I was hoping to "make" it positive using some trick, but after looking around again I am wrong. Like you said, if it's NOT positive definite, then it's not.
I also realized there's an error when putting together the matrix. So, problem solved I guess.
Suppose I have a matrix that looks like this
[,1] [,2]
[1,] 2.415212e-09 9.748863e-10
[2,] -2.415212e-09 5.029136e-10
How do I make it positive definite? I am not looking for specific numerical value answer, but a general approach to this problem.
I have heard...
Thank you zlin034. What do you use to simulate copulas, Gaussian and student-t?
I have two ideas for bivariate Gaussian:
1. integrate the density from Wiki, here
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copula_(probability_theory)#Gaussian_copula
or this...
Hi, all
I have been reading about copula, but still very confused.
What exactly is a copula? My understanding is: there are couple of components
1. uniform cdf marginal
2. a covariance matrix
What exactly is this thing? Why am I calculating the marginals and what does it have to do...
Homework Statement
How do you integrate this?
x-ae-b/x, where a and b are some constants.
The Attempt at a Solution
I have tried this
http://integrals.wolfram.com/index.jsp?expr=x+*+e^%28-1%2Fx%29&random=false
Is there a closed form of this?
I was wondering about this, since the researcher himself said "binomial distribution z statistics with continuity correction."
Also, he said "The P values were calculated by comparing the observed proportion based on 29 patients..."
I am just thinking...what in the world?! why?
The article...
thanks! :) So, why am I told to use normal approximation to the binomial. I understand the normal part, but not the binomial part, where that does binomial come from?
Here is another site that actually explains it, but I am still confused...
What test or distribution should I use for before and after treatment?
Say, I have 30 subjects I test their blood before and after a pill they take a pill, what kind of test should I use?
I want to test mean difference, so, paired t-test? or Wilcoxon signed rank test?
The data looks like this...
Why is limit point called a limit point? does it have to do with limits? I know if you talk intervals on a real line in 1-d, you can talk convergence.
But when we talk about 2-d, like open balls, why are we calling it limit point, even the definition of a limit point does not mention anything...
hey, Fredrik. I figured it out. Yes, this is the ultrametric space. Thanks, just wanted to know I am thinking right.
For the standard metric. If I have a closed ball, is the interior point same the limit point? I mean the definition of interior point is, open ball B(x,r) is contained in...
thanks a lot, Deveno.
To prove an open ball B(x,r) is also closed.
Is it ok to start like this?
Let p be a limit point of B(x,r). If p\notinB(x,r), then, p\inB^{c}(x,r).
Where I said "let p be a limit point of B(x,r)." I though limit point only existed in closed balls, but B(x,r)...
wow, that was such a long post.
When you say an open set is a union of open balls. How do you actually write that in proof?
For all x \in X, there is a ε>0, such that B(x,r) is completely contained in E.
Does this look good?
yessss, that makes sense to me.
What exactly is an open set, what is its role in all this? I have read it in Rudin and Wiki.
It's saying...
say, we are in some space E, we have a point y≠x such that d(x,y)<ε. Another way is to say that every open ball B(x,ε) is completely contained in E...
Yes, I see what you are saying, so when I say an open set, I have to refer back to X, so the reader won't confused thinking that it is in B? But isn't open in B the same thing as open in X, since B\subsetX.
I mean, they are kind of different since X is bigger than B. But open in B is also...
I think I got it, it was that bad actually.
Could anyone help me with this?
If B and B' are subsets of X, A\subsetB, and A\subsetB', then A is open in B\cupB'.
The proof is started, but I don't understand what it is saying
A is open in B implies A = O_{B}\capB for some open set O_{B} in...
I am confused.
Seems like you can use (1/n, 1) to argue for (0,1) or [0,1] and say it is not compact. Because the subcover is infinite in (0,1) and [0,1].
Thanks again! I just feel like banging my head against the wall. Actually I want to bang Rudin's head against the wall. So, frustrating!
Anyways, let \gamma=Sup E, how do you prove \gamma\inE. I know the definition of Sup, but how do you show something is a supremum?
thanks, micromass. :)
So, I was right? I feel like Rudin is a little overated(no examples). How do I learn how to prove this? I know I am suppose to work hard, but you can't just beat me around the bush.
Anywho, does anyone know some good websites? I've been look at other course websites...
I found t=0, there is only one element in that interval, namely {0}. What's wrong?
Let me continue from earlier.
[0,0]={0} \in[0,1]
There exists some I_{\alpha} that covers {0}, and there is a finite number of open covers. So, E\neq\emptyset.
Since E={t|t\in[0,1] and [0,t]...}...
Homework Statement
Want to prove that [0,1] in R is compact. Let \bigcup_{\alpha\in A} I_{\alpha} be an open cover of [0,1].
By open sets in R.
Let E={t\in[0,1] s.t. [0,t] is covered by a finite number of the open cover sets I_{\alpha}}.
Prove that E\neq\emptyset.

We use open ball to define both limit point and interior point.
Say, we have some set of space, call it S.
When point p is a limit point of S, we say that we can find a point q (q≠p) in B(x, r), meaning an open ball centered at x, with radius r.
When it is interior point, we say all...
Homework Statement
Are interior points included in (or part of) limit points?
Homework Equations
Since the definition of interior points says that you can find a ball completely contained in the set. For limit points, it's less strict, you just have to find a point other than the center...
