Abstract: The research project involves three teams based at the Bocconi University, the University of Torino and the University of Pavia. Its goal is two-fold. On the one hand it aims at the development of models for dealing with covariate-dependent data, heterogeneous populations and time-varying phenomena. On the other hand, it investigates asymptotic properties of the proposed models as they will form the basis for the proposal of finite-sample approximation of Bayesian procedures.
