Probability and expectation inequalities by Stamatis Cambanis( Book )

3 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper introduces a mathematical framework within which a wide variety of known and new inequalities can be viewed from a common perspective. Probability and expectation inequalities of the following types are considered: (a) P(Z epsilon A)> or = P(Z' epsilon A) for some class of sets A, (b) Ek(Z)> or = Ek(Z') for some class of functions k, and (c) El (Z)> or = Ek(Z') for some class of of pairs of functions l and k
Research on Statistical Procedures in Reliability Engineering by Ralph A Evans( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 'time saved on life tests' by using extra items and not waiting until all items fail has been calculated for the exponential, Power-function, and Pareto distributions. The expected values for time ratios are calculated in 3 different ways and the results are quite different. For example, for 7 items tested to the first 3 failures, as compared to 3 items tested to 3 failures, the ratio of expected times is 0.28, whereas the expected ratio is 0.37 (with dependence) and is 0.44 (with independence)

A Weak Invariance Principle with Applications to Domains of Attraction by Gordon Simons( Book )

2 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An elementary probabilistic argument is given which establishes a 'weak invariance principle' which in turn implies the sufficiency of the classical assumptions associated with the weak convergence of normed sums to stable laws. The argument, which uses quantile functions (the inverses of distribution functions), exploits the fact that two random variables X = F sup( -1)(U) and Y = G sup( -1)(U) are, in a useful sense, close together when F and G are, in a certain sense, close together. Here U denotes a uniform variable on (0,1). Byproducts of the research are two alternative characterizations for a random variable being in the domain of partial attraction to a normal law and some results concerning the study of domains of partial attraction

Generalized cumulative distribution functions: I. The linear case with applications to nonparametric statistics by Gordon Simons( Book )

2 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author investigates the behavior of (univariate) cumulative distribution functions which are defined on an abstract linearly ordered space. Special emphasis is given to the study of a class of linearly ordered spaces which J.H.B. Kemperman introduced into the subject of monparametric tolerance regions. Distribution functions on such spaces can be decomposed. Considerable attention is given to applications. In particular, it is shown how a number of nonparametric statistical procedures can be extended to include situations of multivariate and time dependent data. (Author)
On characterization of the gamma distribution by W. J Hall( Book )

2 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Let X sub 1, X sub 2 ... be a sequence of i.i.d. random variables and S sub n = summation, j = 1 to j = n, of X sub j. If X sub 1 has a gamma distribution, (Z sub n is identically equal to S(subscript n, superscript r)/E(S subscript n, superscript r)); n = or> 1) is a reverse martingale sequence for any positive r. These reverse martingales find applications in sequential analysis. In this paper the converse is proved for any integer r> 1, and this provides a characterization of the gamma distribution; in fact, it is sufficient that the reverse martingale sequence have finite length r. Another characterization is also proved, extending the case r = 2 to non-identically distributed r.v.'s. (Author)
