In the book Asymptotic theory of statistics and probability by Anirban DasGupta (, Springer Science & Business Media) in page Example I found the following approximation $$\Phi^{-1}\left(1-\frac{1}{n}\right)\approx \sqrt{2\log n}$$. Medians and quantiles We often want to summarize a frequency distribution in a few numbers, for ease of reporting or comparison. The most direct method is to use quantiles. The quantiles are values which divide the distribution such that there is a given proportion of observations below the quantile. For example, the median is a quantile.

Various theorems are proved in the chapter. Best strong approximations of the empirical process, and strong approximations of the quantile process are discussed. The chapter discusses the problem of approximating the quantile process by a sequence of Brownian bridges. Keywords: quantile processes, weak convergence, confidence bounds, approximations, Kiefers' theory - Hide Description Provides a comprehensive theory of the approximations of quantile processes in light of recent advances, as well as some of their statistical applications.

Recently, M. Csörgő, S. Csörgő, Horváth and Mason (a) obtained a weighted approximation to the uniform empirical and quantile processes by a sequence of Brownian bridges.

Strong approximation results and methodology are used to obtain in-probability representations of the empirical process when the parameters of the underlying distribution function are estimated.

These representations are obtained under a null hypothesis and a sequence of Cited by: Downloadable (with restrictions). In this paper, we consider the product-limit quantile estimator of an unknown quantile function under a truncated dependent model. This is a parallel problem to the estimation of the unknown distribution function by the product-limit estimator under the same model.

Quantile regression (QR) is a principal regression method for analyzing the impact of covariates on outcomes. The impact is described by the conditional quantile function and its functionals.

In this paper we develop the nonparametric QR-series framework, covering many regressors as a special case, for performing inference on the entire conditional quantile Cited by: There are many potential applications of quantile regression, e.g.

growth analysis where patients and physicians are interested in percentiles, VaR where the statistic itself is a quantile metric. In addition to this book, one may also take a look at the experimental version of quantile regression in SAS - the manual itself is pretty good also/5(10).

Quantile functions are used in both statistical applications and Monte Carlo methods. The quantile function is one way of prescribing a probability distribution, and it is an alternative to the probability density function (pdf) or probability mass function, the cumulative distribution function (cdf) and the characteristic function.

The presentation has been divided into two parts. Part I explores the approaches which have evolved from classical analytical techniques (condi tionin~, Fourier methods, symmetrization, triangular array theory). Part II is Msed on the quantile transform technique and utilizes weak and strong approximations to uniform empirical process.

This is a long-awaited book which fills a gap that was perhaps the widest in the whole literature on probability and statistics. Since many statistical procedures can be viewed as operations with functionals on the empirical process or the empirical distribution function, statistical problems have always motivated the development of.

Similarly, quantile regression can be used to estimate the relation of X with Y at a given quantile within the distribution of Y through a process that involves: (a) identifying which sample scores for Y are associated with the selected quantile(s) of interest and (b) estimating the coefficient(s) for the independent variable(s).

The relation between a given quantile (τ) and a selected score. de nes the ˝-quantile of F Y (or Y). The basic strategy behind quantile esti-mation arises from the observation that minimizing the ‘ 1-loss function yields the median.

Koenker and Basset [22] generalized this idea and characterized the ˝-quantile by tilting the absolute value function in a suitable fashion. A stochastic process constructed from a sample and the corresponding probability be a sequence of independent random elements with common law, taking values in a measurable empirical measure of the first s is the discrete random measure that places mass on each such.
