#### A Survey of Certain K-Sample Test Procedures with Applications to LPR-5 Data

(University of Texas at Arlington, 1979-07)

When dealing with k independent samples, it is frequently of interest to jointly assess the underlying population distributions. Usually such an
assessment is carried out by performing k independent tests; that is, we ...

#### Methodology for Testing Homogeneity of Variances

(University of Texas at Arlington, 1979-02)

Suppose random samples are drawn from each of n populations with unknown means and variances. Developing procedures to test the claim that the population variances are equal (homogeneity of variances) has frequently been ...

#### The Most Conservative Beta Prior Distribution for Binomial Sampling

(University of Texas at Arlington, 1982-06)

The incorporation of prior information about a parameter into a statistical
procedure is an essential feature of Bayesian statistics. However, the manner in which this is done is often arbitrary. In order to reduce such ...

#### A Further Look at the Comparison of Normal Percentile Estimators

(University of Texas at Arlington, 1978-03)

For the purpose of making a pairwise comparison of point estimators of normal percentiles, a twofold technique is introduced which basically examines ,(a) the "odds" in favor of an estimator being closer to the true value ...

#### On the Determination of Critical Values for Bartlett's Test

(University of Texas at Arlington, 1979-06)

The exact critical values for Bartlett's test for homogeneity of variances based on equal sample sizes from several normal populations are
tabulated. It is also shown how these values may be used to obtain highly accurate ...

#### On the Comparison of Estimators in a Rectangular Distribution

(University of Texas at Arlington, 1979-01)

Given two estimators ^1 and ^2 of an unknown parameter ^, Pitman (1937) has suggested calling ^1 a "closer" estimator of ^ than is ^2 if [see pdf for notations] for all values of ^. Using this "closeness" criterion, Johnson ...

#### On the Relative Behavior Of Estimators of Reliability/Survivability

(University of Texas at Arlington, 1978-05)

Based on a decomposition of mean absolute error, a twofold technique is introduced whereby a pairwise comparison of point estimators of reliability/survivability can be made. Given two such estimators, the method examines ...

#### On the Relative Behavior of Point Estimators Based on a Decomposition of Mean Absolute Error

(University of Texas at Arlington, 1978-03)

Let [see pdf for notation] be a family of probability density functions indexed by the parameter [see pdf for notation]. We assume at least one of the
[see pdf for notation] is unknown. Based on a random sample of size n ...

#### Comparison of Point Estimators of Normal Percentiles

(University of Texas at Arlington, 1977-08)

There are available several point estimators of the percentiles
of a normal distribution with both mean and variance unknown. Consequently, it would seam appropriate to make a comparison among the estimators through sums ...
