(1991)A new approach to evaluate the reliability of structural systems using a Monte Carlo variance reduction technique called the Importance Sampling is presented. Since the efficiency of the importance sampling method depends ...

(1996)This study investigated moderated regression analysis using latent variables. Interactive psychological theories, the stressbuffering hypothesis, and interaction in regression and structural equation models, were reviewed. ...

(1993)This thesis examines issues related to Valiant's Probably Approximately Correct (PAC) model for learning from examples. In this model, a student observes examples that consist of sample points drawn according to a fixed, ...

(1987)This thesis deals with the asymptotic behavior of stopping rules ${\rm T\sb{A}}$ and ${\rm T\sb{d}}$ proposed by Martinsek (Ann. Statist., 12 (1984):533550). The asymptotic normality of these stopping rules, when A tends ...

(1991)Two different methods for comparing alternative mixed models describing the continuous variable underlying allnone response traits were proposed. The first may be viewed as an extension of the analysis of deviance using ...

(1989)This thesis main focus are the robustness properties of the Schwarz Information Criterion (SIC) based on sample objective functions defining (Bias) robust Mestimators. The Bayesian underpinnings of such a criterion are ...

(1980)It was the purpose of this study, through the use of a Monte Carlo simulation, to investigate the robustness of the analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) model relative to violations of some of the model's assumptions, and to ...

(1995)Unidimensionality is one of the most important assumptions required by much of the currently used item response theory (IRT) methodologies. In the first part of this thesis, a further and nontrivial practical refinement ...

(1994)A new index based on the conditional covariance of item scores given a latent variable is defined and investigated to assess dimensionality in educational and psychological test data. This index successfully detects the ...

(1995)Randles' one sample multivariate sign test based on interdirections is extended to two sample and multisample tests. A heuristic argument suggests that when samples are drawn from elliptically symmetric distributions all ...

(1993)Efron (1988) proposes the use of standard logistic regression techniques to estimate hazard rates and survival curves from survival data. These techniques allow statisticians to use parametric regression modeling on survival ...

(1994)The goal of the present research was to investigate the low frequency modes of variability in the observed atmosphere and compare those to the counterpart modes in a Global Climate Model (GCM). As a means to accomplish ...

(1990)Let $\{$(X$\sb{\rm t}$,Y$\sb{\rm t}$): t $\in$ N$\}$ be a strictly stationary process with X$\sb{\rm t}$ being R$\sp{\rm d}$valued and Y$\sb{\rm t}$ being real valued. Consider the problem of estimating the conditional ...

(1982)Over the last several decades the linear regression model has become one of the most widely used tools of the social sciences and the physical sciences. Given the data, the least squares method gives information for ...

(1995)The thesis consists of six chapters and focus on two topics: quantile regression and survival analysis. Firstly, direct use of regression quantiles to construct confidence intervals and confidence bands for conditional ...

(1991)Recursive methods for solving the nonparametric regression problem in the GLIMs and computing the Best Linear Unbiased Predictors are discussed here. An iterated state space algorithm is introduced to compute the generalized ...
