Fixed-Width Simultaneous Confidence Intervals for Multinormal Means in Several Intraclass Correlation Models


  • Aoshima, Makoto
  • Mukhopadhyay, Nitis


The problem of constructing fixed-width simultaneous confidence intervals for comparing mean vectors ofk([greater-or-equal, slanted]2) independent multivariate normal distributions is considered when those covariance matrices have the intraclass correlation structures. Two-stage procedures are developed for which the simultaneous confidence levels are shown to beat least1-[alpha], the preassigned nominal value, 0
