazard estimation is that the function must ...

Our main interest is the prediction of future events for recurrent event processes. We intend to build a Bayesian model, based on sound philosophical princip...

Although sample size calculations for testing a parameter in the Poisson regression model have been previously done, very little attention has been given to ...

In this study, we compare various computational approaches to Bayesian small area estimation of proportions in logistic regression models. The basic idea con...

BibTeX reference

A challenge in many applications of non-parametric curve estimation is that the function must satisfy some (lower and/or upper) variable order constraints (f...

One of the most important aspects of profiling health care providers or services is constructing a model that is flexible enough to allow for random variatio...

Here we study hierarchical Bayesian estimation of a monotone hazard rate for both complete and randomly right censored data. We propose two methods of comp...

We develop a nonparametric Bayesian functional estimation method, using monotone wavelet approximation, for hazard estimation from randomly right censored d...

The Cox proportional hazards model has become the model of choice to use in analyzing the effects of covariates on survival data. However, this assumption ha...

In this paper, we study the quasi-likelihood estimator of the drift parameter <img src="/cgi-bin/mimetex.cgi?\theta"> in the Ornstein-Uhlenbeck diffusion pr...

The authors study the application of the bootstrap to a class of estimators which converge at a nonstandard rate to a nonstandard asymptotic distribution. T...

This paper discusses a Bayesian functional estimation method, based on Fourier series, for the estimation of the hazard rate from randomly right-censored dat...

In this paper, we are concerned with the statistical methodology of epidemiological surveillance; that is, the ongoing procedure of analyzing and interpreti...

In this study, we present a unified Bayesian approach to small area estimation of mean parameters in generalized linear models. The basic idea consists of in...
