61. A New Analysis of the False-Positive Rate of a Bloom Filter
Topic: Statistics
Published: 10/15/2010
Authors: Ken Christensen, Allen L Roginsky, Miguel Jimeno
Abstract: A Bloom filter is a space-efficient data structure used for probabilistic set membership testing. When testing an object for set membership, a Bloom filter may give a false positive. The analysis of the false positive rate is key to understanding the ...

62. On Multiple-Method Studies
Topic: Statistics
Published: 10/4/2010
Authors: Chih-Ming Wang, Hariharan K Iyer
Abstract: In this paper we review statistical models that describe measurements from a multiple-method study such as in the development of a reference material. We also review requirements for the so-called GUM compliance as this appears to be an important cri ...

63. A Statistical Test Suite for Random and Pseudorandom Number Generators for Cryptographic Applications
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 800-22 Rev 1a
Topic: Statistics
Published: 9/16/2010
Authors: Lawrence E Bassham, Andrew L Rukhin, Juan Soto, James R Nechvatal, Miles E. Smid, Stefan D Leigh, M Levenson, M Vangel, Nathanael A Heckert, D L. Banks
Abstract: This paper discusses some aspects of selecting and testing random and pseudorandom number generators. The outputs of such generators may be used in many cryptographic applications, such as the generation of key material. Generators suitable for use i ...

64. Linking the Results of CIPM and RMO Key Comparisons with Linear Trends
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Topic: Statistics
Published: 6/30/2010
Author: Nien F Zhang
Abstract: A statistical approach to link the results of interlaboratory comparisons with linear trends is proposed. This approach can be applied to the case that the comparisons have the same nominal values or of a same magnitude. The degrees of equivalence be ...

65. Performance Measurements for Evaluating Static and Dynamic Multiple Human Detection and Tracking Systems in Unstructured Environments
Topic: Statistics
Published: 6/30/2010
Authors: Bodt Bodt, Richard Camden, Harry A. Scott, Adam S Jacoff, Tsai Hong Hong, Tommy Chang, Richard J Norcross, Anthony J Downs, Ann M Virts
Abstract: The Army Research Laboratory (ARL) Robotics Collaborative Technology Alliance (CTA) conducted an assessment and evaluation of multiple algorithms for real-time detection of pedestrians in Laser Detection and Ranging (LADAR) and video sensor data take ...

66. Copulas for Uncertainty Analysis
Topic: Statistics
Published: 4/20/2010
Author: Antonio M Possolo
Abstract: Applying the Monte Carlo method for propagation of measurement uncertainty described in the GUM Supplement 1, when the input quantities are correlated, involves the specification of a joint probability distribution for these quantities. In practice, ...

67. Final report of key comparison CCM.P-K3 absolute pressure measurements in gas from 3E-6 Pa to 9E-4 Pa
Topic: Statistics
Published: 3/31/2010
Authors: Douglas A Olson, Patrick J Abbott, Karl Jousten, Fiona J Redgrave, Pardeep Mohan, S S Hong
Abstract: This report describes a CCM key comparison of absolute pressure at five National Metrology Institutes (NMIs) that was carried out from August 1998 to May 2002. The goal of the key comparison was to determine the degree of equivalence at pressures in ...

68. Sequential Testing to Guarantee The Necessary Sample Size in Clinical Trials
Topic: Statistics
Published: 1/1/2010
Author: Andrew L Rukhin
Abstract: The paper addresses the sequential sampling issues related to attainment of a given number of events in a Poisson process. The problem of guaranteeing the necessary sample size is formulated as that of open-ended hypothesis testing in which one has ...

69. Conservative Confidence Ellipsoids for Linear Model Parameters
Topic: Statistics
Published: 12/1/2009
Author: Andrew L Rukhin
Abstract: This paper studies properties of conservative confidence ellipsoids for parameters of a general linear model. These regions are obtained on the basis of a linear estimator when only a vague knowledge of (heterogeneous) error variances is available ...

70. Chapter - Batch effects and experimental noise in Microarray Analysis: sources and solutions. Microarray Gene Expressions: The Effects of Varying Certain Measurement Conditions.
Topic: Statistics
Published: 11/2/2009
Author: Walter S Liggett Jr
Abstract: This chapter explores measurements from an experiment with a batch effect induced by switching the mass of RNA analyzed from 400 ng to 200 ng. The experiment has as additional factors the RNA material (liver, kidney, and two mixtures) and the RNA so ...
