(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 ...

(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 ...

(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 ...

(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 ...

(1995)The ordinary least squares (OLS) method is known to be efficient for linear models when the errors are homogeneous with Gaussian distributions, but troublesome with heteroscedastic or nonGaussian errors. For the latter ...

(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), ...

(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 ...

(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 ...
