(20120627)Tissue classification and feature selection have been increasing studied during the last two decades, however the available methods are still limited and need improvement. In this manuscript, we develop tissue classification ...

(1986)This thesis is devoted to constructing tests of hypotheses that dominate a given test which violates certain conditions such as convexity or monotonicity. Many authors, for example, Birnbaum (1955), Matthes and Truax (1967), ...

(20140916)In this thesis we develop inferential methods for time series models with weakly dependent errors in the following three aspects. The first aspect concerns the issue of the sizedistortion in the presence of strong ...

(2006)The proposed test is motivated by studies of GeneChip data to identify differentially expressed genes through the analysis of probe level measurements. Realizing that the number of replicates is usually small in GeneChip ...

(1990)Dimension reduction techniques are important in the problem of regression and prediction when the nominal number of predicting variables is greater than the number of observations. Two methods, principal components analysis ...

(1989)A statistical procedure is developed with the purpose of detecting internal bias occurring concurrently in several items in an ability test. Concurrent internal bias (CIB) is considered in a nonparametric multidimensional ...

(2005)Linear mixed models based on the normality assumption are widely used in health related studies. Although the normality assumption leads to simple, mathematically tractable, and powerful tests, violation of the assumption ...

(2004)The reference growth charts are widely used to screen the measurements from an individual subject in the context of population values. The conventional reference growth charts are generated from crosssectional data and ...

(2006)We illustrate the issues and methodology in the context of an immunogenicity study of measles vaccine for children as well as an ultrasound safety study of the occurrence and extent of lung hemorrhage in laboratory animals ...

(2007)Longitudinal data are characterized by repeated measures over time on each subject. The generalized estimating equations (GEE) approach (Liang and Zeger, 1996) has been widely used for the analysis of longitudinal data. ...

(2006)Marginal maximum likelihood estimation has become the standard for parameter estimation in latent variable models. However, there are instances when alternative estimators that jointly estimate incidental parameters and ...

(20110825)Longitudinal data arise frequently in many studies where measurements are obtained from a subject repeatedly over time. Consequently, measurements within a subject are correlated. We address two rather important but ...

(20130822)Highdimensional correlated data arise frequently in many studies. My primary research interests lie broadly in statistical methodology for correlated data such as longitudinal data and panel data. In this thesis, we address ...

(2008)General computing algorithms are developed in R for the GEE computations and WinBugs to perform Gibbs sampling for the Bayesian analysis. Analyses of randomized controlled longitudinal data and randomized controlled surgical ...

(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 ...
