91. Regional homogenization of surface temperature records using robust statistical methods
Topic: Statistics
Published: 9/12/2013
Authors: Adam L Pintar, Antonio M Possolo, Nien F Zhang
Abstract: An algorithm is described and applied to estimate and remove spurious influences from the surface temperature record at a meteorological station, which may be due to changes in the location of the station or in its environment, or in the method used ...

92. Resource Allocation for Selection Decisions with Measurement Uncertainty
Topic: Statistics
Published: 6/3/2014
Authors: Dennis D Leber, Jeffery W Herrmann
Abstract: Before selecting an alternative based on attribute values that have been determined through a measurement process that has error, a decision-maker can, in some cases, collect additional data to reduce uncertainty. Unlike previous work in the area of ...

93. Restricted Likelihood Representation for Multivariate Heterogeneous Random Effects Models
Topic: Statistics
Published: 1/31/2014
Author: Andrew L Rukhin
Abstract: In the random-effects model of meta-analysis for heterogeneous multidimensional data a canonical representation of the restricted likelihood function is obtained. This representation is related to a linear data transform which is based on the algebr ...

94. Sensitivities and Variances for Fitted Parameters of Spheres
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7616
Topic: Statistics
Published: 7/1/2009
Authors: Christoph Johann Witzgall, Marek Franaszek
Abstract: Experimental data have been gathered by applying 3D imaging systems, such as LIDAR/LADAR instruments, to spherical objects. This report provides a compilation of the statistical and analytical procedures to be used for an evaluation, to be reported ...

95. 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 ...

96. Simultaneous Estimation and Reduction of Nonconformity in Interlaboratory Studies
Topic: Statistics
Published: 8/8/2012
Authors: Andrew L Rukhin, William E Strawderman
Abstract: Several procedures designed to reduce nonconformity in interlaboratory studies by shrinking data toward a consensus weighted mean are suggested. Some of them are shown to have a smaller quadratic risk than the vector sample mean. Shrinkage toward a w ...

97. Soft Decision Metrics for Turbo-Coded FH M-FSK Ad Hoc Packet Radio Networks
Topic: Statistics
Published: 10/1/2005
Authors: B M Peric, Michael R Souryal, E G Larsson, B R Vojcic
Abstract: This paper addresses turbo-coded non-coherent FH M-FSK ad hoc networks with a Poisson distribution of interferers where multiple access interference can be modeled as symmetric a-stable (SaS) noise and a is inversely proportional to the path loss ex ...

98. Soft-Decision Metrics for Coded Orthogonal Signaling in Symmetric Alpha-Stable Noise
Topic: Statistics
Published: 3/1/2005
Authors: Michael R Souryal, E G Larsson, B M Peric, B R Vojcic
Abstract: This paper derives new soft decision metrics for coded orthogonal signaling in symmetric a-stable noise, which has been used to model impulsive noise. In addition to the optimum metrics for Gaussian (a = 2) noise and Cauchy (a = 1) noise, a class of ...

99. Soft-Decision Metrics for Coded Orthogonal Signaling in Symmetric Alpha-Stable Noise
Topic: Statistics
Published: 1/1/2008
Authors: Michael R Souryal, E G Larsson, B M Peric, B R Vojcic
Abstract: This paper derives new soft decision metrics for coded orthogonal signaling in impulsive noise, more specifically symmetric alpha-stable noise. For the case of a known channel amplitude and known noise dispersion, exact metrics are derived both for C ...
