This quantity provides an eclectic mixture of unique study articles in parts masking the research of ordered info, stochastic modeling and biostatistics. those components have been featured in a convention held on the college of Texas at Dallas from March 7 to nine, 2014 in honor of Professor H. N. Nagaraja’s sixtieth birthday and his unique contributions to statistical data. The articles have been written by means of major specialists who have been invited to give a contribution to the quantity from one of the convention contributors. the amount is meant for all researchers with an curiosity so as facts, distribution conception, research of censored facts, stochastic modeling, time sequence research, and statistical tools for the wellbeing and fitness sciences, together with statistical genetics.

If the estimator is median unbiased, then the probability content of the interval is 1/2, and so G −1 ( p) − R . c = M (0,1) T It follows that the median unbiased estimator within Q is the estimator in (7). Solving for c will require numerical methods and the fact that c must be in the interval (0, 1] would facilitate the use of the secant method. Incidentally, a naive and nonparametric estimate of c can be obtained as cˆ = p − m j:n . , Pr [R + cT < p], which we need to set to 1/2. First, we note that we can express R + cT = X j:n + c(X j+1:n − X j:n ) = X j+1:n X j:n X j:n +c 1− X j+1:n X j+1:n = V W, X j:n where U = X j+1:n , V = X j+1:n and W = U + c(1 − U ).

3. 4. 45 Set m = 2n 1/3 . Fit the maximum-entropy distribution to the first m L-moments of the data. Generate B samples of size n from the maximum-entropy distribution. Compute (t3 , t4 ) from each bootstrap sample. At this point there is the same choice as before for constructing confidence regions: assume a joint normal distribution for the L-moment ratios (Method BMN) or peel the convex hull of the (t3 , t4 ) values (Method BMP). We have defined seven methods of confidence region construction for L-moment ratios.

Z n:n be the corresponding order statistics as defined in (6). Then, we have P X j:n , X :n |ξ p = P Z j:n , Z :n |G −1 ( p) . Thus, within the class of location-scale families of distributions, the Pitman closeness of any two order statistics in the estimation of ξ p is independent of the unknown parameters. Theorem 4 Let X 1:n , . . , X n:n be the order statistics from a random sample from F(x), which is strictly monotone on the support of X . Let p ∈ (m 1:n , m n:n ). With 24 N. Balakrishnan et al.
