  1. 1. On unequal probability sampling designs

    University dissertation from Umeå : Department of Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics, Umeå University

    Author : Anton Grafström; Umeå universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; conditional Poisson sampling; correlated Poisson sampling; entropy; extended Sampford sampling; Horvitz-Thompson estimator; inclusion probabilities; list-sequential sampling; non-rejective implementation; Pareto sampling; Poisson sampling; probability functions; ratio estimator; real-time sampling; repeated Poisson sampling; Sampford sampling; sampling designs; splitting method; unequal probability sampling; MATHEMATICS Applied mathematics Mathematical statistics; MATEMATIK Tillämpad matematik Matematisk statistik; matematisk statistik; Mathematical Statistics;

    Abstract : The main objective in sampling is to select a sample from a population in order to estimate some unknown population parameter, usually a total or a mean of some interesting variable. When the units in the population do not have the same probability of being included in a sample, it is called unequal probability sampling. READ MORE

  2. 2. On Methods for Real Time Sampling and Distributions in Sampling

    University dissertation from Umeå : Matematisk statistik

    Author : Kadri Meister; Umeå universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mathematical statistics; Finite population sampling; inferential issues; real time sampling; sequential sampling methods; negative sampling correlations; model-design-based inference; multivariate Bernoulli and multinomial designs; Matematisk statistik; MATHEMATICS Applied mathematics Mathematical statistics; MATEMATIK Tillämpad matematik Matematisk statistik; matematisk statistik; Mathematical Statistics;

    Abstract : This thesis is composed of six papers, all dealing with the issue of sampling from a finite population. We consider two different topics: real time sampling and distributions in sampling. The main focus is on Papers A–C, where a somewhat special sampling situation referred to as real time sampling is studied. READ MORE

  3. 3. Metamodel-Based Multidisciplinary Design Optimization of Automotive Structures

    University dissertation from Linköping, Sweden : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Ann-Britt Ryberg; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; multidisciplinary design optimization MDO ; metamodel; artificial neural network ANN ; support vector machine SVM ; sequential sampling; crashworthiness; automotive structure; spot weld optimization;

    Abstract : Multidisciplinary design optimization (MDO) can be used in computer aided engineering (CAE) to efficiently improve and balance performance of automotive structures. However, large-scale MDO is not yet generally integrated within automotive product development due to several challenges, of which excessive computing times is the most important one. READ MORE

  4. 4. Dynamic Resampling for Preference-based Evolutionary Multi-objective Optimization of Stochastic Systems Improving the efficiency of time-constrained optimization

    University dissertation from Skövde : Högskolan i Skövde

    Author : Florian Siegmund; Högskolan i Skövde.; Högskolan i Skövde.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Evolutionary multi-objective optimization; simulation-based optimization; guided search; preference-based optimization; reference point; decision support; noise; stochastic systems; dynamic resampling; budget allocation; sequential sampling; hybrid; ranking and selection; Natural sciences; Naturvetenskap; Technology; Teknik;

    Abstract : In preference-based Evolutionary Multi-objective Optimization (EMO), the decision maker is looking for a diverse, but locally focused non-dominated front in a preferred area of the objective space, as close as possible to the true Pareto-front. Since solutions found outside the area of interest are considered less important or even irrelevant, the optimization can focus its efforts on the preferred area and find the solutions that the decision maker is looking for more quickly, i.

  5. 5. Design and analysis of response selective samples in observational studies

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Mathematics, Stockholm University

    Author : Maria Grünewald; Stockholms universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ascertainment; missing data; outcome dependent sampling; response selective samples; sequential design; stochastic EM algorithm; MATHEMATICS Applied mathematics Mathematical statistics; MATEMATIK Tillämpad matematik Matematisk statistik; matematisk statistik; Mathematical Statistics;

    Abstract : Outcome dependent sampling may increase efficiency in observational studies. It is however not always obvious how to sample efficiently, and how to analyze the resulting data without introducing bias. READ MORE
