Age-Dependent Speciation Can Explain the Shape of Empirical Phylogenies

Oskar Hagen, Klaas Hartmann, Mike Steel, Tanja Stadler
2015 Systematic Biology  
From such trees, inferences can be made about the underlying macroevolutionary processes, yet remarkably these processes are still poorly understood.  ...  The biological motivation for the identified age-dependent speciation process may be that recently evolved taxa often colonize new regions or niches and may initially experience little competition.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The authors thank the editors Frank Anderson, Laura Kubatko, and four anonymous reviewers for their extensive and constructive suggestions.  ...

Warranty forecasting of electronic boards using short-term field data

Vehbi Comert, Mustafa Altun, Mustafa Nadar, Ertunc Erturk
2015 2015 Annual Reliability and Maintainability Symposium (RAMS)  
Before using the field data for our model of warranty forecasting, we filter it to eliminate improper data, correlated to incomplete and poorly collected data.  ...  In the fitting process we use and compare "Bayesian", "rank regression", and "maximum likelihood" fitting techniques. Our method has two steps.  ...  For this study statistical inferences are based on Weibull distribution and its beta (β) parameter. Weibull β parameter can take values in three region; 0< β < 1, β = 1, β > 1.  ...

Estimating Age-Dependent Extinction: Contrasting Evidence from Fossils and Phylogenies

Oskar Hagen, Tobias Andermann, Tiago B Quental, Alexandre Antonelli, Daniele Silvestro, Michael Alfaro
2017 Systematic Biology  
This assumption of age-independent extinction has prevailed for decades with its assessment based on survivorship curves, which, however, do not directly account for the incompleteness of the fossil record  ...  Our approach, unlike previous implementations, explicitly models unobserved species and accounts for the effects of fossil preservation on the observed longevity of sampled lineages.  ...  We also thank the editors, Michael Alfaro and Thomas Near, Thomas Ezard, and one anonymous reviewer for valuable comments on this manuscript.  ...

Jennifer Clarke, Mike West
2008 Statistical Methodology  
However, the need exists for models which examine how genomic predictors interact with existing clinical factors and provide personalized outcome predictions.  ...  We have developed clinico-genomic tree models for survival outcomes which use recursive partitioning to subdivide the current data set into homogeneous subgroups of patients, each with a specific Weibull  ...  Inference and prediction Inference and prediction at a terminal node or leaf of a given tree involve the calculation of branch probabilities and the posterior predictive distributions which underlie the  ...
