Defective models for cure rate modeling
(Universidade Federal de São Carlos, 2016-04-01)
Modeling of a cure fraction, also known as long-term survivors, is a part of survival analysis. It studies cases where supposedly there are observations not susceptible to the event of interest. Such cases require special ...
Parametric and semi-parametric cure rate models with spatial frailties for interval-censored data
(Universidade Federal de São Carlos, 2016-05-31)
In this thesis, we extend some flexible cure rate models, such as the geometric, negative binomial and power series cure rate models, to allow for spatial correlations by including spatial frailties for the interval ...
