We consider the case of a thermodynamic system that may have two possible distributions at any time. A linear combination of the two distributions is proposed for the observed distribution of the system. A brief mathematical analysis is given. The thermodynamic parameters of the system are determined in the canonical ensemble. Further, we deduct an equation for the coefficients of the linear combination at the emergence of one of the extreme distributions from the other.

    We describe a tool which supports the activity of a human being in fitting a mathematical model to measured or simulated data. The tool offers two principal advantages; its use requires a minimum of statistical knowledge, and its visual and interactive nature ensures that its use is intuitive....

    It is not uncommon to deal with very small experiments in practice. For example, if the experiment is conducted on the production process, it is likely that only a very few experimental runs will be allowed. If testing involves the destruction of expensive experimental units, we might only have...

    The presence of outlying observations in panel data can affect the classical estimates in a dramatic way. Nevertheless, the common practice seems to disregard the problem. The aim of this work is to study robust regression techniques in the fixed effects linear panel data framework. Robustness...
