CATS: Clustering After Transformation and Smoothing
Any type of content formally published in an academic journal, usually following a peer-review process.
CATS - Clustering After Transformation and Smoothing - is a technique for nonparametrically estimating and clustering a large number of curves. Our motivating example is a genetic microarray experiment but the method is very general. The method includes: transformation and smoothing multiple curves, multiple nonparametric testing for trends, clustering curves with similar shape, and nonparametrically inferring the misclustering rate.
