R and Python: Gradient Descent

December 22, 2015 | Al-Ahmadgaid Asaad

One of the problems often dealt in Statistics is minimization of the objective function. And contrary to the linear models, there is no analytical solution for models that are nonlinear on the parameters such as logistic regression, neural networks, and nonlinear regression models (like Michaelis-Menten model). In this situation, we ... [Read more...]

R and Python: Theory of Linear Least Squares

December 15, 2015 | Al-Ahmadgaid Asaad

In my previous article, we talked about implementations of linear regression models in R, Python and SAS. On the theoretical sides, however, I briefly mentioned the estimation procedure for the parameter $boldsymbol{beta}$. So to help us understand how software does the estimation procedure, we'll look at the mathematics behind ...

Parametric Inference: Karlin-Rubin Theorem

July 20, 2015 | Al-Ahmadgaid Asaad

A family of pdfs or pmfs ${g(t|theta):thetainTheta}$ for a univariate random variable $T$ with real-valued parameter $theta$ has a monotone likelihood ratio (MLR) if, for every $theta_2__theta_1$, $g(t|theta_2)/g(t|theta_1)$ is a monotone (nonincreasing or nondecreasing) function of $t$ on ${t:g(t|...

Parametric Inference: Likelihood Ratio Test Problem 2

May 23, 2015 | Al-Ahmadgaid Asaad

More on Likelihood Ratio Test, the following problem is originally from Casella and Berger (2001), exercise 8.12.ProblemFor samples of size $n=1,4,16,64,100$ from a normal population with mean $mu$ and known variance $sigma^2$, plot the power function of the following LRTs (Likelihood Ratio Tests). Take $alpha = .05$. $H_0:muleq 0$ versus $H_1:mu__0$$H_0:...

Python and R: Basic Sampling Problem

April 16, 2015 | Al-Ahmadgaid Asaad

In this post, I would like to share a simple problem about sampling analysis. And I will demonstrate how to solve this using Python and R. The first two problems are originally from Sampling: Design and Analysis book by Sharon Lohr.ProblemsLet $N=6$ and $n=3$. For purposes of studying sampling ... [Read more...]

Principal Component Analysis on Imaging

December 25, 2014 | Al-Ahmadgaid Asaad

Ever wonder what's the mathematics behind face recognition on most gadgets like digital camera and smartphones? Well for most part it has something to do with statistics. One statistical tool that is capable of doing such feature is the Principal Component Analysis (PCA). In this post, however, we will not ... [Read more...]
