1 TEST FOR EQUALITY OF PARAMETERS AND OF MODELS IN NONLINEAR REGRESSION Adair José REGAZZI, Universidade Federal de Viçosa, Departamento de Informática, CEP , Viçosa-MG, Brazil. In this paper we consider the adjustment of g nonlinear regression models. We present a framework for testing the following null hypothesis: (a) H 0 : the g nonlinear models are all identical, i.e., one single model can be adjusted; and (b) H 0 : a subset of the parameters from the g models are equal. We illustrate our proposed framework with the logistic growth model. The likelihood ratio test is used and the methodology is very general in the sense that it can be applied to any nonlinear regression model. Key words: likelihood ratio test, nonlinear regression, hypothesis test.

Considering a random sample of n lines from base population UFV-F, and that each line is crossed with s lines from opposite population UFV-D, there will be ns sampled crosses that are evaluated experimentally. The means of the ns sampled crosses and the remaining n(n - s) crosses can be predicted by the reduced model Y ˆ = mˆ + g + g. The analysis of variance is performed with the complete model ij i j Yij = µ + gi + gj + sij + e ij, and the sum of squares due to general combining ability were considered for each population separately. Results indicated that the proposed procedure may furnish reliable estimates of means of hybrids not available in the partial diallel.

This work consider the approach of Candolo (2001) who explored the weighted estimator proposed by Buckland et al. (1997) with application to linear regression. Here, we use simulation to study the behaviour of this estimator for Poisson regression with one and two covariates, considering a range of sample sizes and regression parameters. We get similar results for the approachs of Buckland et al. (1997) and Candolo (2001) and in the bootstrap cases the study is not yet conclusive.

19 AN ASYMPTOTIC NORMAL APPROACH FOR THE VARIANCE EXACT CONFIDENCE INTERVAL OF A NORMAL POPULATION Daniel Furtado FERREIRA Universidade Federal de Lavras Departamento de Ciências Exatas; Denismar Alves NOGUEIRA Universidade Federal de Lavras Departamento de Ciências Exatas; The variance of a population is an important parameter to be estimate. There are many areas that request precise estimates of the variance. The interval estimate has for purpose to express the precision of estimates of that parameter. This work aimed to present two confidence interval for the normal variance that result from the transformation of Wilson and Hilferty (1931) and from the asymptotic chi-square approach of Bishop, Fienberg and Holland (1975) and to evaluate its performances by means of Monte Carlo simulation using 2000 iterations. The confidence interval based on Wilson and Hilferty (1931) approach showed basically the same accuracy to the exact confidence interval to confidence coefficient varying from 10% to 99.99% and should be recommended for ν > 4; The interval based on the approach of Bishop, Fienberg and Holland (1975) can only be recommended for ν > 30, however the previous interval is considered better; The normal asymptotic interval presented robustness for non normal populations and it can be recommended to estimate variances of those populations in the absence of an exact or more efficient method for the situation in subject; The proposed confidence intervals do not need the estimate of chi-square quantis and present results similar to the exact interval. For great values of ν these methods possess larger accuracy, although in this situation the numerical methods are unstable for obtaining chi-square quantis; the educational value of those approaches should be considered for its uses and recommendations.

20 Paulo, ALEXANDRE RODRIGUES LOBO Ciências Farmacêuticas, Universidade de São Paulo, Researchers want to evaluate a possible Yacon benefit to calcium absorption on bones (femur and tibia) of growing mice. The purpose of this paper is design the researchers study providing information about the selection of experimental units proccess, sample size and suggestion of a suitable method to analyze the data.

Daniel Kashiwamura Scheffer, THE CHAID TECHNIQUE LIKE ALTERNATIVE FOR LOGRANK TEST IN SURVIVAL ANALISYS DANIELA MARCHI TIAGO Depto. de Estatística, Universidade Federal de São Carlos, e- mail: LAEL ALMEIDA DE OLIVEIRA Depto. de Estatística, Universidade Federal de São Carlos, The CHAID (Chi-square Automatic Interaction Detection) and Logrank techniques were compared in survival analysis situation. Bootstrap samples were used for Logrank s test and CHAID. Kappa s Coefficient indicated agreement between these techniques. The CHAID found another variables, however CHAID do not use the variable temp as Logrank. SEQUENCE ALIGNMENT IN LINEAR SPACE Deive Ciro de Oliveira Mestrando em Estatística UFLA, Lucas Monteiro Chaves Departamento de Ciências Exatas UFLA, UFLA Universidade Federal de Lavras (Cx. Postal 37 CEP Lavras - MG) The improvement of technical approaches is a useful tool to minimize the cost of problems resolution. This paper describes the implementation of a Sequence Alignment algorithm that depends on linear advanced data types (array). This algorithm is useful to solve Computational Biology problems. Key-words: Sequence Alignment, Linear Space Complexity, Computational Biology.
