In extreme value theory the focus is on the tails of the distribution. The main focus is to estimate the tail distribution for a rounded data set. To estimate this tail distribution the extreme value index should be estimated, but due to the rounded data this extreme value index oscillates heavily. Therefore a correct estimate can not be...

In this thesis several methods for variable selection for statistical models are examined. There is specific attention for variable selection in so called "dependent data", in which there exists a strong correlation between the independent variables.

Certain banks offer its customers a new investment product, which is known as AEX-sparen. A minimal amount of 5000 Euro is put into a bank account and this will be returned after four months plus interest. The interest is the same as the AEX-Index has earned in the previous four months, but is maximized to 10 %. If the AEX-Index has gone down...

Tijdens het varen zijn er verschillende data gemeten. In deze data zitten fouten. Vanwege de fouten zijn er aannames opgesteld. De aannames worden getoetst. De data wordt gecorrigeerd, gebruikmakend van gewogen gemiddelden en kubische splines

The goal of this thesis is to estimate parameters in a bidimensional Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process, namely a diffusion model which can be found in Favetto and Samson (2010), which considers plasma and interstitium concentrations. We first look at a general linear stochastic differential equation and some properties. Then we simulate possible paths...

In statistics one often encounters the problem of estimating a function based on a given dataset. Sometimes shape properties such as monotonicity of the function are known. This property can be used in a non-parametric regression model. The iterative convex minorant(ICM) algorithm can be used to compute an estimate of a convex regression...

Quantization-based watermarking schemes comprise a class of watermarking schemes that achieves the channel capacity in terms of additive noise attacks.1 The existence of good high dimensional lattices that can be efficiently implemented2–4 and incorporated into watermarking structures, made quantization-based watermarking schemes of practical...

Statistics deals with answering questions based on collected data. In medical applications, the quantity of interest can often not be observed directly. They are censored. It is a challenge to answer the question as precisely as possible based on the incomplete data. The quantity of interest can be censored in many different ways. In HIV vaccine...

This study aims at aiming an insight into the rainfall in the Netherlands with regard to the determination of the desirable capacity of draining-mills. With this end in view a statistical investigation has been made of the data of the daily quantities of rain during the years 1890 up to 1939 inclusive, at Boskoop, Leeghwater and Hoorn. First of...

This thesis answers the question "How can we show and improve our confidence in coastal forecasts?", by providing four examples of common coastal forecasts. The first example shows how to improve the estimate of the one in ten thousand year storm-surge level. The three dimensional reconstruction, based on paintings, shows that structural erosion...

This thesis aims at the development of physical relations between the intricate 3D features of metallic microstructures and the mechanical properties of the material. For understanding which are the microstructural determinants of the resultingmechanical behaviour of metals, a deep quantitative characterisation of the microstructure is needed....

An overview of bicycle and rider kinematic motions from a series of experimental treadmill tests is presented. The full kinematics of bicycles and riders were measured with an active motion capture system. Motion across speeds are compared graphically with box and whiskers plots. Trends and ranges in amplitude are shown to characterize the...

Rainfall extremes are thought to have increased over recent years. Typically linear trends have been considered to describe the temporal evolution of high quantiles of the daily rainfall distribution. For long records it is important to allow more flexibility. Quantile regression methods are available to estimate monotone trends for single...

A method to test the assumption of nonhomogeneous Poisson point processes is implemented to analyze corrosion pit patterns. The method is calibrated with three artificially generated patterns and manages to accurately assess whether a pattern distribution is random, regular, or clustered. The interevent and the nearest-neighbor statistics are...

The resolution of coherent and incoherent imaging systems is usually evaluated in terms of classical resolution criteria, such as Rayleigh’s. Based on these criteria, incoherent imaging is generally concluded to be ‘better’ than coherent imaging. However, this paper reveals some misconceptions in the application of the classical criteria, which...

In many experimental investigations of thermodynamic equilibrium or kinetic properties of series of similar reactions it is found that the enthalpies and entropies derived from Van ′t Hoff or Arrhenius plots exhibit a strong linear correlation. The origin of this Enthalpy-Entropy compensation, which is strongly related to the coalescence...
