1. A Case Study of a Community Affected by the Witch and Guejito Fires: Report #2 ‹ Evaluating the Effects of Hazard Mitigation Actions on Structure Ignitions
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1796
Published: 6/5/2013
Authors: Alexander Maranghides, Derek McNamara, William Mell, Jason Trook, Blaza Toman
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has a suite of research projects addressing risk reduction in Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) communities. The NIST WUI Team was invited by CAL FIRE to collect post incident data from the ...

2. Standard Reference Material 2366 for Measurement of Human Cytomegalovirus DNA
Published: 3/1/2013
Authors: Ross J Haynes, Margaret C Kline, Blaza Toman, Calum Scott, Paul Wallace, John M Butler, Marcia J Holden
Abstract: Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is one of a number of human viruses that are ubiquitous in human populations, generally cause little illness upon infecting healthy individuals, but can cause life threatening disease in immune-compromised individuals. An i ...

3. Alternative analyses of the measurements of Planck Constant
Published: 7/5/2012
Author: Blaza Toman
Abstract: We compare different methods for the adjustment of the Planck constant using recent, inconsistent data. First we discuss the popular Birge ratio method. By stating the underlying statistical model we critically assess and modify this method. We the ...

4. An international assessment of the metrological equivalence of higher-order measurement services for creatinine in serum
Published: 4/2/2012
Authors: Johanna Camara, Katrice A Lippa, David Lee Duewer, Hugo H. Gasca-Aragon, Blaza Toman
Abstract: Background: The CCQM-K80 Key Comparison directly assessed the equivalence of many of the world‰s higher-order value-assigned materials (HOVAMs) for creatinine in human serum. This 2009 international study compared the certified values and uncertaint ...

5. A Bayesian Approach to the Evaluation of Comparisons of Individually Value-Assigned Reference Materials
Published: 3/3/2012
Author: Blaza Toman
Abstract: A new data analysis procedure is presented for the evaluation of comparisons of reference materials individually prepared and value-assigned by different organizations to measurements made in a single laboratory under repeatability measurements. Th ...

6. Tutorial for metrologists on the probabilistic and statistical apparatus underlying the GUM and related documents
Published: 11/9/2011
Authors: Antonio M Possolo, Blaza Toman
Abstract: A review and précis of the meaning and calculus of probability, including random variables, probability distributions, functions of random variables, and of Bayesian statistical inference, with many illustrative examples.

7. Bayesian uncertainty analysis for a regression model versus application of GUM Supplement 1 to the least-squares estimate
Published: 5/5/2011
Authors: Blaza Toman, Clemens Elster
Abstract: Application of least-squares as, for instance, in curve fitting is an important tool of data analysis in metrology. It is tempting to employ the supplement 1 to the GUM (GUM-S1) to evaluate the uncertainty associated with the resulting parameter esti ...

8. Quantifying Model Error
Published: 2/11/2011
Authors: Kevin B McGrattan, Blaza Toman
Abstract: A methodology is proposed for reporting the results of fire model validation studies that consist mainly of comparisons of model predictions and experimental measurements. The difference between the two is a combination of model error and experimen ...

9. Bayesian uncertainty analysis under prior ignorance of the measurand vs. analysis using the Supplement to the Guide: A comparison
Published: 2/17/2009
Authors: Blaza Toman, Clemens Elster
Abstract: A recent supplement to the GUM (GUM S1) is compared with a Bayesian analysis in terms of a particular task of data analysis, one where no prior knowledge of the measurand is presumed. For the Bayesian analysis, an improper prior density on the measur ...

10. Three Statistical Paradigms for The Assessment and Interpretation of Measurement Uncertainty
Published: 1/12/2009
Authors: William F Guthrie, Hung-Kung Liu, Andrew L Rukhin, Blaza Toman, Chih-Ming Wang, Nien F Zhang
Abstract: The goals of this chapter are to present different approaches to uncertainty assessment from a statistical point of view and to relate them to the methods that are currently being used in metrology or are being developed within the metrology communit ...
