BMI Seminar with Yanuan Ma of the Penn State University Department of Statistics (virtual and in-person)
Network Functional Varying Coefficient Model
Friday, April 29, 2022
Dr. Ma will discuss a network functional varying coefficient (NFVC) model that describes both the interindividual dependence and within-individual dynamic correlation. This model adds to the richness of both the classical network autoregression and the functional regression models. His group devised a special nonparametric least-squares-type estimator to over come the complexity of network dependence, The group also proposes a within-individual covariance estimation method.
