SUMMARY Procedures are discussed for the detailed analysis of distributional form, based on many samples of size r, where especially r = 2, 3, 4. The possibility of discriminating between different kinds of departure from the standard normal assumptions is discussed. Both graphical and more formal procedures are developed and iltustrated by some data on pulse rates.

SUMMARY The problem of testing homogeneity of many within-subject variances using small samples is addressed. The asymptotic null distribution of minus twice the likelihood ratio statistic, as the

On testing for serial correlation in large numbers of small samples

SUMMARY Methods are outlined for testing for serial correlation in large numbers of small samples, emphasis being placed on samples of size three. Some data on pulse rates are analysed in

Estimation of an asymmetrical density from several small samples

Some general issues connected with components of variance are reviewed. These include matters of definition, of formal inference in a normal-theory context, of goodness of fit, and of simple methods

Testing equality of a large number of densities

The problem of testing equality of a large number of densities is considered. The classical k-sample problem compares a small, fixed number of distributions and allows the sample size from each

Goodness‐of‐fit using very small but related samples with application to censored data estimation of PCB contamination

Estimation of the error probability density from replicate measurements on several items

SUMMARY Estimation of the measurement error probability density from data that consist of a few measurements on each of several dissimilar items is investigated. An estimator is proposed for

Random Location and Scale Effects : Model Building Methods for a General Class of Models

We describe an approach to building models for data with random effects. The modeling includes both random location effects and random scale effects. The approach consists of a sequence of steps. In

The Moments of the Distribution for Normal Samples of Measures of Departure from Normality

If x 1... x n are the values of a variate observed in a sample of n , from any population, we may evaluate a series of statistics ( K ) such that the mean value of k p will be the p th cumulative

Diagnostics for heteroscedasticity in regression

TLDR
The purpose here is to provide appropriate diagnostic techniques to aid in an assessment of the validity of the usual assumption of homoscedasticity when little or no replication is present.
