dzexpm-package: Estimation and Prediction of Skewed Spatial Processes

Description Details Author(s) References


DZEXPM contains the function to estimate and predict skewed spatial processes.


Asymmetric spatial processes arise naturally in finance, economics, hydrology and ecology. For such processes, Double Zero Expectile (DZEXP) normal process is proposed in Majumdar and Paul (2015). By using a Bayesian methodology, Wang, Yang and Majumdar (2018) show that by adding measurement error to the DZEXP model (DZEXPM), a reasonably flexible model is obtained, which is also computationally tractable in the literature.

As an example, a skewed data set on maximum annual temperature obtained from weather stations in Louisiana and Texas of year 2003 is attached to test the DZEXPM package.
