Abstract:

This one-year contract was in essence a continuation of a previous five year effort. The purpose was to discover more effective methods of analyzing high dimensional data sets. The motivation was the conviction that classical methods were often inappropriate and led to misleading results. A technical paper entitled Variable Kernel Estimates of Multivariate Densities and Their Calibration was accepted for publication in Technometrics. The problem treated was to estimate some unknown probability density in m variables based on n independent samples from that distribution. The solution is an extension of a method proposed by Parzen. Additional work was concerned with completing two other papers that were almost finished during the previous year in the areas of goodness-of-fit and classification methods. Author
