Comparison of Two New Robust Parameter Estimation Methods for the Power Function Distribution.

Estimation of any probability distribution parameters is vital because imprecise and biased estimates can be misleading. In this study, we investigate...

Two regression methods for estimation of a two-parameter Weibull distribution for reliability of dental materials.
Comparison of estimation of the two-parameter Weibull distribution by two least squares (LS) methods with interchanged axes. Investigation of the influence of plotting positions and sample size. Derivation of 95% confidence intervals (95%CI) for Weib

Robust power spectral estimation for EEG data.
Typical electroencephalogram (EEG) recordings often contain substantial artifact. These artifacts, often large and intermittent, can interfere with quantification of the EEG via its power spectrum. To reduce the impact of artifact, EEG records are ty

Joint Parameter Estimation for the Two-Wave with Diffuse Power Fading Model.
Wireless sensor networks deployed within metallic cavities are known to suffer from a very severe fading, even in strong line-of-sight propagation conditions. This behavior is well-captured by the Two-Wave with Diffuse Power (TWDP) fading distributio

A comparison of Monte Carlo-based Bayesian parameter estimation methods for stochastic models of genetic networks.
We compare three state-of-the-art Bayesian inference methods for the estimation of the unknown parameters in a stochastic model of a genetic network. In particular, we introduce a stochastic version of the paradigmatic synthetic multicellular clock m

An improved parameter estimation and comparison for soft tissue constitutive models containing an exponential function.
Motivated by the well-known result that stiffness of soft tissue is proportional to the stress, many of the constitutive laws for soft tissues contain an exponential function. In this work, we analyze properties of the exponential function and how it

Comparison of Parameter Estimation Methods in Stochastic Chemical Kinetic Models: Examples in Systems Biology.
Stochastic chemical kinetics has become a staple for mechanistically modeling various phenomena in systems biology. These models, even more so than their deterministic counterparts, pose a challenging problem in the estimation of kinetic parameters f

Saddlepoint Approximations of the Distribution of the Person Parameter in the Two Parameter Logistic Model.
Large sample theory states the asymptotic normality of the maximum likelihood estimator of the person parameter in the two parameter logistic (2PL) model. In short tests, however, the assumption of normality can be grossly wrong. As a consequence, in

A robust parameter estimation method for estimating disease burden of respiratory viruses.
Poisson model has been widely applied to estimate the disease burden of influenza, but there has been little success in providing reliable estimates for other respiratory viruses.

Robust seismicity forecasting based on Bayesian parameter estimation for epidemiological spatio-temporal aftershock clustering models.
In the immediate aftermath of a strong earthquake and in the presence of an ongoing aftershock sequence, scientific advisories in terms of seismicity forecasts play quite a crucial role in emergency decision-making and risk mitigation. Epidemic Type
