(1989)This work deals with a decisiontheoretic evaluation of pvalue rules. A test statistic is judged on the behavior of its pvalue with the loss function being an increasing function G of the pvalue.

(1996)The identifiability and estimability of the parameters for the Unified Cognitive/IRT Model are studies. A calibration procedure for the Unified Model is then proposed. This procedure uses the marginal maximum likelihood ...

(1989)In many areas of application of statistics one has a relevent parametric family of densities and wishes to estimate the density from a random sample. In such cases one can use the family to generate an estimator. We fix a ...

(1989)Many authors, for example, Fisher (1950), Pearson (1938), Birnbaum (1954), Good (1955), Littell and Folks (1971, 1973), Berk and Cohen (1979), and Koziol, Perlman, and Rasmussen (1988), have studied the problem of combining ...

(1993)We consider the problem of regressing a dichotomous response variable on a predictor variable. Our interest is in modelling the probability of occurrence of the response as a function of the predictor variable, and in ...

(2007)Clustering and classification have been important tools to address a broad range of problems in fields such as image analysis, genomics, and many other areas. Basically, these clustering problems can be simplified as two ...

(2000)To effectively build a regression model with a large number of covariates is no easy task. We consider using dimension reduction before building a parametric or spline model. The dimension reduction procedure is based on ...

(2000)Motivated by consulting in infrastructure studies, we consider the estimation and inference for regression models where the response variable is bounded or censored. In these conditions, least squares methods are not ...

(2006)The classical approaches to clustering are hierarchical and kmeans. They are popular in practice. However, they can not address the issue of determining the number of clusters within the data. In this dissertation, we ...

(1991)Consider the model $y\sb{lj} = \mu\sb{l}(t\sb{j})$ + $\varepsilon\sb{lj}$, $l = 1,..,m$ and $j = 1,..,n,$ where $\varepsilon\sb{lj}$ are independent mean zero finite variance random variables. Under the above setting we ...

(1990)Twostage Bayes procedures, also known as Bayes double sample procedures, for estimating the mean of exponential family distributions are given by Cohen and Sackrowitz (1984). In their study, they develop double sample ...

(2004)The flexible forms of nonparametric IRT models make test equating more challenging. Though linear equating under parametric IRT models is obvious and appropriate, it might not be appropriate for nonparametric models. Two ...

(1996)Statistical classification and calibration with highdimensional data are studied. We have proposed new classification and calibration procedures for highdimensional data and have established dimensional consistency for ...

(2000)In the logistic item response theory models, the number of parameters tends to infinity together with the sample size. Thus, there has been a longstanding question of whether the joint maximum likelihood estimates for these ...

(2009)Microarray is a high throughput technology to measure the gene expression. Analysis of microarray data brings many interesting and challenging problems. This thesis consists three studies related to microarray data. First, ...

(1989)The theory of statistical breakdown is studied from two different angles. Firstly, the finite sample breakdown points of estimators are found to be inherently related to their tail performances. This connection provides ...

(1990)Probability density functions are estimated by the method of maximum likelihood in sequences of regular exponential families. The approximation families of logdensities that we consider are polynomials, splines, and ...

(1992)As computer experiments are widely used in engineering and various other fields of science and technology, stochastic modeling and statistical analysis have been introduced to handle their outputs. Since in certain computer ...

(2009)Finally, a robust extension of the dimensionality tests is discussed, and a real example is used to demonstrate the merit of the robust alternative.
