False discovery rate envelopes [article]

Tomáš Mrkvička, Mari Myllymäki
2022 arXiv   pre-print
Such an envelope offers a straightforward interpretation of the test results similarly as in global envelope testing recently developed with controlling the family-wise error rate.  ...  False discovery rate (FDR) is a common way to control the number of false discoveries in multiple testing.  ...  Further, it tends to have a little bit tighter control of FDR than ATS and ATSE, as it can be seen from Figure 6 where the FDR control is studied with respect to increasing resolution m for the Gaussian  ...

Discussion of "On Bayesian Estimation of Marginal Structural Models"

Michael R. Elliott, Roderick J. Little
2015 Biometrics  
In this article, we formalize the notion of such a pseudo-population as a data generating mechanism with particular characteristics, and show that this leads to a natural Bayesian interpretation of IPT  ...  The purpose of inverse probability of treatment (IPT) weighting in estimation of marginal treatment effects is to construct a pseudo-population without imbalances in measured covariates, thus removing  ...  Acknowledgements The majority of this work was carried out when the first author was working at the Department of Epidemiology Acknowledgement This work was partly funded by NIH grants P01 CA134294  ...

Reducing Runtime by Recycling Samples [article]

Jialei Wang, Hai Wang, Nathan Srebro
2016 arXiv   pre-print
Contrary to the situation with stochastic gradient descent, we argue that when using stochastic methods with variance reduction, such as SDCA, SAG or SVRG, as well as their variants, it could be beneficial  ...  to reuse previously used samples instead of fresh samples, even when fresh samples are available.  ...  bit more than an integer number of epochs.  ...
