Analysis of differential item functioning (DIF) using hierarchical logistic regression models
 Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics
"... Over the past 25 years a range of parametric and nonparametric methods have been developed for analyzing Differential Item Functioning (DIF). These procedures are typically performed for each item individually or for small numbers of related items. Because the analytic procedures focus on individua ..."

on individual items, it has been difficult to pool information across items to identify potential sources of DIF analytically. In this article, we outline an approach to DIF analysis using hierarchical logistic regression that makes it possible to combine results of logistic regression analyses across items
Additive Logistic Regression: a Statistical View of Boosting
 Annals of Statistics
, 1998
"... Boosting (Freund & Schapire 1996, Schapire & Singer 1998) is one of the most important recent developments in classification methodology. The performance of many classification algorithms can often be dramatically improved by sequentially applying them to reweighted versions of the input dat ..."

be viewed as an approximation to additive modeling on the logistic scale using maximum Bernoulli likelihood as a criterion. We develop more direct approximations and show that they exhibit nearly identical results to boosting. Direct multiclass generalizations based on multinomial likelihood are derived
Quantile Regression
 JOURNAL OF ECONOMIC PERSPECTIVES—VOLUME 15, NUMBER 4—FALL 2001—PAGES 143–156
, 2001
"... We say that a student scores at the fifth quantile of a standardized exam if he performs better than the proportion � of the reference group of students and worse than the proportion (1–�). Thus, half of students perform better than the median student and half perform worse. Similarly, the quartiles ..."

, the quartiles divide the population into four segments with equal proportions of the reference population in each segment. The quintiles divide the population into five parts; the deciles into ten parts. The quantiles, or percentiles, or occasionally fractiles, refer to the general case. Quantile regression
On Discriminative vs. Generative classifiers: A comparison of logistic regression and naive Bayes
, 2001
"... We compare discriminative and generative learning as typified by logistic regression and naive Bayes. We show, contrary to a widely held belief that discriminative classifiers are almost always to be preferred, that there can often be two distinct regimes of performance as the training set size is i ..."

Regression Shrinkage and Selection Via the Lasso
 Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, Series B
, 1994
"... We propose a new method for estimation in linear models. The "lasso" minimizes the residual sum of squares subject to the sum of the absolute value of the coefficients being less than a constant. Because of the nature of this constraint it tends to produce some coefficients that are exactl ..."

It produces interpretable models like subset selection and exhibits the stability of ridge regression. There is also

The group Lasso for logistic regression
 Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, Series B
, 2008
"... Summary. The group lasso is an extension of the lasso to do variable selection on (predefined) groups of variables in linear regression models. The estimates have the attractive property of being invariant under groupwise orthogonal reparameterizations. We extend the group lasso to logistic regressi ..."

Regularization paths for generalized linear models via coordinate descent
, 2009
"... We develop fast algorithms for estimation of generalized linear models with convex penalties. The models include linear regression, twoclass logistic regression, and multinomial regression problems while the penalties include ℓ1 (the lasso), ℓ2 (ridge regression) and mixtures of the two (the elastic ..."
