### What is the calculation behind norm.dist function in Excel?

For example, I will enter in norm.dist(89,100,50,0) for x, mean,sd, cumulative or no. Do I use the pdf of normal distribution and integrate? Any help would be appreciated and please also explain isn't ...

### nested random effect - Can I nest continuous (time) and categorical variable (condition)?

Apologies for another stupid question within such a short period of time. I am struggling to include "Time" (continuous variable) in my model where I test the effects of 3 "Periods" (conditions) in a ...

### Issues with switching between discrete and continuous time in a linear mixed model

I'm confused why switching from discrete time to continuous time is not more of an issue. While talking about animal survival data from day 1, day 2, & day 3 in an exposure experiment, the ...

### Is there a way to calculate the riskiest places to be infected by COVID-19?

Is there a way to calculate the riskiest places to be infected by COVID-19? My friends and I are having an argument of whether being in a "high traffic-short contact time" situation (public transport) ...

### many datasets with multivariable continuous time series

I have many data-sets, each one have many variables (Time, X1, X2,..,Xn, Y) and Time variable is continuous [0-1]. the number of observation in each data-set is not equal and not synchronized in time: ...

### Modeling unequally spaced time series as OU process

I have a time series wherein the data points are unevenly spaced. I read this can be modeled as discrete time observation from a continuous time process. So I am trying to model it as an Ornstein-...

### Can the interarrival times of a continuous time markov chain be distributed with 2 parameter (scale,location) exponential distributions?

I'm trying to model data with a time-homogenous CTMC with a number of states with corresponding constant transition rates $\lambda_{i}$ when I notice that much of the transition times from one state ...

### Correspondence between time series models in continuous vs. discrete time

I am interested in an overview over the connection and correspondence between time series models in continuous vs. discrete time in finance. E.g. take ARMA(p,q) or GARCH(s,r) or ARMA(p,q)-GARCH(s,r) ...

### Generate PDF from CTMC

I have an irreducible continuous-time Markov chain (CTMC) with a finite state space. The CTMC also does not have any one-step transitions from any state to itself. I have the transition rate matrix $Q$...

### Modeling by means of a negative binomial process

The negative binomial distribution with parameters $p\in(0,1)$ and $t>0$ is sometimes defined as the distribution of the number of failures before the $t$th success. This is supported on the set \$\{...

### Derivation Harvey (1984) Logistic Curve

Given a logistic function of the form. \begin{align*} f(t) = \frac{\alpha}{1 + \beta e^{\gamma t}} \end{align*} Harvey (1984) differentiates this and takes logs to yield: \begin{align*} \ln f' = 2 ...
