http://hdl.handle.net/10525/1726
Title: Conditional Confidence Interval for the Scale Parameter of a Weibull Distribution<br/><br/>Authors: Mahdi, Smail<br/><br/>Abstract: A two-sided conditional confidence interval for the scale parameter θ of a Weibull distribution is constructed. The construction follows the rejection of a preliminary test for the null hypothesis: θ = θ0 where θ0 is agiven value. The confidence bounds are derived according to the method setforth by Meeks and D’Agostino (1983) and subsequently used by Arabatzis etal. (1989) in Gaussian models and more recently by Chiou and Han (1994,1995) in exponential models. The derived conditional confidence intervalalso suits non large samples since it is based on the modified pivot statisticadvocated in Bain and Engelhardt (1981, 1991). The average length and thecoverage probability of this conditional interval are compared with whoseof the corresponding optimal unconditional interval through simulations.The study has shown that both intervals are similar when the populationscale parameter is far enough from θ0. However, when θ is in the vicinityof θ0, the conditional interval outperforms the unconditional one in termsof length and also maintains a reasonably high coverage probability. Ourresults agree with the findings of Chiou and Han and Arabatzis et al. whichcontrast with whose of Meeks and D’Agostino stating that the unconditionalinterval is always shorter than the conditional one. Furthermore, we derivedthe likelihood ratio confidence interval for θ and compared numerically itsperformance with the two other interval estimators.<br/><br/>Description: 2000 Mathematics Subject Classification: 62F25, 62F03.Thu, 01 Jan 2004 00:00:00 GMTWeierstrass Points with First Non-Gap Four on a Double Covering of a Hyperelliptic Curve

Title: Weierstrass Points with First Non-Gap Four on a Double Covering of a Hyperelliptic Curve<br/><br/>Authors: Komeda, Jiryo; Ohbuchi, Akira<br/><br/>Abstract: Let H be a 4-semigroup, i.e., a numerical semigroup whoseminimum positive element is four. We denote by 4r(H) + 2 the minimumelement of H which is congruent to 2 modulo 4. If the genus g of H islarger than 3r(H) − 1, then there is a cyclic covering π : C −→ P^1of curves with degree 4 and its ramification point P such that the Weierstrasssemigroup H(P) of P is H (Komeda [1]). In this paper it is showed that wecan construct a double covering of a hyperelliptic curve and its ramificationpoint P such that H(P) is equal to H even if g ≤ 3r(H) − 1.<br/><br/>Description: 2000 Mathematics Subject Classification: Primary 14H55; Secondary 14H30, 14H40, 20M14.Thu, 01 Jan 2004 00:00:00 GMTDirect and Converse Theorems for Generalized Bernstein-Type Operators
