In particular you may wish to click on the 30th Annual Summer Institute of Applied Statistics link just mentioned; it leads to a page where you can download R code, data, and background information (all prepared by Thanasis) for fitting a location-normal Dirichlet process mixture model.
Our proposed graduate program is innovative in several ways: for example, in their coursework the graduate students in this program will develop skills of a fusion character that intertwine strengths in statistics and stochastic modeling with methods of applied mathematical modeling, and they will pursue their dissertation work by becoming deeply immersed in important problems in science or engineering as the basis of the innovative theories and methods they develop.
The latest version of the proposal is available for downloading in PDF format (248 pages; 3,060k) here.
