Inferences for survival curves based on right censored continuous or grouped data are studied. Testing homogeneity with an ordered restricted alternative and testing the order restriction as the null hypothesis are considered. Under a proportional hazards model, the ordering on the survival curves corresponds to an ordering on the regression coefficients.(More)
Inferences for survival curves based on right censored data are studied for situations in which it is believed that the treatments have survival times at least as large as the control or at least as small as the control. Testing homogeneity with the appropriate order restricted alternative and testing the order restriction as the null hypothesis are(More)
The performance of spiral inductors on insulating substrates is far superior to ones fabricated in bulk CMOS or BiCMOS processes. In spite of this, SOI inductors are generally not satisfactory for very low noise or low insertion loss circuits. This work studies high frequency effects on current density In Inductors and discusses improvements In(More)
A Bayesian hierarchical mixed model is developed for multiple comparisons under a simple order restriction. The model facilitates inferences on the successive differences of the population means, for which we choose independent prior distributions that are mixtures of an exponential distribution and a discrete distribution with its entire mass at zero. We(More)
