On the estimation of variance parameters in non-standard generalised linear mixed models: Application to penalised smoothing
(Statistics and Computing, 2018-01-24)
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 ...
Smooth additive mixed models for predicting aboveground biomass
(Journal of Agricultural, Biological and Environmental Statistics, 2016-12-01)
Aboveground biomass estimation in short-rotation forestry plantations is an essential step in the development of crop management strategies as well as allowing the economic viability of the crop to be determined prior to ...
