139(8): 27062714, 1 August 2009. Available at arXiv.org .
Xu and Wu (2001) defined the generalized wordlength
pattern (GWLP) of a design by indexing the levels of each factor by a
cyclic group. When the number of levels of a factor is composite,
other choices of abelian group are possible. We show that the GWLP is
independent of this choice, although the socalled Jcharacteristics
(defined by Ai and Zhang, 2004) are not.

This is the third in a series, following
Beder&Gomulkiewicz (1998) below. We compute the selection
differential and (especially) the selection gradient for a Gaussian
trait with a "Gaussian" fitness function that models optimizing
selection. The paper relies in part on Lukic&Beder (2001).

This is a followup to the paper, "On Rao's inequalities for
arrays of strength d," below, but with a simpler approach. It
includes a couple of applications to aliasing in nonregular
fractions.

The article reviews two papers of Fortet and some related
results, but Section 3 of the published version is rather out of date.
An updated (unpublished) version is available online in dvi , ps
(postscript), or pdf format. Section
3 summarizes results from Lukic and Beder (2001) below.

Computing the selection gradient and evolutionary response of an

This is a followup of Gomulkiewicz and Beder (1996) below, and
includes (among other things) the rigorous development for
infinitedimensional traits of the socalled Breeder's Equation.
Applications show how to compute gradients.

This gives a rigorous development of the modeling of
infinitedimentional traits, in particular the selection differential
and selection gradient. Lost in the biology is an interesting (to me)
"derivative" which (I think) may be useful in other applications: The
functional gradient of E_m(W), where m is the mean of a Gaussian
process and W is a function of the process. (The analog in
multivariate analysis would be the directional derivative of E(W) with
respect to the mean vector.)

I mention this mainly because the title scans in perfect dactylic
tetrameter. However, the contents were not without value. The only
paper that comes directly out of the dissertation is the "Estimating
... unknown scale parameter" (1988). But the material became the
foundation for the two main sieve papers (Ann. Statist., 1987
and 1988).
