littler 0.2.0

We are happy to announce a new release of littler.

A few minor things have changes since the last release: max-heap image
  • A few new examples were added or updated, including use of the fabulous new docopt package by Edwin de Jonge which makes command-line parsing a breeze.
  • Other new examples show simple calls to help with sweave, knitr, roxygen2, Rcpp's attribute compilation, and more.
  • We also wrote an entirely new webpage with usage example.
  • A new option -d | --datastdin was added which will read stdin into a data.frame variable X.
  • The repository has been move to this GitHub repo.
  • With that, the build process was updated both throughout but also to reflect the current git commit at time of build.

Full details are provided at the ChangeLog

The code is available via the GitHub repo, from tarballs off my littler page and the local directory here. A fresh package will got to Debian's incoming queue shortly as well.

Comments and suggestions are welcome via the mailing list or issue tracker at the GitHub repo.

New package Tampo with initial version 1.0

Package: Tampo
Type: Package
Title: Tools for the Analysis of Microchemical Profiles from Otoliths
Version: 1.0
Date: 2014-08-28
Author: Matthias Vignon
Maintainer: Matthias Vignon
Description: Facilitates analyzing microchemical profiles (both mono- and multielemental composition) from fish otoliths (stones from the inner ear) using a recursive partitioning approach that can accommodate some form of user-specified constraints. It also allows extracting environmental histories from otolith based on typical elemental sequences generated using methods such as LA-ICPMS. Microchemical analysis is widely used in fisheries management and fisheries biology to identify stocks and characterize fish movements but the provided functions may be considered from the more general perspective of the chronological clustering of multivariate time series using piecewise constant regressions.

Maintainer: Antonio Coppola
Description: A wrapper built around the libLBFGS optimization library by Naoaki Okazaki. The lbfgs package implements both the Limited-memory Broyden-Fletcher-Goldfarb-Shanno (L-BFGS) and the Orthant-Wise Quasi-Newton Limited-Memory (OWL-QN) optimization algorithms. The L-BFGS algorithm solves the problem of minimizing an objective, given its gradient, by iteratively computing approximations of the inverse Hessian matrix. The OWL-QN algorithm finds the optimum of an objective plus the L1-norm of the problem's parameters. The package offers a fast and memory-efficient implementation of these optimization routines, which is particularly suited for high-dimensional problems.

New package archivist with initial version 1.0

Package: archivist
Version: 1.0
Type: Package
Title: Tools for storing, restoring and searching for R objects

Description: Data exploration and modelling is a process in which a lot of data artifacts are produced. Artifacts like: subsets, data aggregates, plots, statistical models, different versions of data sets and different versions of results. The more projects we work with the more artifacts are produced and the harder it is to manage these artifacts. Archivist helps to store and manage artifacts created in R. Archivist allows you to store selected artifacts as a binary files together with their metadata and relations. Archivist allows to share artifacts with others, either through shared folder or github. Archivist allows to look for already created artifacts by using it's class, name, date of the creation or other properties. Makes it easy to restore such artifacts. Archivist allows to check if new artifact is the exact copy that was produced some time ago. That might be useful either for testing or caching.

Description: Functions for age-period-cohort analysis. The data can be organised in matrices indexed by age-cohort, age-period or cohort-period. The data can include dose and response or just doses. The statistical model is a generalized linear model (GLM) allowing for 3,2,1 or 0 of the age-period-cohort factors. The canonical parametrisation of Kuang, Nielsen and Nielsen (2008) is used. Thus, the analysis does not rely on ad hoc identification.

Monotonic Sequence

Analysis with Programming has recently been accepted as a contributing blog on Mathblogging.org, a blogosphere aiming to be the best place to discover mathematical writing on the web. And as a first post, being a member of the said site, I will do proving on the theory of probability. This problem by the way, is part of my first homework on my masteral. This is my solution and if you find errors, do let me know.

