## How do I use this calendar?

You can click on an event to display further information about it.

The toolbar above the calendar has buttons to view different events. Use the left and right arrow icons to view events in the past and future. The button inbetween returns you to today's view. The button to the right of this shows a mini-calendar to let you quickly jump to any date.

The dropdown box on the right allows you to see a different view of the calendar, such as an agenda or a termly view.

If this calendar has tags, you can use the labelled checkboxes at the top of the page to select just the tags you wish to view, and then click "Show selected". The calendar will be redisplayed with just the events related to these tags, making it easier to find what you're looking for.

Maximization of a generalized t-statistic for linear discrimination in the two group classification problem

We discuss a statistical method for the classification problem with two groups labelled 0 and 1. We envisage a situation in which the conditional distribution given label 0 is well specified by a normal distribution, but the conditional distribution given label 1 is not well modelled by any specific distribution. Typically in a case-control study the distribution in the control group can be assumed to be normal, however the distribution in the case group may depart from normality. In this situation the maximum t-statistic for linear discrimination, or equivalently Fisher's linear discriminant function, may not be optiimal. We propose a class of generalized t-statistics and study asymptotic consistency and normality. The optimal generalized t-statistic in the sense of asymptotic variance is derived in a semi-parametric manner, and its statistical performance is confirmed in several numerical experiments.
