We consider a situation which is common in epidemiology, in which several transformations of an explanatory variable are tried in a Cox model and the most significant test is retained. The p-value should then be corrected to take account of the multiplicity of tests. Bonferroni method is often too conservative because the tests may be highly positi...

The distribution of Kolmogorov-Smirnov statistic can be globally approximated by a general beta distribution. The approximation is very simple and accurate. It can be easily implemented in any statistical software. Therefore, we can use a beta distribution to find the practical p-value of a goodness-of-fit test, which is much simpler than existing ...

Some fundamental issues on statistical inferences relating to varying-coefficient regression models are addressed and studied. An exact testing procedure is proposed for checking the goodness of fit of a varying-coefficient model fited by the locally weighted regression technique versus an ordinary linear regression model. Also, an appropriate stat...

We propose a bayesian analysis of detection of a change of parameter in a sequence of independent random variables from exponential family. The test uses the highest posterior density credible set.

Field experiments were conducted to evaluate the relativeeffectiveness of several covers and amendment techniques forpreventing or controlling acid generation in a pyritic minewaste rock. The covers and techniques consisted of water cover,soil cover, wood bark cover, limestone addition and phosphaterock addition. Water quality data (pH, sulphate, z...

A Bayesian measure of evidence for precise hypotheses is presented. The intention is to give a Bayesian alternative to significance tests or, equivalently, to p-values. In fact, a set is defined in the parameter space and the posterior probability, its credibility, is evaluated. This set is the "Highest Posterior Density Region" that is "tangent" t...
