## Will Mu Go Out With Median

May 28, 2013
By

True story (no really, this did actually happen).  While in grad school one of the other teaching assistants was approached by one of the students and was asked “will mu go out with median?”  The teaching assistant thought the play on words was pretty funny, laughed, and then cluelessly walked away.  All of us other grad students

## Interactive presentation with slidify and googleVis

May 28, 2013

Last week I was invited to give an introduction to googleVis at Lancaster University. This time I decided to use the R package slidify for my talk. Slidify, like knitr, is built on Markdown and makes it very easy to create beautiful HTML5 presentations...

## (Another) introduction to R

It’s Memorial Day and my dissertation defense is tomorrow. This week I’m phoning in my blog. I had the opportunity to teach a short course last week that was part of a larger workshop focused on ecosystem restoration. A fellow grad student and I taught a session on Excel and R for basic data analysis.

$Creating a typical textbook illustration of statistical power using either ggplot or base graphics$

A common way of illustrating the idea behind statistical power in null hypothesis significance testing, is by plotting the sampling distributions of the null hypothesis and the alternative hypothesis. Typically, these illustrations highlight the regions that correspond to making a type II error, type I error and correctly rejecting the null hypothesis (i.e. the test's power). In this post...

## Veterinary Epidemiologic Research: Modelling Survival Data – Non-Parametric Analyses

May 23, 2013
By

Next topic from Veterinary Epidemiologic Research: chapter 19, modelling survival data. We start with non-parametric analyses where we make no assumptions about either the distribution of survival times or the functional form of the relationship between a predictor and survival. There are 3 non-parametric methods to describe time-to-event data: actuarial life tables, Kaplan-Meier method, and

## Generating a Markov chain vs. computing the transition matrix

$h\times h$

A couple of days ago, we had a quick chat on Karl Broman‘s blog, about snakes and ladders (see http://kbroman.wordpress.com/…) with Karl and Corey (see http://bayesianbiologist.com/….), and the use of Markov Chain. I do believe that this application is truly awesome: the example is understandable by anyone, and computations (almost any kind, from what we’ve tried) are easy to perform....

## When Does the Kinetic Theory of Gases Fail? Examining its Postulates with Assistance from Simple Linear Regression in R

$When Does the Kinetic Theory of Gases Fail? Examining its Postulates with Assistance from Simple Linear Regression in R$

Introduction The Ideal Gas Law, , is a very simple yet useful relationship that describes the behaviours of many gases pretty well in many situations.  It is “Ideal” because it makes some assumptions about gas particles that make the math and the physics easy to work with; in fact, the simplicity that arises from these

## Playing cards in Vegas?

By

In a previous post, a few weeks ago, I mentioned that I will be in Las Vegas by the end of July. And I took the opportunity to write a post on roulette(s). Since some colleagues told me I should take some time to play poker there, I guess I have to understand how to play poker… so I...
