#### Interval Estimation of the Noncentrality Parameter of A Gamma Distribution

(University of Texas at Arlington, 1984-09)

Asymptotic confidence interval for the noncentrality parameter of a Gamma distribution (or Chi-squared distribution) is derived. An algorithm for
computing the maximum likelihood estimator of the non-centrality parameter ...

#### 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 ...

#### Probability of Selecting the "Correct" Model and Determination of Sample Size in Regression

(University of Texas at Arlington, 1982-04)

Selection of variables in multiple linear regression is a common problem in model building. Let the "correct" model be the model which includes all variables that influence the dependent variable and excludes
all others. ...

#### 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 ...

#### Estimating Transition Probabilities from Aggregate Samples Augmented by Haphazard Recaptures

(University of Texas at Arlington, 1995)

Transition probabilities provide a convenient summary of changes in a categorical trait over time in a population. The difficulties of estimating such probabilities based on only aggregate data from repeated sampling are ...

#### 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 ...

#### Estimating Change Over Time From Aggregate Samples Plus Partial Transition Data

(University of Texas at Arlington, 2000-05)

As such, the paper has two basic thrusts. The first is that to obtain efficient estimates of change measures (e.g. of transition probabilities) based on aggregate data, auxiliary data will in general be needed; several ...

#### Tennis, Geometric Progression, Probability and Basketball

(University of Texas at Arlington, 1999-03)

The following problem about a tennis match is well—known. See Halmos [1, 2]. Consider 2n tennis players playing a single elimination match. Ask the question: what are the number of games played? The answer can be obtained ...
