    Analysis for behavior change over sample treatments

    Hello all! My research examined if social behaviors in animals changed with the distribution of food treatment (clumped vs. dispersed food). My data is non-parametric. I have matrices of interaction rates between individuals. I ran Mantel tests between the interaction matrices of the...

    Variation of Mantel test?

    Hello. I am new to this forum but it looks like it will be a great reference! For my thesis I used Mantel tests to compare non-parametric behavioral data against genetic relatedness data. So, I had behavior rates in a square matrix and compared them against genetic relatedness values in a...

    Multiple Linear Regression Proof

    Hi everyone, I am enrolled in a regression analysis course at university and the prof really loves to ask for proofs on his assignments. Unfortunately, he never does any in class, and no one at the help centres on campus can ever figure out his problems either. Here is the one I am...

    Unbiased estimate of cross-product for unbiased vector

    Let g be an unbiased estimate of a vector G. Can g be used to find an unbiased estimate of the cross product GG′ (where G' is the transpose of G)? I'm stuck because naively using gg′ is a biased estimator, with the (upwards) bias depending on the noise in g.

    How to use a Distance Matrix as an Independent Variable?

    Hello, Let's say I have 100 locations. I know the distance between each location (i.e. distance matrix). How can I use the distance matrix (or some derivative) as an independent variable to access significance (if any) with the dependent/response variable(s)? Any ideas? Thanks,
