• A copula-based multivariate hidden Markov model for modelling momentum in football 

      Ötting, Marius; Langrock, Roland; Maruotti, Antonello (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      We investigate the potential occurrence of change points—commonly referred to as “momentum shifts”—in the dynamics of football matches. For that purpose, we model minute-by-minute in-game statistics of Bundesliga matches ...
    • Diagnostic drama. Use of ICDAS II and fluorescence-based intraoral camera in early occlusal caries detection: A clinical study 

      Mazur, Marta; Jedliński, Maciej; Ndokaj, Artnora; Corridore, Denise; Maruotti, Antonello; Ottolenghi, Livia; Guerra, Fabrizio (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Background: Early diagnosis of occlusal caries is of paramount importance for a minimally invasive approach in dentistry. The aim of the present in vivo clinical prospective study was to compare the diagnostic outcomes of ...
    • Estimating the size of undetected cases of the COVID-19 outbreak in Europe: An upper bound estimator 

      Rocchetti, Irene; Böhning, Dankmar; Holling, Heinz; Maruotti, Antonello (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Background While the number of detected COVID-19 infections are widely available, an understanding of the extent of undetected cases is urgently needed for an effective tackling of the pandemic. The aim of this work is ...
    • Estimating the undetected infections in the Covid-19 outbreak by harnessing capture-recapture methods 

      Böhning, Dankmar; Rocchetti, Irene; Maruotti, Antonello; Holling, Heinz (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Objectives A major open question, affecting the decisions of policy makers, is the estimation of the true number of Covid-19 infections. Most of them are undetected, because of a large number of asymptomatic cases. We ...
    • Hidden semi-Markov-switching quantile regression for time series 

      Maruotti, Antonello; Petrella, Lea; Sposito, Luca (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      A hidden semi-Markov-switching quantile regression model is introduced as an extension of the hidden Markov-switching one. The proposed model allows for arbitrary sojourn-time distributions in the states of the Markov-switching ...
    • Insights from cardiopulmonary exercise testing in pediatric patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy 

      Gallo, Giovanna; Mastromarino, Vittoria; Limongelli, Giuseppe; Calcagni, Giulio; Maruotti, Antonello; Ragni, Luca; Valente, Fabio; Musumeci, Beatrice; Adorisio, Rachele; Rubino, Marta; Autore, Camillo; Magrì, Damiano (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      The usefulness of cardiopulmonary exercise test (CPET) in adult hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) patients is well-known, whereas its role in pediatric HCM patients has not yet been explored. The present study investigates ...
    • Modelling clusters of corporate defaults: Regime-switching models significantly reduce the contagion source 

      Berentsen, Geir Drage; Bulla, Jan; Maruotti, Antonello; Støve, Bård (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2022)
      In this paper, we report robust evidence that the process of corporate defaults is time-dependent and can be modelled by extending an autoregressive count time series model class via the introduction of regime-switching. ...
    • Nowcasting COVID-19 incidence indicators during the Italian first outbreak 

      Alaimo Di Loro, Pierfrancesco; Divino, Fabio; Farcomeni, Alessio; Jona Lasinio, Giovanna; Lovison, Gianfranco; Maruotti, Antonello; Mingione, Marco (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      A novel parametric regression model is proposed to fit incidence data typically collected during epidemics. The proposal is motivated by real-time monitoring and short-term forecasting of the main epidemiological indicators ...
    • Risk stratification in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Insights from genetic analysis and cardiopulmonary exercise testing 

      Magri, Damianio; Mastromarino, Vittoria; Gallo, Giovanna; Zachara, Elisabetta; Re, Federica; Piergiuseppe, Agostoni; Giordano, Dario; Rubattu, Speranza; Forte, Maurizio; Cotugno, Maria; Torrisi, Maria Rosaria; Petrucci, Simona; Germani, Aldo; Savio, Camilla; Maruotti, Antonello; Volpe, Massimo; Autore, Camillo; Piane, Maria; Musumeci, Beatrice (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      The role of genetic testing over the clinical and functional variables, including data from the cardiopulmonary exercise test (CPET), in the hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) risk stratification remains unclear. A retrospective ...
    • Students’ evaluation of academic courses: An exploratory analysis to an Italian case study 

      Centoni, Marco; Maruotti, Antonello (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Students’ evaluations of teaching is a common practice in higher education institutions, with the main purpose of improving course quality and effectiveness. In this paper we would like to contribute to the existing ...
