In this article, we consider multi-modal circular data and nonparametric inference. We introduce a doubly flexible method based on Dirichlet process circular mixtures in which parameter assumptions are relaxed. We assess and discuss in simulation studies the effi-ciency of the proposed extension relative to the standard finite mixture applications in the analysis of multi-modal circular data. The real data application shows that this relaxed approach is promising for making important contributions to our understanding of many real-life phenomena particularly in environmental sciences such as animal orientations.

A new multimodal and asymmetric bivariate circular distribution
Hassanzadeh, Fatemeh; Kalaylioglu, Zeynep (2018-09-01)
Multimodal and asymmetric bivariate circular data arise in several different disciplines and fitting appropriate distribution plays an important role in the analysis of such data. In this paper, we propose a new bivariate circular distribution which can be used to model both asymmetric and multimodal bivariate circular data simultaneously. In fact the proposed density covers unimodality as well as multimodality, symmetry as well as asymmetry of circular bivariate data. A number of properties of the proposed...
A Hybrid Computational Method based on Convex Optimizationfor Outlier Problems
Yerlikaya Ozkurt, Fatma; Askan Gündoğan, Ayşegül; Weber, Gerhard Wiehelm (2015-11-01)
Statistical modeling plays a central role for any prediction problem of interest.However, predictive models may give misleading results when the data containoutliers. In many applications, it is important to identify and treat the outlierswithout direct elimination. To handle such issues, a hybrid computational methodbased on conic quadratic programming is introduced and employed onearthquake ground motion data set. Results are compared against widely-usedground motion prediction models.
A marginalized multilevel model for bivariate longitudinal binary data
İnan, Gül; İlk Dağ, Özlem; Department of Statistics (2014)
This thesis study considers analysis of bivariate longitudinal binary data. We propose a model based on marginalized multilevel model framework. The proposed model consists of two levels such that the first level associates the marginal mean of responses with covariates through a logistic regression model and the second level includes subject/time specific random intercepts within a probit regression model. The covariance matrix of multiple correlated time-specific random intercepts for each subject is assu...
An approach to the mean shift outlier model by Tikhonov regularization and conic programming
TAYLAN, PAKİZE; Yerlikaya-Oezkurt, Fatma; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm (IOS Press, 2014-01-01)
In statistical research, regression models based on data play a central role; one of these models is the linear regression model. However, this model may give misleading results when data contain outliers. The outliers in linear regression can be resolved in two stages: by using the Mean Shift Outlier Model (MSOM) and by providing a new solution for this model. First, we construct a Tikhonov regularization problem for the MSOM. Then, we treat this problem using convex optimization techniques, specifically c...
