Nonparametric function estimation, modeling, and simulation by
James R Thompson(
Book
)
15 editions published in 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Topics emphasized include nonparametric density estimation as an exploratory device plus the deeper models to which the exploratory analysis points, multidimensional data analysis, and analysis of remote sensing data, cancer progression, chaos theory, epidemiological modeling, and parallel based algorithms. New methods discussed are quick nonparametric density estimation based techniques for resampling and simulation based estimation techniques not requiring closed form solutions

A local procedure for error detection and data smoothing by Vctor Guerra(
Book
)
8 editions published in 1974 in English and Undetermined and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this paper the authors present a local method for data smoothing which is modelled after the manual loft in the ship building industry. The method very effectively solves the outlier problem in statistics, and is superior to the wellknown global procedures such as the SchoenbergReinsch spline algorithm when it is known that the points have only isolated errors or isolated large errors

Convergence of the gradiant method in normed linear spaces by R. H Byrd(
Book
)
5 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Recently Golomb and Tapia defined the gradient of a (C sup 1) functional on an arbitrary normed linear space. They showed that their gradient method coincides with the known method of steepest descent and established Curry's theorem (any cluster point of the gradient sequence is a stationary point) under the assumption that the gradient operator be single valued and continuous. In this paper the authors prove Curry's theorem in the full generality of normed linear spaces. This includes many important applications in which the gradient operator is neither continuous nor single valued
