A new family of continued fractions expansions is introduced by combining two existing family's (2-expansions and flipped expansions). This new family has infinitely many mappings with the property that for every x the digits are only even or only odd. Apart from a whole range of examples, convergence is proved and ergodicity is studied. By...

Many algorithms have been developed over the years to compute the nonparametric maximum likelihood estimate (NPMLE) for the cumulative distribution function of event times under interval censoring. The effective support of the NPMLE can be reduced to a set of disjoint so-called maximal intersection intervals. One feature of the NPMLE that is...

In modern Life Sciences, high dimensional correlated data matrices are often dealt with. Ordinary linear regression fail and PCA does not take into account the outcome variable(s). Also there might be large amount of orthogonal variation present. To deal with this, the O2PLS model (which is based on the PLS model) is derived. O2PLS is symmetric...

'This paper introduces the theory of optimal alarm systems on ?nancial risk indices. An alarm system is optimal if it detects catastrophes with a high probability and simultaneously gives a low number of false alarms. First a small introduction to the theory of optimal alarm systems is given. To evaluate and compare different alarm systems, a...

Microstructural banding is explored in 2D and 3D using serial sectioned micrographs. The banding is quantified using two parameters called the Band Continuity Index Cb and the Perpendicular Continuity Index Cp. The indexes determined from the 2D micrographs is shown to be sufficient for estimating the distribution of the bands in 3D. A...

In forensic science it is common practice to work on problems where the likelihood ratio is based on observing single piece of evidence given two hypotheses. However, in a lot of cases, there is more than one piece of evidence. In this thesis three problems regarding combining DNA profiles are discussed. First, we derived a method to combine the...

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...

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...
