Joint Estimation Of Sparse Multivariate Regression And Conditional Graphical Models
(Academia Sinica, Institute of Statistical Science, 2015-07)
Multivariate regression model is a natural generalization of the classical univariate regression model for fitting multiple responses. In this paper, we propose a high-dimensional multivariate conditional regression model ...
Charmonium moving through a strongly coupled QCD plasma: A holographic perspective
(American Physical Society, 2013-10)
The properties of charmonium in a strongly coupled QCD-like plasma at finite momentum are studied. This is based upon a “bottom-up” holographic model which has been previously shown to reproduce charmonium phenomenology ...