Problem

  1. If $\{A_k\}$ is either expanding or contracting, we say that it is monotone, and for monotone sequence $\{A_k\}$, $\displaystyle\lim_{n\to \infty} A_n$ is defined as follows: \begin{equation}\nonumber \lim_{n\to \infty} A_n = \begin{cases} \displaystyle\bigcup_{k=1}^\infty A_k&\text{if}\;\{A_k\}\;\text{is expanding}\\[0.3cm] \displaystyle\bigcap_{k=1}^\infty A_k&\text{if}\;\{A_k\}\;\text{is contracting} \end{cases}. \end{equation} Prove the above equation.

Solution

  1. Proof. If $\{A_k\}$ is either expanding or contracting, then for an infinite sequence $A_1,A_2,\cdots$ one can define two events from $\displaystyle\lim_{n\to \infty}A_n$, i.e. \begin{equation} \label{eq:limAn} \lim_{n\to \infty} A_n = \begin{cases} \displaystyle\lim_{n\to\infty}\sup_{k\in [n,\infty)}\{A_k\}\\[0.3cm] \displaystyle\lim_{n\to\infty}\inf_{k\in [n, \infty)}\{A_k\} \end{cases}. \end{equation} Now the $\displaystyle\sup_{k\in [n,\infty)} \{A_k\}$ and $\displaystyle\inf_{k\in [n,\infty)} \{A_k\}$ are defined as follows: \begin{equation}\nonumber \displaystyle\sup_{k\in [n,\infty)} \{A_k\} = \displaystyle\bigcup_{k=n}^{\infty} A_k,\quad\mathrm{and}\quad \displaystyle\inf_{k\in [n,\infty)} \{A_k\} = \displaystyle\bigcap_{k=n}^{\infty} A_k. \end{equation} Hence, \begin{equation}\nonumber \displaystyle\lim_{n\to \infty}\sup_{k\in [n,\infty)} \{A_k\} = \displaystyle\lim_{n\to \infty}\bigcup_{k=n}^{\infty} A_k,\quad\mathrm{and}\quad \displaystyle\lim_{n\to \infty}\inf_{k\in [n,\infty)} \{A_k\} = \displaystyle\lim_{n\to \infty}\bigcap_{k=n}^{\infty} A_k. \end{equation} Since $\displaystyle\bigcup_{k=n}^{\infty} A_k$ is an event that "at least one $A_k$ occurs", then $\displaystyle\bigcup_{k=n}^{\infty}A_k$ occurs for all $n$. This statement simply defines the intersection, and thus we have \begin{equation} \label{eq:sup} \displaystyle\lim_{n\to \infty}\sup_{k\in [n,\infty)} \{A_k\} = \displaystyle\lim_{n\to \infty}\bigcup_{k=n}^{\infty} A_k = \displaystyle\bigcap_{n=1}^{\infty}\bigcup_{k=n}^{\infty} A_k. \end{equation} Now for $\displaystyle\bigcap_{k=n}^{\infty} A_k$, it can be observed that, for every $n$, $\{A_k\}$ must occur for all $k$, $k \in[n,\infty)$. This statement is sometimes not satisfied on some $n$, wherein an empty set is obtained if no common values between the sequence $\{A_k\}$ are observed. Therefore the event, $\displaystyle\bigcap_{k=n}^{\infty} A_k$ occurs for some $n$, that is, \begin{equation} \label{eq:inf} \displaystyle\lim_{n\to \infty}\inf_{k\in [n,\infty)} \{A_k\} = \displaystyle\lim_{n\to \infty}\bigcap_{k=n}^{\infty} A_k = \displaystyle\bigcup_{n=1}^{\infty}\bigcap_{k=n}^{\infty} A_k. \end{equation} Finally, Equations (\ref{eq:sup}) and (\ref{eq:inf}) can now be equated to Equation (\ref{eq:limAn}), \begin{equation} \lim_{n\to \infty} A_n = \begin{cases} \displaystyle\lim_{n\to\infty}\sup_{k\in [n,\infty)}\{A_k\} = \displaystyle\bigcap_{n=1}^{\infty}\bigcup_{k=n}^{\infty} A_k \\[0.3cm] \displaystyle\lim_{n\to\infty}\inf_{k\in [n, \infty)}\{A_k\} = \displaystyle\bigcup_{n=1}^{\infty}\bigcap_{k=n}^{\infty} A_k \end{cases}.\nonumber \end{equation} Now if the sequence $\{A_k\}$ is expanding, then the inner union $\left(\displaystyle\bigcup_{k=n}^{\infty} A_k\right)$ in $\displaystyle\lim_{n\to\infty}\sup_{k\in [n, \infty)}\{A_k\}$ remains the same independently of $n$, so that $\displaystyle\lim_{n\to\infty}\sup_{k\in [n, \infty)}\{A_k\} = \displaystyle\bigcup_{k=1}^{\infty} A_k$. On the other hand, the inner intersection $\left(\displaystyle\bigcap_{k=n}^{\infty} A_k\right)$ in $\displaystyle\lim_{n\to\infty}\inf_{k\in [n, \infty)}\{A_k\}$, is equal to $A_n$, implying that the limit is $\displaystyle\bigcup_{n=1}^{\infty} A_n$. Since both $\displaystyle\lim_{n\to\infty}\sup_{k\in [n, \infty)}\{A_k\}$ and $\displaystyle\lim_{n\to\infty}\inf_{k\in [n, \infty)}\{A_k\}$ converge to the same event, then that proves the first part of the problem.

