Cross-validation and Regression Analysis in High-dimensional Sparse Linear Models

Author: N.A

Publisher: Stanford University



Page: N.A

View: 1588

Modern scientific research often involves experiments with at most hundreds of subjects but with tens of thousands of variables for every subject. The challenge of high dimensionality has reshaped statistical thinking and modeling. Variable selection plays a pivotal role in the high-dimensional data analysis, and the combination of sparsity and accuracy is crucial for statistical theory and practical applications. Regularization methods are attractive for tackling these sparsity and accuracy issues. The first part of this thesis studies two regularization methods. First, we consider the orthogonal greedy algorithm (OGA) used in conjunction with a high-dimensional information criterion introduced by Ing& Lai (2011). Although it has been shown to have excellent performance for weakly sparse regression models, one does not know a priori in practice that the actual model is weakly sparse, and we address this problem by developing a new cross-validation approach. OGA can be viewed as L0 regularization for weakly sparse regression models. When such sparsity fails, as revealed by the cross-validation analysis, we propose to use a new way to combine L1 and L2 penalties, which we show to have important advantages over previous regularization methods. The second part of the thesis develops a Monte Carlo Cross-Validation (MCCV) method to estimate the distribution of out-of-sample prediction errors when a training sample is used to build a regression model for prediction. Asymptotic theory and simulation studies show that the proposed MCCV method mimics the actual (but unknown) prediction error distribution even when the number of regressors exceeds the sample size. Therefore MCCV provides a useful tool for comparing the predictive performance of different regularization methods for real (rather than simulated) data sets.

View: 4663

A comprehensive and timely edition on an emerging new trend in time series Linear Models and Time-Series Analysis: Regression, ANOVA, ARMA and GARCH sets a strong foundation, in terms of distribution theory, for the linear model (regression and ANOVA), univariate time series analysis (ARMAX and GARCH), and some multivariate models associated primarily with modeling financial asset returns (copula-based structures and the discrete mixed normal and Laplace). It builds on the author's previous book, Fundamental Statistical Inference: A Computational Approach, which introduced the major concepts of statistical inference. Attention is explicitly paid to application and numeric computation, with examples of Matlab code throughout. The code offers a framework for discussion and illustration of numerics, and shows the mapping from theory to computation. The topic of time series analysis is on firm footing, with numerous textbooks and research journals dedicated to it. With respect to the subject/technology, many chapters in Linear Models and Time-Series Analysis cover firmly entrenched topics (regression and ARMA). Several others are dedicated to very modern methods, as used in empirical finance, asset pricing, risk management, and portfolio optimization, in order to address the severe change in performance of many pension funds, and changes in how fund managers work. Covers traditional time series analysis with new guidelines Provides access to cutting edge topics that are at the forefront of financial econometrics and industry Includes latest developments and topics such as financial returns data, notably also in a multivariate context Written by a leading expert in time series analysis Extensively classroom tested Includes a tutorial on SAS Supplemented with a companion website containing numerous Matlab programs Solutions to most exercises are provided in the book Linear Models and Time-Series Analysis: Regression, ANOVA, ARMA and GARCH is suitable for advanced masters students in statistics and quantitative finance, as well as doctoral students in economics and finance.

Correlation and Regression Analysis

A Historian's Guide

Author: Thomas J. Archdeacon

Publisher: Univ of Wisconsin Press

ISBN: 9780299136543

Category: History

Page: 352

View: 7813

In Correlation and Regression Analysis: A Historian's Guide Thomas J. Archdeacon provides historians with a practical introduction to the use of correlation and regression analysis. The book concentrates on the kinds of analysis that form the broad range of statistical methods used in the social sciences. It enables historians to understand and to evaluate critically the quantitative analyses that they are likely to encounter in journal literature and monographs reporting research findings in the social sciences. Without attempting to be a text in basic statistics, the book provides enough background information to allow readers to grasp the essentials of correlation and regression. Correlation analysis refers to the measurement of association between or among variables, and regression analysis focuses primarily on the use of linear models to predict changes in the value taken by one variable in terms of changes in the values of a set of explanatory variables. The book also discusses diagnostic methods for identifying shortcomings in regression models, the use of regression to analyze causation, and the application of regression and related procedures to the study of problems containing categorical as well as numerical data. Archdeacon asserts that knowing how statistical procedures are computed can clarify the theoretical structures underlying them and is essential for recognizing the conditions under which their use is appropriate. The book does not shy away from the mathematics of statistical analysis; but Archdeacon presents concepts carefully and explains the operation of equations step by step. Unlike many works in the field, the book does not assume that readers have mathematical training beyond basic algebra and geometry. In the hope of promoting the role of quantitative analysis in his discipline, Archdeacon discusses the theory and methods behind the most important interpretive paradigm for quantitative research in the social sciences. Correlation and Regression Analysis introduces statistical techniques that are indispensable to historians and enhances the presentation of them with practical examples from scholarly works.

The Coordinate-Free Approach to Linear Models

Author: Michael J. Wichura

Publisher: Cambridge University Press

ISBN: 1139461044

Category: Mathematics

Page: N.A

View: 523

This book is about the coordinate-free, or geometric, approach to the theory of linear models; more precisely, Model I ANOVA and linear regression models with non-random predictors in a finite-dimensional setting. This approach is more insightful, more elegant, more direct, and simpler than the more common matrix approach to linear regression, analysis of variance, and analysis of covariance models in statistics. The book discusses the intuition behind and optimal properties of various methods of estimating and testing hypotheses about unknown parameters in the models. Topics covered range from linear algebra, such as inner product spaces, orthogonal projections, book orthogonal spaces, Tjur experimental designs, basic distribution theory, the geometric version of the Gauss-Markov theorem, optimal and non-optimal properties of Gauss-Markov, Bayes, and shrinkage estimators under assumption of normality, the optimal properties of F-test, and the analysis of covariance and missing observations.

Nonparametric Regression and Generalized Linear Models

A roughness penalty approach

Author: P.J. Green,Bernard. W. Silverman

Publisher: CRC Press

ISBN: 9780412300400

Category: Mathematics

Page: 184

View: 7337

In recent years, there has been a great deal of interest and activity in the general area of nonparametric smoothing in statistics. This monograph concentrates on the roughness penalty method and shows how this technique provides a unifying approach to a wide range of smoothing problems. The method allows parametric assumptions to be realized in regression problems, in those approached by generalized linear modelling, and in many other contexts. The emphasis throughout is methodological rather than theoretical, and it concentrates on statistical and computation issues. Real data examples are used to illustrate the various methods and to compare them with standard parametric approaches. Some publicly available software is also discussed. The mathematical treatment is self-contained and depends mainly on simple linear algebra and calculus. This monograph will be useful both as a reference work for research and applied statisticians and as a text for graduate students and other encountering the material for the first time.

It is a tremendous balance of applied statistical "firepower" and thoughtful explanation. It meets all of the important mechanical needs: each example is given in detail, code and data are freely available, and the nuances of models are given rather than just the bare essentials. It also meets some important theoretical needs: linear models, categorical data analysis, an introduction to applying GLMs, a discussion of model diagnostics, and useful instructions on writing customized functions.
