Prof. Inchi HU will give a talk on Large Scale Inference for Chi-squared Data tomorrow, which proposes the Tweedie’s formula in the Bayesian hierarchical model for chi-squared data, and he mentioned a thought-provoking paper, Efron, B. (2011). Tweedie’s Formula and Selection Bias. Journal of the American Statistical Association, 106(496), 1602–1614., which is the focus of this note.

I noticed that the papers of matrix/tensor completion always talk about the Bernstein inequality, then I picked the Bernstein Bounds discussed in Wainwright (2019).

Prof. YUAN Ming will give a distinguish lecture on Low Rank Tensor Methods in High Dimensional Data Analysis. To get familiar with his work on tensor, I read his paper, Yuan, M., & Zhang, C.-H. (2016). On Tensor Completion via Nuclear Norm Minimization. Foundations of Computational Mathematics, 16(4), 1031–1068., which is the topic of this post.

This post reviewed the topic of path sampling in the lecture slides of STAT 5020, and noted a general path sampling described by Gelman and Meng (1998), then used a toy example to illustrate it with Stan programming language.

Larry wrote that “Noninformative priors are a lost cause” in his post, LOST CAUSES IN STATISTICS II: Noninformative Priors, and he mentioned his review paper Kass and Wasserman (1996) on noninformative priors. This note is for this paper.

This report is motivated by comments under Larry’s post, Modern Two-Sample Tests.

I learned Stein’s Paradox from Larry Wasserman’s post, STEIN’S PARADOX, perhaps I had encountered this term before but I cannot recall anything about it. (~~I am guilty~~)

This note is based on Karl Sigman’s IEOR 6711: Continuous-Time Markov Chains.

I encounter the term RIP in Larry Wasserman’s post, RIP RIP (Restricted Isometry Property, Rest In Peace), and also find some material in Hastie et al.’s book: Statistical Learning with Sparsity about RIP.

The paper, Greenshtein and Ritov (2004), is recommended by Larry Wasserman in his post Consistency, Sparsistency and Presistency.

In Prof. Shao’s wonderful talk, Wandering around the Asymptotic Theory, he mentioned the Studentized U-statistics. I am interested in the derivation of the variances in the denominator.

This note is for Doucet, A., & Johansen, A. M. (2009). A tutorial on particle filtering and smoothing: Fifteen years later. Handbook of Nonlinear Filtering, 12(656–704), 3. For the sake of clarity, I split the general SMC methods (section 3) into my next post.
