1. The dataset ozone.csv records the level of atmospheric ozone concentration and two
meteorological variables at different locations in the Los Angeles basin in 1976. The response,
referred to as ozone (O3), is the logarithm of the daily maximum of the hourly-average ozone
concentrations (ppm) in Upland, California. The other two variables are temperature in qF
(temp) and inversion base height in feet (ibh). The first few lines of the dataset is shown
below:
(a) Use R to determine the univariate kernel density estimate for the response variables O3
using Sheather and Jones’ plug-in rule for bandwidth selection. How are the ozone levels
(logarithm transformed) distributed without taking account of the other variables?
(b) Use R to fit a generalized additive model with O3 as response and temp, ibh as additive
explanatory variables. You may choose a response distribution based on the result obtained
in part (a). Write down the equation of the fitted model with necessary details including
definitions of all involved coefficients (if applicable) and regression/smoothing terms.
(c) Construct partial prediction plots for the model fitted in part (b).
(d) Is there any linear relationship between O3 and the explanatory variables revealed from the
fit plots obtained in part (c)? Use R to perform Chi-square test to confirm.
(e) Use R to refine the model based on the result in part (d). Write down the final fitted model.
(f) From the results obtained above, how does the GAM compare to a GLIM for this dataset?
Explain briefly. (You don’t need to fit the GLIM.)
2. To fit a nonparametric model ܻ based on a data set, the
smoothing spline estimator is obtained by minimizing
with respect to the regression function ݉, where is the smoothing parameter and.
(a) Is it reasonable to replace the second order derivative ݉′′ by the first order derivative ݉′
in the objective function ? Explain briefly.
(b) What solution for will be obtained for → ∞ ?
(c) Below are three smoothing splines fitted for a given data set, for which three values of
the smoothing parameter,0.0007, 0.02, 0.5, are used. Identify the value of ߣ used
for each estimate.
(d) Suppose that a sample of size is observed as and a
smoothing spline is being fitted. The following is a dialogue between two students.
Alice: “A cubic function can be uniquely defined by 4 points. Since the fitted regression
function must be a natural cubic spline, the resulting fit should be a cubic function
perfectly interpolating the data.”
Bob: “How about the value of ? The choice of the smoothing parameter ߣ would
affect the fitted model. I don’t think the fitted regression function must be a
perfect interpolation.”
Briefly comment on their claims.

3. The dataset typhoon.csv records the annual numbers of typhoon signal no. 8 issued in
Hong Kong from 1956 to 2018, and the first few lines are shown below:
(a) Use R to fit a three-state Poisson-HMM to the annual numbers of typhoon signals.
(b) Draw a state transition diagram to show the architecture of the fitted HMM, including
estimates of the model parameters.
(c) Use Viterbi decoding to determine the most likely state path for 2014 to 2018.
(d) Use posterior decoding to determine the most likely states for 2014 to 2018.
(e) Based on the state for year 2018 obtained in part (d), estimate the expected number of
typhoon signal no. 8 that will be issued in 2019.
4. The ASIA data set is a small synthetic data set from Lauritzen and Spiegelhalter (1988) that
tries to implement a diagnostic model for lung diseases (tuberculosis, lung cancer, or
bronchitis) after a visit to Asia. The original data set contains the following variables:
A visit to Asia recently (no / yes)
S smoker (no / yes)
T has tuberculosis (no / yes)
L has lung cancer (no / yes)
B has bronchitis (no / yes)
X positive chest X-ray results (no / yes)
D shortness-of-breath (dyspnea) symptom (no / yes)
Since the results of a single chest X-ray do not discriminate between lung cancer and
tuberculosis, a deterministic variable E is added and determined from the values in variables
T and L:
E tuberculosis or lung cancer (no / yes)

The first few lines of the data set asia.csv are shown below:
A S T L B E X D
1 no yes no no yes no no yes
2 no yes no no no no no no
3 yes no yes no no yes yes yes
4 no no no no yes no no yes
5 no no no no no no no yes
6 no yes no no no no no yes
(a) Use R package bnlearn to fit a Bayesian network by hill-climbing algorithm.
(b) Write down the joint probability as a product of conditional probabilities according to the
network structure determined in part (a).
(c) Based on what was suggested from the network structure, state “True” or “False” or
“Uncertain” for each of the following statements.
(i) Node L d-separates node S and node X.
(ii) A recent visit to Asia affects the chance of the presence of dyspnea.
(iii) For a smoker with positive chest X-ray results, whether he/she had recently visit
Asia does not affect his/her risk of having bronchitis.
(d) Write down the Markov blanket of node E.
(e) According to the fitted Bayesian network, how likely is that a non-smoker with positive
chest X-ray results would be suffering from tuberculosis?
