Statistics Seminars: Nonparametric predictive inference for comparison of lifetime data
14 April 2010 13:00 in Department of Mathematical Sciences, Durham University
In this talk we will introduce nonparametric predictive inference (NPI) for multiple comparisons. NPI is a recently developed frequentist statistical framework that makes few modelling assumptions apart from exchangeability of random quantities, with inferences explicitly in terms of future observations, and with uncertainty quantified by lower and upper probabilities. The comparison involves different right censoring schemes, e.g. censoring resulting from early termination of an experiment, progressive censoring and competing risks. (joint work with F. Coolen, Durham University).
