Panel Cointegration; Asymptotic and Finite Sample Properties of Pooled Time Series Tests, With an Application to the PPP Hypothesis; New Results. Working paper
, 1997
"... We examine properties of residualbased tests for the null of no cointegration for dynamic panels in which both the shortrun dynamics and the longrun slope coefficients are permitted to be heterogeneous across individual members of the panel+ The tests also allow for individual heterogeneous fixed ..."

fixed effects and trend terms, and we consider both pooled within dimension tests and group mean between dimension tests+ We derive limiting distributions for these and show that they are normal and free of nuisance parameters+ We also provide Monte Carlo evidence to demonstrate their small sample size
FiniteSample Analysis of LSTD
"... In this paper we consider the problem of policy evaluation in reinforcement learning, i.e., learning the value function of a fixed policy, using the leastsquares temporaldifference (LSTD) learning algorithm. We report a finitesample analysis of LSTD. We first derive a bound on the performance of ..."

Compressive sampling
, 2006
"... Conventional wisdom and common practice in acquisition and reconstruction of images from frequency data follow the basic principle of the Nyquist density sampling theory. This principle states that to reconstruct an image, the number of Fourier samples we need to acquire must match the desired res ..."

Cluster stability for finite samples
 Annals of Probability, 10(4):919 – 926
, 1982
"... Over the past few years, the notion of stability in data clustering has received growing attention as a cluster validation criterion in a samplebased framework. However, recent work has shown that as the sample size increases, any clustering model will usually become asymptotically stable. This led ..."

based cluster validation algorithms should not degrade with increasing sample size, despite the asymptotic universal stability. This prediction is substantiated by a theoretical analysis as well as some empirical results. We conclude that stability remains a meaningful cluster validation criterion over finite
Texture Synthesis by Nonparametric Sampling
 In International Conference on Computer Vision
, 1999
"... A nonparametric method for texture synthesis is proposed. The texture synthesis process grows a new image outward from an initial seed, one pixel at a time. A Markov random field model is assumed, and the conditional distribution of a pixel given all its neighbors synthesized so far is estimated by ..."

by querying the sample image and finding all similar neighborhoods. The degree of randomness is controlled by a single perceptually intuitive parameter. The method aims at preserving as much local structure as possible and produces good results for a wide variety of synthetic and realworld textures. 1
the FiniteSample Risk of Robust

"... Assume two absolutely continuous distributions F1, F2 on R with unbounded support. Step 1: Truncation Step 2: Discretization on a real grid ( → lattice distribution) Step 3: Transformation to an integer grid ( → integer latt. distr.) Mathematics VII ..."

Comparing Predictive Accuracy
 JOURNAL OF BUSINESS AND ECONOMIC STATISTICS, 13, 253265
, 1995
"... We propose and evaluate explicit tests of the null hypothesis of no difference in the accuracy of two competing forecasts. In contrast to previously developed tests, a wide variety of accuracy measures can be used (in particular, the loss function need not be quadratic, and need not even be symmetri ..."

SMOTE: Synthetic Minority Oversampling Technique
 Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research
, 2002
"... An approach to the construction of classifiers from imbalanced datasets is described. A dataset is imbalanced if the classification categories are not approximately equally represented. Often realworld data sets are predominately composed of ``normal'' examples with only a small percentag ..."

These methods are of particular interest in Bayesian filtering for discrete time dynamic models that are typically nonlinear and nonGaussian. A general importance sampling framework is develop ..."

Exact Sampling with Coupled Markov Chains and Applications to Statistical Mechanics

"... For many applications it is useful to sample from a finite set of objects in accordance with some particular distribution. One approach is to run an ergodic (i.e., irreducible aperiodic) Markov chain whose stationary distribution is the desired distribution on this set; after the Markov chain has ..."
