• # Analysis of Stable Targets in High-Resolution Polarimetric SAR Data Stacks

Polarimetric SAR data provide information about the scattering of the area observed. The availability of data stacks allows the identification of stable targets and subsequent scattering analysis with a high degree of confidence at full resolution.

• # Comparing Measures of Association in 2×2 Probability Tables

Measures of association play a role in selecting 2×2 tables exhibiting strong dependence in high-dimensional binary data. Several measures are in use differing on specific tables and in their dependence on the margins.

• # A New Acceptance Sampling Plans Based on Percentiles for Odds Exponential Log Logistic Distribution

In this paper, acceptance sampling plans are developed for the odds exponential log logistic distribution (OELLD) introduced by Rosaiah et al.

• # A New Class of Distributions Based on Hurwitz Zeta Function with Applications for Risk Management

This paper constructs a new family of distributions, which is based on the Hurwitz zeta function, which includes novel distributions as well important known distributions such as the normal, gamma, Weibull, Maxwell-Boltzmann and the exponential power distributions.

### Comparing Different Information Levels

Uwe Saint-Mont

#### Objective:

Given a sequence of random variables X = X1, X2, . . .suppose the aim is to maximize one’s return by picking a ‘favorable’ Xi. Obviously, the expected payoff crucially depends on the information at hand. An optimally informed person knows all the values Xi = xi and thus receives E(sup Xi).

#### Method:

We will compare this return to the expected payoffs of a number of gamblers having less information, in particular supi(EXi), the value of the sequence to a person who only knows the random variables’ expected values.

In general, there is a stochastic environment, (F.E. a class of random variables C), and several levels of information. Given some XϵC, an observer possessing information j obtains rj(X). We are going to study ‘information sets’ of the form.

characterizing the advantage of k relative to j. Since such a set measures the additional payoff by virtue of increased information, its analysis yields a number of interesting results, in particular ‘prophet-type’ inequalities.
