In this paper, we define (i) unrestricted (UT), (ii) restricted (RT) and (iii) pre-test (PTT) tests for testing the significance of a subset of the parameters of a multiple regression model when the remaining parameters are (i) completely unspecified, (ii) specified at fixed values or (iii) suspected at fixed values. The M-estimation methodology is used to formulate the three tests. The asymptotic distribution of the test statistics are used to derive the asymptotic power function of the tests. Analytical and graphical comparisons of the three tests are obtained by studying the power functions with respect to the size and power of the tests. The PTT shows a reasonable dominance over the other two tests asymptotically.

    Background: In epidemiologic studies researchers are often interested in detecting confounding (when a third variable is both associated with and affects associations between the outcome and predictors). Confounder detection methods often compare regression coefficients obtained from "crude"...

    We study a collector's problem with K renewal arrival processes for different type items, where the objective is to collect complete sets. In particular, we derive the asymptotic distribution of the sequence of interarrival times between set completions.

    A robust local linear regression smoothing estimator for a nonparametric regression model with heavy-tailed dependent errors is considered in this paper. Under certain regularity conditions, the weak consistency and asymptotic distribution of the proposed estimators are obtained. If the errors...

    We examine simple estimators for general ARMA models and a corresponding identification method. Both estimation and identification are based on a matrix formed from the coefficients of an autoregressive approximation to the process of interest. We show that a zero determinant of this matrix is...

    In the framework of Cramér's probabilistic model of primes, we explore the exact and asymptotic distributions of maximal prime gaps. We show that the Gumbel extreme value distribution exp(- exp(-x)) is the limit law for maximal gaps between Cramér's random "primes". The result can be...

    This paper discusses the estimation of the parameter in a truncated form of a discrete distribution which is analogous to Burr distribution. The maximum likelihood and the moment estimators of the parameter are obtained. Their asymptotic properties are also established.

    In this paper we obtain asymptotic estimates for pairs of closed geodesics on negatively curved manifolds, the differences of whose lengths lie in a prescribed family of shrinking intervals, where the geodesics are ordered with respect to a discrete length. In certain cases, this discrete length...
