Limit Distributions in Stochastic Networks with Message-Passing Synchronization
In this work we derive an inversion formula for the Laplace transform of a density observed on a curve in the complex domain, which generalizes the well known Post– Widder formula. We establish convergence of our inversion method and derive the corresponding convergence rates for the case of a Laplace transform of a smooth density. As an application we consider the problem of statistical inference for variance-mean mixture models. We construct a nonparametric estimator for the mixing density based on the generalized Post–Widder formula, derive bounds for its root mean square error and give a brief numerical example.
We discuss the construction of certain infinite-dimensional continuous time Markov processes, based on the use of intertwined Markov semigroups.
We consider a stochastic model of clock synchronization in a wireless network of N sensors interacting with one dedicated accurate time server. For large N we find an estimate of the final time sychronization error for global and relative synchronization. The main results concern the behavior of the network on different timescales tN→∞ , N→∞ . We discuss the existence of phase transitions and find the exact timescales for which an effective clock synchronization of the system takes place.
We consider Markov models of multicomponent systems with synchronizing interaction. Under natural regularity assumptions about the message routing graph, they have nice longtime behavior. We are interested in limit probability laws related to the steady state viewed from the center-of-mass coordinate system.
Full papers (articles) of 2nd Stochastic Modeling Techniques and Data Analysis (SMTDA-2012) International Conference are represented in the proceedings. This conference took place from 5 June by 8 June 2012 in Chania, Crete, Greece.
This proceedings publication is a compilation of selected contributions from the “Third International Conference on the Dynamics of Information Systems” which took place at the University of Florida, Gainesville, February 16–18, 2011. The purpose of this conference was to bring together scientists and engineers from industry, government, and academia in order to exchange new discoveries and results in a broad range of topics relevant to the theory and practice of dynamics of information systems. Dynamics of Information Systems: Mathematical Foundation presents state-of-the art research and is intended for graduate students and researchers interested in some of the most recent discoveries in information theory and dynamical systems. Scientists in other disciplines may also benefit from the applications of new developments to their own area of study.
A form for an unbiased estimate of the coefficient of determination of a linear regression model is obtained. It is calculated by using a sample from a multivariate normal distribution. This estimate is proposed as an alternative criterion for a choice of regression factors.
