  1. 1. On the Application of the Bootstrap : Coefficient of Variation, Contingency Table, Information Theory and Ranked Set Sampling

    Författare :Saeid Amiri; Silvelyn Zwanzig; Rolf Larsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Bootstrap method; Categorical data; Coefficient of variation; Entropy; Exponential family; Monte Carlo investigation; Informational energy; Ranked set sampling; Variance-stabilization transformation; Statistics; Statistik;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis deals with the bootstrap method. Three decades after the seminal paper by Bradly Efron, still the horizons of this method need more exploration. The research presented herein has stepped into different fields of statistics where the bootstrap method can be utilized as a fundamental statistical tool in almost any application. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Rank Estimation in Elliptical Models : Estimation of Structured Rank Covariance Matrices and Asymptotics for Heteroscedastic Linear Regression

    Författare :Kristi Kuljus; Silvelyn Zwanzig; Dietrich von Rosen; Jana Jureckova; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; elliptical distributions; multivariate ranks; rank covariance matrix; linear rank regression; heteroscedastic errors; linear rank statistics; Mathematical statistics; Matematisk statistik;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis deals with univariate and multivariate rank methods in making statistical inference. It is assumed that the underlying distributions belong to the class of elliptical distributions. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Spatial sampling and prediction

    Författare :Lina Schelin; Sara Sjöstedt-de Luna; Silvelyn Zwanzig; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Auxiliary variables; Censoring; Inclusion probabilities; Kriging; Local pivotal method; Minimum detection limit; Prediction intervals; Representative sample; Spatial process; Spatial sampling; Semiparametric bootstrap; Mathematical Statistics; matematisk statistik;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis discusses two aspects of spatial statistics: sampling and prediction. In spatial statistics, we observe some phenomena in space. Space is typically of two or three dimensions, but can be of higher dimension. LÄS MER

  4. 4. On Confidence Intervals and Two-Sided Hypothesis Testing

    Författare :Måns Thulin; Silvelyn Zwanzig; Burkhardt Seifert; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mathematical Statistics; Matematisk statistik;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis consists of a summary and six papers, dealing with confidence intervals and two-sided tests of point-null hypotheses.In Paper I, we study Bayesian point-null hypothesis tests based on credible sets. A decision-theoretic justification for tests based on central credible intervals is presented. LÄS MER
