Consistent estimation of distributions with type II bias with applications in competing
(Institute of Mathematical Statistics, 200402)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 ... 
Peakedness and peakedness ordering
(Elsevier, 20120510)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 ... 
Restricted estimation of the cumulative incidence functions corresponding to competing risks
(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 ...
