(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 ...

(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 ...

(1996)The topics of this thesis stem from two EPA/NISS (Environmental Protection Agency/National Institute of Statistical Sciences) projects, which require the use of available data to make risk assessment, estimate uncertainty ...

(20100831)Data do not always obey the normality assumption, and outliers can have dramatic impacts on the quality of the least squares methods. We use Huber's loss function in developing robust methods for timecourse multivariate ...

(20100831)Semiparametric and nonparametric modeling and inference have been widely studied during the last two decades. In this manuscript, we do statistical inference based on semiparametric and nonparametric models in several ...

(1995)We propose a fully sequential procedure for constructing a fixed width confidence band for an unknown density on a finite interval and show the procedure has the desired coverage probability asymptotically as the width of ...

(1987)In this thesis we study sequential procedures for constructing onesided and bounded sequential confidence sets with $\beta$protection and coverage probability at least 1 $$ $\alpha$ for the mean of a distribution in the ...

(1987)We consider a class of invariant sequential procedures for constructing onesided and twosided confidence sets for a parameter $\gamma$ in R$\sp{k}$, with the property that they have a coverage probability at least 1  ...

(1990)Suppose that $X\sb1,X\sb2,\cdots$ are independent observations from a distribution F, and that one wishes to estimate the $p\sp{\rm th}$ quantile $\xi\sb{p}(0 0).$ If $f(\xi\sb{p})$ is known, one may use the best fixed ...
