Analytic and monte carlo distribution theory for PERT
(Texas A&M University. Libraries, 09 AUG 196) 
Applications of optimization techniques to statistical problems
(Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1970) 
Canonical correlation and discrimination with missing observations
(Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1981)A procedure is proposed as a solution to the problem of estimating canonical correlations using samples with missing observations. Simulation studies are made to compare this procedure to the common procedure of ignoring ... 
Correlations and Probability

A densityquantile function approach to choosing order statistics for the estimation of location and scale parameters
Parzen (1979) has shown that the estimation of location and scale parameters by linear systematic statistics may be formulated as a problem in regression analysis of a smoothed sample quantile process. In this dissertation, ... 
Estimation and classification problems in the fixed model analysis of variance
(Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1970)This dissertation deals with the practical solution of estimation and classification problems which arise in the fixed model analysis of variance when one encounters responses which are not completely specified, and may, ... 
Estimation of linear and nonlinear production functions under restraints
(Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1974) 
Exact confidence regions for the parameters of nonlinear models and for the variance ratios of mixed models
(Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1966) 
Global optimization of nonconvex separable programs
(Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1974)In this dissertation consideration is given to the optimization of a function of n variables subject to constraints which restrict the allowable solution space. In particular, the functions composing the problem must be ... 
The inversecubic polynomial as a probability function in climatology particularized to monthly and annual precipitation
(Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1968)The objective of this study was to determine in detail the reliability of the inversecubic polynomial as an approximation function for probability distributions of monthly and annual precipitation. In addition, 20 other ... 
Knowledge and understanding of probability and statistics topics by preservice PK8 teachers
(Texas A&M University, 20051101)Given the importance placed on probability and statistics in the PK8 curriculum by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (2000) and on teachers by the Interstate New Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium ... 
A model based analysis for two period, two treatment changeover clinical trials
(Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1975)This dissertation is concerned with developing a method of analysis for data arising from a series of clinical trials which involve the testing of a new drug and a standard drug in patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis. Data ... 
Optimal estimation of multivariate parameters from fragmentary data
(Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1970)In this dissertation, procedures are presented for developing estimators which incorporate information from incomplete or fragmentary data to estimate unknown parameters in a multivariate distribution. Detailed treatment ... 
Properties of estimators in anova problems with some unclassified units
(Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1972)The so called "classification problem" is concerned with a decision as to which of k alternative "populations" (t = l,...,k) a sample unit belongs. In order to reach such a decision, the elements of a vector of "characteristics," ... 
Regression diagnostics
(Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1982)The problems of detecting influential observations and collinearity in multiple linear regression are discussed. The commonly used diagnostics of influential observations and collinearity are critically appraised and ... 
Reliabilitybased Life Cycle Management of Corroding Pipelines via Optimization under Uncertainty
(20170510)Corrosioninduced damage is a major source of deterioration in infrastructure and industrial systems such as bridges, offshore and onshore structures, and underground oil and gas pipelines. The uncertainty is pervasive in ... 
Sampling and Statistics
(20200202) 
Seismic Attribute Analysis Using Higher Order Statistics
(20090515)Seismic data processing depends on mathematical and statistical tools such as convolution, crosscorrelation and stack that employ secondorder statistics (SOS). Seismic signals are nonGaussian and therefore contain ... 
A small sample theory for post stratification
When a sample is stratified after the units are selected, the process is called post stratification. Several new estimators using post stratification are considered for simple random sampling and for stratified random ...
