Bayesian Computation and Stochastic Systems
Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods have been used extensively in statistical physics over the last 40 years, in spatial statistics for the past 20 and in Bayesian image analysis over the lastExpand
Rates of convergence of the Hastings and Metropolis algorithms
We apply recent results in Markov chain theory to Hastings and Metropolis algorithms with either independent or symmetric candidate distributions, and provide necessary and sufficient conditions forExpand
Handbook of Meta-analysis in Ecology and Evolution
This is the first comprehensive handbook of meta-analysis written specifically for ecologists and evolutionary biologists, and it provides an invaluable introduction for beginners as well as an up-to-date guide for experienced meta-analysts. Expand
Eliciting expert knowledge in conservation science.
Expert knowledge is used widely in the science and practice of conservation because of the complexity of problems, relative lack of data, and the imminent nature of many conservation decisions.Expand
Size distribution and sites of origin of droplets expelled from the human respiratory tract during expiratory activities
Abstract A new expiratory droplet investigation system (EDIS) was used to conduct the most comprehensive program of study to date, of the dilution corrected droplet size distributions produced duringExpand
Bayesian Modelling and Inference on Mixtures of Distributions
This chapter aims to introduce the prior modeling, estimation, and evaluation of mixture distributions in a Bayesian paradigm. Expand
Characterization of expiration air jets and droplet size distributions immediately at the mouth opening
Abstract Size distributions of expiratory droplets expelled during coughing and speaking and the velocities of the expiration air jets of healthy volunteers were measured. Droplet size wasExpand
Asymptotic behaviour of the posterior distribution in overfitted mixture models
Abstract Summary.  We study the asymptotic behaviour of the posterior distribution in a mixture model when the number of components in the mixture is larger than the true number of components: aExpand
Modality of human expired aerosol size distributions
Abstract An essential starting point when investigating the potential role of human expired aerosols in the transmission of disease is to gain a comprehensive knowledge of the expired aerosolExpand
Characteristics of particle number and mass concentrations in residential houses in Brisbane, Australia
Abstract Diurnal variation of indoor submicrometer (0.007–0.808 μm) particle number and particle mass (approximation of PM2.5) concentrations was investigated in 15 houses in a residential suburb ofExpand
