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 ...
Multivariate Copula-based SUR Tobit Models : a modified inference function for margins and interval estimation
(Universidade Federal de São Carlos, 2015-09-30)
In this thesis, we extend the analysis of multivariate Seemingly Unrelated Regression (SUR) Tobit models by modeling their nonlinear dependence structures through copulas. The capability in coupling together the diferent ...
Uma classe de modelos de regressão bivariados para respostas discreta e contínua
(Universidade Federal de São Carlos, 2016-01-28)
In this thesis, a wide general class of models for mixed responses is proposed in which joint distributions are constructed by the conditional approach (probability density functions, (pdf), as the product of a marginal ...
Modelo alfa normal assimétrico multivariado para redes de classificação
(Universidade Federal de São Carlos, 2016-03-16)
In this Thesis we expose the proposition of a new class of probability distributions, the so called alpha skew normal multivariate, an extension of the univariate Normal Alpha distribution, introduced by Elal-Olivero (2010). ...
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 ...
