Summary

  • Nonparametric bivariate estimation for successive survival times 

    Serrat Piè, Carles; Gómez, Guadalupe (Institut d'Estadística de Catalunya, 2007)
    Article
    Open Access
    Several aspects of the analysis of two successive survival times are considered. All the analyses take into account the dependent censoring on the second time induced by the first. Three nonparametric methods are described, ...
  • Parameter estimation of S-distributions with alternating regression 

    Chou, I-Chun; Martens, Harald; O. Voit, Eberhard (Institut d'Estadística de Catalunya, 2007)
    Article
    Open Access
    We propose a novel 3-way alternating regression (3-AR) method as an effective strategy for the estimation of parameter values in S-distributions from frequency data. The 3-AR algorithm is very fast and performs well for ...
  • Goodness of fit tests for the skew-Laplace distribution 

    Puig, Pedro; Stephens, Michael A. (Institut d'Estadística de Catalunya, 2007)
    Article
    Open Access
    The skew-Laplace distribution is frequently used to fit the logarithm of particle sizes and it is also used in Economics, Engineering, Finance and Biology. We show the Anderson-Darling and Cram´ er-von Mises goodness of ...
  • Objective Bayesian point and region estimation in location-scale models 

    Bernardo, José Miguel (Institut d'Estadística de Catalunya, 2007)
    Article
    Open Access
    Point and region estimation may both be described as specific decision problems. In point estimation,the action space is the set of possible values of the quantity on interest; in region estimation, the action space is ...
