A talk giving a gentle introduction to Regression Quantiles
will by given by Steve Portnoy: Wed, Sep 16, 2015 3pm ‐ 4 plus,
Henry Administration Building, Room 138. If there is time, and you
want to see a couple of additional examples, I might suggest loading
the R-package “quantreg” (of Roger Koenker) and bringing your laptop.
I have a couple of undergraduates doing a reading-research course
on inference for regression quantiles with me this fall, and plan
to give a few lectures. Several statistics students (and faculty)
expressed an interest, so I have a moderately large room and welcome any people who might have heard of the topic and wondered what a regression quantile is.
