Seminar on Pre-test Estimation & Testing

Last Friday I gave a seminar in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, here at UVic. The Statistics seminar series is always very enjoyable, and I really enjoy interacting with this friendly and capable group.

My talk was titled, "The Effects of Prior Hypothesis Testing on the Sampling Properties of Estimators and Tests: An Overview". Preliminary test ( or pre-test) estimation (& testing) was a research topic that I was heavily involved in for about a decade, from the mid 1980's to the mid 1990's. A lot of that work was done with Judith Clarke. I've been looking at some related problems again recently.

If you're interested in this topic, you'll find the slides from my talk here.
