- How Is Entrepreneurship Good for Economic Development? Bansal, Anand // IUP Journal of Entrepreneurship Development;Jun2012, Vol. 9 Issue 2, p7
Entrepreneurship is recognized as a prerequisite for sound and sustained economic development of a country. The issue of entrepreneurship does not merely contribute to further enhancement of academic knowledge as regards its relationship with economic development, but also provides impetus to...
- Keynes on probability and statistical inference and the links to Fisher. Conniffe, Denis // Cambridge Journal of Economics;Dec92, Vol. 16 Issue 4, p475
Presents views of economist John Maynard Keynes on probability and statistical inference. Dominance of Fisherian methodology in statistics; Discussion on the axiomatic approach in statistics; Persistence of Keynesian ideas in the Fisherian approach.
- P Value and the Theory of Hypothesis Testing: An Explanation for New Researchers. Biau, David Jean; Jolles, Brigitte M.; Porcher, Rapha�l // Clinical Orthopaedics & Related Research;Mar2010, Vol. 468 Issue 3, p885
In the 1920s, Ronald Fisher developed the theory behind the p value and Jerzy Neyman and Egon Pearson developed the theory of hypothesis testing. These distinct theories have provided researchers important quantitative tools to confirm or refute their hypotheses. The p value is the probability...

- Data Fusion for Electromagnetic and Electrical Resistive Tomography Based on Maximum Likelihood. Nordebo, Sven; Gustafsson, Mats; Sj�den, Therese; Soldovieri, Francesco // International Journal of Geophysics;2011, p1
This paper presents a maximum likelihood based approach to data fusion for electromagnetic (EM) and electrical resistive (ER) tomography. The statistical maximum likelihood criterion is closely linked to the additive Fisher information measure, and it facilitates an appropriate weighting of the...
- R. A. Fisher and his advocacy of randomization. Hall, Nancy S. // Journal of the History of Biology;Summer2007, Vol. 40 Issue 2, p295
The article suggests that British statistician and geneticist, Ronald A. Fisher, saw what was attained by the randomness of sampling analyses. Fisher pioneered the application of statistical procedures to the design of scientific experiment. The first part of this report distinguishes...
