Coupling physical understanding and statistical modeling to estimate ice jam flood frequency in the northern Peace-Athabasca Delta under climate change

26 Feb 2021record/4540802

This study contributes to this debate by addressing two questions: (1) what factors are most predictive of Peace River IJFs, and (2) how might climate change impact IJF frequency?

Computing Accurate Probabilistic Estimates of One-D Entropy from Equiprobable Random Samples

25 Feb 2021rehsani/Entropy

Results indicate, for the class of distributions tested, that the optimal number of quantile-spacings is a fixed fraction of the sample size (empirically determined to be ~0. 25-0. 35), and that this value is relatively insensitive to distributional form or sample size, providing a clear advantage over BC since hyperparameter tuning is not required.

Assessing the causal effects of a stochastic intervention in time series data: Are heat alerts effective in preventing deaths and hospitalizations?

20 Feb 2021wxwx1993/TS_Stochastic

To overcome this challenge, first we introduce a new class of causal estimands under a stochastic intervention (i. e., increasing the odds of issuing a heat alert) for a single time series corresponding to a given location.

Confidently Comparing Estimators with the c-value

19 Feb 2021blt2114/c_values

In response, we propose the "c-value" as a measure of confidence that a new estimate achieves smaller loss than an old estimate on a given dataset.
