Abstract:

The main purpose of this paper is to propose and study the subset selection approach for some new problems and make contributions. Chapter 1 deals with some selection and ranking procedures for the largest unknown mean of k normal populations with unequal variances. In chapter 2 some nonparametric subset selection procedures based on U-statistics for selecting the largest of the k location parameters are proposed and studied. Chapter 3 discusses some subset selection procedures for Poisson processes. Chapter 4 deals with a class of selection rules for finite schemes. Chapter 5 discusses some subset selection procedures for a negative multinomial distribution. An inverse sampling rule for selecting the cell with largest cell-probability from a multinomial distribution is considered.
