The world has recently been  facing a very  serious  financial  crisis. It is
widely  agreed  that the inadequacies of systems of credit risk management
were largely to blame. The 2008 financial
crisis arose  largely  because
Credit  had  been too lax and has resulted in its suddenly becoming
too  restrictive

For planning purposes accurate information regarding population parameters of interest is essential. This information can be obtained through census or survey sampling. In sample surveys, the sampling strategy employed in a research is important since it determines the degree of accuracy.  Read more

A simulation-based Bayesian framework employing a prior distribution of the Dirichlet process to estimate the survival function in the presence of censoring is considered. The study provides a computational approach to obtaining the posterior distribution of a Read more

Various modeling techniques have been used to model road accidents. The suitability of the model depends on the quality of data and location. The model building methodology is usually selected based on the availability of data and accuracy of the data. Read more

This research examines the problem of decomposing digitized images, through linear or even nonlinear transformations, into statistically independent components. We would consider a compressed approximation of the random process that could be used to save computation and storage when used in place of the respective random process Read more

In statistical inference, one of the basic problems is that of estimating functionals. This problem is considered in the nonparametric set-up. The quality of estimation depends on smoothness properties of the functional F. However, non-smooth functional lack some degree of properties traditionally relied upon in estimation.Read more

Statistically, change point is the location or the time point such that observations follow one distribution up to the point and then another afterwards. Change point problems are encountered in our daily life and in disciplines such as economics ,finance, medicine, geology, literature among others.Read more
