Statistical packages have been used for decades to analyze large datasets or to perform mathematically intractable statistical methods. These packages are not capable of working with random variables having arbitrary distributions. This article presents a prototype probability package named APPL (A Probability Programming Language) that can be used to manipulate random variables. Examples illustrate its use. A current version of the software can be obtained by contacting the third author at .

The article presents the theory of stationary regularly varying random fields. In this context, we prove a new compound Poisson approximation theorem under appropriate dependence conditions, and…

Inferring the shape of data: A probabilistic framework for analyzing experiments in the natural sciences

- Computer Science
- 2021

The ability to probabilistically calculate shapes may be used to quantitatively compare how well different theories describe a dataset, detect changes in experimental data, and identify and localize features within experimental data in a generalizable and objective manner using a shape searching method the authors call Bayesian Inference-based Template Search (BITS).

On Approximating the Distributions of goodness-of-Fit Test Statistics Based on the Empirical Distribution Function: the Case of Unknown Parameters

- MathematicsAdv. Complex Syst.
- 2009

It is argued that failing to re-estimate unknown parameters on each simulated Monte-Carlo sample — and thus avoiding to employ this information to build the test statistic — may lead to wrong, overly-conservative approximations.

Estimating the variance of Shannon entropy

- Computer SciencePhysical review. E
- 2021

The aim of the present work is to investigate, in the multinomial case, the statistical properties of an estimator of a parameter that describes the variance of the plugin estimators of Shannon entropy, and to determine the probability distributions that maximize that parameter.

Nonparametric causal inference for bivariate time series.

- Computer SciencePhysical review. E
- 2016

New quantities for exploratory causal inference between bivariate time series, called penchants and leanings, are introduced and may provide a clearer interpretation of the results than those from existing time series causality tools.
