  • Guerrero, Jose Luis (1991)
    A theoretical framework is proposed for multivariate quality control based on multivariate statistical analysis and information-theoretical measures. A flow chart is proposed to determine whether the process is in control ...

  • Douglas, Jeffrey A. (1995)
    The simultaneous and nonparametric estimation of latent abilities and item characteristic curves is considered. In particular, the joint asymptotic properties of ordinal ability estimation and kernel smoothed nonparametric ...

  • Mahar, Carol Lee (1992)
    A multitude of studies conducted on advance organizer effectiveness during the 1980-1990 time period were systematically examined, evaluated, and compared to studies carried out prior to 1979. In spite of wide variation ...

  • Levine, Geoffrey C. (2012-02-06)
    In order for a machine learning effort to succeed, an appropriate model must be chosen. This is a difficult task in which one must balance flexibility, so that the model can capture the complexities of the domain, and ...

  • Park, Jeong Soo (1991)
    Modern scientific researchers often use complex computer simulation codes for theoretical investigations. We model the response of computer simulation code as the realization of a stochastic process. This approach, design ...

  • Perez, Gabriel (1990)
    This thesis consists of two parts. In the first part we study the dynamics and the boundaries between basins of attraction of a logistic map defined in real 2 x 2 matrices. We show how these boundaries are of a mixed type, ...

  • Chung, Lyinn (1989)
    A popular nonparametric measure of a monotone relation between two variables is Kendall's tau. Originally, most analysis of this statistic assumed the two variables were independent, while more recently there has been ...

  • Muyot, Maria Emerita Carmen Tiongson (1993)
    Several nonparametric tests based on ranks have been proposed to handle analysis of variance problems. But questions have been raised about the appropriateness of some procedures that are mere rank transformations of normal ...

    We first consider convergence in law of measurable processes with a general parameter set and a state space. To this end, we need to investigate topological properties of the space of measurable functions which is the paths ...
