Three years of ocean drifter data from the Chukchi Sea were examined using the wavelet transform to investigate inertial oscillation. There was an increasing trend in number, duration, and hence total proportion of time ...
It is known that the STAR and USTAR algorithms are statistically consistent techniques used to infer species tree topologies from a large set of gene trees. However, if the set of gene trees is small, the accuracy of STAR ...
We compare three models for their ability to perform binary spatial classification. A geospatial data set consisting of observations that are either permafrost or not is used for this comparison. All three use an underlying ...
GDP plays an important role in people's lives. For example, when GDP increases, the unemployment rate will frequently decrease. In this project, we will use four different Bayesian variable selection methods to verify ...
We consider a time-dependent spatial economic model for capital in which the region's production function is a parameter. This forward model predicts the distribution of capital of a region based on that region's production ...
This project describes a method for edge detection in images. We develop a Bayesian approach for edge detection, using a process convolution model. Our method has some advantages over the classical edge detector, Sobel ...
An Integrated Population Model (IPM) was employed to estimate the population size of the Fortymile Caribou herd (FCH), utilizing multiple types of biological data. Current population size estimates of the FCH are made by ...
This paper seeks to provide complete proofs in modern notation of (early) key saturation number results and give some new results concerning the semi-saturation number. We highlight relevant results from extremal theory ...
Many common approximation methods exist such as linear or polynomial interpolation, splines, Taylor series, or generalized Fourier series. Unfortunately, many of these approximations are not analytic functions on the entire ...
Monitoring the size and demographic characteristics of animal populations is fundamental to the fields of wildlife ecology and wildlife management. A diverse suite of population monitoring methods have been developed and ...
