Diverse classifiers ensemble based on GMDH-type neural network algorithm for binary classification

Alpar, Reha
Group Method of Data Handling (GMDH) - type neural network algorithm is the heuristic self-organizing algorithm to model the sophisticated systems. In this study, we propose a new algorithm assembling different classifiers based on GMDH algorithm for binary classification. A Monte Carlo simulation study is conducted to compare diverse classifier ensemble based on GMDH (dce-GMDH) algorithm to the other well-known classifiers and to give recommendations for applied researchers on the selection of appropriate classifier under the different conditions. The simulation study illustrates the proposed approach is more successful than the other classifiers in classification in most scenarios generated under the different conditions. Our proposed method is compared to the other classifiers on Cleveland heart disease data. An implementation of the proposed approach is demonstrated on urine data. Moreover, the proposed algorithm is released under R package GMDH2 under the name of "dceGMDH" for implementation.


Extended lasso-type MARS (LMARS) model in the description of biological network
Agraz, Melih; Purutçuoğlu Gazi, Vilda (Informa UK Limited, 2019-01-02)
The multivariate adaptive regression splines (MARS) model is one of the well-known, additive non-parametric models that can deal with highly correlated and nonlinear datasets successfully. From our previous analyses, we have seen that lasso-type MARS (LMARS) can be a strong alternative of the Gaussian graphical model (GGM) which is a well-known probabilistic method to describe the steady-state behaviour of the complex biological systems via the lasso regression. In this study, we extend our original LMARS m...
MARS as an alternative approach of Gaussian graphical model for biochemical networks
AYYILDIZ DEMİRCİ, EZGİ; Agraz, Melih; Purutçuoğlu Gazi, Vilda (Informa UK Limited, 2017-01-01)
The Gaussian graphical model (GGM) is one of the well-known modelling approaches to describe biological networks under the steady-state condition via the precision matrix of data. In literature there are different methods to infer model parameters based on GGM. The neighbourhood selection with the lasso regression and the graphical lasso method are the most common techniques among these alternative estimation methods. But they can be computationally demanding when the system's dimension increases. Here, we ...
Domain-Structured Chaos in a Hopfield Neural Network
Akhmet, Marat (World Scientific Pub Co Pte Lt, 2019-12-30)
In this paper, we provide a new method for constructing chaotic Hopfield neural networks. Our approach is based on structuring the domain to form a special set through the discrete evolution of the network state variables. In the chaotic regime, the formed set is invariant under the system governing the dynamics of the neural network. The approach can be viewed as an extension of the unimodality technique for one-dimensional map, thereby generating chaos from higher-dimensional systems. We show that the dis...
Minimum variance quadratic unbiased estimation for the variance components in simple linear regression with onefold nested error
Gueven, Ilgehan (Informa UK Limited, 2006-01-01)
The explicit forms of the minimum variance quadratic unbiased estimators (MIVQUEs) of the variance components are given for simple linear regression with onefold nested error. The resulting estimators are more efficient as the ratio of the initial variance components estimates increases and are asymptotically efficient as the ratio tends to infinity.
Robust estimation and hypothesis testing under short-tailedness and inliers
Akkaya, Ayşen (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2005-06-01)
Estimation and hypothesis testing based on normal samples censored in the middle are developed and shown to be remarkably efficient and robust to symmetric short-tailed distributions and to inliers in a sample. This negates the perception that sample mean and variance are the best robust estimators in such situations (Tiku, 1980; Dunnett, 1982).
