Nonparametric statistics

Partial correlation for censored data
    A test for partial correlation between three variables, any or all of which are subject to censoring, based on a generalized Kendall's tau. Developed for astronomy by M. Akritas (Penn State) and J. Siebert (MPI).

REMEDIAN
    A robust average method for very large datasets based on a median of medians of subsets that fit into computer memory or which stream by without being stored.  By P. Rousseeuw of University of Antwerp.

Sn
    Robust location-free estimation of scale (spread) for univariate data.  Two efficient algorithms are presented. By P. Pousseeuw of University of Antwerp.
