• This work overviews some developments on the estimation of the Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC) curve. Estimation methods in this area are constantly being developed, adjusted and extended, and it is thus impossible to cover all topics and areas of application in a single paper. Here, we focus on some frequentist and Bayesian methods which have been mostly employed in the medical setting. Although we emphasize the medical domain, we also describe links with other fields where related…

Estimation of the area under the ROC curve.
TLDR
This paper discusses and compares estimation procedures for the area under the receiver operating characteristic curve based on the Mann-Whitney statistic; kernel smoothing; normal assumptions; empirical transformations to normality; and compares these in terms of bias and root mean square error.
Using Smoothed Receiver Operating Characteristic Curves to Summarize and Compare Diagnostic Systems
TLDR
The use of receiver operating characteristic curves for comparing competing diagnostic systems is illustrated, new estimation methods based on kernel density estimation are developed, and the statistical performance of the new method is studied.
Bayesian bootstrap estimation of ROC curve
TLDR
The BB method offers a bandwidth‐free smoothing approach to the empirical estimate, and gives credible bounds, and in comparison with other existing curve estimation methods, the BB method performs well in terms of accuracy, robustness and simplicity.
A Study on the Bi-Rayleigh ROC Curve Model
Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC) curves are used to describe and compare the accuracy of diagnostic test or the ability of a continuous biomarker in discriminating between the subjects into
The ROC Curve and the Area under It as Performance Measures
Abstract The receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve is a two-dimensional measure of classification performance. The area under the ROC curve (AUC) is a scalar measure gauging one facet of
NONPARAMETRIC AND SEMIPARAMETRIC ESTIMATION OF THE RECEIVER OPERATING CHARACTERISTIC CURVE
curve (ODC) given by F(G-'(t)). First we consider nonparametric estimators based on empirical distribution functions and derive asymptotic properties. Next we consider the so-called semiparametric
Nonparametric estimation of the ROC curve based on smoothed empirical distribution functions
TLDR
This paper proposes a new nonparametric ROC curve estimator based on the smoothed empirical distribution functions that proves its strong consistency and performs a simulation study to compare it with some other popularnonparametric estimators of the ROC Curve.
Compare diagnostic tests using transformation-invariant smoothed ROC curves().
An overview of robust methods in medical research
TLDR
How robust inferential procedures may routinely be applied in practice in the biomedical research is outlined and numerical illustrations are given for the t-test, regression models, logistic regression, survival analysis and ROC curves, showing that robust methods are often more appropriate than standard procedures.
