Approximate Integrated Likelihood via ABC methods

March 13, 2014

My PhD student Clara Grazian just arXived this joint work with Brunero Liseo on using ABC for marginal density estimation. The idea in this paper is to produce an integrated likelihood approximation in intractable problems via the ratio both terms in the ratio being estimated from simulations, (with possible closed form for the denominator). Although […]

ABC for bivariate betas

February 19, 2014

Crakel and Flegal just arXived a short paper running ABC for doing inference on the parameters of two families of bivariate betas. And I could not but read it thru. And wonder why ABC was that necessary to handle the model. The said bivariate betas are defined from when and This makes each term in […]

ABC in Sydney, July 3-4, 2014!!!

February 12, 2014

After ABC in Paris in 2009, ABC in London in 2011, and ABC in Roma last year, things are accelerating since there will be—as I just learned—  an ABC in Sydney next July (not June as I originally typed, thanks Robin!). The workshop on the current developments of ABC methodology thus leaves Europe to go […]

insufficient statistics for ABC model choice

February 12, 2014

Julien Stoehr, Pierre Pudlo, and Lionel Cucala (I3M, Montpellier) arXived yesterday a paper entitled “Geometric summary statistics for ABC model choice between hidden Gibbs random fields“. Julien had presented this work at the MCMski 4 poster session.  The move to a hidden Markov random field means that our original approach with Aude Grelaud does not […]

ABC with indirect summary statistics

February 3, 2014

After reading Drovandi’s and Pettitt’s Bayesian Indirect Inference, I checked (in the plane to Birmingham) the earlier Gleim’s and Pigorsch’s Approximate Bayesian Computation with indirect summary statistics. The setting is indeed quite similar to the above, with a description of three ways of connecting indirect inference with ABC, albeit with a different range of illustrations. […]
