    The upper bounds of the ruin probability for an insurance discrete-time risk model with proportional reinsurance and investment 

    Apichart Luesamai; Samruam Chongcharoen (National Institute of Development Administration, 2018)

    In this study, the two upper bounds of the ruin probability for discrete time risk model derived by adding two controlled factors to the classical discrete time risk model: proportional reinsurance and investment are proposed. These upper bounds are derived using an inductive method and rely on a recursive form of the finite time and/or an integral equation of ultimate (infinite time) of ruin probability which is also derived in this study. Both of the upper bounds are formulated by the assumption that the retention level of reinsurance a...

    A block diagonal covariance matrix test and discriminant analysis of high-dimensional data 

    Poompong Kaewumpai; Samruam Chongcharoen (National Institute of Development, 2017)

    In this dissertation, a new test statistic for testing for a block diagonal covariance matrix structure with a multivariate normal population where the number of variables p exceeds the number of observations n is proposed. Whereas classical approaches such as the likelihood ratio test cannot be applied when p n  , the proposed test statistic is based on the ratio of the estimators of 2 tr and 2 trD , where  is the population covariance matrix and D is the population covariance matrix under the null hypothesis. Furtherm...

    Tests for gamma distribution based on its independence property 

    Bandhita Plubin; Pachitjanut Siripanich (National Institute of Development Administration, 2015)

    There are two test statistics proposed in this study in order to test whether data come from a gamma distribution. Both of the proposed test statistics are developed from a modified Kendall coefficient based on the independence property of a gamma distribution. The first one is asymptotically distributed as standard normal and the limit distribution function of the second one was improved using an Edgeworth expansion and the Jackknife method. They are invariant to scale parameters and perform substantially better than existing tests in terms of...

    Tests for mean vectors in high-dimensional data 

    Knavoot Jiamwattanapong; Samruam Chongcharoen (National Institute of Development Administration, 2015)

    High-dimensional data are ubiquitous and bring new challenges, not only to statisticians, but also to researchers in many scientific fields. They arise in situations where the dimension ( p) , the number of variables in a unit, is larger than the sample size (n), the number of units; data analysis using classical multivariate methods can no longer be applied.

    Ajay Arunachalam; Ohm Sornil (National Institute of Development Administration, 2015)

    Resource discovery is the process to find the queried object also referred as resource searching. With the rapid development of mobile hardware and wireless internet access, it became feasible to use mobile devices in P2P network. Deploying unstructured Peer-to-Peer (P2P) applications over Mobile Ad-hoc Network (MANET) has seen a decade effort, but still has many limitations and challenges. Searching in such resultant networks are not efficient and further ineffective mainly due to mobility, peer discovery and connectivity issues. Typical resou...

    Risk-based overbooking model 

    Murati Soomboon; Kannapha Amaruchkul (National Institute of Development Administration, 2016)

    In this study, a two- class revenue management ( RM) model, which combines two of the most important RM strategies for a passenger airline: overbooking and seat inventory control is proposed. Using this model, it is possible to concurrently find both the optimal booking limit and the optimal overbooking limit. Consequently, on a closed- form expression for an optimal booking/ overbooking limit, sensitivity analysis was analytically assessed by changing model parameters such as revenue, the penalty cost associated with unsatisfied demand, the sh...

    Using conceptual space and cultural evolution in language game 

    Theerapol Limsatta; Ohm Sornil (National Institute of Development Administration, 2016)

    Agreement on word-object pairing in communication depends on the intensity of belief that gradually emerges in a society of agents under the condition that no one is born with embedded knowledge. In know-nothing word-object pairing, the agents in communication find meaning until they reach a consensus on what an object should be called. A language game is a social process of finding agreement on word-object pairing which enables its communication in a multi-agent system. In this research, techniques are proposed to discover the associatio...
