Conditional confidence intervals are obtained for the parameters of a double exponential distribution. The intervals are produced by finding the conditional distributions of the pivotal quantities (â… (More)

An estimator of the ratio of scale parameters of the distributions of two positive random variables is developed for the case where the only difference between the distributions is a difference in… (More)

A data-based estimator of a dose-response curve is developed. The estimator requires no assumptions about the functional form of the relationship between response probability and dosage. Also… (More)

A class of data-based bandwidth selection procedures for kernel density estimation is investigated. These procedures yield bandwidth estimates ĥ which have a (poor) relative error rate of convergence… (More)

Abstract A method for assigning a value to the smoothing parameter in the kernel estimate of a univariate density function is derived. The method uses observations of the random variable whose… (More)

New estimators for the location, scale, and shape parameters of the Weibull, lognormal, and gamma distributions are developed. The estimators are in closed form, and they do not require the… (More)

Suppose one has a sample of pairs of age and length measurements from each of two or more populations offish. The mathematical forms of the growth curves associated with the populations are assumed… (More)

A method for selecting a distributional model for a random variable, given a random sample of observations of it, is studied for various cases. The problems considered include those of choosing… (More)

Abstract A procedure is developed for obtaining upper and lower γ probability tolerance intervals for a proportion, β, of a population represented by a two-parameter Laplace or double exponential… (More)
