A simple sufficient condition for the existence, consistency and asymptotic normality of the regression coefficient in the exponential model for survial is given. The intuition that consistent estimation can only be guaranteed when censoring variable are not too small, depending on the values of the covariates, can be quantified in some examples with the use of this condition.

Some aspects of a mixture model for estimating the boundary of a set of data

Description:

This paper discusses a method for estimating the parameters of the boundary of a set of points for which the y variable is bounded above. The boundary may be linear, for example, in which case a scatterplot of the data may have a triangular appearance. An example is obtained by plotting cube root of food volume in an animal's incompletely filled...

This paper discusses a method for estimating the parameters of the boundary of a set of points for which the y variable is bounded above. The boundary may be linear, for example, in which case a scatterplot of the data may have a triangular appearance. An example is obtained by plotting cube root of food volume in an animal's incompletely filled stomach against the animal's length; full stomachs constitute the upper boundary, while other volumes fall between 0 and the boundary, depending on how full or empty a stomach may be. Our method is to fit a mixture of an ordinary regression model and a variate having an unknown mixing distribution, which represents the variation of another unobserved factor such as the proportionate fullness of the stomach, for example. The mixing distribution is discretized and the number of mixing classes is estimated by Akaike's procedure. The method is found to be stable and reliable for simulated sets of data, and is illustrated by application to three data sets. Examples of occurrence of the problem in various areas of ecology, and in other areas, are given. Minimize

Small-time versions of Strassen's law for Levy processes

Description:

We study aspects of the ‘small-time’ behaviour (as t ↓ 0) of a Lévy process X ( t ), obtaining a very general small-time version of Strassen's almost sure (a.s.) functional law of the iterated logarithm (LIL) for random walks. The class of Lévy processes for which this holds is characterised by an explicit analytic condition on the Lévy measu...

We study aspects of the ‘small-time’ behaviour (as t ↓ 0) of a Lévy process X ( t ), obtaining a very general small-time version of Strassen's almost sure (a.s.) functional law of the iterated logarithm (LIL) for random walks. The class of Lévy processes for which this holds is characterised by an explicit analytic condition on the Lévy measure of X , related to an analogous condition of Kesten for a generalised (large-time) random walk LIL. Both centred and uncentred versions of the small-time result are proved. Subsidiary results concerning functional weak convergence of X ( t ) to Brownian motion as t ↓ 0 are shown to be equivalent to the main a.s. results. The quadratic variation process of X is considered, and applications via continuous functionals are suggested. Minimize

<sec> An estimator for the proportion of ‘immunes’ in a population is proposed, when a sample of censored failure times is available.

<sec> An estimator for the proportion of ‘immunes’ in a population is proposed, when a sample of censored failure times is available. Our suggestion is to use one minus the maximum observed value of the Kaplan-Meier empirical distribution function. This estimator is shown to be consistent and asymptotically normal, under modest conditions on the censoring mechanism. Simulations suggest that the estimator is approximately normal for quite small sample sizes, provided the immune proportion is not too close to zero. A simple nonparametric statistic is proposed to test whether the assumptions of the analysis are likely to be valid. </sec> Minimize
