主讲人简介

马彦源是宾夕法利亚州立大学统计系教授,主要研究方向是半参数。

Yanyuan Ma is a professor at the statistics department of the Pennsylvania State University, and her main research interest is in semiparametrics.

 

内容提要:

We propose a general index model for survival data, which generalizes many commonly used semiparametric survival models and belongs to the framework of dimension reduction. Using a combination of geometric approach in semiparametrics and martingale treatment in survival data analysis, we devise estimation procedures that are feasible and do not require covariate-independent censoring as assumed in many dimension reduction methods for censored survival data. We establish the root-$n$ consistency and asymptotic normality of the proposed estimators and derive the most efficient estimator in this class for the general index model. Numerical experiments are carried out to demonstrate the empirical performance of the proposed estimators and an application to an AIDS data further illustrates the usefulness of the work.
