Although multivariate count data are routinely collected in many application areas, there is surprisingly little work developing flexible models for characterizing their dependence structure. This is particularly true when interest focuses on inferring the conditional independence graph. In this article, we propose a new class of pairwise Markov random field-type models for the joint distribution of a multivariate count vector. By employing a novel type of transformation, we avoid restricting…

In the context of count data, a mixture of Poisson log-normal distributions with tree-shaped graphical models is introduced, to recover the dependency structure, including missing actors, and a variational EM algorithm is designed and assessed.

Analyzing initial stage of COVID-19 transmission through Bayesian time-varying model

- Computer Science

This work proposes a novel time-varying semiparametric AR$(p)$ model for the count valued time-series of newly affected cases, collected every day and extends it to propose a novelTime-Varying INGARCH model to model the non-stationary spread.

Time-varying auto-regressive models for count time-series

- Mathematics, Computer Science

Three novel approaches provide classes of Poisson-like graphical models that can capture both positive and negative conditional dependencies between count-valued variables, and one can learn the graph structure of these models via penalized neighborhood selection.
