Download An Introduction to Latent Variable Growth Curve Modeling: by Terry E. Duncan PDF

By Terry E. Duncan

This publication offers a complete creation to latent variable development curve modeling (LGM) for examining repeated measures. It offers the statistical foundation for LGM and its quite a few methodological extensions, together with a couple of sensible examples of its use. it truly is designed to use the reader’s familiarity with research of variance and structural equation modeling (SEM) in introducing LGM options. pattern information, syntax, enter and output, are supplied for EQS, Amos, LISREL, and Mplus at the book’s CD. during the ebook, the authors current numerous LGM concepts which are worthy for plenty of diversified study designs, and diverse figures offer precious diagrams of the examples.

Updated all through, the second one version positive factors 3 new chapters—growth modeling with ordered specific variables, progress combination modeling, and pooled interrupted time sequence LGM ways. Following a brand new association, the ebook now covers the improvement of the LGM, through chapters on multiple-group concerns (analyzing development in a number of populations, speeded up designs, and multi-level longitudinal approaches), after which distinctive themes similar to lacking information types, LGM energy and Monte Carlo estimation, and latent progress interplay versions. The version requirements formerly incorporated within the appendices are actually to be had at the CD so the reader can extra simply adapt the versions to their very own research.

This sensible consultant is perfect for a variety of social and behavioral researchers drawn to the size of switch over the years, together with social, developmental, organizational, academic, client, character and medical psychologists, sociologists, and quantitative methodologists, in addition to for a textual content on latent variable progress curve modeling or as a complement for a direction on multivariate information. A prerequisite of graduate point information is recommended.

Download Statistical Methods for Stochastic Differential Equations by Mathieu Kessler, Alexander Lindner, Michael Sorensen PDF

By Mathieu Kessler, Alexander Lindner, Michael Sorensen

The 7th quantity within the SemStat sequence, Statistical equipment for Stochastic Differential Equations offers present examine tendencies and up to date advancements in statistical equipment for stochastic differential equations. Written to be available to either new scholars and professional researchers, each one self-contained bankruptcy begins with introductions to the subject to hand and builds steadily in the direction of discussing fresh learn.

The e-book covers Wiener-driven equations in addition to stochastic differential equations with jumps, together with continuous-time ARMA procedures and COGARCH techniques. It offers a spectrum of estimation equipment, together with nonparametric estimation in addition to parametric estimation in line with chance tools, estimating capabilities, and simulation recommendations. chapters are dedicated to high-frequency information. Multivariate types also are thought of, together with partly saw structures, asynchronous sampling, assessments for simultaneous jumps, and multiscale diffusions.

Statistical tools for Stochastic Differential Equations turns out to be useful to the theoretical statistician and the probabilist who works in or intends to paintings within the box, in addition to to the utilized statistician or monetary econometrician who wishes the easy methods to learn organic or monetary time sequence.
