On the Adaptation of Arbitrary Normal Mutation Distributions in Evolution Strategies: The Generating Set Adaptation
, 1995
"... A new adaptation scheme for adapting arbitrary normal mutation distributions in evolution strategies is introduced. It can adapt correct scaling and correlations between object parameters. Furthermore, it is independent of any rotation of the objective function and reliably adapts mutation dis ..."

Completely Derandomized SelfAdaptation in Evolution Strategies
 Evolutionary Computation
, 2001
"... This paper puts forward two useful methods for selfadaptation of the mutation distribution  the concepts of derandomization and cumulation. Principle shortcomings of the concept of mutative strategy parameter control and two levels of derandomization are reviewed. Basic demands on the selfadapta ..."

adaptation of arbitrary (normal) mutation distributions are developed. Applying arbitrary, normal mutation distributions is equivalent to applying a general, linear problem encoding.
An Evolution Strategy with Coordinate System Invariant Adaptation of Arbitrary Normal Mutation Distributions Within the Concept of Mutative Strategy Parameter Control
 PROCEEDINGS OF THE GENETIC AND EVOLUTIONARY COMPUTATION CONFERENCE, GECCO99
, 1999
"... A selfadaptation of arbitrary normal mutation distributions within the concept of mutative strategy parameter control (MSC) using a newly formulated mutation operator is introduced. The coordinate system independent formulation ensures the invariance of the algorithm towards arbitrary linear ..."

Normalization for cDNA microarray data: a robust composite method addressing single and multiple slide systematic variation
, 2002
"... There are many sources of systematic variation in cDNA microarray experiments which affect the measured gene expression levels (e.g. differences in labeling efficiency between the two fluorescent dyes). The term normalization refers to the process of removing such variation. A constant adjustment is ..."

is often used to force the distribution of the intensity log ratios to have a median of zero for each slide. However, such global normalization approaches are not adequate in situations where dye biases can depend on spot overall intensity and/or spatial location within the array. This article proposes
An analysis of transformations
 Journal of the Royal Statistical Society. Series B (Methodological
, 1964
"... In the analysis of data it is often assumed that observations y,, y,,...,y, are independently normally distributed with constant variance and with expectations specified by a model linear in a set of parameters 0. In this paper we make the less restrictive assumption that such a normal, homoscedasti ..."

Evaluating the Accuracy of SamplingBased Approaches to the Calculation of Posterior Moments
 IN BAYESIAN STATISTICS
, 1992
"... Data augmentation and Gibbs sampling are two closely related, samplingbased approaches to the calculation of posterior moments. The fact that each produces a sample whose constituents are neither independent nor identically distributed complicates the assessment of convergence and numerical accurac ..."

Consistency of spectral clustering
, 2004
"... Consistency is a key property of statistical algorithms, when the data is drawn from some underlying probability distribution. Surprisingly, despite decades of work, little is known about consistency of most clustering algorithms. In this paper we investigate consistency of a popular family of spe ..."

A model for technical inefficiency effects in a stochastic frontier production function for panel data
 Empirical Economics
, 1995
"... Abstract: A stochastic frontier production function is defined for panel data on firms, in which the nonnegative technical inetGciency effects are assumed to be a function of firmspecific variables and time. The inefficiency effects are assumed to be independently distributed as truncations of nor ..."

This panel data model is an extension of recently proposed models for inefTiciency effects in stochastic frontiers for crosssectional data. An empirical application of the model is obtained
Modeling and Forecasting Realized Volatility

"... this paper is built. First, although raw returns are clearly leptokurtic, returns standardized by realized volatilities are approximately Gaussian. Second, although the distributions of realized volatilities are clearly rightskewed, the distributions of the logarithms of realized volatilities are a ..."

Furthermore, we show that, given the theoretically motivated and empirically plausible assumption of normally distributed returns conditional on the realized volatilities, the resulting lognormalnormal mixture
