  • El Barmi, Hammou; Mukerjee, Hari (Institute of Mathematical Statistics, 2004-02)
    A random variable X is symmetric about 0 if X and -X have the same distribution. There is a large literature on the estimation of a distribution function (DF) under the symmetry restriction and tests for checking this ...
  • El Barmi, Hammou; Mukerjee, Hari (Elsevier, 2012-05-10)
    The peakedness of a random variable (RV) X about a point a is defined by . A RV X is said to be less peaked about a than a RV Y about b, denoted by X≤pkd(a,b)Y, if P(|X−a|≤x)≤P(|Y−b|≤x) for all x≥0, i.e., |X−a| is ...
  • El Barmi, Hammou; Mukerjee, Hari (Institute of Mathematical Statistics, 2006)
    In the competing risks problem, an important role is played by the cumulative incidence function (CIF), whose value at time t is the probability of failure by time t from a particular type of failure in the presence of ...
