Operational methods for space vehicle countdown planning by
Sidney I Firstman(
Book
)
2 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The purpose of a countdown is explored and a measure of countdown effectiveness is defined and rationalized. The countdown planning problem is formally structured through the use of a gameoriented formulation that shows the impact of operational factors upon the countdown. It is seen that several assumptions are required in order to reduce the planning problem to one that is computationally tractable. These assumptions are described in and a Markovian prediction model is developed. This model yields predictions of countdown success probability for a given countdown sequence. The problems of obtaining a feasible countdown sequence and then an acceptable sequence are considered in Sec. V, which develops several computational techniques for these planning tasks. The planning problems introduced by uncertainty concerning the actual state of nature, i.e., the actual levels of the numerous probabilities and parameters are considered, and algorithms for coping with this uncertainty are developed. Then, the countdown length problems are addressed and expressions derived for the moments of an interrupted countdown. (Author)

Multiple regression and estimation of the mean of a multivariate normal distribution by Alvin John Baranchik(
Book
)
2 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Two problems are presented in this study: estimation of the mean vector of a multivariate normal random variable, and estimating the regression function in the case of one predictand and at least three predictors. Estimators are given which have strictly lower risks than the corresponding maximum likelihood estimators for the following three problems: (a) estimation of the regression function; (b) estimation of the regression coefficients; and (c) estimation of the mean of the predict and when the means of the predictor variables are known. In each of the problems it is assumed that there are at least three predictor variables. A summary of previously known results for these three problems is given. The report concludes with some elementary modifications of the estimators computed earlier in the report. The author remarks that these modified estimators will frequently be of practical use

Convergence of moments of standardized quantiles by
Stanford University(
Book
)
4 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A sequence of independent identically distributed random variables is considered. Necessary and sufficient conditions on the density of the distribution are given for convergence of the moments of standardized quantiles of the first n observations as n to infinity. Similar conditions are given for the convergence of the moment generating function. (Author)

Goodnessoffit for the extreme value distribution by
Stanford University(
Book
)
3 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper presents goodnessoffit tests for the extreme value distribution, based on the EDF statistics Wsquared, Usquared and Asquared. Asymptotic percentage points are given for each of the three statistics, for the three cases where one or both of the parameters of the distribution must be estimated from the data. Slight modifications of the calculated statistics are given to enable the points to be used with finite samples. (Author)

Updating subjective probability by

This paper discusses some of the mathematical properties of Jeffrey's rule for revising a probability P to a new probability P*, connecting it with sufficient partitions, and maximum entropy updating of contingency tables. The main results concern simultaneous revision on two partitions

Distribution of a sum of weighted chisquare variables by
Stanford University(
Book
)
3 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper discusses how to obtain percentage points of the distribution of a sum of k weighted chisquare variables. A table of points is given for selected weights, for k = 6, 8, 10 (existing tables are for k <or = 5). The new points have been calculated by a technique of Imhof which gives very accurate values but is expensive in computer time. Therefore two new approximations are considered: a Pearson curve fit using four moments and a chisquare fit using three. Both give excellent results in the upper tail, the tail usually needed for practical applications; the chisquare fit appears superior to other approximations in the lower tail

Estimation of parameters of zeroone processes by interval sampling: an adaptive strategy by
Mark Brown(
Book
)
5 editions published between 1975 and 1977 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Processes in which one of two states is available for observation occur in a number of diverse applications. Since we can label the occurrence of one of the states by zero and the other state by one, we refer to this situation as a zeroone process. These labels can reflect a zeroone natural situation or, as is more frequent, a categorized representation of the two states. What is at issue are estimation procedrues to provide information about the two states. In this paper we consider the following specific problem although the estimation procedures we develop can be applied to a more general class of distributions

Statistical inference for multiply truncated power series distributions by
T Cacoullos(
Book
)
4 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Convolutions of oneparameter power series distributions (PSD) truncated on the left at several known or unknown points are studied via exponential generating functions. The special cases of the logarithmic series, the Poisson and the binomial and negative binomial distributions lead to multiparameter Stirling numbers of the first and second type and Cnumbers respectively. Minimum variance unbiased estimators are found for certain functions of the parameters, including the probability functions themselves. Some conditional distribution properties are given and it is indicated how they can be used in confidence interval estimation of the reliability of multicomponent attribute failure models

Estimating the True Probability of Correct Selection for Location and Scale Parameter Families by
Ingram Olkin(
Book
)
4 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The usual formulation of the problem of selecting the best of k populations has been studied from the point of view of designing an experiment that will guarantee a certain probability of making a correct selection (PCS). However, in retrospective studies the sample has already been taken and we wish to estimate the probability of making a correct selection using this data. The present study deals with obtaining a class of upper and lower bounds for the true PCS and its estimator using the methods of majorization. We also study the large sample behavior of the estimator of the PCS, which turns out to be asymptotically normal. (Author)
