Exploring Difficulties with Existing Methods continued

  • Working on manuscript for this today, hope to have a draft soon.
  • Just added a basic example using a star-burst tree to illustrate the challenges associated with this kind of model choice inference.
  • Sent draft to Brian and Peter, and Wainwright lab.
  • Still needs a figure explaining the BM, OU(1) and OU(LP) models for those not familiar with Butler and King 2004 paper, general polishing.

Further Revisions based on feedback

  • Need to explain the simulation approach much more clearly as a model testing alternative to AIC/SIC. Need to explain how this can be done independent of AIC/SIC. Need proper discussion section.
