StatProb [wiki]

Via the support of Springer, probability and statistics societies are launching a specialised wiki called StatProb. It operates as a wiki in that authors can submit short articles on any topic, with further co-authors joining in later to improve those articles, but with the contents guaranteed via the filter of an editorial

I've released highlight 0.2-2 to CRAN. This release adds the possibility to control the font size of the latex code generated by sweave (when using the driver that is provided by highlight) For example, this C++ code (using Rcpp) will be highlight...

IMIS & AMIS

A most interesting paper by Adrian Raftery and Le Bao appeared in the Early View section of Biometrics.  It aims at better predictions for HIV prevalence—in the original UNAIDS implementation, a naïve SIR procedure was used, based on the prior as importance function, which sometimes resulted in terrible degeneracy—, but its methodological input is about

A free book on probability and statistics with R

July 29, 2010
By

G Jay Kerns has published a 400+ page introductory text on Probability and Statistics. All of the examples and illustrations are done using R (as Jay puts it, "The people at the party are Probability and Statistics; the handshake is R") so if you want to brush up on your probability and learn R at the same time, this...

Extension to an R Package: brew gets a weave

July 28, 2010
By

I’ve had enough of copy and pasting output from my R session into my email editor, blog, etc. I need something like Sweave for plain text files. In particular, I want the result of parsing <<echo=TRUE>>= f <- function(x) { x + 1 } f(1) @ with Sweave, but without the latex markup. For example,

Asher’s enigma

On his Probability and statistics blog, Matt Asher put a funny question (with my rephrasing): Take a unit square. Now pick two spots at random along the perimeter, uniformly. For each of these two locations, pick another random point from one of the three other sides of the square and draw the segment. What is

Building an R package (under Windows) without C, C++ or FORTRAN code

Why build and R package? It basically boils down to be able to brag at your local pub that a new version of YOUR package is on CRAN as of 7 p.m. CET. But seriously, if you’ve produced some function that other people might benefit (or have ordered them) from using them, like your boss,

Cherry Picking to Generalize ~ retrospective meta-power analysis using Cohen’s f^2 of NASA temp + visualization

Previously, I plotted a grid of NASA GISS global temps in ggplot2 to show general trends by the brute force method. Here, I will again use the brute force method to do a simple power analysis on a portion of the data (data here). The general aim is to figure out what the minimum sample

Multidimension bridge sampling (CoRe in CiRM [5])

Multidimension bridge sampling (CoRe in CiRM [5])

Since Bayes factor approximation is one of my areas of interest, I was intrigued by Xiao-Li Meng’s comments during my poster in Benidorm that I was using the “wrong” bridge sampling estimator when trying to bridge two models of different dimensions, based on the completion (for and missing from the first model) When revising the
