  • Testing for independence in arbitrary distributions
    • Authors: Genest C; Nešlehová J, Rémillard B, et al.
      Pages: 47 - 68
      Abstract: SUMMARYStatistics are proposed for testing the hypothesis that arbitrary random variables are mutually independent. The tests are consistent and well behaved for any marginal distributions; they can be used, for example, for contingency tables which are sparse or whose dimension depends on the sample size, as well as for mixed data. No regularity conditions, data jittering, or binning mechanisms are required. The statistics are rank-based functionals of Cramér–von Mises type whose asymptotic behaviour derives from the empirical multilinear copula process. Approximate $p$-values are computed using a wild bootstrap. The procedures are simple to implement and computationally efficient, and maintain their level well in moderate to large samples. Simulations suggest that the tests are robust with respect to the number of ties in the data, can easily detect a broad range of alternatives, and outperform existing procedures in many settings. Additional insight into their performance is provided through asymptotic local power calculations under contiguous alternatives. The procedures are illustrated on traumatic brain injury data.

  • A sequential algorithm for false discovery rate control on directed
           acyclic graphs
    • Authors: Ramdas A; Chen J, Wainwright M, et al.
      Pages: 69 - 86
      Abstract: SUMMARYWe propose a linear-time, single-pass, top-down algorithm for multiple testing on directed acyclic graphs, where nodes represent hypotheses and edges specify a partial ordering in which the hypotheses must be tested. The procedure is guaranteed to reject a sub-directed acyclic graph with bounded false discovery rate while satisfying the logical constraint that a rejected node’s parents must also be rejected. It is designed for sequential testing settings where the directed acyclic graph structure is known a priori but the $p$-values are obtained selectively, such as in a sequence of experiments; however, the algorithm is also applicable in nonsequential settings where all $p$-values can be calculated in advance, such as in model selection. Our algorithm provably controls the false discovery rate under independence, positive dependence or arbitrary dependence of the $p$-values and specializes to known algorithms in the special cases of trees and line graphs; it simplifies to the classical Benjamini–Hochberg procedure when the directed acyclic graph has no edges. We explore the empirical performance of our algorithm through simulations and analysis of a real dataset corresponding to a gene ontology, and we demonstrate its favourable performance in terms of computational time and power.

  • Counting process-based dimension reduction methods for censored outcomes
    • Authors: Sun Q; Zhu R, Wang T, et al.
      Pages: 181 - 196
      Abstract: SUMMARYWe propose counting process-based dimension reduction methods for right-censored survival data. Semiparametric estimating equations are constructed to estimate the dimension reduction subspace for the failure time model. Our methods address two limitations of existing approaches. First, using the counting process formulation, they do not require estimation of the censoring distribution to compensate for the bias in estimating the dimension reduction subspace. Second, the nonparametric estimation involved adapts to the structural dimension, so our methods circumvent the curse of dimensionality. Asymptotic normality is established for the estimators. We propose a computationally efficient approach that requires only a singular value decomposition to estimate the dimension reduction subspace. Numerical studies suggest that our new approaches exhibit significantly improved performance. The methods are implemented in the $\texttt{R}$ package $\texttt{orthoDr}$.

  • Low-risk population size estimates in the presence of capture
    • Authors: Johndrow J; Lum K, Manrique-Vallier D.
      Pages: 197 - 210
      Abstract: SUMMARYPopulation estimation methods are used for estimating the size of a population from samples of individuals. In many applications, the probability of being observed in the sample varies across individuals, resulting in sampling bias. We show that in this setting, estimators of the population size have high and sometimes infinite risk, leading to large uncertainty in the population size. As an alternative, we propose estimating the population of individuals with observation probability exceeding a small threshold. We show that estimators of this quantity have lower risk than estimators of the total population size. The proposed approach is shown empirically to result in large reductions in mean squared error in a common model for capture-recapture population estimation with heterogeneous capture probabilities.

