1. Composite Likelihood Estimation for Latent Variable Models with Ordinal and Continuous, or Ranking Variables
Sammanfattning : The estimation of latent variable models with ordinal and continuous, or ranking variables is the research focus of this thesis. The existing estimation methods are discussed and a composite likelihood approach is developed. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Dynamic panel data models are widely used by econometricians to study over time the economics of, for example, people, firms, regions, or countries, by pooling information over the cross-section. Though much of the panel research concerns inference in stationary models, macroeconomic data such as GDP, prices, and interest rates are typically trending over time and require in one way or another a nonstationary analysis.

Sammanfattning : An important design property of steel is the fatigue limit, i.e. the load level where a specimen has infinite life. For the material it can also be defined an endurance limit, which is the stress level at which the specimen has a certain life. LÄS MER
4. Feasible computation of generalized linear mixed models with application to credit risk modelling
Sammanfattning : This thesis deals with developing and testing feasible computational procedures to facilitate the estimation of and carry out the prediction with the generalized linear mixed model (GLMM) with a scope of applying them to large data sets. The work of this thesis is motivated from an issue arising incredit risk modelling. LÄS MER
