• On the de la Garza Phenomenon 

    Yang, Min, 1970 Oct. 28- (Institute of Mathematical Statistics, 2010)
    Deriving optimal designs for nonlinear models is, in general, challenging. One crucial step is to determine the number of support points needed. Current tools handle this on a case-by-case basis. Each combination of ...
  • Strong Consistency of MLE in Nonlinear Mixed-effects Models with Large Cluster Size 

    Nie, Lei; Yang, Min, 1970 Oct. 28- (Indian Statistical Institute, 2005)
    The search for conditions for the consistency of maximum likelihood estimators in nonlinear mixed effects models is difficult due to the fact that, in general, the likelihood can only be expressed as an integral over the ...
  • Support Points of Locally Optimal Designs for Nonlinear Models with Two Parameters 

    Yang, Min, 1970 Oct. 28-; Stufken, John (Institute of Mathematical Statistics, 2009)
    We propose a new approach for identifying the support points of a locally optimal design when the model is a nonlinear model. In contrast to the commonly used geometric approach, we use an approach based on algebraic tools. ...
  • Universal Optimality in Balanced Uniform Crossover Design 

    Hedayat, A.; Yang, Min, 1970 Oct. 28- (Institute of Mathematical Statistics, 2003)
    Kunert [Ann. Statist. 12 (1984) 1006-1017] proved that, in the class of repeated measurement designs based on t treatments, p = t periods and n = λt experimental units, a balanced uniform design is universally optimal for ...
