Cusp Catastrophe Regression Model and its Applications

This talk is to report the development of a cusp catastrophe regression model funded by NIH R01 which can be used to model both rational and irrational behaviors simulteanously in social and health behavior research. We propose a maximum likelohood estimation to estimate the model parameters and their associated statistical inference with bootstrap method. Simulation studies will be used to validate this novel model and the estimation procedure. A real example is used to illustrate this new methods.
