Bayesian nonlinear methods for survival analysis and structural equation models
(University of MissouriColumbia, 2014)High dimensional data are more common nowadays, because the collection of such data becomes larger and more complex due to the technology advance of the computer science, biology, etc. The analysis of high dimensional data ... 
Flexible Bayesian Hierarchical Models for DiscreteValued SpatioTemporal Data
(University of MissouriColumbia, 2014) 
The formal definition of reference priors under a general class of divergence
(University of MissouriColumbia, 2014)Bayesian analysis is widely used recently in both theory and application of statistics. The choice of priors plays a key role in any Bayesian analysis. There are two types of priors: subjective priors and objective priors. ... 
Optimal experimental design under a new multivariate Weibull regression function
(University of MissouriColumbia, 2014)In the manufacturing industry, it may be important to study the relationship between machine component failures under stress. Examples include failures such as integrated circuits and memory chips in electronic merchandise ... 
Semiparametric regression analysis of intervalcensored failure time data
(University of MissouriColumbia, 2014)By intervalcensored data, we mean that the failure time of interest is known only to lie within an interval instead of being observed exactly. Many clinical trials and longitudinal studies may generate intervalcensored ...
