Abstract : A number of topics in multivariate analysis were studied during this period. Technical reports were produced in the following areas -- rejection of multivariate outliers, multivariate gamma distributions and their applications in reliability, testing for positive quadrant dependence in ordinal contingency tables, convexity properties of entropy functions and analysis of diversity, use of diversity and distance measures in the analysis of qualitative data, inference on linear models with fixed effects, limit theorems for the eigenvalues of the sample covariance matrix, concepts of setwise dependence, convexity of bivariate elliptically contoured distributions, admissible linear estimation in singular linear models, standard errors of posterior distributions, and maximum likelihood fitting of STARMAX models to incomplete space-time series data. This report summarizes progress made during this period in these areas. (Author)
