The rapid and uncertain penetration of distributed energy resources is changing the way people are consuming electricity. This development increases the risk of instability and congestion in the grid, posing great challenges to system operators in the near future. In order to optimally allocate resources and plan grid enhancement, distribution...

The estimation of extreme quantile curves of a family of conditional distributions is a non-trivial problem, due to the data-sparseness in the tail of the distribution. This thesis considers the problem of post-processing extreme precipitation forecasts in Friesland from the numerical weather prediction model HARMONIE. Assuming forecasts are...

We start our introduction to DNA matching with the direct match case: we find DNA at a crime scene and find a direct match with a member of our database. To measure the strength of our case against the match, we use likelihoodratios. We differentiate between two different situations: the probable cause case, where we already suspect our match and...

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.

In dit verslag is onderzocht of er geld te verdienen valt aan het spelen van online voetbaltoto. Er zijn twee modellen onderzocht; één op basis van onderlinge resultaten en de ander op basis van achtergrondvariabelen. Vervolgens zijn deze getest op fictieve en historische data en met elkaar vergeleken. Als conclusie is er gevonden dat er zeker...

Nowadays, a high number of transactions are performed via internet banking. Rabobank processes more than 10 million transactions per day. Most of these transactions are (part of) normal behaviour. On the other hand, some transactions are considered to be out of the ordinary. These anomalous events occur relatively infrequently (less than 10 per...

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...

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 deze bachelorscriptie wordt het lichaampjes probleem van de Zweedse wiskundige Sven Dag Wicksell geanalyseerd. In verschillende organen in het menselijk lichaam bevinden zich bolvormige lichaampjes, Wicksell bestudeerde de bolletjes in je milt. Dit deed hij aan de hand van data verkregen door post mortem doorsnijdingen van verschillende...

Er zijn paradoxen waarbij causaliteit een rol speelt. Twee interessante voorbeelden hiervan zijn Simpsons paradox en Berksons paradox. Causaliteit is een oorzakelijk verband tussen twee gebeurtenissen, waarbij de oorzaak invloed heeft op het gevolg. Vooral het oorzakelijke verband is hierbij belangrijk, want het kan zo zijn dat er twee...

In this thesis the use of in-vehicle data, obtained from a uCAN, for the estimation of the traffic speed is investigated. Since vehicles are not equipped with a uCAN yet, the uCAN data is emulated. For this emulation, the traffic simulation model Fosim is used. With the emulated uCAN data, the minimum percentage of vehicles equipped with a uCAN...

The microstructure of an object of dual phase steel is modelled with an Oriented Cylinder Model, where the martensite grains in the steel object are modelled as oriented cylinders that are randomly distributed within a big block. By cutting this block parallel to the cylinder axes, rectangular visible profiles of the cut cylinders can be...

During the discharge of a firearm gunshot residues (GSRs) escape from the barrel and other openings and may deposit on surfaces in the vicinity of the discharging firearm. The detection and identification of these GSR particles may provide valuable information in forensic investigations. A comparison, based on the elemental composition, between...

In de toegepaste statistiek spelen dalende kansdichtheden een grote rol. Denk aan kansmodellen voor de levensduur van artikelen of risico's voor levensverzekeringen. Om deze risico's af te dekken is het cruciaal om over goede schattingsmethoden voor deze onbekende kansdichtheden te beschikken. Als de steekproefgrootte uit een dalende...

Y-haplotype profiling presents special advantages for forensic casework, paternity and population studies. Y-chromosome DNA is male-specific and can sometimes be detected in stains where autosomal DNA cannot. When a suspect in a criminal case has the same Y-haplotype as found in a crime stain, what is the evidential value of the match? In such...

The traditional hazard estimator does not incorporate any assumption regarding its shape. In some application, this might not be suitable due to some perspective that the hazard should be monotone decreasing. For example, when estimating the hazard of patients with Myocardial Infarction (MI) in AMC hospital, it is believed that the hazard of...
