3-dimensional multivertex reconstruction from 2-dimensional tracks observations using likelihood inference

Nikolai I. Chernov, Genadij A. Ososkov, Luc Pronzato (1992)

Applications of Mathematics

Let v 1 , v 2 , . . . , v k be vertices in the X Y Z -space, each vertex producing several tracks (straight lines) emanating from it within a narrow cone with a small angle about a fixed direction ( Z -axis). Each track is detected (by drift chambers or other detectors) by its projections on X Y and Y Z views independently with small errors. An automated method is suggested for the reconstruction of vertices from noisy observations of the tracks projections. The procedure is based on the likelihood inference for mixtures. An illustrative...

A note on the relations between two ternary balanced block designs and chemical balance weighing designs

Katarzyna Ambroży, Bronisław Ceranka (2001)

Discussiones Mathematicae Probability and Statistics

The paper studied the problem of estimating of the weights of p objects in n weighings using a chemical balance weighing design under the restriction on the number of objects which can be placed on the right and left pans, respectively. Conditions under which the estimated weights are uncorrelated are given. The incidence matrices of two ternary balanced block designs which are used to construct chemical balance weighing designs satisfying these conditions are considered.

A simplified treatment of the restricted analysis of a slightly disproportionate factorial experiment.

José M. Prieto, José M. Caridad (1988)


This paper considers a procedure to obtain effect estimators in the least squares analysis of a slightly disproportionate factorial design when a sample survey is made of the results of an extensive experiment. Explicit formulae have been found for the restricted estimators and their variances, when the constraints normally imposed upon a proportional model are used. In addition, an approximate analysis of the original model is used to perform that estimation, and an approximate analysis of variance...

A unified terminology in block designs

Tadeusz Caliński, Sanpei Kageyama (2004)

Discussiones Mathematicae Probability and Statistics

Partially efficiency balanced (PEB) designs with m efficiency classes have been defined by Puri and Nigam [15] as block designs which have simple analysis and, if properly used, allow the important contrasts to be estimated with desired efficiency. Such designs can be made available in varying replications and/or unequal block sizes. However, any block design is a PEB design with m efficiency classes for some m < v, where v is the number of treatments in the design. So the term "PEB" itself is...

Adaptive biased-coin designs for clinical trials with several treatments

Anthony C. Atkinson (2004)

Discussiones Mathematicae Probability and Statistics

Adaptive designs are used in phase III clinical trials for skewing the allocation pattern towards the better treatments. We use optimum design theory to provide a skewed biased-coin procedure for sequential designs with continuous responses. The skewed designs are used to provide adaptive designs, the performance of which is studied numerically for designs with three treatments. Important properties are loss and the proportion of allocation to inferior treatments. Regularisation to provide consistent...

Adaptive control for sequential design

Roland Gautier, Luc Pronzato (2000)

Discussiones Mathematicae Probability and Statistics

The optimal experiment for estimating the parameters of a nonlinear regression model usually depends on the value of these parameters, hence the problem of designing experiments that are robust with respect to parameter uncertainty. Sequential designpermits to adapt the experiment to the value of the parameters, and can thus be considered as a robust design procedure. By designing theexperiments sequentially, one introduces a feedback of information, and thus dynamics, into the design procedure....

Algebraic structureof step nesting designs

Célia Fernandes, Paulo Ramos, João Tiago Mexia (2010)

Discussiones Mathematicae Probability and Statistics

Step nesting designs may be very useful since they require fewer observations than the usual balanced nesting models. The number of treatments in balanced nesting design is the product of the number of levels in each factor. This number may be too large. As an alternative, in step nesting designs the number of treatments is the sum of the factor levels. Thus these models lead to a great economy and it is easy to carry out inference. To study the algebraic structure of step nesting designs we introduce...
