演讲题目: A New Semiparametric Quantile Panel Data Model: Theory and Applications

摘要: In this paper, we propose a new semiparametric quantile panel data model with correlated random effects in which some of the coefficients are allowed to depend on some smooth economic variables while other coefficients remain constant. A three-stage estimation procedure is proposed to estimate both constant and functional coefficients based on the integrated quasi-likelihood approach and their asymptotic properties are investigated. We showthat the estimator of constant coefficients is root-N consistent and the estimator of varying coefficients converges in a nonparametric rate. A Monte Carlo simulation is conducted to examine the finite sample performance of the proposed estimators. Finally, the proposed semiparametric quantile panel data model is applied to estimating the impact of foreign direct investment (FDI) on economic growth using the cross-country data from 1970 to 1999.
This is a join work with Dr. Linna Chen and Dr. Ying Fang.

演讲题目: Two-sample multiple tests on correlation changes with uncorrelated screening

摘要: Detecting correlation changes between two multivariate normal vectors has important applications in construction of gene differential co-expression network and testing interactions between multivariate normal covariates with a binary response. Multiple testing with FDR control provides an efficient way to detect correlation changes. In this paper, we investigate the problem of two-sample multiple tests on correlation changes. The existing multiple testing procedures typically use only p-values/test statistics of all hypotheses. However, we show that, for two-sample multiple correlation tests, the information of supports of correlation matrices can lead to a significant improvement on statistical power. To explore the support information of correlation matrices, we propose screening statistics which are asymptotically uncorrelated with two sample correlation test statistics. A new multiple testing procedure, which combines the uncorrelated screening statistics and correlation test statistics, is developed to control the FDR. The method shares some oracle properties and improves the statistical power significantly, comparing to those procedures with p-values/test statistics only. Our study reveals an interesting phenomenon: for two-sample multiple testing problems, procedures using only p-values/test statistics can be not optimal on statistical power.

 演讲题目: Semiparametric Methods for Dimension Reduction under Linearity Conditions

 摘要: Dimension reduction has been one of  the most popular topics in regression analysis in the  past two decades. It sees much progress with the introduction of the sliced inverse regression  (SIR, Li 1991) technique and since then many inference methods have been proposed in the literature. While there are nonparametric alternatives (Xia, 2002), vast majority of these methods center around the idea of inverse regression and assume the so-called linearity condition. In the past few years, however, semiparametric methods have brought much development into the field (Ma and Zhu, 2012) without assuming the linearity condition.  In this talk, we will introduce how semiparametric methods work  in the field of dimension reduction, and show how the linearity condition affects the corresponding results.

 演讲题目: Copula-based quantile regression for longitudinal data

 摘要: Inference and prediction in quantile regression for longitudinal data are challenging  without parametric distributional assumptions. We propose a new semi-parametric approach that  uses copula to account for intra-subject dependence and approximates the marginal distributions  of longitudinal measurements, given covariates, through regression of quantiles. The proposed  method is flexible, and it can provide not only efficient estimation of quantile regression coefficients but also prediction intervals for a new subject given the prior measurements and covariates. The properties of the proposed estimator and prediction are established theoretically, and assessed numerically through a simulation study and the analysis of a Pennsylvania nursing home data.
