Paper’s review: Zhu & Fang, 1996. Asymptotics for kernel estimate of sliced inverse regression.

It is already known, that for $latex { Y\in {\mathbb R} }&fg=000000$ and $latex { X \in {\mathbb R}^{p} }&fg=000000$, the regression problem $latex \displaystyle Y = f(\mathbf{X}) + \varepsilon, &fg=000000$ when $latex { p }&fg=000000$ is larger than the data available, it is well-known that the curse of dimensionality problem arises.

How to keep yourself easily updated in statistics (or in any subject)

Keeping yourself updated to new theories and discoveries in the scientific world is crucial. Talking with a university’s friend, we agreed that reading recent articles about our interest areas is comparable to read the local newspaper. Sometimes I am a little forgetful and I could pass to check all the news advances in statistics very often. …

Semaine d’Etude “Mathématiques et Entreprise”

Working on the “Elaboration of physics models for road traffic” (http://www.math.univ-toulouse.fr/SEME/) Abstract (in French) La modélisation du trafic routier est un sujet abordé dans de nombreux domaines. L’objectif est de mettre en parallèle deux d’entre eux: la physique et la statistique. La modélisation physique du trafic routier repose sur la loi de conservation des véhicules …

Few days ago I signed-up into AuthorAID. This program helps to researchers from developing countries to get experience preparing scientific articles for publication in peer-reviewed journals. You can check my profile at http://www.authoraid.info/author/maikolsolis Moreover, the news section gives useful tips and resources about things related to this preparation.  http://www.authoraid.info/news Let me know in the comments if you …

JdS 2012: Efficient estimation of conditional covariance matrices for dimension reduction

In the framework of the Journées de Statisque 2012 in Bruxelles, I presented the paper “Efficient estimation of conditional covariance matrices” made under Jean-Michel Loubes and Clement Marteau direction. You could check the program and the slides of the presentation. Today I will present you some ideas about the problem studied and the solution found …
