  • Houseman, E.; Ryan, Louise; Levy, Jonathan; Spengler, John (Taylor & Francis Inc, 2002)
    Interpretation of continuous measurements in microenvironmental studies and exposure assessments can be complicated by autocorrelation, the implications of which are often not fully addressed. We discuss some statistical ...
  • Delli Gatti, Domenico; Di Guilmi, Corrado; Gaffeo, Edoardo; Gallegati, Mauro (Elsevier Science BV, 2004)
    Dynamical systems with components whose sizes evolve according to multiplicative stochastic rules have been recently combined with entry and exit processes. We show that the assumptions usually made in modeling exits are ...
  • Green, Peter; Mardia, Kanti (Oxford Univ Press, 2006)
    An important problem in shape analysis is to match configurations of points in space after filtering out some geometrical transformation. In this paper we introduce hierarchical models for such tasks, in which the points ...
  • Crainiceanu, Ciprian; Ruppert, David; Wand, Matthew (American Statistical Association, 2005)
    Penalized splines can be viewed as BLUPs in a mixed model framework, which allows the use of mixed model software for smoothing. Thus, software originally developed for Bayesian analysis of mixed models can be used for ...
  • Chan, Jennifer; Choy, Sai Tsang Boris; Lee, A (John Wiley & Sons,Ltd, 2007)
    This paper focuses on the estimation of some models in finance and in particular, in interest rates. We analyse discretized versions of the constant elasticity of variance (CEV) models where the normal law showing up in ...
  • Mezzetti, M; Ibrahim, Joseph; Bois, Frederic; Ryan, Louise; Ngo, L; Smith, Thomas (Blackwell Publ Ltd, 2003)
    We propose a Bayesian model for physiologically based pharmacokinetics of 1,3-butadiene (BD). BD is classified as a suspected human carcinogen and exposure to it is common, especially through cigarette smoke as well as in ...
  • Geweke, John; Tanizaki, Hisashi (Elsevier, 2001)
    Abstract: In this paper, an attempt is made to show a general solution to nonlinear and/or non-Gaussian state-space modeling in a Bayesian framework, which corresponds to an extension of Carlin et al. (J. Amer. Statist. ...
  • Hurn, M; Green, Peter; Al-Awadhi, F (Blackwell Publishing, 2008)
    The Sloan digital sky survey is an extremely large astronomical survey that is conducted with the intention of mapping more than a quarter of the sky. Among the data that it is generating are spectroscopic and photometric ...
  • Coull, Brent; Mezzetti, Maura; Ryan, Louise (Springer, 2003)
    This article uses a Bayesian hierarchical model to quantify the adverse health effects associated with in-utero exposure to methylmercury. By allowing for study-to-study as well as outcome-to-outcome variability, the ...
  • Morales, Knashawn; Ibrahim, Joseph; Chen, Chien-Jen; Ryan, Louise (American Statistical Association, 2006)
    An important component of quantitative risk assessment involves characterizing the dose-response relationship between an environmental exposure and adverse health outcome and then computing a benchmark dose, or the exposure ...
  • Lau, Jw; Green, Peter (Amer Statistical Assoc, 2006)
    This paper establishes a general framework for Bayesian model-based clustering, in which subset labels are exchangeable, and items are also exchangeable, possibly up to covariate e?ects. It is rich enough to encompass a ...
  • Gerlach, Richard; Bird, Ronald; Hall, Anthony (Blackwell Publishers, 2002)
  • Platen, Eckhard (Blackwell Publishing, 2006)
    This paper derives a unified framework for portfolio optimization, derivative pricing, financial modeling, and risk measurement. It is based on the natural assumption that investors prefer more rather than less, in the ...
  • Morales, Knashawn; Ryan, Louise (John Wiley & Sons, Ltd., 2005)
    Risk assessments based on epidemiologic studies are becoming increasingly common in evaluating environmental health risks and setting health standards. This article will discuss and compare some of the available methods ...
  • Hein, Anne-Mette; Richardson, Sylvia; Causton, Helen; Ambler, Graeme; Green, Peter (Oxford Univ Press, 2005)
    We present Bayesian hierarchical models for the analysis of Affymetrix GeneChip data. The approach we take differs from other available approaches in two fundamental aspects. Firstly, we aim to integrate all processing ...
  • Alomari, Majdi; Zhu, Jianguo (Elsevier Science Bv, 2011)
    This paper presents the use of Thyristor-Controlled Series Capacitor (TCSC) to control bifurcations of subsynchronous resonance (SSR) in multimachine power system. The modified second system of the IEEE second benchmark ...
  • Catalano, Paul; Ryan, Louise (American Statistical Association, 1992)
    We use the concept of a latent variable to derive the joint distribution of a continuous and a discrete outcome, and then extend the model to allow for clustered data. The model Can be parameterized in a way that allows ...
  • Lohstroh, Pete; Chen, Jiangang; Ba, Jianming; Ryan, Louise; Xu, Xiping; Overstreet, James; Lasley, Bill (Us Dept Health Human Sciences Public Health Science, 2003)
    Stressors as subtle as night work or shift work can lead to irregular menstrual cycles, and changes in reproductive hormone profiles can adversely affect bone health. This study was conducted to determine if stresses ...
  • Celedon, Juan; Litonjua, Augusto; Ryan, Louise; Weiss, Scott; Gold, Diane (American Academy of Pediatrics, 2002)
    Objective. Bottle feeding in the bed or crib before sleep time has been associated with an increased risk of wheezing in the first year of life. We examined whether bottle feeding in the bed or crib before sleep time in ...
  • Delli Gatti, Domenico; Di Guilmi, Corrado; Gaffeo, Edoardo; Gallegati, Mauro; Giulioni, Gianfranco; Palestrini, Antonio (World Scientific, 2004)
    Power law behavior is an emerging property of many economic models. In this paper we emphasize the fact that power law distributions are persistent but not time invariant. In fact, the scale and shape of the firms' size ...
