11. Algorithm validation using multicolor phantoms
Topic: Statistics
Published: 5/9/2012
Author: Daniel Victor Samarov
Abstract: We present a framework for hyperspectral image (HSI) analysis validation, specifically abundance fraction estimation based on HSI measurements of water soluble dye mixtures printed on microarray chips. In our work we focus on the performance of tw ...

12. Allocating Attribute-Specific Information-Gathering Resources to Improve Selection Decisions
Topic: Statistics
Published: 12/8/2013
Author: Dennis D Leber
Abstract: When collecting data to select an alternative from a finite set of alternatives that are described by multiple attributes, one must allocate effort to activities that provide information about the value of each attribute. This is a particularly rele ...

13. Alternative analyses of the measurements of Planck Constant
Topic: Statistics
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 ...

14. An Application of the Residue Calculus: The Distribution of the Sum of Non-Homogeneous Gamma Variates
Topic: Statistics
Published: 2/2/2009
Author: Robert Charles Hagwood
Abstract: The probability density function for the sum of gamma variates with different shape parameters is found, using the inversion formula and the calculus of residues. This derivation seems more elegant than previous methods to derive the probability dens ...

15. An Empirical Bayes Approach to Robust Variance Estimation: A Statistical Proposal for Quantitative Medical Image Testing
Topic: Statistics
Published: 10/23/2012
Authors: John Lu, Charles D. Fenimore
Abstract: The current standard for measuring tumor response using X-ray, CT and MRI is based on the response evaluation crite- rion in solid tumors (RECIST) which, while providing simplifications over previous (WHO) 2-D methods, stipulate four response categor ...

16. Applying the Hedonic Method
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1811
Topic: Statistics
Published: 9/18/2013
Author: Stanley W Gilbert
Abstract: Often, advances in measurement science will enable the development of new product innovations. When trying to estimate the value of the benefits of an advance in measurement science, it can be difficult to estimate the value of those new product inn ...

17. Artificial Intelligence Tools for Failure Event Data Management and Probability Risk Analysis for Failure Prevention
Topic: Statistics
Published: 10/25/2009
Authors: Jeffrey T Fong, Pedro Vincente Marcal
Abstract: Over the last thirty years, much research has been done on the development of failure event databases and fatigue modeling of crack growth in pressure vessels and piping. According to a USNRC report (NUREG/CR6674, 2000), results of a fatigue crack g ...

18. Assessing Conformity of Two Laboratories: Formulations as a Statistical Hypothesis Testing Problem
Topic: Statistics
Published: 1/9/2013
Author: Andrew L Rukhin
Abstract: A decision problem frequently occurring in metrology is that of compatibility of data obtained by two (or several) different laboratories, methods or instruments. Several statistical approaches to this conformity assessment problem are reviewed inclu ...

19. Assessment of measurement uncertainty via observation equations
Topic: Statistics
Published: 12/3/2007
Authors: Antonio M Possolo, Blaza Toman
Abstract: According to the Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement, measurement uncertainty is assessed by computational propagation of error based on a measurement equation that expresses the measurand as a known function of input variables. How ...

20. Asymptotically Optimal Confidences for Rejecting Local Realism
Topic: Statistics
Published: 12/22/2011
Authors: Yanbao Zhang, Scott C Glancy, Emanuel H Knill
Abstract: Reliable experimental demonstrations of violations of local realism are highly desirable for fundamental tests of Quantum Mechanics. Such violations can be quantified in terms of a confidence for rejecting local realism. We propose a method for comp ...
