Abstract:

Work in density estimation resampling has been carried out with Dr. Malcolm Taylor of BRL. Simulation based estimation has been applied to problems ranging from marketing to oncology. Two doctoral dissertations were written on the subject of nonparametric regression. The effects of more active public health intervention to halt the AIDS epidemic were considered. New algorithms for density estimation in several dimensions were developed. The estimation of the parameters characterizing a time series was pursued using both frequency and time domain techniques. The possibility that chaos is an artifact of inappropriate modeling was investigated.
