Factor copula models for mixed data

Date: Wed 19 June 2019 Time: 13:00 Location: Lawrence Stenhouse Building Room 1.40(LSB 1.40) Speaker: Sayed Kadhem, CMP, UEA Abstract: We develop factor copula models for analysing the dependence among mixed continuous and discrete responses. Factor copula models are canonical vine copulas that involve both observed and latent variables, hence they allow the most general dependence, including tail and asymmetric dependence. They can be explained as conditional...
