High dimensional graphs and variable selection with the Lasso
 ANNALS OF STATISTICS
, 2006
"... The pattern of zero entries in the inverse covariance matrix of a multivariate normal distribution corresponds to conditional independence restrictions between variables. Covariance selection aims at estimating those structural zeros from data. We show that neighborhood selection with the Lasso is a ..."

is a computationally attractive alternative to standard covariance selection for sparse highdimensional graphs. Neighborhood selection estimates the conditional independence restrictions separately for each node in the graph and is hence equivalent to variable selection for Gaussian linear models. We
Analysis, Modeling and Generation of SelfSimilar VBR Video Traffic
, 1994
"... We present a detailed statistical analysis of a 2hour long empirical sample of VBR video. The sample was obtained by applying a simple intraframe video compression code to an action movie. The main findings of our analysis are (1) the tail behavior of the marginal bandwidth distribution can be accu ..."

Testing for Common Trends
 Journal of the American Statistical Association
, 1988
"... Cointegrated multiple time series share at least one common trend. Two tests are developed for the number of common stochastic trends (i.e., for the order of cointegration) in a multiple time series with and without drift. Both tests involve the roots of the ordinary least squares coefficient matrix ..."

Economic time series are often modeled as having a unit root in their autoregressive representation, or (equivalently) as containing a stochastic

We propose a small number of basic concepts that can be used to explain the architecture of faulttolerant distributed systems and we discuss a list of architectural issues that we find useful to consider when designing or examining such systems. For each issue we present known solutions and design alternatives, we discuss their relative merits and we give examples of systems which adopt one approach or the other. The aim is to introduce some order in the complex discipline of designing and understanding faulttolerant distributed systems.

First published as an Advance Article on the web 3rd January 2001 The electrochemical generation and characterisation of a variety of oquinodimethanes (oQDMs) are described together with the outcome of preparative experiments in which they are key intermediates. The quinodimethanes are conveniently formed, in DMF, by both direct and redoxcatalysed electroreduction of 1,2bis(halomethyl)arenes. Their predominant reaction is polymerisation to poly(oxylylene) (oPX) polymers. In the presence of dienophiles the electrogenerated oQDMs may undergo efficient cycloaddition reaction and distinctions between the possible mechanisms have been attempted on the basis of voltammetric, preparative and stereochemical experiments. Contrary to the precedent of the corresponding methyl ester, diphenyl maleate radicalanion isomerises only slowly to the fumarate radicalanion, yet coelectrolysis of 2,3bis(bromomethyl)1,4dimethoxybenzene and diphenyl maleate or diphenyl fumarate gives exclusively the corresponding transadduct. Coelectrolysis of dimethyl maleate with either 1,2bis(bromomethyl)benzene (more easily reduced) or 2,3bis(bromomethyl)1,4dimethoxybenzene (less easily reduced) gave only oPX polymer. The results are rationalised in terms of a double nucleophilic substitution mechanism where electron transfer between dienophile radicalanion and dihalide is relatively slow. Where electron transfer from maleate or fumarate radicalanions is likely to be fast oquinodimethanes are formed by redoxcatalysis and they polymerise rather than undergo Diels–Alder reaction. Dimerisation of the dienophile radicalanions, with k2 = 104 to 105 M1 s1, does not apparently compete with nucleophilic substitution or, where relevant, electron transfer.
