For small areas, some of which have survey estimates of poverty rates of 0 or 1, a zero-one inflated rate model extends the beta distribution to allow for these extreme estimates. The addition of a model error term(More)
A new spectroradiometry system specialized for measuring two-dimensional temperature gradients for samples at high pressure in the laser heated diamond anvil cell has been designed and constructed at UCLA. Emitted light intensity from sample hotspots is imaged by a videocamera for real time monitoring, an imaging spectroradiometer for temperature(More)