    If the sequence $\{A_k\}$ is contracting. Then the inner union $\left(\displaystyle\bigcup_{k=n}^{\infty} A_k\right)$ in $\displaystyle\lim_{n\to\infty}\sup_{k\in [n, \infty)}\{A_k\}$ is equal to $A_n$, so that $\displaystyle\lim_{n\to\infty}\sup_{k\in [n, \infty)}\{A_k\} = \displaystyle\bigcap_{n=1}^{\infty} A_n$. On the other hand, the inner intersection $\left(\displaystyle\bigcap_{k=n}^{\infty} A_k\right)$ in $\displaystyle\lim_{n\to\infty}\inf_{k\in [n, \infty)}\{A_k\}$, remains the same independently of $n$, and thus the limit is $\displaystyle\bigcap_{k=1}^{\infty} A_k$. Since both $\displaystyle\lim_{n\to\infty}\sup_{k\in [n, \infty)}\{A_k\}$ and $\displaystyle\lim_{n\to\infty}\inf_{k\in [n, \infty)}\{A_k\}$ converge to the same event, then that proves the second part of the problem.$\hspace{12cm}\blacksquare$

New package replicationInterval with initial version 0.1

Package: replicationInterval
Type: Package
Title: Replication Interval Functions
Version: 0.1
Date: 2014-08-27
Author: David Stanley
Maintainer: David Stanley
Description: A common problem faced by journal reviewers and authors is the question of whether the results of a replication study are consistent with the original published study. One solution to this problem is to examine the effect size from the published study and generate the range of effect sizes that could reasonably be obtained (due to random sampling) in a replication attempt (i.e., calculate a replication interval). If a replication effect size falls outside the replication interval then that value could not have occurred to due the effects of sampling error alone. Alternatively, if a replication effect size falls within the replication interval then the replication results could have reasonably occurred due to the effects of sampling error alone. This package has functions that calculate the replication interval for two different types of effect sizes (i.e., correlation, Cohen's d).

Bioconductor Project Working Papers

Partially-Latent Class Models (pLCM) for Case-Control Studies of Childhood Pneumonia Etiology

In population studies on the etiology of disease, one goal is the estimation of the fraction of cases attributable to each of several causes. For example, pneumonia is a clinical diagnosis of lung infection that may be caused by viral, bacterial, fungal, or other pathogens. The study of pneumonia etiology is challenging because directly sampling from the lung to identify the etiologic pathogen is not standard clinical practice in most settings. Instead, measurements from multiple peripheral specimens are made. This paper considers the problem of estimating the population etiology distribution and the individual etiology probabilities. We formulate the scientific problem in statistical terms as estimating the posterior distribution of mixing weights and latent class indicators under a partially-latent class model (pLCM) that combines heterogeneous measurements with different error rates obtained from a case-control study. We introduce the pLCM as an extension of the latent class model. We also introduce graphical displays of the population data and inferred latent-class frequencies. The methods are illustrated with simulated and real data sets. The paper closes with a brief description of extensions of the pLCM to the regression setting and to the case where conditional independence among the measures is relaxed.
