In this personal blog I aim to express thoughts and ideas, related to my scientific research work, in minimally technical terms.
A link to my book, “Coincidences in the Bible and in biblical Hebrew”, allows free download.
My research work has recently concentrated on three areas:
- Response Modeling Methodology (RMM);
- Bible and biblical Hebrew;
- Statistical applications.
An authorized list of my publications may be found, in a PDF file, here.
Details about some of these are given below.
Developing a new statistical modeling approach, denoted Response Modeling Methodology (RMM). The underlying ideas and motivation that have led to developing the new approach, and its implication to the practice of statistics, are discussed in various blog entries, tagged “My research in statistics” (see link to Wikipedia entry below).
2. Bible and biblical Hebrew
Analyses relating to the Hebrew Bible and to biblical Hebrew. Results from some of these research efforts have been summarized in my book: “Coincidences in the Bible and in Biblical Hebrew” (2nd Ed., 2012). Related materials and additional commentaries, not included in the book, are posted in various blog entries (or linked to them).
The book in its entirety is now available for free download:
Bookmarks allow reaching easily any desired chapter, Table of Contents (TOC) or Table of Figures (activate bookmarks in Adobe Acrobat Reader).
3. Statistical Applications:
- Developing a new approach, based on RMM and on modern principles of Statistical Process Control (SPC), to modeling and monitoring fetal-growth. This research effort is conducted by a team of researchers, which includes members from the Open University of Israel and from Soroka Medical Center (affiliated to Ben-Gurion University);
- Modeling RMM-based growth-curves (pre-birth or post-birth), using non-linear quantile regression;
- Modeling the distribution of surgery duration and monitoring it via SPC. This research effort aims to provide managers with forecast and control tools that would enable better utilization of operating rooms. Three related articles have by now (2022) been published.
Published literature, relating to these areas and others, may be found on my ResearchGate Page , and on other pages (see links below).
An additional area that my blog addresses (unlike the previous three, I do not classify it as scientific research):
4. Current Historical Coincidences
In my book (item 2 above) I detail some curious historical coincidences that have appeared over the years in Jewish history (Chapter 20 therein). Two examples are the constant presence of adverse Hebrew-language connotations to names of historical adversaries of the Jewish people (names that had not originated in the Hebrew language), and the strange start date in the Hebrew-year calendar of the second Gulf war (March, 2003) a day after the first Gulf war abruptly ended (February, 1991). Posts in this category expound current historical coincidences that are interesting and surprising. However, they should be perceived for what they are, namely, coincidences (or not..).
