Price promotions are used extensively in marketing for one simple reason  consumers respond. The sales increase for a brand on promotion could be due to consumers accelerating their purchases (i.e., buying earlier than usual and/or buying more than usual) and/or consumers switching their choice from other brands. Purchase acceleration and brand switching relate to the primary demand and secondary demand effects of a promotion. Gupta (1988) captures these effects in a single model and decomposes a brand's total price elasticity into these components. He reports, for the coffee product category, that the main impact of a price promotion is on brand choice (84%), and that there is a smaller impact on purchase incidence (14%) and stockpiling (2%). In other words, the majority of the effect of a promotion is at the secondary level (84%) and there is a relatively small primary demand effect (16%). This paper reports the decomposition of total price elasticity for 173 brands acros...
Model selection in electromagnetic source analysis with an application to VEF’s

Abstract — In electromagnetic source analysis it is necessary to determine how many sources are required to describe the EEG or MEG adequately. Model selection procedures (MSP’s, or goodness of fit procedures) give an estimate of the required number of sources. Existing and new MSP’s are evaluated in different source and noise settings: two sources which are close or distant, and noise which is uncorrelated or correlated. The commonly used MSP residual variance is seen to be ineffective, that is it often selects too many sources. Alternatives like the adjusted Hotelling’s test, Bayes information criterion, and the Wald test on source amplitudes are seen to be effective. The adjusted Hotelling’s test is recommended if a conservative approach is taken, and MSP’s such as Bayes information criterion or the Wald test on source amplitudes are recommended if a more liberal approach is desirable. The MSP’s are applied to empirical data (visual evoked fields). I.

association in regression: the coefficient of determination revisited A. van der Linde * & G. Tutz** 10.6.2004 Universal coefficients of determination are investigated which quantify the strength of the relation between a vector of dependent variables Y and a vector of independent covariates X. They are defined as measures of dependence between Y and X through θ(x), with θ(x) parameterizing the conditional distribution of Y given X = x. If θ(x) involves unknown coefficients γ the definition is conditional on γ, and in practice γ, respectively the coefficient of determination has to be estimated. The estimates of quantities we propose generalize R2 in classical linear regression and are also related to other definitions previously suggested. Our definitions apply to generalized regression models with arbitrary link functions as well as multivariate and nonparametric regression. The definition and use of the proposed coefficients of determination is illustrated for several regression problems with simulated and real data sets.
