Behaviour of Familywise Error Rate in Normal Distributions

  title={Behaviour of Familywise Error Rate in Normal Distributions},
  author={Monitirtha Dey},
We study the behaviour of the familywise error rate (FWER) for Bonferroni-type procedure in multiple testing problem. Das and Bhandari in a recent article have shown that, in the equicorrelated normal setup, FWER asymptotically (i.e when number of hypotheses is very large) is a convex function of correlation ρ and hence an upper bound on the FWER of Bonferroni-α procedure is given by α(1−ρ). We derive upper bounds on FWER for Bonferroni method under the equicorrelated and general normal setups… Expand

Approximating Familywise Error Rate for Correlated Normal
We study the limiting behavior of the familywise error rate (FWER) of the Bonferroni procedure in a multiple testing problem. We establish that, in the equicorrelated normal setup, the FWER ofExpand


Bound on FWER for correlated normal
Abstract We have considered equicorrelated observations from normal distribution for simultaneous testing problem. In this article, we have shown that FWER asymptotically is a convex function of theExpand
Generalizations of the familywise error rate
Consider the problem of simultaneously testing null hypotheses H 1, … H s . The usual approach to dealing with the multiplicity problem is to restrict attention to procedures that control theExpand
An FDR upper bound for an adaptive one-way GBH procedure under exchangeability
There has been some numerical evidence on the conservativeness of an adaptive one-way GBH procedure for multiple testing the means of equally correlated normal random variables. However, aExpand
The one-sided barrier problem for Gaussian noise
This paper is concerned with the probability, P[T, r(τ)], that a stationary Gaussian process with mean zero and covariance function r(τ) be nonnegative throughout a given interval of duration T.Expand
Some Relationships Between Skew-Normal Distributions and Order Statistics from Exchangeable Normal Random Vectors
The article explores the relationship between distributions of order statistics from random vectors with exchangeable normal distributions and several skewed generalizations of the normalExpand
Strengthened bounds for the probability of k-out-of-n events
It is shown that with a slight modification of the objective function this linear program and the inequalities can be used for the more general case where k is any positive integer less than or equal to n, and the comparison shows significant improvement in the bound quality. Expand

This paper concerns the accuracy of summary statistics for the collection of normal variates, such as their empirical cdf or a false discovery rate statistic, and shows that good accuracy approximations can be based on the root mean square correlation over all N ⋅ (N − 1)/2 pairs. Expand

Correlation Analysis of Extreme Observations from a Multivariate Normal Distribution
Abstract In measuring visual acuity, the extremes of a set of normally distributed measures are of concern, together with one or more covariates. This leads to a model in which (X, Y 1, Y 2) areExpand
