Finding parsimonious models through variable selection is a fundamental problem in many areas of statistical inference. Here, we focus on Bayesian regression models, where variable selection can be implemented through a regularizing prior imposed on the distribution of the regression coefficients. In the Bayesian literature, there are two main types of priors used to accomplish this goal: the spike-and-slab and the continuous scale mixtures of Gaussians. The former is a discrete mixture of two… Expand


Dirichlet–Laplace Priors for Optimal Shrinkage
This article proposes a new class of Dirichlet–Laplace priors, which possess optimal posterior concentration and lead to efficient posterior computation. Expand
Inference with normal-gamma prior distributions in regression problems
This paper considers the efiects of placing an absolutely continuous prior distribution on the regression coe-cients of a linear model. We show that the posterior expectation is a matrix-shrunkenExpand
The Spike-and-Slab LASSO
ABSTRACT Despite the wide adoption of spike-and-slab methodology for Bayesian variable selection, its potential for penalized likelihood estimation has largely been overlooked. In this article, weExpand
Bayesian Variable Selection in Linear Regression
Abstract This article is concerned with the selection of subsets of predictor variables in a linear regression model for the prediction of a dependent variable. It is based on a Bayesian approach,Expand
High-Dimensional Bayesian Regularised Regression with the BayesReg Package
Bayesian penalized regression techniques, such as the Bayesian lasso and the Bayesian horseshoe estimator, have recently received a significant amount of attention in the statistics literature.Expand
The Multiple Bayesian Elastic Net
We propose the multiple Bayesian elastic net (abbreviated as MBEN), a new regularization and variable selection method. High dimensional and highly correlated data are commonplace. In suchExpand
Bayesian semiparametric multiple shrinkage.
This work proposes a Bayesian semiparametric approach that allows shrinkage to multiple locations by shrinking toward a small number of random locations in a study of genetic polymorphisms and Parkinson's disease. Expand
Robust graphical modeling of gene networks using classical and alternative t-distributions
Graphical Gaussian models have proven to be useful tools for exploring network structures based on multivariate data. Applications to studies of gene expression have generated substantial interest inExpand
Sparsity information and regularization in the horseshoe and other shrinkage priors
The horseshoe prior has proven to be a noteworthy alternative for sparse Bayesian estimation, but has previously suffered from two problems. First, there has been no systematic way of specifying aExpand
Model-based clustering based on sparse finite Gaussian mixtures
In the framework of Bayesian model-based clustering based on a finite mixture of Gaussian distributions, we present a joint approach to estimate the number of mixture components and identifyExpand
