报告题目: Valid properties of truncated Student-t distribution with applications in the analysis of censored data

报告人: Guo-Liang TIAN, Professor of Statistics

报告摘要: Kim (2008) introduced an incorrect stochastic representation (SR) for the truncated Student-t (Tt) random variable. By pointing out that the gamma mixture based on a truncated normal distribution actually cannot result in a true Tt distribution, in this paper, we first propose three correct SRs and then recalculate the corresponding moments of the Tt distribution. Different from those derived from the invalid SR of Kim (2008), the correct moments of the Tt distribution play a crucial role in parameter estimations. Based on the proposed third SR and the correct expressions of truncated moments, expectation-maximization (EM) algorithms are developed for calculating the maximum likelihood estimates of parameters in the Tt distribution. Extensions to a Tt regression model and a t interval-censored regression model are provided as well. Simulated experiments are conducted to evaluate the performance of the proposed methods. Finally, two real data analyses corroborate the theoretical results.
