"Efficient Crossover Designs and Limit Theories for Sample Covariances
of Long-Memory Linear Processes"
The talk will cover topics in two areas of statistics, namely
experimental designs and time series.
In crossover designs, it suffices to consider a linear model with
effects of subjects, periods, direct and first-order carryover effects
of treatments in most applications. We allowed the subject effects to
be random, and thus included the fixed subject effects model as a
special case. Efficient designs are proposed under this more flexible
model. We also studied statistical properties and methods of
constructions of these designs.
For a time series, plot of sample covariances is a popular way to
assess its dependence properties. We gave a systematic
characterization of asymptotic behavior of sample covariances of
long-memory linear processes. Central and non-central limit theorems
are obtained for sample covariances with bounded as well as unbounded
lags. It is shown that the limiting distribution depends in a very
interesting way on the strength of dependence, the heavy-tailedness of
the innovations and the magnitude of the lags.

See you there!
