Impact of the Interdecadal Pacific Oscillation on Tropical Cyclone Activity in the North Atlantic and Eastern North Pacific.
Li, W; Li, L; Deng, Y (Sci Rep, 20150724)Tropical cyclones (TCs) are among the most devastating weather systems affecting the United States and Central America (USCA). Here we show that the Interdecadal Pacific Oscillation (IPO) strongly modulates TC activity over ... 
Lognormal and gamma mixed negative binomial regression
Zhou, M; Li, L; Dunson, D; Carin, L (Proceedings of the 29th International Conference on Machine Learning, ICML 2012, 20121010)In regression analysis of counts, a lack of simple and efficient algorithms for posterior computation has made Bayesian approaches appear unattractive and thus underdeveloped. We propose a lognormal and gamma mixed negative ...
