Statistics Seminar: Kolassa -- Infinite Parameter Estimates in Polytomous Regression

John Kolassa Department of Statistics Rutgers University 

Location: Carslaw 273 

Time: 2pm Friday, March 23, 2012 

Title: Infinite Parameter Estimates in Polytomous Regression 

Abstract: We discuss a variety of methods for inference for polytomous regression
models,when model parameters are estimated at infinity.  The suggested result is a
special case of the method of Kolassa (1997).  Competing techniques, including that of
Firth (1993), are described.  As time permits, connections to proportional hazards
regression are discussed.  Join work with Juan Zhang.
