  • Statistical Inference in Dependent Component Hybrid Systems with Masked

    • Abstract: Complex systems are usually composed of simple hybrid systems. In this paper,we consider statistical inference for two fundamental hybrid systems: series-paralleland parallel-series systems based on masked data. Assuming dependent lifetimes ofcomponents modelled by Marshall and Olkin’s bivariate exponential distribution inthe system, we present maximum likelihood and interval estimation of parameters ofinterest. Intensive simulation studies are performed to demonstrate the efficiency ofthe methods.

  • Estimation in Step-Stress Accelerated Life Tests for Power Generalized
           Weibull Distribution with Progressive Censoring

    • Abstract: Based on progressive censoring, step-stress partially accelerated life tests are considered when the lifetime of a product follows power generalized Weibull distribution. The maximum likelihood estimates (MLEs) and Bayes estimates (BEs) are obtained for the distribution parameters and the acceleration factor. In addition, the approximate and bootstrap confidence intervals (CIs) of the estimators are presented. Furthermore, the optimal stress change time for the step-stress partially accelerated life test is determined by minimizing the asymptotic variance of MLEs of the model parameters and the acceleration factor. Simulation results are carried out to study the precision of the MLEs and BEs for the parameters involved.

  • Bayesian Estimation of Inequality and Poverty Indices in Case of Pareto
           Distribution Using Different Priors under LINEX Loss Function

    • Abstract: Bayesian estimators of Gini index and a Poverty measure are obtained in case of Pareto distribution under censored and complete setup. The said estimators are obtained using two noninformative priors, namely, uniform prior and Jeffreys’ prior, and one conjugate prior under the assumption of Linear Exponential (LINEX) loss function. Using simulation techniques, the relative efficiency of proposed estimators using different priors and loss functions is obtained. The performances of the proposed estimators have been compared on the basis of their simulated risks obtained under LINEX loss function.

  • Relative Entropies and Jensen Divergences in the Classical Limit

    • Abstract: Metrics and distances in probability spaces have shown to beuseful tools for physical purposes. Here we use this idea, withemphasis on Jensen Divergences and relative entropies, toinvestigate features of the road towards the classical limit. A well-known semiclassical model is used and recourse is made to numerical techniques, via the well-known Bandt and Pompe methodology, to extract probability distributions from the pertinent time-series associated with dynamical data.

  • Generalized Estimating Equations in Longitudinal Data Analysis: A Review
           and Recent Developments

    • Abstract: Generalized Estimating Equation (GEE) is a marginal model popularly applied for longitudinal/clustered data analysis in clinical trials or biomedical studies. We provide a systematic review on GEE including basic concepts as well as several recent developments due to practical challenges in real applications. The topics including the selection of “working” correlation structure, sample size and power calculation, and the issue of informative cluster size are covered because these aspects play important roles in GEE utilization and its statistical inference. A brief summary and discussion of potential research interests regarding GEE are provided in the end.

  • On Marginal Dependencies of the 2 × 2 Kappa

    • Abstract: Cohen’s kappa is a standard tool for the analysis of agreement in a 2 × 2 reliability study. Researchers are frequently only interested in the kappa-value of a sample. Various authors have observed that if two pairs of raters have the same amount of observed agreement, the pair whose marginal distributions are more similar to each other may have a lower kappa-value than the pair with more divergent marginal distributions. Here we present exact formulations of some of these properties. The results provide a better understanding of the 2 × 2 kappa for situations where it is used as a sample statistic.

  • Designing Bayesian Sampling Plans with Adaptive Progressive Hybrid
           Censored Samples

    • Abstract: This paper studies the acceptance sampling for exponential distributions with type-I and type-II adaptive progressive hybrid censored samples. Algorithms are proposed for deriving Bayesian sampling plans. We compare the performance of the proposed sampling plans with the sampling plans of Lin and Huang (2012). The numerical results indicate that the proposed sampling plans outperform the sampling plans of Lin and Huang (2012).

  • Statistical Analysis of a Weibull Extension with Bathtub-Shaped Failure
           Rate Function

    • Abstract: We consider the parameter inference for a two-parameter life distribution with bathtub-shaped or increasing failure rate function. We present the point and interval estimations for the parameter of interest based on type-II censored samples. Through intensive Monte-Carlo simulations, we assess the performance of the proposed estimation methods by a comparison of precision. Example applications are demonstrated for the efficiency of the methods.

  • Statistical Test for Bivariate Uniformity

    • Abstract: The purpose of the multidimension uniformity test is to check whether the underlying probability distribution of a multidimensional population differs from the multidimensional uniform distribution. The multidimensional uniformity test has applications in various fields such as biology, astronomy, and computer science. Such a test, however, has received less attention in the literature compared with the univariate case. A new test statistic for checking multidimensional uniformity is proposed in this paper. Some important properties of the proposed test statistic are discussed. As a special case, the bivariate statistic test is discussed in detail in this paper. The Monte Carlo simulation is used to compare the power of the newly proposed test with the distance-to-boundary test, which is a recently published statistical test for multidimensional uniformity. It has been shown that the test proposed in this paper is more powerful than the distance-to-boundary test in some cases.

