Abstract:

This annual report reviews work by Drs. Leon Jay Gleser and David S. Moore and various students, on the following topics minimax estimation of the mean vectors of multivariate normal distributions with unknown covariance matrix minimax and computational stability properties of generalized ridge regression estimators of regression coefficients in the classical linear model Bayes multiple comparison procedures in two-factor ANOVA designs calculation and properties of point and interval estimates of slope parameters in multivariate errors-in-variables regression models linear functional equations Bahadur exact slopes of intersection-union and union-intersection tests asymptotic pointwise optimal and asymptotically optimal sequential Bayes regional estimators for all of, or functions of, a vector parameter chi-squared goodness-of-fit tests for censored data chi-squared goodness-of-fit tests for multivariate normality and the general theory and application of chi-squared tests. A bibliography of publications and reports is provided. Author
