The focus of this paper is on the sensitivity to the specification of the prior in a hidden Markov model describing homogeneous segments of DNA sequences. An intron from the chimpanzee α-fetoprotein gene, which plays an important role in embryonic development in mammals is analysed. Three main aims are considered : (i) to assess the sensitivity to prior(More)
We develop a test for equality of variances given two independent random samples of observations. The test can be expected to perform well when both sample sizes are at least moderate and the sample variances are asymptotically equivalent to the maximum likelihood estimators of the population variances. The test is motivated by and is here assessed for the(More)
