Ralph Kritzinger, Markus Passenbrunner
2019 arXiv   pre-print
We show a stronger result on the distribution of discrepancy functions of point sets in [0,1], which basically says that the distribution of the discrepancy function of Γ_N is in some sense minimal among  ...  The irregularities of a distribution of N points in the unit interval are often measured with various notions of discrepancy.  ...  The distribution of the one-parameter discrepancy function The function D and its extremal distribution are easily analyzed.  ...

Zheng Wang, Ruimin Hu, Yi Yu, Junjun Jiang, Jiayi Ma, Shin'ichi Satoh
2017 Proceedings of the 2017 ACM on Multimedia Conference - MM '17  
However, we find that, in fact, the distribution of discrepancies of positive pairs might tend to the Laplace distribution rather than the Gaussian distribution.  ...  Based on this finding, we propose a metric learning method by exploiting Gaussian-Laplace distribution statistical inference, where the Gaussian distribution of negative discrepancies and the Laplace distribution  ...  Program of China (2015AA016306).  ...

Effects of Somatic Dysfunction on Leg Length and Weight Bearing

Yasmi Qureshi, Andrew Kusienski, Julienne Bemski, John Luksch, Lacy Knowles
2014 The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association  
Weight-bearing distribution through each lower extremity was measured on a quadruped scale. Participants were then evaluated for somatic dysfunctions of the pelvis, sacrum, and lower lumbar spine.  ...  Their association with leg length discrepancies has been observed; however, it is unclear which dysfunctions lead to mild changes in leg length or weight bearing distribution in asymptomatic individuals  ...  of data; Ms Qureshi, Dr Kusienski, and Student Doctor Bemski drafted the article or revised it critically for important intellectual content; and Ms Qureshi gave final approval of the version of the article  ...

ABC model selection for spatial extremes models applied to South Australian maximum temperature data

Xing Ju Lee, Markus Hainy, James P. McKeone, Christopher C. Drovandi, Anthony N. Pettitt
2018 Computational Statistics & Data Analysis  
ABC algorithms rely on the evaluation of discrepancies between model simulations and the observed data rather than explicit evaluations of computationally expensive or intractable likelihood functions.  ...  Max-stable processes are a common choice for modelling spatial extreme data as they arise naturally as the infinite-dimensional generalisation of multivariate extreme value theory.  ...  We only require the discrepancy function to induce an ordering of the simulated data with respect to the observed data.  ...

Combining Groundwater Flow Modeling and Local Estimates of Extreme Groundwater Levels to Predict the Groundwater Surface with a Return Period of 100 Years

Hans Kupfersberger, Gerhard Rock, Johannes C. Draxler

A New Calibrated Bayesian Internal Goodness-of-Fit Method: Sampled Posterior p-Values as Simple and General p-Values That Allow Double Use of the Data

Frédéric Gosselin, Pedro Antonio Valdes-Sosa
2011 PLoS ONE  
As a result, no known GOF p-value has a known probability distribution for any discrepancy function.  ...  Recent approaches mixing frequentist principles with Bayesian inference propose internal goodness-of-fit (GOF) p-values that might be valuable for critical analysis of Bayesian statistical models.  ...  Acknowledgments The author thanks Elfie Perdereau for discussion on the posterior predictive checks, Vicki Moore for correcting the English, and Claude Millier and Marion Gosselin for re-reading a previous version of  ...

Uniformly distributed sequences generated by a greedy minimization of the L_2 discrepancy [article]

Ralph Kritzinger
2022 arXiv   pre-print
The approach we follow here is motivated by recent work of Steinerberger and Pausinger who consider similar greedy algorithms, where they minimize functionals that can be related to the star discrepancy  ...  The figures of merit are three different variants of L_2 discrepancy. Theoretical results along with numerical experiments suggest that the resulting sequences have excellent distribution properties.  ...  Acknowledgements I would like to thank Stefan Steinerberger for his friendly feedback and his suggestions on how to highlight the most interesting aspects of the results more clearly.  ...
