Let ∆ > 1 be a fixed positive integer. For z ∈ R∆+ let Gz be chosen uniformly at random from the collection of graphs on ‖z‖1n vertices that have zin vertices of degree i for i = 1, . . . ,∆. We… (More)

We consider the following question: given a sequence X1; … ;Xn of binary values, how likely is it that the sequence was the output of n i.i.d. Bernoulli trials? And if it was not, can we detect the… (More)

We consider an anomaly detection problem. We are interested in whether or not a stream of data contains an unusual number or distribution of positives. Abstractly, the problem can be stated as… (More)

We ask the question, “How good are parameter estimates?,” and offer criticism of confidence intervals as an answer. Instead we suggest the engineering community adopt a little known idea, that of… (More)
