Examination of multiple conditional quantile functions provides a comprehensive view of the relationship between the response and covariates. In situations where quantile slope coefficients share some common features, estimation efficiency and model interpretability can be improved by utilizing such commonality across quantiles. Furthermore, elimination of(More)
Most existing methods for identifying aberrant regions with array CGH data are confined to a single target sample. Focusing on the comparison of multiple samples from two different groups, we develop a new penalized regression approach with a fused adaptive lasso penalty to accommodate the spatial dependence of the clones. The nonrandom aberrant genomic(More)
Statistical inference in censored quantile regression is challenging, partly due to the unsmoothness of the quantile score function. A new procedure is developed to estimate the variance of the Bang and Tsiatis inverse-censoring-probability weighted estimator for censored quantile regression by employing the idea of induced smoothing. The proposed variance(More)
In this paper, we develop an efficient moments-based permutation test approach to improve the test's computational efficiency by approximating the permutation distribution of the test statistic with Pearson distribution series. This approach involves the calculation of the first four moments of the permutation distribution. We propose a novel recursive(More)
It is a fascinating yet challenging problem to accurately and efficiently localize regionally distinct features between face groups in multi-dimensional signal processing and analysis. Given a data with unknown distribution and small sample size, we propose a new statistical analysis framework using hybrid randomization (i.e., permutation) tests to improve(More)
