Poster announcing the Flury Lecture (pdf)

The Statistics Department talk is based on a paper of the same name which has apeared in PNAS, May 19, 2009, p 8123-8127 here . See also "Framework for kernel regularization with application to protein clustering", PNAS, Aug 30, 2005, p 12332-12337 here which focusses on dissimilarity information. A related work, regarding dissimilarity information on manifolds is discussed in "Robust manifold unfolding with kernel regularization" here . A review of these three papers is in "Encoding dissimilarity data for statistical model building" here . The Flury talk is based on Corrada Bravo et al, "Using Distance Correlation and SS-ANOVA to assess associations of familial relationships, lifestyls factors, diseases, and mortality" PNAS, December 11, 2012, p 20352-20357 here .

All preprints since late 1993 vailable here.
