Sudipto Banerjee ( received his B.S. in Statistics from the University of Calcutta, India, an M.Stat. from the Indian Statistical Institute, Calcutta, and then his M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of Connecticut, Storrs. He is currently an Assistant Professor in the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, where his research interests include spatial statistics and modelling. When not dabbling in mathematics, he enjoys dining out on exotic cuisine and spending time with… 
The Dispersion Bias
Geoclimatic, demographic and socioeconomic characteristics related to dengue outbreaks in Southeastern Brazil: an annual spatial and spatiotemporal risk model over a 12-year period
The highest rates of d Dengue are concentrated in geographical clusters with lower surface pressure, rainfall and altitude, but also in municipalities with higher degree of urbanization and better socioeconomic conditions, Nevertheless, annual consolidated variations in climatic features do not influence in the epidemic yearly pattern of dengue in southeastern Brazil.

The Dispersion Bias
A novel metric is introduced, the optimization bias, which has a positive lower bound prior to correction and tends to zero almost surely after correction, and is used to correct excess dispersion in the leading eigenvector of a sample covariance matrix.
Evidence for Community Transmission of Community-Associated but Not Health-Care-Associated Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus Strains Linked to Social and Material Deprivation: Spatial Analysis of Cross-sectional Data
There was no evidence of community transmission of HA- MRSA strains, implying that HA-MRSA cases identified in the community originate from the hospital reservoir and are maintained by frequent attendance at health care facilities, and the potential for associations with the English Indices of Deprivation 2010 and the 2011 England and Wales census demographic and socioeconomic indicators.

Matrix Analysis and Applied Linear Algebra
The author presents Perron-Frobenius theory of nonnegative matrices Index, a theory of matrices that combines linear equations, vector spaces, and matrix algebra with insights into eigenvalues and Eigenvectors.
Matrix Algebra From a Statistician's Perspective

Quaternions and Rotation Sequences
In this paper we introduce and define the quaternion; we give a brief introduction to its properties and algebra, and we show, what appears to be, its primary application — the quaternion rotation
A minimal, rotation-based FRLS lattice algorithm
An alternate Givens rotation-based least-squares lattice algorithm based on spherical trigonometry principles is proposed, which satisfies the backward consistency property and enjoys stable error propagation.
