Erich Lehmann’s Work on Asymptotics

Erich Lehmann’s contributions to mathematical statistics have been both broad and deep, and his influence on applied statistics has been more widespread than perhaps even he knew. As an example, I

Adaptively weighted kernel regression

We develop a new kernel-based local polynomial methodology for nonparametric regression based on optimising a linear combination of several loss functions. Optimal weights for least squares and

This dissertation aims to address two problems in regression analysis, the model selection and robust parameter estimation in high dimensional linear regressions and developing a robust and efficient estimator in nonparametric regressions.

A comparison of robust estimators based on two types of trimming

The least trimmed squares (LTS) estimator and the trimmed mean (TM) are two well-known trimming-based estimators of the location parameter. Both estimates are used in practice, and they are

Penalized composite quasi‐likelihood for ultrahigh dimensional variable selection

A data‐driven weighted linear combination of convex loss functions, together with weighted L1‐penalty is proposed and established a strong oracle property of the method proposed that has both the model selection consistency and estimation efficiency for the true non‐zero coefficients.

Sign-constrained robust least squares, subjective breakdown point and the effect of weights of observations on robustness

The findings of this paper are summarized as follows: (1) We propose a sign-constrained robust estimation method, which can tolerate 50% of data contamination and meanwhile achieve high,

On the Use of $L$-functionals in Regression Models

In this paper we survey and unify a large class or L -functionals of the conditional distribution of the response variable in regression models. This includes robust measures of location, scale,

Modeling of Chronological Age Using Least Trimmed Squares Ridge Regression

: The popular method to estimation the parameters of a linear regression model is the ordinary least square method which, despite the sim-plicity of calculating and providing the BLUE estimator of

Robust M–M unscented Kalman filtering for GPS/IMU navigation

The proposed robust M–M unscented Kalman filter (RMUKF) applies the M-estimation principle to both functional model errors and measurement errors and attenuates the influences of disturbances in the dynamic model and of measurement outliers without linearizing the nonlinear state space model.

Statistical Inference for Big Data

This dissertation develops novel inferential methods and theory for assessing uncertainty of modern statistical procedures unique to big data analysis and proposes a new inferential framework which addresses a variety of challenging problems in high dimensional data analysis, including incomplete data, selection bias, and heterogeneity.



Some contributions to the theory of order statistics

This paper arose from the problem of proving the asymptotic normality of linear combinations of order statistics which was first posed by Jung [9]. In the course of this investigation, several facts

Linear Statistical Inference and Its Applications

"C. R. Rao would be found in almost any statistician's list of five outstanding workers in the world of Mathematical Statistics today. His book represents a comprehensive account of the main body of

Linear Programming Techniques for Regression Analysis

Abstract In regression problems alternative criteria of “best fit” to least squares are least absolute deviations and least maximum deviations. In this paper it is noted that linear programming

On Some Useful "Inefficient" Statistics

Several statistical techniques are proposed for economically analyzing large masses of data by means of punched-card equipment; most of these techniques require only a counting sorter. The methods
