A class of multivariate skew-normal models
The existing model for multivariate skew normal data does not cohere with the joint distribution of a random sample from a univariate skew normal distribution. This incoherence causes awkwardExpand

Inference on the Minimum Effective Dose Using Binary Data
This article proposes a confidence interval procedure for an open question posted by Tamhane and Dunnett regarding the inference on the minimum effective dose of a drug for binary data. We use aExpand

Simple stepwise tests of hypotheses and multiple comparisons
Summary Holm's (1979) step-down and Hochberg's (1988) step-up procedures for tests of multiple hypotheses are simple to apply and are widely used. Holm's procedure controls the familywise error rateExpand

The Distribution of Stock Returns When the Market Is Up
Abstract For some investments, the relation between stock returns and the market proxy is conventionally described by a linear regression model with the normality assumption. This paper derives theExpand

On explicit and Fréchet-optimal lower bounds
Ease of computation of Frechet-optimal lower bounds, given numerical values of the binomial moments S ij , i, j = 1, 2, is demonstrated. A sufficient condition is given for an explicit bivariateExpand

A lower bound using Hamilton-type circuits and its applications
This paper presents a degree-two probability lower bound for the union of an arbitrary set of events in an arbitrary probability space. The bound is designed in terms of the first-degree BonferroniExpand

Cumulants of infinitely divisible distributions
Abstract In this expository article, we provide a unified version of the literature on certain aspects of cumulants of infinitely divisible distributions. In view of the spectral representationsExpand

The density of the skew normal sample mean and its applications
This paper focuses on the distribution of the skew normal sample mean. For a random sample drawn from a skew normal population, we derive the density function and the moment generating function ofExpand