  • A Focused Bayesian Information Criterion

    • Abstract: Myriads of model selection criteria (Bayesian and frequentist) have been proposed in the literature aiming at selecting a single model regardless of its intended use. An honorable exception in the frequentist perspective is the “focused information criterion” (FIC) aiming at selecting a model based on the parameter of interest (focus). This paper takes the same view in the Bayesian context; that is, a model may be good for one estimand but bad for another. The proposed method exploits the Bayesian model averaging (BMA) machinery to obtain a new criterion, the focused Bayesian model averaging (FoBMA), for which the best model is the one whose estimate is closest to the BMA estimate. In particular, for two models, this criterion reduces to the classical Bayesian model selection scheme of choosing the model with the highest posterior probability. The new method is applied in linear regression, logistic regression, and survival analysis. This criterion is specially important in epidemiological studies in which the objective is often to determine a risk factor (focus) for a disease, adjusting for potential confounding factors.

  • On Cronbach’s Alpha as the Mean of All Possible -Split Alphas

    • Abstract: Coefficient alpha is the most commonly used internal consistency reliability coefficient. Alpha is the mean of all possible -split alphas if the items are divided into parts of equal size. This result gives proper interpretations of alpha: interpretations that also hold if (some of) its assumptions are not valid. Here we consider the cases where the items cannot be split into parts of equal size. It is shown that if a -split is made such that the items are divided as evenly as possible, the difference between alpha and the mean of all possible -split alphas can be made arbitrarily small by increasing the number of items.

  • Exact Inference for the Dispersion Matrix

    • Abstract: We develop a new and novel exact permutation test for prespecified correlation structures such as compound symmetry or spherical structures under standard assumptions. The key feature of the work contained in this note is the distribution free aspect of our procedures that frees us from the standard and sometimes unrealistic multivariate normality constraint commonly needed for other methods.

  • Entering the Era of Data Science: Targeted Learning and the Integration of
           Statistics and Computational Data Analysis

    • Abstract: This outlook paper reviews the research of van der Laan’s group on Targeted Learning, a subfield of statistics that is concerned with the construction of data adaptive estimators of user-supplied target parameters of the probability distribution of the data and corresponding confidence intervals, aiming at only relying on realistic statistical assumptions. Targeted Learning fully utilizes the state of the art in machine learning tools, while still preserving the important identity of statistics as a field that is concerned with both accurate estimation of the true target parameter value and assessment of uncertainty in order to make sound statistical conclusions. We also provide a philosophical historical perspective on Targeted Learning, also relating it to the new developments in Big Data. We conclude with some remarks explaining the immediate relevance of Targeted Learning to the current Big Data movement.

  • Horizon Detection in Seismic Data: An Application of Linked Feature
           Detection from Multiple Time Series

    • Abstract: Seismic studies are a key stage in the search for large scale underground features such as water reserves, gas pockets, or oil fields. Sound waves, generated on the earth’s surface, travel through the ground before being partially reflected at interfaces between regions with high contrast in acoustic properties such as between liquid and solid. After returning to the surface, the reflected signals are recorded by acoustic sensors. Importantly, reflections from different depths return at different times, and hence the data contain depth information as well as position. A strong reflecting interface, called a horizon, indicates a stratigraphic boundary between two different regions, and it is the location of these horizons which is of key importance. This paper proposes a simple approach for the automatic identification of horizons, which avoids computationally complex and time consuming 3D reconstruction. The new approach combines nonparametric smoothing and classification techniques which are applied directly to the seismic data, with novel graphical representations of the intermediate steps introduced. For each sensor position, potential horizon locations are identified along the corresponding time-series traces. These candidate locations are then examined across all traces and when consistent patterns occur the points are linked together to form coherent horizons.

  • Efficient Estimators Using Auxiliary Variable under Second Order
           Approximation in Simple Random Sampling and Two-Phase Sampling

    • Abstract: This paper suggests some estimators for population mean of the study variable in simple random sampling and two-phase sampling using information on an auxiliary variable under second orderapproximation. Bahl and Tuteja (1991) and Singh et al. (2008) proposed some efficient estimators and studied the properties of the estimators to the first order of approximation. In this paper, we have tried to find out the second order biases and mean square errors of these estimators using information on auxiliary variable based on simple random sampling and two-phase sampling. Finally, an empirical study is carried out to judge the merits of the estimators over others under first and second order of approximation.

  • On Agreement Tables with Constant Kappa Values

    • Abstract: Kappa coefficients are standard tools for summarizing the information in cross-classifications of two categorical variables with identical categories, here calledagreement tables. When two categories are combined the kappa value usually either increases or decreases. There is a class of agreement tables for which the value of Cohen’s kappa remains constant when two categories are combined. It is shown that for this class of tables all special cases of symmetric kappa coincide and that the value of symmetric kappa is not affected by anypartitioning of the categories.

  • A Simplified Approach for Two-Dimensional Optimal Controlled Sampling

    • Abstract: Controlled sampling is a unique method of sample selection that minimizes the probability of selecting nondesirable combinations of units. Extending the concept of linear programming with an effective distance measure, we propose a simple method for two-dimensional optimal controlled selection that ensures zero probability to nondesired samples. Alternative estimators for population total and its variance have also been suggested. Some numerical examples have been considered to demonstrate the utility of the proposed procedure in comparison to the existing procedures.
