#### 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 ...

#### Optimum Structural Probability Bounds for the Right-tail of the Paretian Law

(University of Texas at Arlington, 1976-06)

The two-parameter Pareto density function [see PDF for equation] is widely used in applied statistics. For example, in reliability theory (1.1) represents the failure-time distribution of a "work-hardened" component ...

#### 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 ...

#### An Information Theoretic Approach to Incorporating Prior Information in Binomial Sampling

(University of Texas at Arlington, 1983-05)

The incorporation of prior information about [see pdf for notation], where [see pdf for notation] is the success probability in a binomial sampling model, is an essential feature of Bayesian statistics. Methodology based ...

#### Pitman-Closeness Efficiency of Estimators of Reliability with Application to the Exponent/Al Failure Model

(University of Texas at Arlington, 1977-10)

When there are available several point estimators of component or system reliability, it would be of interest to compare such estimators through some "closeness to the true value of reliability" criteria. Along these lines, ...

#### Offshore Oil/Gas Lease Bidding and the Weibull Distributions

(University of Texas at Arlington, 1980-03)

It is the purpose of this paper to study the use of the Weibull distribution as an acceptable model for the distribution of the bids on a lease. A multi-sample test procedure of the Weibull-bids hypothesis will be given ...

#### On the Discrimination Between the Lognormal and the Weibull Distributions With Applications to Offshore Oil/Gas Lease Bids

(University of Texas at Arlington, 1980-05)

The competitive sealed bids on an individual offshore oil and gas lease are often assumed to follow a lognormal distribution (Brown, 1969). However, under the lognormality assumption there are known discrepancies between ...

#### Statistical Analysis of Fourier Coefficients in a Restricted Harmonic Dial

(University of Texas at Arlington, 1975-04)

Due to the physical nature of certain periodic data, the harmonic dial points (the Fourier coefficients obtained from harmonic analysis of the data) are sometimes restricted to circular regions in the dialplane. It is ...
