Empirical dynamics for longitudinal data
We demonstrate that the processes underlying on-line auction price bids and many other longitudinal data can be represented by an empirical first order stochastic ordinary differential equation with
Inferring stochastic dynamics from functional data
In most current data modelling for time-dynamic systems, one works with a prespecified differential equation and attempts to estimate its parameters. In contrast, we demonstrate that in the case of
Functional Varying Coefficient Models for Longitudinal Data
The proposed functional varying coefficient model provides a versatile and flexible analysis tool for relating longitudinal responses to longitudinal predictors. Specifically, this approach provides
Statistical inference of distributed delay differential equations
A new likelihood based method to estimate prameters of distributed delay differential equation models, the statistical inference of which has been unexplored, to the authors' knowledge is developed.
Efficient Local Estimation for Time-Varying Coefficients in Deterministic Dynamic Models With Applications to HIV-1 Dynamics
Recently deterministic dynamic models have become very popular in biomedical research and other scientific areas; examples include modeling human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) dynamics,
Estimating Parameters in Delay Differential Equation Models
Delay differential equations (DDEs) are widely used in ecology, physiology and many other areas of applied science. Although the form of the DDE model is usually proposed based on scientific
Lp-Solution to the Random Linear Delay Differential Equation with a Stochastic Forcing Term
This paper aims at extending a previous contribution dealing with the random autonomous-homogeneous linear differential equation with discrete delay τ > 0 , by adding a random forcing term f ( t )
Generalized varying coefficient models for longitudinal data
We propose a generalization of the varying coefficient model for longitudinal data to cases where not only current but also recent past values of the predictor process affect current response. More
Random differential equations with discrete delay
The classical Picard theorem for deterministic ordinary differential equations is extended to calculus for random differential equations with delay, via Banach fixed-point theorem, and solutions with sample-path solutions are related.
Parameter estimation of ODE’s via nonparametric estimators
This work proposes the use of a nonparametric estimator of regression functions as a first-step in the construction of an M-estimator, and shows the consistency of the derived estimator under general conditions.
