Bayesian belief networks to integrate monitoring evidence of water distribution system contamination (20120206)A Bayesian belief network (BBN) methodology is proposed for combining evidence to better characterize contamination events and reduce false positive sensor detections in drinking water distribution systems. A BBN is ...

(20120201)Bayesian inference provides a flexible way of combiningg data with prior information. However, quantile regression is not equipped with a parametric likelihood, and therefore, Bayesian inference for quantile regression ...

(1993)We consider the problem of regressing a dichotomous response variable on a predictor variable. Our interest is in modelling the probability of occurrence of the response as a function of the predictor variable, and in ...
