(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 ...

(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 ...

(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 ...

(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 ...

(201212)Traditional linear mixed effect models assume the distributions of the random effects and errors follow normal distribution with mean zero and homoscedastic variance sigma square. This thesis presents a new nonparametric ...

(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 ...

(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 ...

(20140916)Quantile autoregression (QAR) provides an alternative way to study asymmetric dynamics and local persistence in time series. It is particularly attractive for censored data, where the classical autoregressive models are ...
