Abstract Univariate and multivariate normal probability distributions are widely used when modeling decisions under uncertainty. Computing the performance of such models requires integrating these distributions over specific domains, which can vary widely across models. Besides some special cases where these integrals are easy to calculate, there exist no general analytical expressions, standard numerical methods, or software for these integrals. Here we present mathematical results and open…

A unified interpretation of the Gaussian mechanism for differential privacy through the sensitivity index
It is argued that the three prevailing interpretations of the GM, namely (ε, δ)-DP, f-DP and Rényi DP can be expressed by using a single parameter ψ, which is term the sensitivity index.
Detection of Weak Transient Signals Using a Broadband Subspace Approach
We investigate the detection of broadband weak transient signals by monitoring a projection of the measurement data onto the noise-only subspace derived from the stationary sources. This projection

A lifetime ago, as an undergraduate, I joined a team that developed a new way of thinking about the sensitivity of sensory systems, and I am gratified that what came to be called signal-detection theory (SDT) was so widely accepted and its methods so widely adopted, but I am somewhat disappointed about how SDT commonly is portrayed, and taught.
Detection of occluding targets in natural backgrounds
These efforts to measure and model detection of occluding targets in natural backgrounds were described, and the complex pattern of results was consistent across the three subjects, and was largely explained by a principled model observer that combines three image cues and four well-known properties of the human visual system.

Computation of Multivariate Normal and t Probabilities
Multivariate normal and t probabilities are needed for statistical inference in many applications. Modern statistical computation packages provide functions for the computation of these probabilities
