    Gaussian process and Gaussian regression

    Hello, I have some problem understing the Gaussian regression and the way it works. Could you please explain to me some things? The first thing I don't understand is why this regression does it use the joint/multivariate probability to get new value of the Y? The...

    Difference between Mann-Kendall and Pearsons Correlation to obtain p-value

    before to make the linear regression why haven't you calculated the pearson index? It would have been wise to calculate the pearson index BEFORE the linear regression

    What is the difference between sample algorithms and algoritms for estimating parameters?

    I have red this in the website: MCMC is a family of sampling algorithms, which means given a distribution, these algorithms return samples according to this distribution. Many problem, bayesian posterior inference for instance, require you compute the posterior distribution P(θ|D), most of...

    Before to making a regression

    ''However, with large sample size and a larger average counts,'' What do you mean with ''large average counts'' ? sorry not native-english... Can you make an example? Also ''many say around 8 or larger, the Poisson begins to approximate a normal distribution and a linear model can be...

    Weighted avearge mean

    Hello here is my problem. I am analizying some tennis matches, and I am able to see the highest odd (bookmaker's odd) reached by that tennis player in N-matches (N is number of matches) Then I take all the highest odds reached by that tennis player during his N-matches , and...

    Before to making a regression

    Hello I want to ask you, before to making a regression should we understand which distribution follow the datas? Let's take an example: if the data have a poisson distribution, then I will run a Poisson regression? If the data follow a gaussian then one should use...

    Density probability function considering a subinterval which have different probabilities

    Thanks I don't get it what is F(b) and what is F(a)... sorry.... How do I integrate PDF from a to b? Sorry could you make an example? How could I calculate it numerically?

    Density probability function considering a subinterval which have different probabilities

    Let's suppose the area was not a rectangular, but a gaussian normal distribution with a mean, a standard deviationetc. How to calculate the odds in that case?

    Don't understand the meaning of ''training a dataset''

    Hi, I have a set of data. Those data are based on data mining from my website. I have the number of users per month who go to my website ( X ) , and the time they spent on the website on each webpage ( y ) . Now with this dataset as an example, could you...

    analisy of residual

    Hi, after a regression is necessary to make an analisy of residuals to know if the model were accurate? ù Noob here, could you explaine me please, why you could do an analisy of residuals and for which purpose does it serve?

    Bernoulli distribution

    Thank you, with a Bayesian type of ''prior'' what should I assume? shoud I set as a ''prior'' probability (computed by my personal tought)? sorry if this is a terrible question, I am new

    What is teh difference between a linear regression and a correlation between 2 variables?

    I have looked into Google for predictive analytics, but there is not so many stuff to read. Have you some links for a beginner?

    Bernoulli distribution

    In a dice every event has the same odds to happen (1/6). I was asking how would it be the bernoulli distribution if the events would have different probabilities to happen Let's keep the example of a black swan when no one has never seen it before. How do you trasfrom...

    Density probability function considering a subinterval which have different probabilities

    Hi I was studying probability density and on a site I read this example Mr. Rossi waits for a phone call from Mr. Bianchi who has announced that he will call, in an unspecified instant, between 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm. Mr. Rossi must however be away from 4.45 pm to 5.00 pm. What is the probability...

    What is teh difference between a linear regression and a correlation between 2 variables?

    Thank you very much. Yes you can have an approximate idea of the linear correlation/non linear correlation between two variables. There is somenthing in statistic field to do extrapolation in a more accurate than linear regression? I have red about robust statistic
