The jackknife, the bootstrap, and other resampling plans by Bradley Efron( Book )

42 editions published between 1980 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 743 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The jackknife and the bootstrap are nonparametric methods for assessing the errors in a statistical estimation problem. They provide several advantages over the traditional parametric approach: the methods are easy to describe and they apply to arbitrarily complicated situations; distribution assumptions, such as normality, are never made. This monograph connects the jackknife, the bootstrap, and many other related ideas such as cross-validation, random subsampling, and balanced repeated replications into a unified exposition. The theoretical development is at an easy mathematical level and is supplemented by a large number of numerical examples. The methods described in this monograph form a useful set of tools for the applied statistician. They are particularly useful in problem areas where complicated data structures are common, for example, in censoring, missing data, and highly multivariate situations

Families of minimax estimators of the mean of a multivariate normal distribution by Bradley Efron( Book )

3 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ever since Charles Stein proved that for squared error loss the sample mean X of a multivariate normal distribution is an inadmissible estimator of its expectation theta, statisticians have searched for uniformly better (minimax) estimators with good properties. Stein has found an unbiased estimator for the risk function of an arbitrary estimator of theta, when the dispersion matrix sigma of X is known. The authors extend this very useful result to include unbiased estimates of the risk function in two cases where sigma must be estimated. This formula is used in the main theorem, to obtain more general conditions than previously published. Finally it is proven that the limited translation estimators, which are not orthogonally invariant, of Efron and Morris are minimax
