We focus on k-tuples of 1s; i.e. runs of 1s of length at least equal to a fixed integer number k, 1≤k≤n. The statistics denoting the n...ResearchWed, 15 Nov 2017 00:00:00 GMThttps://jsdajournal.springeropen.com/articles/10.1186/s40488-017-0080-5Anastasios N. Arapis, Frosso S. Makri and Zaharias M.

However, conditional mean regression models may be sensitive to re...ResearchWed, 01 Nov 2017 00:00:00 GMThttps://jsdajournal.springeropen.com/articles/10.1186/s40488-017-0073-4Peter Congdon2017-11-01T00:00:00ZDescribing the Flexibility of the Generalized Gamma and Related Distributionshttps://jsdajournal.springeropen.com/articles/10.1186/s40488-017-0072-5The generalized gamma (GG) distribution is a widely used, flexible tool for parametric survival analysis. Many alternatives and extensions to this family have been proposed. This paper characterizes the flexib...ResearchWed, 01 Nov 2017 00:00:00 GMThttps://jsdajournal.springeropen.com/articles/10.1186/s40488-017-0072-5Matthew Matheson, Alvaro Muñoz and Christopher Cox2017-11-01T00:00:00Z
