Some Theory and Applications of Probability in Quantum Mechanics
(University of Waterloo, 2012-07-19)
This thesis investigates three distinct facets of the theory of quantum information. The first two, quantum state estimation and quantum process estimation, are closely related and deal with the question of how to estimate ...
Assessing Binary Measurement Systems
(University of Waterloo, 2012-01-19)
Binary measurement systems (BMS) are widely used in both manufacturing industry and medicine. In industry, a BMS is often used to measure various characteristics of parts and then classify them as pass or fail, according ...
Variable Ranking by Solution-path Algorithms
(University of Waterloo, 2012-01-20)
Variable Selection has always been a very important problem in statistics. We often meet situations where a huge data set is given and we want to find out the relationship between the response and the corresponding variables. ...
Estimation and Hypothesis Testing for Stochastic Differential Equations with Time-Dependent Parameters
(University of Waterloo, 2012-09-21)
There are two sources of information available in empirical research in finance: one corresponding to historical data and the other to prices currently observed in the markets. When proposing a model, it is desirable to ...
Bayesian Inference for Stochastic Volatility Models
(University of Waterloo, 2012-09-26)
Stochastic volatility (SV) models provide a natural framework for a representation of time series for financial asset returns. As a result, they have become increasingly popular in the finance literature, although they ...
