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

Monte Carlo computation of some multivariate normal probabilities by
Stanford University(
Book
)
2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The computation of orthant probabilities represents a difficult numerical problem for even modest dimensions. Moran (1984) proposed a Monte Carlo estimator of these quantities. In this paper a more general class of estimators is developed and methods for obtaining efficiency gains over Moran's procedure are discussed. Further, the authors discuss the Monte Carlo evaluation of the multivariate normal distribution function
