报告题目A new multivariate Laplace distribution based on the mixture of normal distributions (基于混合正态分布的一种新的多元拉普拉斯分布)

报告摘要: In this paper, we propose a new multivariate Laplace distribution from normal variance mixture models, called as Type II multivariate Laplace distribution. Unlike the multivariate Laplace distribution proposed by Eltoft (2006) that all components must have the same value for the mixing variate, the random components in the new distribution could have different value for its own mixing variate and are correlated only through the dependence structure of the normal random vector. Thus, it contains the multiplication of iid univariate Laplace distributions as a special case if the normal covariance matrix is diagonal. A tractable stochastic representation (SR) is used to derive the probability density function and other statistical properties. The maximum likelihood estimates of parameters via an ECM algorithm and the Bayesian methods are derived. Some simulation studies are conducted to evaluate the performance of the proposed methods. Applications in two real data sets indicate that the Type II multivariate Laplace distribution could have a better performance and is distinct from the original one.

报告题目Proportional inverse Gaussian distribution: A new tool for analyzing continuous proportional data (比例逆高斯分布: 一个分析连续比例数据的新工具)

报告摘要: Outcomes in the form of rates, fractions, proportions and percentages often appear in various fields. Existing beta and simplex distributions are frequently unable to exhibit satisfactory performances in fitting such continuous data. This paper aims to develop the normalized inverse Gaussian (N-IG) distribution proposed by Lijoi et al. (2005) as a new tool for analyzing continuous proportional data in (0, 1) and renames the N-IG as proportional inverse Gaussian (PIG) distribution. Our main contributions include: (1) To overcome the difficulty of an integral in the PIG density function, we propose a novel minorization-maximization (MM) algorithm via the continuous version of Jensen's inequality to calculate the maximum likelihood estimates of the parameters in the PIG distribution; (2) We also develop an MM algorithm aided by the gradient descent algorithm for the PIG regression model, which allows us to explore the relationship between a set of covariates with the mean parameter; (3) Both the robustness researches and the real data analyses show that the PIG distribution has the best robustness performance when comparing with the beta and simplex distributions in terms of the AIC, BIC and the p-value of the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test. In addition, bootstrap confidence intervals and testing hypothesis on symmetry of the PIG density are also presented. Simulation studies are conducted and the hospital stay data of Barcelona in 1988 and 1990 are analyzed to illustrate the proposed methods.

报告题目:海内外升硕、升博面试及国内工作面试中的某些统计问题、数知识题和其它问题

报告摘要:在国内硕士推免与直博推免中,硕士国考后的复试中,博士招生的面试中,海外升硕升博及联合培养的远程面试中,面试总经理将会提出各种各样的统计问题、数知识题、优化问题和其它问题,以考核申请者所掌握的统计与数学之基础常识和专业常识是否牢固,常识面是否宽广,语言表达是否流畅,逻辑思维是否清晰,反应能力是否敏捷,外文水平是否足够。如果平时学习不够扎实(或者尽管平时学习成绩很好但面试准备不够充分),申请者的回答经常会令面试总经理大失所望,进而影响主观打分并最终影响是否录取。本编辑根据十多年以来,作为面试总经理所获得的经验,归纳整理了几十个问题及相应的答案,希翼对同学们和申请者在面试中有所帮助。
