Bayesian hierarchical modelling of growth curve derivatives via sequences of quotient differences
Page, G.L.; RodríguezÁlvarez, M.X.; Lee, D.J. (202001)Growth curve studies are typically conducted to evaluate differences between group or treatmentspecific curves. Most analyses focus solely on the growth curves, but it has been argued that the derivative of growth curves ... 
Bayesian nonparametric inference for the covariateadjusted ROC curve
Inacio de Carvalho, V.; RodríguezÁlvarez, M.X. (20180530)Accurate diagnosis of disease is of fundamental importance in clinical practice and medical research. Before a medical diagnostic test is routinely used in practice, its ability to distinguish between diseased and nondiseased ... 
Bootstrapbased procedures for inference in nonparametric receiveroperating characteristic curve regression analysis
RodríguezÁlvarez, M.X.; RocaPardiñas, J.; CadarsoSuárez, C.; Tahoces, P.G. (2017)Prior to using a diagnostic test in a routine clinical setting, the rigorous evaluation of its diagnostic accuracy is essential. The receiveroperating characteristic curve is the measure of accuracy most widely used for ... 
Bootstrapbased procedures for inference in nonparametric ROC regression analysis
RodríguezÁlvarez, M.X.; RocaPardiñas, J.; CadarsoSuárez, C.; Tahoces, P.G. (20160630)Before the use of a diagnostic test in a routine clinical setting, the rigorous evaluation of its diagnostic accuracy is an essential step. The receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve is the measure of accuracy most ... 
Comparison of two discrimination indexes in the categorisation of continuous predictors in timetoevent studies
Barrio, I.; RodríguezÁlvarez, M.X.; MeiraMachado, L.; Esteban, C.; Arostegui, I. (201704)The Cox proportional hazards model is the most widely used survival prediction model for analysing timetoevent data. To measure the discrimination ability of a survival model the concordance probability index is widely ... 
Correcting for spatial heterogeneity in plant breeding experiments with Psplines
RodríguezÁlvarez, M.X.; Boer, M.P.; van Eeuwijk, F.A.; Eilers, P.H.C. (20171027)An important aim of the analysis of agricultural field experiments is to obtain good predictions for genotypic performance, by correcting for spatial effects. In practice these corrections turn out to be complicated, since ... 
Fast algorithm for smoothing parameter selection in multidimensional Psplines
RodríguezÁlvarez, M.X.; Lee, D.J.; Kneib, T.; Durban, M.; Eilers, P.H.C. (20151231)A new computational algorithm for estimating the smoothing parameters of a multidimensional penalized spline generalized model with anisotropic penalty is presented. This new proposal is based on the mixed model representation ... 
Fast estimation of multidimensional adaptive Pspline models
RodríguezÁlvarez, M.X.; Durban, M.; Lee, D.J.; Eilers, P.H.C. (20161021)A fast and stable algorithm for estimating multidimensional adaptive Pspline models is presented. We call it as Separation of Overlapping Penalties (SOP) as it is an extension of the Separation of Anisotropic Penalties ... 
Fast smoothing parameter separation in multidimensional generalized Psplines: the SAP algorithm
RodríguezÁlvarez, M.X.; Lee, D.J.; Kneib, T.; Durban, M.; Eilers, P.H.C. (20141231)A new computational algorithm for estimating the smoothing parameters of a multidimensional penalized spline generalized linear model with anisotropic penalty is presented. This new proposal is based on the mixed model ... 
Modelling spatial trends in sorghum breeding field trials using a twodimensional Pspline mixed model
Velazco, J.G.; RodríguezÁlvarez, M.X.; Boer, M.P.; Jordan, D.R.; Eilers, P.H.C.; Malosetti, M.; van Eeuwijk, F. (20170403)Adjustment for spatial trends in plant breeding field trials is essential for efficient evaluation and selection of genotypes. Current mixed model methods of spatial analysis are based on a multistep modelling process ... 
A new approach to categorize continuous variables in prediction models: Proposal and validation
Barrio, I.; Arostegui, I.; RodríguezÁlvarez, M.X.; Quintana, J.M. (201712)When developing prediction models for application in clinical practice, health practitioners usually categorise clinical variables that are continuous in nature. Although categorisation is not regarded as advisable from ... 
On the estimation of variance parameters in nonstandard generalised linear mixed models: Application to penalised smoothing
RodríguezÁlvarez, M.X.; Durban, M.; Lee, D.J.; Eilers, P.H.C. (20180124)We present a novel method for the estimation of variance parameters in generalised linear mixed models. The method has its roots in Harville (1977)'s work, but it is able to deal with models that have a precision matrix ... 
Sample size impact on the categorisation of continuous variables in clinical prediction
Barrio, I.; Arostegui, I.; RodríguezÁlvarez, M.X. (201712)Recent advances in information technologies are generating a growth in the amount of available biomedical data. In this paper, we studied the impact sample size may have on the categorisation of a continuous predictor ...
