Hello everyone. I need help with the citation model as explained in This article "Bibliometric tools applied to analytical articles: the example of gene transfer‐related research" The model is expressed as C=KY+S C=cumulative number of citation Y=article life K=citation rate (number of...
6. ### R: Date Calculation

Let I have some data against time : time <- seq(ISOdate(2007,7,1,0), ISOdate(2008,4,5,23), by = "1 hour") y <- rnorm(n = length(time)) dat <- data.frame(time = time, y = y) Now I am trying to create another variable day_index which will take value 1 for 2007-07-01...
7. ### Finite mixture bivariate probit model

Hello, all, I would like to model my data using a bivariate probit model but would like to explain unobserved heterogeneity of the coefficients in the model using finite mixture. That is, I would like to explain the characteristics of the segments (sub groups) when I estimate my bivariate...

14. ### R graphs and capabilities

Hello everyone, I am a MATLAB-user (in my previous work & education) but my company has R installed (and I don’t think there is the will to get an expensive MATLAB license). I am vaguely familiar with R as I used it for a statistics class 8 years ago, but I haven’t touched it since then...
15. ### [R – lme function] Comparing curves in longitudinal data (growth curves)

I think my problem is best solved by the use of multi-level models. However, I’d like to confirm if what I’m doing is right, and the use of the function is right too. I work with cells (biology), by doing electrophysiology. I apply to each cell a series of currents, in 20 pA steps, ranging from...
16. ### Median Interneuron Distance in R in the package Kohonen

Hi all, I am trying to detect outliers using self organizing models in the R package Kohonen. In most of the papers the MID matrix (median interneuron distance) is used to assess possible outliers. Therefore, I am trying to compute the MID matrix from the output from the package Kohonen...
