In a problem of comparing means of two populations we may come across the following conditions depending on the property of data.
(a)Pooled variance: when the data selected for comparing two population variance.
Then we used polled variance to draw interefences and compare the means.
It s12 and s22 are the sample variances of two population with equal population variances, then "pooled variance" is given by
sp2 = (n1  1) s12 + (n2  1) s22n1 + n2  2
In this case, the test statistic for comparing means is given by
A = x1x2sp1n1+1n2 with (n1 + n2  2) df
(b)Non - pooled variance:
On the contrary the property discused in part(a) about the data, when the populations variances of two populations are assumed to be unequal, then non-pooled variance is used to compare the means of two population.
It is given as
S non-pooled = s12n1 + s22n2
and the test statistic is
A = x1x2sps12n1+s22n2
(c)Paired interfence(Pained test):
Let us consider the case when
(i) sample a sizes are equal and
(ii) the samples are not independent but the sample observations are painted together.
i.e. the pair of observations(x,iy.i) (i=1,2..n)
comprresponding to the same i-th unit.
For example. Suppose we want to test the effiency of a particular drug, say, for inducing sleep.Let xi and yi (i = 1..n) be the readings, in hours of sleep, an the i-th individual before and after the drug is givenrespectively.

I have the following data on duration that different aged adults can remain standing.
 Age   Sample Size   Sample Mean   Sample Std Dev   Old  28 801 117  Young  16 780 72
The data I'm using has a normal distribution with the same variances. I want to do a test of hypotheses however at a significance level of 5% (a=0.05) to be able to confirm whether or not the average duration that older adults can remain standing is larger than among younger adults.

I'm not sure which of the different formulas I should use however to determine this due to my sample size being relatively small. Should I be using the following test.

to compute pooled standard deviation: s 2 = ( 1 1 ) s 1 2 + ( n 2 1 ) s 2 2 n 1 + n 2 2

compute test statistics: t = y 1 y 2 0 s 1 n 1 + 1 n 2

When σ is unknown and the sample size is n30, there are tow methods for computing confidence intervals for μμ. Method 1: Use the Student's t distribution with d.f. = n - 1. This is the method used in the text. It is widely employed in statistical studies. Also, most statistical software packages use this method. Method 2: When n30, use the sample standard deviation s as an estimate for σσ, and then use the standard normal distribution. This method is based on the fact that for large samples, s is a fairly good approximation for σσ. Also, for large n, the critical values for the Student's t distribution approach those of the standard normal distribution. Consider a random sample of size n = 31, with sample mean x¯=45.2 and sample standard deviation s = 5.3. (c) Compare intervals for the two methods. Would you say that confidence intervals using a Student's t distribution are more conservative in the sense that they tend to be longer than intervals based on the standard normal distribution?

Linear multivariate recurrences with constant coefficients
In the theory of univariate linear recurrences with constant coefficients, there is a general method of solving initial value problems based on characteristic polynomials. I would like to ask, if any similar method is known for multivariate linear recurrences with constant coefficients. E.g., if there is a general method for solving recurrences like this:
f ( n + 1 , m + 1 ) = 2 f ( n + 1 , m ) + 3 f ( n , m ) f ( n 1 , m ) , f ( n , 0 ) = 1 , f ( 0 , m ) = m + 2.
Moreover, is their any method for solving recurrences in several variables, when the recurrence goes only by one of the variables? E.g., recurrences like this:
f ( n + 1 , m ) = f ( n , 2 m ) + f ( n 1 , 0 ) , f ( 0 , m ) = m .
This second question is equivalent to the question, if there is a method of solving infinite systems of linear univariate recurrences with constant coefficients. That is, using these optics, the second recurrence becomes f m ( n + 1 ) = f 2 m ( n ) + f 0 ( n 1 ) , f m ( 0 ) = m , m = 0 , 1 , .
I am not interested in a solution of any specific recurrence, but in solving such recurrences in general, or at least in finding out some of the properties of possible solutions. For instance, for univariate linear recurrences, each solution has a form c 1 p 1 ( n ) z 1 n + + c k p k ( n ) z k n ,, where c i 's are constants, p i 's are polynomials and z i 's are complex numbers. Does any similar property hold for some class of recurrences similar to what I have written?
I have been googling a lot, but have found only methods for some very special cases (in monographs on partial difference equations, etc.), but nothing general enough. I am not asking for a detailed explanation of any method, but references to the literature would be helpful. I don't know much about transforms (like discrete Fourier transform or z-transform), but I found certain hints that there could be a method based on these techniques. Is it possible to develop something general enough using transform, i.e., is the study of transforms worth an effort (in the context of solving these types of recurrences)? However, it seems to me that the generalization of the characteristic polynomial method (perhaps, some operator-theoretic approach) could lead to more general results. Has there been any research on this topic?
