5 Dec. seminar reading (remember it is 10a.m.-12p.m.)


5 December Seminar:
The 5 Dec. seminar will revert to its usual 10a.m.-12p.m. time slot.  My discussion will be: “Philosophy of Statistics: Learning from D.R. Cox” (SLIDES).
  • Mayo, D. and Cox, D. (2010). “Frequentist Statistics as a Theory of Inductive Inference” in Error and Inference: Recent Exchanges on Experimental Reasoning, Reliability and the Objectivity and Rationality of Science (D Mayo and A. Spanos eds.), Cambridge: Cambridge University Press: 1-27. This paper appeared in The Second Erich L. Lehmann Symposium: Optimality, 2006, Lecture Notes-Monograph Series, Volume 49, Institute of Mathematical Statistics, pp. 247-275.

12 December 2012 Seminar: 

Professor Stephen Senn will be here, traveling from Luxemberg just for our seminar. I will post related work, but I also plan to squeeze in something people have asked about: recipes for computing error probabilities, size, power, and severity.  I may need to update this link for next week, but here it is:

Some Recipes and Exercises With Tests, Type I and Type II errors, Size, Power, and Severity