  • Semiparametric inference for the dominance index under the density ratio
    • Authors: Zhuang W; Hu B, Chen J.
      Pages: 229 - 241
      Abstract: SUMMARYAn important and often discussed research problem in statistics is how to compare several populations; examples arise in medical science, engineering, finance and other fields. Often population means or medians are compared. However, one population may have a higher mean income, for example, because of a small number of super-rich individuals; the mean therefore may not reflect the wealth of the general population. Instead, an index of the degree of stochastic dominance of one population over another would better reflect their relative wealth. Currently, we can estimate such an index under restrictive conditions, but there is no generic estimator with a known asymptotic distribution. In this paper, we suggest linking the populations via the density ratio model. Under this model, we develop an empirical likelihood estimator and establish its asymptotic normality. In addition, we improve the estimation efficiency by examining the similarities between the populations. Furthermore, we provide a valid bootstrap method for hypothesis testing and the construction of confidence intervals. Simulation experiments show that the proposed estimator substantially improves the estimation efficiency and power of the test, and leads to confidence intervals with satisfactorily precise coverage probabilities. It is also robust with respect to mild model misspecification. Two examples are given to demonstrate the usefulness of both the method and the concept.

  • Signal-plus-noise matrix models: eigenvector deviations and fluctuations
    • Authors: Cape J; Tang M, Priebe C.
      Pages: 243 - 250
      Abstract: SummaryEstimating eigenvectors and low-dimensional subspaces is of central importance for numerous problems in statistics, computer science and applied mathematics. In this paper we characterize the behaviour of perturbed eigenvectors for a range of signal-plus-noise matrix models encountered in statistical and random-matrix-theoretic settings. We establish both first-order approximation results, i.e., sharp deviations, and second-order distributional limit theory, i.e., fluctuations. The concise methodology presented in this paper synthesizes tools rooted in two core concepts, namely deterministic decompositions of matrix perturbations and probabilistic matrix concentration phenomena. We illustrate our theoretical results with simulation examples involving stochastic block model random graphs.

  • Gene hunting with hidden Markov model knockoffs
    • Authors: Sesia M; Sabatti C, Candès E.
      Pages: 1 - 18
      Abstract: SUMMARYModern scientific studies often require the identification of a subset of explanatory variables. Several statistical methods have been developed to automate this task, and the framework of knockoffs has been proposed as a general solution for variable selection under rigorous Type I error control, without relying on strong modelling assumptions. In this paper, we extend the methodology of knockoffs to problems where the distribution of the covariates can be described by a hidden Markov model. We develop an exact and efficient algorithm to sample knockoff variables in this setting and then argue that, combined with the existing selective framework, this provides a natural and powerful tool for inference in genome-wide association studies with guaranteed false discovery rate control. We apply our method to datasets on Crohn’s disease and some continuous phenotypes.

  • Nonparametric regression with adaptive truncation via a convex
           hierarchical penalty
    • Authors: Haris A; Shojaie A, Simon N.
      Pages: 87 - 107
      Abstract: SUMMARYWe consider the problem of nonparametric regression with a potentially large number of covariates. We propose a convex, penalized estimation framework that is particularly well suited to high-dimensional sparse additive models and combines the appealing features of finite basis representation and smoothing penalties. In the case of additive models, a finite basis representation provides a parsimonious representation for fitted functions but is not adaptive when component functions possess different levels of complexity. In contrast, a smoothing spline-type penalty on the component functions is adaptive but does not provide a parsimonious representation. Our proposal simultaneously achieves parsimony and adaptivity in a computationally efficient way. We demonstrate these properties through empirical studies and show that our estimator converges at the minimax rate for functions within a hierarchical class. We further establish minimax rates for a large class of sparse additive models. We also develop an efficient algorithm that scales similarly to the lasso with the number of covariates and sample size.

  • Constrained likelihood for reconstructing a directed acyclic Gaussian
    • Authors: Yuan Y; Shen X, Pan W, et al.
      Pages: 109 - 125
      Abstract: SUMMARYDirected acyclic graphs are widely used to describe directional pairwise relations. Such relations are estimated by reconstructing a directed acyclic graph’s structure, which is challenging when the ordering of nodes of the graph is unknown. In such a situation, existing methods such as the neighbourhood and search-and-score methods have high estimation errors or computational complexities, especially when a local or sequential approach is used to enumerate edge directions by testing or optimizing a criterion locally, as a local method may break down even for moderately sized graphs. We propose a novel approach to simultaneously identifying all estimable directed edges and model parameters, using constrained maximum likelihood with nonconvex constraints. We develop a constraint reduction method that constructs a set of active constraints from super-exponentially many constraints. This, coupled with an alternating direction method of multipliers and a difference convex method, permits efficient computation for large-graph learning. We show that the proposed method consistently reconstructs identifiable directions of the true graph and achieves the optimal performance in terms of parameter estimation. Numerically, the method compares favourably with competitors. A protein network is analysed to demonstrate that the proposed method can make a difference in identifying the network’s structure.

