Special Seminar: Jason D Lee, Exact Statistical Inference after Model Selection

February 25th 2014, 12:30-2:00, 330 Gross Hall Jason D Lee (Stanford) Title: Exact Statistical Inference after Model Selection Abstract: We develop a framework for post-selection inference. At the core of our framework is a result that characterizes the exact (non-asymptotic) distribution of linear combinations/contrasts of truncated normal random variables.…
