Abstract:

The important results of the research carried out under the contract deal with several aspects of multiple decision ranking and selection and related problems. A substantial part of these results relate to Bayes and empirical Bayes procedures. Some interesting results have also been obtained in the area of simultaneous estimation and selection problems. Of wide interest in applications are results involving binomial, multinomial, lognormal, logistic, and Tukeys lambda distributions. Methodologies for selecting and ranking ordering populations were developed to provide experimenters with meaningful statistical formulations for real-life problems that often had been inappropriately posed and inadequately analyzed as tests of homogeneity.
