  • Nunes, Luis Miguel Rainho Catela (1994)
    This thesis contains a discussion of three problems related to structural changes and unit-roots in time-series analysis. First, it is shown under which conditions it is possible to consistently estimate the break date in ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...
