We extend Robinsâ€™ theory of causal inference for complex longitudinal data to the case of continuously varying as opposed to discrete covariates and treatments. In particular we establish versions ofâ€¦ (More)

The notion of coarsening at random (CAR) was introduced by Heitjan and Rubin (1991) to describe the most general form of randomly grouped, censored, or missing data, for which the coarseningâ€¦ (More)

When a spatial point process is observed through a bounded window, edge eeects hamper the estimation of characteristics such as the empty space function F , the nearest neighbour distanceâ€¦ (More)

The paper traces the development of the use of martingale methods in survival analysis from the mid 1970â€™s to the early 1990â€™s. This development was initiated by Aalenâ€™s Berkeley PhD-thesis in 1975,â€¦ (More)

Recent developments in the mathematical foundations of quantum mechanics have brought the theory closer to that of classical probability and statistics. On the other hand, the unique character ofâ€¦ (More)

We consider the problem of estimating the state of a large but finite number N of identical quantum systems. As N becomes large the problem simplifies dramatically. The only relevant measure of theâ€¦ (More)

In a companion paper we described what intuitively would seem to be the most general possible way to generate Coarsening at Random mechanisms, a sequential procedure called randomized monotoneâ€¦ (More)

Braunstein and Caves (Braunstein S L and Caves C M 1994 Phys. Rev. Lett. 72 3439â€“ 43) proposed to use Helstromâ€™s quantum information number to define, meaningfully, a metric on the set of allâ€¦ (More)

The bifunctional alkylating anticancer drug nitrogen mustard forms a variety of DNA lesions, including monoadducts and intrastrand and interstrand crosslinks. Although it is known that nucleotideâ€¦ (More)
