Statistical analysis of magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) brain artery trees is performed using two methods for mapping brain artery trees to points in phylogenetic treespace: cortical landmark correspondence and descendant correspondence. The differences in end-results based on these mappings are highlighted to emphasize the importance of correspondence in tree-oriented data analysis. Representation of brain artery systems as points in phylogenetic treespace, a mathematical space developed… Expand
Branch order regression for modeling brain vasculature
TLDR
A novel parametrization preserves an important aspect of tree structure, namely its branch order, and is amenable to standard methods of analysis, like generalized linear/additive models. Expand
Persistent Homology Analysis of Brain Artery Trees.
TLDR
The correlation with age continues to be significant even after controlling for correlations from earlier significant summaries, and novel approaches to the statistical analysis lead to heightened correlations with covariates such as age and sex relative to earlier analyses of this data set. Expand
Tree Oriented Data Analysis
TLDR
Property of the Fr\'echet function are used to develop an algorithmic system for computing Fr‐echet means and a sticky law of large numbers is described which describes a surprising stability of the topological tree structure of sample Fr¬echet mean at that of the population Frµechetmean. Expand
PERSISTENT HOMOLOGY ANALYSIS OF BRAIN
New representations of tree-structured data objects, using ideas from topological data analysis, enable improved statistical analyses of a population of brain artery trees. A number ofExpand
Relative Optimality Conditions and Algorithms for Treespace Fréchet Means
TLDR
By analyzing the differential properties of the Frechet function along geodesics in treespace, a theorem describing a decomposition of the derivative along a geodesic is obtained that is used to formulate optimality conditions which are used as a logical basis for an algorithm to verify relative optimality at points where theFrechet function gradient does not exist.

Hypothesis Testing For Network Data in Functional Neuroimaging
TLDR
This work draws on concepts and techniques from geometry, and high-dimensional statistical inference, for testing in the context of networks derived from functional neuroimaging data on human subjects from the 1000 Functional Connectomes Project, and shows that this global test is more statistical powerful, than a mass-univariate approach.
