Introduction To Nonparametric Detection With Applications

**Introduction To Nonparametric Detection With Applications**

Statisticians have long been interested in the development and application of nonparametric statistical tests. Although engineers have unknowingly implemented nonparametric detectors in the past, only recently have engineers become aware of the advantages of nonparametric tests, and hence have only recently become interested in the theoretical analysis and application of these detectors. Because of these two facts, almost the entire development and analysis of nonparametric detectors has taken place in the statistical literature. ...

**Applied Nonparametric Statistics in Reliability**

English | ISBN: 0857291173 | 2011 | PDF | 244 pages | 4 MB

Nonparametric statistics has probably become the leading methodology for researchers performing data analysis. It is nevertheless true that, whereas these methods have already proved highly effective in other applied areas of knowledge such as biostatistics or social sciences, nonparametric analyses in reliability currently form an interesting area of study that has not yet been fully explored.

Asymptotic Efficiency of Nonparametric Tests

26 December 2010

**Asymptotic Efficiency of Nonparametric Tests**

Making a substantiated choice of the most efficient statistical test is one of the basic problems of statistics. Asymptotic efficiency is an indispensable technique for comparing and ordering statistical tests in large samples. It is especially useful in nonparametric statistics where it is usually necessary to rely on heuristic tests. This monograph presents a unified treatment of the analysis and calculation of the asymptotic efficiencies of nonparametric tests. Powerful new methods are developed to evaluate explicitly different kinds of efficiencies. Of particular interest is the description of domains of the Bahadur local optimality and related characterization problems based on recent research by the author. Other Russian results are also published here for the first time in English. Researchers, professionals, and students in statistics will find this book invaluable. ...

**Advanced Robust and Nonparametric Methods in Efficiency Analysis: Methodology and Applications (Studies in Productivity and Efficiency)**

Published: 2007-03-27 | ISBN: 0387351558, 1441941975 | PDF | 248 pages | 5 MB

Providing a systematic and comprehensive treatment of recent developments in efficiency analysis, this readable book makes available an intuitive yet rigorous presentation of advanced nonparametric and robust methods. This flexible toolbox can be used in theories based on the neoclassical theory of production and its alternatives, including evolutionary theories. The methods are complemented by empirical analysis of three different economic fields: scientific research, mutual funds industry and the insurance sector.

Local Polynomial Modelling and Its Applications

30 September 2011

**Local Polynomial Modelling and Its Applications**

Data-analytic approaches to regression problems, arising from many scientific disciplines are described in this book. The aim of these nonparametric methods is to relax assumptions on the form of a regression function and to let data search for a suitable function that describes the data well. The use of these nonparametric functions with parametric techniques can yield very powerful data analysis tools. Local polynomial modeling and its applications provides an up-to-date picture on state-of-the-art nonparametric regression techniques. The emphasis of the book is on methodologies rather than on theory, with a particular focus on applications of nonparametric techniques to various statistical problems. High-dimensional data-analytic tools are presented, and the book includes a variety of examples. This will be a valuable reference for research and applied statisticians, and will serve as a textbook for graduate students and others interested in nonparametric regression. ...
