We meet on Thursdays from 3:00-4:00 in Padelford C-301. Our theme for this quarter is computational methods, which is a broad theme that will include methods for dimension reduction, data assimilation, and anything else we can think of. However, nobody said we need to always stick to the theme, so feel free to select a paper outside of the theme if you wish.
The following is the current schedule of papers and presenters. We will sign up for presentation slots during our first meeting and as necessary thereafter.
|January 12||Jim Faulkner||Overview -- no paper to read [Slides]|
|January 19||Johnny Paige||Nychka et al. 2014 and LatticeKrig package [Slides] [R script]|
|January 26||Hannah Director||Data assimilation following review by Nychka et al. or Chapter 27 of the Handbook of Spatial Statistics|
|February 2||John Best||Process Convolutions -- paper by Calder and Cressie (2007)|
|February 9||Branden Olson||Berrocal et al 2010 "A spatio-temporal downscaler for outputs from numerical models"|
|February 16||Jim Faulkner||Cressie and Johannesson 2008 "Fixed rank kriging for very large spatial data sets" [Slides]|
|February 23||--||No meeting this week|
|March 2||Johnny Paige||Gotway and Young (2002) Combining incompatible spatial data. [Slides]|
|March 9||NA||Discussion of topics for next quarter|
