Journal Article
Cattaneo, M. E. G. V. (2017). The likelihood interpretation of fuzzy data. Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing, 456, 113-120. doi:10.1007/978-3-319-42972-4_14

© Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2017. The interpretation of degrees of membership as statistical likelihood is probably the oldest interpretation of fuzzy sets. It allows in particular to easily incorporate fuzzy data and fuzzy infere... Read More

Testing of coarsening mechanisms: Coarsening at random versus subgroup independence (2016)
Journal Article
Cattaneo, M. E. G. V., Augustin, T., Plass, J., & Schollmeyer, G. (2017). Testing of coarsening mechanisms: Coarsening at random versus subgroup independence. Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing, 456, 415-422. doi:10.1007/978-3-319-42972-4_51

Abstract Since coarse(ned) data naturally induce set-valued estimators, analysts often assume coarsening at random (CAR) to force them to be single-valued. Using the PASS data as an example, we re-illustrate the impossibility to test CAR and contrast... Read More

Transverse fracture properties of green wood and the anatomy of six temperate tree species (2016)
Journal Article
Özden, S., Ennos, A. R., & Cattaneo, M. E. (2017). Transverse fracture properties of green wood and the anatomy of six temperate tree species. Forestry, 90(1), 58-69. doi:10.1093/forestry/cpw023

Maxitive Integral of Real-Valued Functions (2014)
Journal Article
Cattaneo, M. E. G. V. (2014). Maxitive Integral of Real-Valued Functions. Communications in computer and information science, 442 CCIS(PART 1), 226-235. doi:10.1007/978-3-319-08795-5_24

The paper pursues the definition of a maxitive integral on all real-valued functions (i.e., the integral of the pointwise maximum of two functions must be the maximum of their integrals). This definition is not determined by maxitivity alone: additio... Read More

On the implementation of LIR: The case of simple linear regression with interval data (2013)
Journal Article
Cattaneo, M. E., & Wiencierz, A. (2014). On the implementation of LIR: The case of simple linear regression with interval data. Computational statistics, 29(3-4), 743-767. doi:10.1007/s00180-013-0459-9

This paper considers the problem of simple linear regression with interval-censored data. That is, n pairs of intervals are observed instead of the n pairs of precise values for the two variables (dependent and independent). Each of these inter... Read More
