Prediction in Multilevel Logistic Regression
(TAYLOR & FRANCIS INC, 2010)
The purpose of this article is to present a new method to predict the response variable of an observation in a new cluster for a multilevel logistic regression. The central idea is based on the empirical best estimator for ...
Inflection and stability points of diphasic logistic analysis of growth
(Univ Sao Paolo, 2015-05-01)
Growth functions with inflection points following a diphasic model, can be adjusted by two approaches using segmented regression or the sum of two functions. In both cases, there are two functions, one for each phase, with ...
Relaxation to Fixed Points in the Logistic and Cubic Maps: Analytical and Numerical Investigation
(Mdpi Ag, 2013-10-01)
Convergence to a period one fixed point is investigated for both logistic and cubic maps. For the logistic map the relaxation to the fixed point is considered near a transcritical bifurcation while for the cubic map it is ...

Solving the Levins' paradox in the logistic model to the population growth
We introduce a new method to improve Markov maps by means of a Bayesian approach. The method starts from an initial map model, wherefrom a likelihood function is defined which is regulated by a temperature-like parameter. ...
