- Nonparametric Methods For Finding Change Points in Two Regime Regressions, collaborative work with S. Clark (SeaWorld, Orlando), G. Knofczynski (AASU Math), A. Rogers (M.S. student, Georgia Southern Math), J. Hudson (Ph.D. student, U. of Oregon Math), H. King (M.S. student, Georgia Southern Math). Research adapts and extends results of R. Quandt, a Princeton economist, to problems in marine biology. (AMSTAT meeting abstract.)
