Abstract:

This has been a three years in the investigation of topics in the general area of statistical computing. We have developed, jointly with Dr. Malcolm Taylor of BRL the SIMDAT algorithm for using a set of projectile data to generate other data sets which could have happened. Also, we have developed a simulation based technique, SIMEST, to handle problems not tractable via the closed form maximum likelihood approach. We have obtained automated procedures for selecting bandwidths in the kernel density estimation. We have developed graphical techniques for demonstrating density estimates in dimensions as large as 6. We have done extensive work to build algorithms whose function is the creation of multicolored graphical displays of density estimates. We have done work in parameter estimation for time series problems using both frequency based and time based approaches.
