### How does a Relevance Vector Machine (RVM) work?

Relevance Vector Machines (RVMs) are really interesting models when contrasted with the highly geometrical (and popular) SVMs. In the light of a question like How does a Support Vector Machine (SVM) ...

### Bootstrapping Generalized Least Squares

Scenario: Consider the use of bootstrapping to estimate the distribution of model parameters fitted per a linear or nonlinear generalized least squares model. In particular, assume there is a ...

### Blind source separation of convex mixture?

Suppose I have $n$ independent sources, $X_1, X_2, ..., X_n$ and I observe $m$ convex mixtures: \begin{align} Y_1 &= a_{11}X_1 + a_{12}X_2 + \cdots + a_{1n}X_n\\ ...&\\ Y_m &= a_{m1}X_1 + ...

### Distribution of inverse Wishart to a power?

In a related question, I had asked about the norm induced by an inverse Wishart matrix. I am interested in generalizing that result somewhat. Let $A\sim\mathcal{W}_p\left(I,n\right)$, a Wishart matrix ...

### What is Shannon's source entropy?

Suppose that ${X_n; Y_n}$ is a random process with a discrete alphabet, that is, taking on values in a discrete set for $n$ data length. They correspond to the input and output of a communication ...

### How can I measure model performance with weighted logistic regression?

I am working with some survey data that uses probability weights. A number of sources explain that likelihood-based tests and fit statistics like likelihood-ratio, AIC, and BIC are not valid in the ...

### Testing for a significant difference between ML estimates: Likelihood ratio or Wald test?

I am trying to test whether or not there is a significant difference between maximum likelihood estimates of two genetic parameters (selection and dominance) across two environments with genotype data ...

### Are non-square latin hypercubes viable?

At https://github.com/OpenMDAO/OpenMDAO-Framework/issues/599 it is stated that non-square Latin Hypercube experimental design is not well defined (I assume that for higher dimensions that means ...

### Why is Binning, Weight of Evidence and Information Value so ubiquitous in the Credit Risk/Finance industry?

In the credit risk industry (and finance industry as a whole, at least here in the UK), there is a very common and accepted 'proper' way to build scorecards. The general framework seems to be: ...

### Convolutional neural network for multi-variate time series?

I want to use CNN architectures for classification of multivariate time-series, where we apply one label to each sequence. I searched the net for the available designs in the literature and i found ...

### What is tantile regression?

My question follows on this discussion of medials and tantiles vs medians and quantiles from earlier this year: When would we use tantiles and the medial, rather than quantiles and the median? As ...

### How to compare forecasting methods?

I have several intermittent data. Based on those data, I would like to compare several forecasting methods (Exponential Smoothing, Moving Average, Croston, and Syntetos-Boylan), and decide whether ...

### What approaches use multiple eigenvectors in graph spectral clustering?

Background: In Newman's PNAS 2006 paper Modularity and community structure in networks, the first eigenvector splits the graph in two clusters, and then each cluster can be further divided by ...
