Recent statistical methods fitted on large-scale GPS data are getting close to answering the proverbial "When are we there?" question. Unfortunately, current methods often only provide point predictions for travel time. Understanding travel time distribution is key for decision-making and downstream applications (e.g., ride share pricing decisions). Empirically, single road-segment travel time is well-studied, understanding how to aggregate such information over many segments to arrive at the…

On the asymptotic normality of sequences of weak dependent random variables

The aim of this paper is to investigate the asymptotic normality for strong mixing sequences of random variables in the absense of stationarity or strong mixing rates. An additional condition is

Convergence rates in the strong law for bounded mixing sequences

SummarySpeed of convergence is studied for a Marcinkiewicz-Zygmund strong law for partial sums of bounded dependent random variables under conditions on their mixing rate. Though α-mixing is also

For example, the subjects in a prospective clinical trial or Randomized Controlled Trial (RCT) might initially be classified into treated and untreated (more often called “control”) groups, then later beclassified into successes and failures, which would be tantamount to the hypothesis that the treated and control groups do not differ in their success rates.

What is ergodic theory

Ergodic theory involves the study of transformations on measure spaces. Interchanging the words “measurable function” and “probability density function” translates many results from real analysis to

λ) be the [0, 1] metric space equipped with the Lebesgue measure λ. Let Tx = T (x) (mod 1) = x+ α (mod 1). Then, if α ∈ R \Q(irrationals) the system is ergodic, if α 6∈ Q, the system is not ergodic
