  author={Eshan Amalnerkar and Tae Hee Lee and Woochul Lim},
Several methods for reliability analysis have been established and applied to engineering fields bearing in mind uncertainties as a major contributing factor. Small sample size based reliability analysis can be very beneficial when rising uncertainty from statistics of interest such as mean and standard deviation are considered. Model selection and evaluation methods like Akaike Information Criteria (AIC) have demonstrated efficient output for reliability analysis. However, information… 
Monitoring model for predicting maize grain moisture at the filling stage using NIRS and a small sample size
The change in the maize moisture content during different growth stages is an important indicator to evaluate the growth status of maize. In particular, the moisture content during the grain-filling


Information Criteria and Statistical Modeling
A generalized information criterion (GIC) and a bootstrap information criterion are presented, which provide unified tools for modeling and model evaluation for a diverse range of models, including various types of nonlinear models and model estimation procedures such as robust estimation, the maximum penalized likelihood method and a Bayesian approach.
Bootstrapping Likelihood for Model Selection with Small Samples
Abstract Akaike's information criterion (AIC), derived from asymptotics of the maximum likelihood estimator, is widely used in model selection. However, it has a finite-sample bias that produces
Generalised information criteria in model selection
SUMMARY The problem of evaluating the goodness of statistical models is investigated from an information-theoretic point of view. Information criteria are proposed for evaluating models constructed
Bias and variance reduction techniques for bootstrap information criteria
We discuss the problem of constructing information criteria by applying the bootstrap methods. Various bias and variance reduction methods are presented for improving the bootstrap bias correction
Bootstrapping for Characterizing the Effect of Uncertainty in Sample Statistics for Braced Excavations
A simple procedure for assessing the probability of serviceability failure in a braced excavation involving bootstrapping to char- acterize the effect of uncertainty in sample statistics is
A new look at the statistical model identification
The history of the development of statistical hypothesis testing in time series analysis is reviewed briefly and it is pointed out that the hypothesis testing procedure is not adequately defined as
Bootstrap Methods: Another Look at the Jackknife
We discuss the following problem given a random sample X = (X 1, X 2,…, X n) from an unknown probability distribution F, estimate the sampling distribution of some prespecified random variable R(X,
Bootstrapping Log Likelihood and EIC, an Extension of AIC
A new information criterion, EIC, is proposed which is constructed by employing the bootstrap method to simulate the datafluctuation and is regarded as an extension of AIC.
