21. Five Examples of Assessment and Expression of Measurement Uncertainty
Topic: Statistics
Published: 2/12/2013
Author: Antonio M Possolo
Abstract: It is a long accepted tenet of scientific practice that every measurement result ought to include a statement of uncertainty associated with the measured value, and that such uncertainty should be propagated to derivative products. It is also widely ...

22. Prediction-Based Model Selection For Bayesian Multiple Regression Models
Topic: Statistics
Published: 2/5/2013
Author: Adam L Pintar
Abstract: Model selection is an important part of model building for Bayesian linear models when the number of possible model terms is large. Most current approaches focus on posterior model probabilities or the deviance information criterion. This article pro ...

23. Assessing Conformity of Two Laboratories: Formulations as a Statistical Hypothesis Testing Problem
Topic: Statistics
Published: 1/9/2013
Author: Andrew L Rukhin
Abstract: A decision problem frequently occurring in metrology is that of compatibility of data obtained by two (or several) different laboratories, methods or instruments. Several statistical approaches to this conformity assessment problem are reviewed inclu ...

24. Two SVDs Suffice: Spectral decompositions for probabilistic topic modeling and latent Dirichlet allocation
Topic: Statistics
Published: 12/6/2012
Authors: Yi-Kai Liu, Animashree Anandkumar, Dean P. Foster, Daniel Hsu, Sham M. Kakade
Abstract: The problem of topic modeling can be seen as a generalization of the clustering problem, in that it posits that observations are generated due to multiple latent factors (e.g. the words in each document are generated as a mixture of several activ ...

25. Statistical Analysis of Reader Measurement Variability in Nodule Sizing with CT Phantom Imaging Data
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7879
Topic: Statistics
Published: 11/23/2012
Authors: John Lu, Charles D. Fenimore, Nicholas Petrick, Rongping Zeng, Marios A Gavrielides, David Clunie, Kristin Borradaile, Robert Ford, Hyun J. Grace Kim, Michael McNitt-Gray, Binsheng Zhao, Andrew Buckler
Abstract: RSNA has conducted a phantom quantitative imaging biomarker (QIBA) study to assess reader measurement variability of both spherical and non-spherical nodules using CT imaging. Statistical analysis of intra-reader and inter-reader variability of v ...

26. Fast Sequential Importance Sampling fo Estimate the Graph Reliability Polynomial
Topic: Statistics
Published: 11/5/2012
Authors: David G. Harris, Francis Sullivan, Isabel M Beichl
Abstract: The reliability polynomial of a graph measures the number of its connected subgraphs of various sizes. Algortihms based on sequential importance sampling (SIS) have been proposed to estimate a graph's reliahbility polynomial. We develop an improved ...

27. An Empirical Bayes Approach to Robust Variance Estimation: A Statistical Proposal for Quantitative Medical Image Testing
Topic: Statistics
Published: 10/23/2012
Authors: John Lu, Charles D. Fenimore
Abstract: The current standard for measuring tumor response using X-ray, CT and MRI is based on the response evaluation crite- rion in solid tumors (RECIST) which, while providing simplifications over previous (WHO) 2-D methods, stipulate four response categor ...

28. Detecting differential expression in RNA-sequence data using quasi-likelihood with shrunken dispersion estimates
Topic: Statistics
Published: 10/12/2012
Author: Steven P Lund
Abstract: Next generation sequencing technology provides a powerful tool for measuring gene expression (mRNA) levels in the form of RNA-sequence data. Method development for identifying differentially expressed (DE) genes from RNA-seq data, which frequently in ...

29. A Bayesian Approach to the Analysis of Split-Plot Product Arrays and Optimization in Robust Parameter Design
Topic: Statistics
Published: 10/4/2012
Author: Adam L Pintar
Abstract: Many robust parameter design (RPD) studies involve a split-plot randomization structure and to obtain valid inferences in the analysis, it is essential to account for the design induced correlation structure. Bayesian methods are appealing for these ...

30. Bayesian Estimation of Reliability for Batches of High Reliability Single Use Parts
Topic: Statistics
Published: 9/24/2012
Author: Adam L Pintar
Abstract: When batches of critical, very high reliability single use parts are being produced, rigorous testing is often required to qualify the parts and allow them to be used by the customer. Frequentist and Bayesian approaches are described for predicting ...
