A computer algebra package for approximate conditional inference

  title={A computer algebra package for approximate conditional inference},
  author={Ruggero Bellio and Alessandra R. Brazzale},
  journal={Statistics and Computing},
This paper presents a set of REDUCE procedures that make a number of existing higher-order asymptotic results available for both theoretical and practical research. Attention has been restricted to the context of exact and approximate inference for a parameter of interest conditionally either on an ancillary statistic or on a statistic partially sufficient for the nuisance parameter. In particular, the procedures apply to regression-scale models and multiparameter exponential families. Most of… CONTINUE READING