  • Extremal behaviour of aggregated data with an application to downscaling
    • Authors: Engelke S; De Fondeville R, Oesting M.
      Pages: 127 - 144
      Abstract: SUMMARYThe distribution of spatially aggregated data from a stochastic process $X$ may exhibit tail behaviour different from that of its marginal distributions. For a large class of aggregating functionals $\ell$ we introduce the $\ell$-extremal coefficient, which quantifies this difference as a function of the extremal spatial dependence in $X$. We also obtain the joint extremal dependence for multiple aggregation functionals applied to the same process. Formulae for the $\ell$-extremal coefficients and multivariate dependence structures are derived in important special cases. The results provide a theoretical link between the extremal distribution of the aggregated data and the corresponding underlying process, which we exploit to develop a method for statistical downscaling. We apply our framework to downscale daily temperature maxima in the south of France from a gridded dataset and use our model to generate high-resolution maps of the warmest day during the $2003$ heatwave.

  • Recovering covariance from functional fragments
    • Authors: Descary M; Panaretos V.
      Pages: 145 - 160
      Abstract: SUMMARYWe consider nonparametric estimation of a covariance function on the unit square, given a sample of discretely observed fragments of functional data. When each sample path is observed only on a subinterval of length $\delta<1$, one has no statistical information on the unknown covariance outside a $\delta$-band around the diagonal. The problem seems unidentifiable without parametric assumptions, but we show that nonparametric estimation is feasible under suitable smoothness and rank conditions on the unknown covariance. This remains true even when the observations are discrete, and we give precise deterministic conditions on how fine the observation grid needs to be relative to the rank and fragment length for identifiability to hold true. We show that our conditions translate the estimation problem to a low-rank matrix completion problem, construct a nonparametric estimator in this vein, and study its asymptotic properties. We illustrate the numerical performance of our method on real and simulated data.

  • Classification of functional fragments by regularized linear classifiers
           with domain selection
    • Authors: Kraus D; Stefanucci M.
      Pages: 161 - 180
      Abstract: SUMMARYWe consider classification of functional data into two groups by linear classifiers based on one-dimensional projections of functions. We reformulate the task of finding the best classifier as an optimization problem and solve it by the conjugate gradient method with early stopping, the principal component method, and the ridge method. We study the empirical version with finite training samples consisting of incomplete functions observed on different subsets of the domain and show that the optimal, possibly zero, misclassification probability can be achieved in the limit along a possibly nonconvergent empirical regularization path. We propose a domain extension and selection procedure that finds the best domain beyond the common observation domain of all curves. In a simulation study we compare the different regularization methods and investigate the performance of domain selection. Our method is illustrated on a medical dataset, where we observe a substantial improvement of classification accuracy due to domain extension.

  • Goodness-of-fit tests for the cure rate in a mixture cure model
    • Authors: Müller U; Van Keilegom I.
      Pages: 211 - 227
      Abstract: SUMMARYWe consider models for time-to-event data that allow that an event, e.g., a relapse of a disease, never occurs for a certain percentage $p$ of the population, called the cure rate. We suppose that these data are subject to random right censoring and we model the data using a mixture cure model, in which the survival function of the uncured subjects is left unspecified. The aim is to test whether the cure rate $p$, as a function of the covariates, satisfies a certain parametric model. To do so, we propose a test statistic that is inspired by a goodness-of-fit test for a regression function due to Härdle & Mammen (1993). We show that the statistic is asymptotically normally distributed under the null hypothesis, that the model is correctly specified, and under local alternatives. A bootstrap procedure is proposed to implement the test. The good performance of the approach is confirmed with simulations. For illustration we apply the test to data on the times between first and second births.
