101. Three Statistical Paradigms for The Assessment and Interpretation of Measurement Uncertainty
Topic: Statistics
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 ...

102. Tutorial for metrologists on the probabilistic and statistical apparatus underlying the GUM and related documents
Topic: Statistics
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.

103. Uncertainty Analysis for Vector Measurands Using Fiducial Inference
Topic: Statistics
Published: 1/1/2006
Authors: Chih-Ming Wang, Hariharan K Iyer
Abstract: This paper presents a method for constructing uncertainty regions for a vector measurand in the presence of both type-A and type-B errors. The method is based on the principle of fiducial inference and generally requires a Monte Carlo approach for co ...

104. Uncertainty Machine --- User's Manual
Topic: Statistics
Published: 7/10/2013
Authors: Antonio M Possolo, Thomas Victor Emmanuel Lafarge
Abstract: NIST's Uncertainty Machine is a software application to evaluate the measurement uncertainty associated with an output quantity defined by a measurement model of the form y = f(x[1],...,x[n]), where the real-valued function f is specified fully and ...

105. Uncertainty in Reference Values for the Charpy V-notch Verification Program
Topic: Statistics
Published: 5/1/2005
Authors: Jolene D Splett, Chih-Ming Wang
Abstract: We present a method for computing the combined standard uncertainty for reference values used in the Charpy machine verification program administered by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. The technique is compliant with the ISO GUM ...

106. Universal Low-rank Matrix Recovery from Pauli Measurements
Topic: Statistics
Published: 12/12/2011
Author: Yi-Kai Liu
Abstract: We study the problem of reconstructing an unknown matrix M of rank r and dimension d using O(rd poly log d) Pauli measurements. This has applications in quantum state tomography, and is a non- commutative analogue of a well-known problem in compress ...

107. Validating the LASSO Algorithm by Unmixing Spectral Signatures in Multicolor Phantoms.
Topic: Statistics
Published: 2/1/2012
Author: Daniel Victor Samarov
Abstract: As hyperspectral imaging (HSI) sees increased implementation into the biological and medical fields it becomes increasingly important that the algorithms being used to analyze the corresponding output be validated. While certainly important under any ...

108. Weighted Means Statistics in Interlaboratory Studies
Topic: Statistics
Published: 5/6/2009
Author: Andrew L Rukhin
Abstract: The usefulness of weighted means statistics as a consensus mean estimator in collaborative studies is discussed. A random effects model designed to combine information from several sourcesis employed to justify their appeal to metrologists. Some met ...
