  1. Abstract

    Thet‐year mean survival or restricted mean survival time (RMST) has been used as an appealing summary of the survival distribution within a time window [0,t]. RMST is the patient's life expectancy until timetand can be estimated nonparametrically by the area under the Kaplan‐Meier curve up tot. In a comparative study, the difference or ratio of two RMSTs has been utilized to quantify the between‐group‐difference as a clinically interpretable alternative summary to the hazard ratio. The choice of the time window [0,t] may be prespecified at the design stage of the study based on clinical considerations. On the other hand, after the survival data have been collected, the choice of time pointtcould be data‐dependent. The standard inferential procedures for the corresponding RMST, which is also data‐dependent, ignore this subtle yet important issue. In this paper, we clarify how to make inference about a random “parameter.” Moreover, we demonstrate that under a rather mild condition on the censoring distribution, one can make inference about the RMST up tot, wheretis less than or even equal to the largest follow‐up time (either observed or censored) in the study. This finding reduces the subjectivity of the choice oftempirically. The proposal is illustrated with the survival data from a primary biliary cirrhosis study, and its finite sample properties are investigated via an extensive simulation study.

  2. DTW calculates the similarity or alignment between two signals, subject to temporal warping. However, its computational complexity grows exponentially with the number of time-series. Although there have been algorithms developed that are linear in the number of time-series, they are generally quadratic in time-series length. The exception is generalized time warping (GTW), which has linear computational cost. Yet, it can only identify simple time warping functions. There is a need for a new fast, high-quality multisequence alignment algorithm. We introduce trainable time warping (TTW), whose complexity is linear in both the number and the length of time-series. TTW performs alignment in the continuoustime domain using a sinc convolutional kernel and a gradient-based optimization technique. We compare TTW and GTW on S5 UCR datasets in time-series averaging and classification. TTW outperforms GTW on 67.1% of the datasets for the averaging tasks, and 61.2% of the datasets for the classification tasks.

  3. Abstract

    We present in this Letter the first global comparison between traditional line-tied steady-state magnetohydrodynamic models and a new, fully time-dependent thermodynamic magnetohydrodynamic simulation of the global corona. To approximate surface magnetic field distributions and magnitudes around solar minimum, we use the Lockheed Evolving Surface-Flux Assimilation Model to obtain input maps that incorporate flux emergence and surface flows over a full solar rotation, including differential rotation and meridional flows. Each time step evolves the previous state of the plasma with a new magnetic field input boundary condition, mimicking photospheric driving on the Sun. We find that this method produces a qualitatively different corona compared to steady-state models. The magnetic energy levels are higher in the time-dependent model, and coronal holes evolve more along the following edge than they do in steady-state models. Coronal changes, as illustrated with forward-modeled emission maps, evolve on longer timescales with time-dependent driving. We discuss implications for active and quiet Sun scenarios, solar wind formation, and widely used steady-state assumptions like potential field source surface calculations.
