    Convergence in LLN and CLT help!

    Hi there, I am trying to figure out how convergence in law of large number and central limit theorem is affected by correlation in the random variables. I am trying to simulate and prove if either both of the above mentioned hold in large samples. So far Ive been trying to simulate...

    Time Series Analysis Threshold Value

    I have time-series data for 0 min, 5 min, 10 min, etc. for 5000 genes. (Gene expression). I want to set a threshold value to eliminate reads that are just "noise," so that they do not contribute too much to the fold-increases/decreases that I am trying to analyze. What is a good way to...

    Poisson Distribution with two different expected value

    Question: Suppose there are number of accidents at location A and location B each day with Poisson Distribution with rate 0.001 and the number of patients during each accident is Poisson distributed with rate 0.1. Find the probability that the number of patients less than 3 in one day...

    Mixed Poisson Distribution Help

    Question: The number of accidents follows a Poisson distribution with mean 12. Each accident generates 1, 2 or 3 claimants with probabilities 1/6,1/3,1/2, respectively. Calculate the probability that there are at most 3 claimants. Attempt: E(N) = 12[\frac{1}{6}+2*\frac{1}{3}+3*\frac{1}{2}]...

    ANOVA exercise

    Hello, My question is: in which way this exercise should be solved? It can't be solved with F test, because there were no given F-test value table on the exam, so it has to be another way to solve it. The only thing I can formulate are hypotheis: H0: μ1 = μ2 = μ3 H1: at least one mean is...

    Principal Component Analysis in R- Data rotation

    I ran prcomp on my data (7000 observations, 48 variables), and I biplot I got seems to have thousands of points. My guess is that R is treating each of the 7000 observations as variables. Is there a way to "rotate" my data so that I get 48 points on my PCA graph instead of 7000? Each column...

    Okay to Sum Numerical Values of Categorical Variables?

    Hi. I have questions regarding categorical variables. Can you create a scaled variable out of several dichotomous variables? For example if I had 4 dichotomous variables, can I sum the numerical values of those variables so that the sum becomes the value of new scaled variable? If...

    not sure how to interpret variance question

    This is a question I have to do through R - Consider two of the indicators for neurological functioning - the finger wrist tapping (FWT_r, FWT_l) and the plate tapping (X2Plat_r, X2Plat_l), by both left and right hands. For which of these sets of variables would you be inclined to use...

    Comparing a sub-population to its overall population?

    Hi there, I am collecting data from a population of about 150 or so, and also from a subpopulation within that of 10-15 which are receiving a specific treatment. I am aiming to compare their scores on the same measure, to see if this population receiving treatment is truly 'special' in some...

    How do you calculate the p-value by hand? Only learned how to do it electronically

    Hello, I am making a Java program that can run a full 1-sample z-test for sample mean and I would like to know how to calculate the p-value by hand once you have the z-statistic. I have learned how to calculate it by looking at the z-table and with a calculator, but for the sake of my program I...

    How do you define a statistical way to ensure that the worst case are captured??

    I need a recommendation which addresses the variability of results. There is variability associated with these results. What I specifically need is help to define a statistical way to ensure that the worst case is captured, which can then be used in future testing and we can be sure that we...
