Binomial test statistics using Psi functions
Abstract
For the negative binomial model (probability generating function (p + 1  pt){sup k}) a logarithmic derivative is the Psi function difference {psi}(k + x)  {psi}(k); this and its derivatives lead to a test statistic to decide on the validity of a specified model. The test statistic uses a data base so there exists a comparison available between theory and application. Note that the test function is not dominated by outliers. Applications to (i) Fisher's tick data, (ii) accidents data, (iii) Weldon's dice data are included.

Application of the binomial distribution statistics for the estimation of the precision of activation analysis
It is pointed out that the statistical component of the total error in activation analysis is in all practical cases subject to the Poisson distribution. (auth) 
High Statistics Analysis using Anisotropic Clover Lattices: (I) Single Hadron Correlation Functions
We present the results of highstatistics calculations of correlation functions generated with singlebaryon interpolating operators on an ensemble of dynamical anisotropic gaugefield configurations generated by the Hadron Spectrum Collaboration using a tadpoleimproved clover fermion action and Symanzikimproved gauge action.

High Statistics Analysis using Anisotropic Clover Lattices: (I) Single Hadron Correlation Functions
We present the results of highstatistics calculations of correlation functions generated with singlebaryon interpolating operators on an ensemble of dynamical anisotropic gaugefield configurations generated by the Hadron Spectrum Collaboration using a tadpoleimproved clover fermion action and Symanzikimproved gauge action. A total of 292, 500 sets of measurements are made using 1194 gauge configurations of size 20{sup 3} x 128 with an anisotropy parameter {zeta} = b{sub s}/b{sub t} = 3.5, a spatial lattice spacing of b{sub s} = 0.1227 {+} 0.0008 fm, and pion mass of M{sub {pi}} {approx} 390 MeV. Ground state baryons masses are extracted with fully quantifiedmore »
