Title: Using heterogenous computing to fit a class of spatial models

Abstract: A popular model for spatial association is the conditional autoregressive (CAR) model. I will present an independent sampling algorithm to fit a particular member of this class of models in the presence of missingness and describe a parallelized implementation of the algorithm that can be executed on a wide range of hardware. The merits of the model and algorithm are demonstrated through simulation and analysis of an environmental data set.

Refreshments will be outside of Jones 100 from 1:30-2:00 pm
