Title: Empirical Bayes on a shoestring and other applications Authors:  Mayer Alvo - University of Ottawa (Canada) [presenting]
Abstract: The Pearson system of distributions is exploited to obtain expressions for the posterior mean and posterior variance in Tweedie's formula. This has interesting consequences in the study of micro-array data where the interest is uncovering unusual genes. Another application deals with the development of new non-parametric tests for the two sample problems of location and of scale. These tests are based on an approximation of the locally optimal score test statistics.
