Mathematically, a Bayesian graphical model is a representation of the joint probability distribution for a set of variables. The most frequently used type of Bayesian graphical models are Bayesian networks, but other types exist and Bayesian networks can be seen as a special type of Chain Graphs (see the section on Chain Graphs). The structural part of a(More)

We address the IGARCH puzzle, by which we understand the fact that a GARCH(1,1) model fitted to virtually any financial dataset exhibit the property thatˆα + ˆ β is close to one. We do this by proving that if data is generated by a stochastic volatility model but fitted to a GARCH(1,1) model one would get thatˆα + ˆ β tends to one in probability as the(More)

* As part of its Borrowing Outlook, the OECD estimates gross short– term government borrowing requirements. The article concludes that all methods for measuring short-term borrowing needs studied here – except one – provide either significantly underestimated or substantially overestimated measures. The article therefore suggests adopting the following(More)
We present weak lensing mass reconstructions for the 20 high-redshift clusters in the ESO Distant Cluster Survey. The weak lensing analysis was performed on deep, 3-color optical images taken with VLT/FORS2, using a composite galaxy catalog with separate shape estimators measured in each passband. We find that the EDisCS sample is composed primarily of(More)
E6 Silk et al. report that adult chimpanzees show no difference in their choices in a situation where one choice benefits a familiar conspe-cific and the other does not 1. From this, they conclude that chimpanzees are indifferent to the welfare of unrelated group members. But without additional data confirming that chimpanzees do choose differently in(More)
A new human exposure model has been developed that combines data on traffic air pollution and population data on a high spatial (postal address) and temporal (one hour) resolution. The model system is using a Geographic Information System in combination with available digital maps (buildings, streets, address points, property limits) and administrative(More)

The range of Ixodes ricinus and the risk of contracting Lyme borreliosis will increase northwards when the vegetation period becomes longer. geographical expansion at the northern range margin. the effects(More)
