Statistics Seminars: Bootstrap inference with applications in directional statistics and shape analysis

Presented by Andy Wood (University of Nottingham),

11 May 2006 00:00 in CM107

"Boostrap methods of inference - in particular, the construction of confidence regions and hypothesis testing - will be reviewed. Topics to be discussed will include: the use of pivotal statistics; boostrap hypothesis tests versus permutation tests; and the extent to which theoretical properties are reflected in practice. Applications in non-linear settings - directional statistics and shape analysis - will be described and used for illustrative purposes."
