Survival Analysis With Coarsely Observed Covariates
, 2002
"... In this paper we consider analysis of survival data with incomplete covariate information. We model the incomplete covariates as a random coarsening of the complete covariate, and an overview of the theory of coarsening at random is given. Various ways of estimating the parameters of the model f ..."

Mixtures of Factor Analysers with Fixed Observed Covariates
"... We present an extension of the Mixture of Factor Analysers model that investigates the eect of xed observed covariates on both the continuous latent variable (common factor) and the discrete categorical latent variable (component label). The extended model allows us to study, not just the relationsh ..."

Different Nonlinear Regression Models with Incorrectly Observed Covariates
, 1998
"... We present quasilikelihood models for different regression problems when one of the explanatory variables is measured with heteroscedastic error. In order to derive models for the observed data the conditional mean and variance functions of the regression models are only expressed through functions ..."

Quantile Regression
 JOURNAL OF ECONOMIC PERSPECTIVES—VOLUME 15, NUMBER 4—FALL 2001—PAGES 143–156
, 2001
"... We say that a student scores at the fifth quantile of a standardized exam if he performs better than the proportion � of the reference group of students and worse than the proportion (1–�). Thus, half of students perform better than the median student and half perform worse. Similarly, the quartiles ..."

as introduced by Koenker and Bassett (1978) seeks to extend these ideas to the estimation of conditional quantile functions—models in which quantiles of the conditional distribution of the response variable are expressed as functions of observed covariates. In Figure 1, we illustrate one approach to this task
High dimensional graphs and variable selection with the Lasso
 ANNALS OF STATISTICS
, 2006
"... The pattern of zero entries in the inverse covariance matrix of a multivariate normal distribution corresponds to conditional independence restrictions between variables. Covariance selection aims at estimating those structural zeros from data. We show that neighborhood selection with the Lasso is a ..."

Sequential data assimilation with a nonlinear quasigeostrophic model using Monte Carlo methods to forecast error statistics
 J. Geophys. Res
, 1994
"... . A new sequential data assimilation method is discussed. It is based on forecasting the error statistics using Monte Carlo methods, a better alternative than solving the traditional and computationally extremely demanding approximate error covariance equation used in the extended Kalman filter. The ..."

Nonparametric estimation of average treatment effects under exogeneity: a review
 REVIEW OF ECONOMICS AND STATISTICS
, 2004
"... Recently there has been a surge in econometric work focusing on estimating average treatment effects under various sets of assumptions. One strand of this literature has developed methods for estimating average treatment effects for a binary treatment under assumptions variously described as exogen ..."

The implication of these assumptions is that systematic (for example, average or distributional) differences in outcomes between treated and control units with the same values for the covariates are attributable to the treatment. Recent analysis has
A gentle tutorial on the EM algorithm and its application to parameter estimation for gaussian mixture and hidden markov models
, 1997
"... We describe the maximumlikelihood parameter estimation problem and how the Expectationform of the EM algorithm as it is often given in the literature. We then develop the EM parameter estimation procedure for two applications: 1) finding the parameters of a mixture of Gaussian densities, and 2) fi ..."

We derive the update equations in fairly explicit detail but we do not prove any convergence properties. We try to emphasize intuition rather than mathematical
A New Extension of the Kalman Filter to Nonlinear Systems
, 1997
"... The Kalman filter(KF) is one of the most widely used methods for tracking and estimation due to its simplicity, optimality, tractability and robustness. However, the application of the KF to nonlinear systems can be difficult. The most common approach is to use the Extended Kalman Filter (EKF) which ..."
