Fast Bayesian analysis of spatial dynamic factor models
Strickland, Christopher M., Simpson, Daniel P., Turner, Ian W., Denham, Robert, & Mengersen, Kerrie L. (2008) Fast Bayesian analysis of spatial dynamic factor models. [Working Paper] (Submitted (not yet accepted for publication))
A Bayesian Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) algorithm is proposed for the efficient estimation of spatial dynamic factor models (DFMs). The spatial DFM is specified whereby spatial dependence is modelled though the columns of the factor loadings matrix using a Gaussian Markov random field. Krylov subspace methods are used to take advantage of the sparse matrix structures that are inherent in the model. The methodology is used to analyse remotely sensed data from the Moderate Imaging Spectroradiometer satellite. The data set focuses on a region in central Queensland, Australia, which contains two landtype classes. The spatial DFM is used to extract both the landtype information and the associated common factors in the analysis.

Citation countsare sourced monthly fromand citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloadsdisplays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
