Abstract : Three problem areas were identified and studied: nonparametric estimation with truncated data; asymptotic expansions for randomly stopped sums (with a view towards finding corrected confidence intervals in sequential problems); and asymptotic local minimaxity in sequential estimation. In addition, some effort was devoted to understanding optimal sequential designs. The final report contains complete results of the research. Keywords: Sampling; Estimation; Truncated data; Asymptotic expansions; Confidence intervals; Optimal sequential designs.
