survival model with weibull sojourn time in R

I aims to develop multi state survival model in R with the transition time between any two states follows Weibull distribution. However, based on the documentation and as shown in the picture below, I ...

Is it possible to calculate the scale param θ for the Gamma distribution, given shape param K and a quantile value Q?

Stats-ophils, I am running into a problem, in which I'd like to generate a Gamma distribution (in Julia) and I know the value of the quantile Q(0.9) = 130 as well as the shape parameter k=2. Is it ...

How can Pareto(alpha = 5, x_min = 2) be heavy-tailed where alpha is the shape parameter or the tail index?

Point 1 : It's known that, usually, when the tail-index (alpha) is between 0 and 2, of a certain data set, the distribution is considered as heavy-tailed. Point 2 : It's know that Pareto ...

Probability distribution over shapes (or: How to parameterize arbitrary polygons)

Has there been work on modeling variations of a 2D shape? E.g., say you want a distribution over 5-sided polygons, or over ellipses, or curved shapes? For simple shapes, like circles, rectangles, ...

Satellite data pre-processing for Keras CNNs [closed]

I’m looking at satellite data and want to do object detection using CNNs in Keras. I’m currently pre-processing the data (turning them into tensors) that I’ve obtained which include the original ...

Statistical test for data where groups have non-normal distributions with varying distribution shapes

I have between-subject design with 3 different groups where I capture interval data (on scale 1-4 where equal spacing amongst scores can be assumed). The data in groups is not normally distributed ...

Are 1-dimensional numpy arrays equivalent to vectors? [closed]

I'm new to both linear algebra and numpy, so please bear with me. I'm taking a course on linear regression, where I learned that we can express our hypothesis as $\theta^TX$ where $\theta$ is our ...

R dataframe: Multiple repeated measured variables of different time lengths

Not sure if this is the best place for this type of question, but I'll just try! I have a semi-large dataset with multiple measures from one study I ran. Some of them are repeated measures over ...

How to compare shape of gamma distributions to detect population change

Sorry if this question is poorly composed due to lack of stats knowledge. Any advice to point me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated: I'm hoping to detect if a dataset originated from ...

Is Tensorflow shape just for convenience?

It's pretty neat that Tensorflow allows you to define and do math on arbitrary tensors, but for supervised learning applications, is there any reason you would want to define your inputs and outputs ...

What is the name for the distribution shape of a histogram with this kind of curvature?

I have a histogram of points with a dip in the center of the bell, seeming to create two bells, or two clusters. What is the name for this kind of shaped distribution? This curve should be normal but ...

Testing data for Same Shape

I want to run a Mann-Whitney test on 2 arbitrary sets of data but I read that one of the assumptions of the Mann-Whitney test is that the data is the same shape. How can I test if the 2 sets of data ...

Cluster analysis without knowing the structure of the data set

I’m working on a task regarding cluster analysis for about half a year now, but since the fields of pattern recognition and cluster analysis are quite complex ones, I would call myself a beginner in ...
(with apologizes to this question). Consider two distributions $G$, $F$ both uni-modal and absolutely continuous, square integrable and satisfying: $$F<_c G$$ this means that the standardized ...
