Power algorithms for several common tests.
Power algorithms for several common statistical tests are presented. In experimental design of operational tests and evaluations the selection of design parameters so as to attain an experiment with desired power is a ...
An algorithm for allocating artillery support in the Airland Research Model.
This thesis extends the development of algorithms for modeling planning processes in the AirLand Research Model (ALARM), an on-going research effort at the Naval Postgraduate School. An algorithm is developed to determine ...
A comparison of four estimators of a first order autoregressive process
Econometricans must choose between many methods for estimating Rho in a first order autoregressive process. This thesis examines the performance of four estimators in a Monte Carlo situation. The methods examined are ...
An analysis of the BOOTSTRAP method for estimating the mean squared error of statistical estimators
One of the most crucial problems in theoretical and applied statistics is to determine the precision of the estimates produced by different statistical estimators. This problem is greatly increased when the population ...
The internal states of the 3-component standby system
The study analyzes the internal states of a 3-component system with one active element and two spares in cold standby (pure replacement policy without repair). Elements of the system are assumed to have exponentially ...
A multiple linear regression model for predicting zone A retention by military occupational specialty.
The Selective Reenlistment Bonus (SRB) program is designed to offer an attractive reenlistment incentive to improve manning in critical skills. To efficiently manage the SRB program, a requirement exists to maintain MOS ...
A simulation study of estimates of a first passage time distribution for a censored semi-Markov process.
This thesis reports on a simulation study of parametric and nonparametric estimators of a first passage time distribution for a censored semi-Markov process. Four estimators are proposed and compared; Maximum Likelihood ...
A search for factors causing training costs to rise by examining the U.S. Navy's AT, AW, and AX ratings during their first enlistment period
(Monterey, California: U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, 1986-09)
Training costs have increased in the U.S. Navy. This study examines accession data to determine if the following events caused training costs to rise; length of basic training, attrition, and amount of specialized training. ...
Tests for fourth order autoregressive processes.
Upper and lower bounds were determined for a variation of Schmidt's statistic using Imhoff's distribution for quadratic forms in normal variables. This statistic is able to detect a fourth order autoregressive disturbance ...
Use of the Radio Shack TRS-80 Model 100 computer for combat modeling
The primary purpose of this thesis is to to demonstrate some principles of combat modeling using programs for the Radio Shack TRS-80 Model 100 computer. In addition to the combat modeling, the thesis includes several ...
