22.03.2018 - FLNR Scientific Seminar "Nonparametric method of low statistics testing of exponential distributions "purity", 15-30, Flerov Lab Conference Hall
Speaker: V.B.Zlokazov, LIT JINR)
Some novel physical experiments result in a very small set of data and very scarce a priori information on distribution function parameters (synthesis of superheavy elements is a typical example).
Nonparametric methods are used for analysis of such data. They are low-sensitive to the data statistics and to the amount of information on distribution parameters. This work offers such nonparametric criteria to verify distribution "purity" - the sample median/mean ratio.
This criteria works very well for testing of exponential distribution "purity". But it may be applied for many other distributions as well and first of all for normal distribution.
