The application of multistate Markov models to HIV disease progression.
Survival analysis is a well developed area which explores time to single event analysis. In some cases, however, such methods may not adequately capture the disease process as the disease progression may involve ...
Modelling longitudinal binary disease outcome data including the effect of covariates and extra variability.
The current work deals with modelling longitudinal or repeated non-Gaussian measurements for a respiratory disease. The analysis of longitudinal data for non-Gaussian binary disease outcome data can broadly be modeled ...
Applications of Levy processes in finance.
The option pricing theory set forth by Black and Scholes assumes that the underlying asset can be modeled by Geometric Brownian motion, with the Brownian motion being the driving force of uncertainty. Recent empirical studies, ...
A study of student academic performance at the University of Natal.
In this dissertation a study will be made of university performance in the Science Faculty of the University of Natal, Durban. In particular, we will develop models that can be used to predict the success rate of a student ...
The role of immune-genetic factors in modelling longitudinally measured HIV bio-markers including the handling of missing data.
Since the discovery of AIDS among the gay men in 1981 in the United States of America, it has become a major world pandemic with over 40 million individuals infected world wide. According to the Joint United Nations ...
Bayesian hierarchical spatial and spatio-temporal modeling and mapping of tuberculosis in Kenya.
Global spread of infectious disease threatens the well-being of human, domestic, and wildlife health. A proper understanding of global distribution of these diseases is an important part of disease management and policy ...
Multivariate time series modelling.
This research is based on a detailed description of model building for multivariate time series models. Under the assumption of stationarity, identification, estimation of the parameters and diagnostic checking for the ...
Statistical and mathematical modelling of HIV and AIDS, effect of reverse transcriptase inhibitors and causal inference for HIV mortality.
The HIV and AIDS epidemic has remained one of the leading causes of death in the world and has been destructive in Africa with Sub-Saharan Africa remaining the epidemiological locus of the epidemic. HIV and AIDS ...
