#### Common Errors in Statistics

Wiley 2006; US$ 84.95 US$ 73.62Praise for the First Edition of Common Errors in Statistics " . . . let me recommend Common Errors to all those who interact with statistics, whatever their level of statistical understanding . . . " --Stats 40 " . . . written . . . for the people who define good practice rather than seek to emulate it." --Journal of Biopharmaceutical Statistics... more...

#### Probability: A Graduate Course

Springer New York 2006; US$ 85.30This textbook on the theory of probability is aimed at graduate students. It starts with the basic tools, and goes on to cover a number of subjects in detail, including the three central planks of probability theory. more...

#### Nonparametric Monte Carlo Tests and Their Applications

Springer New York 2006; US$ 111.66A fundamental issue in statistical analysis is testing the fit of a particular probability model to a set of observed data. Monte Carlo approximation to the null distribution of the test provides a convenient and powerful means of testing model fit. Nonparametric Monte Carlo Tests and Their Applications proposes a new Monte Carlo-based methodology... more...

#### Probability and Random Processes

Wiley 2006; US$ 182.00 US$ 157.73A resource for probability AND random processes, with hundreds of worked examples and probability and Fourier transform tables This survival guide in probability and random processes eliminates the need to pore through several resources to find a certain formula or table. It offers a compendium of most distribution functions used by communication... more...

#### Statistical Analysis of Stochastic Processes in Time

Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 50.00This 2004 book introduces ways of modelling phenomena that occur over time. Covers stochastic processes, survival analysis, time series and more. more...

#### Robust Statistical Methods with R

CRC Press 2005; US$ 125.95Robust statistical methods were developed to supplement the classical procedures when the data violate classical assumptions. They are ideally suited to applied research across a broad spectrum of study, yet most books on the subject are narrowly focused, overly theoretical, or simply outdated. Robust Statistical Methods with R provides a systematic... more...

#### Statistical Inference Based on Divergence Measures

CRC Press 2005; US$ 121.95The idea of using functionals of Information Theory, such as entropies or divergences, in statistical inference is not new. However, in spite of the fact that divergence statistics have become a very good alternative to the classical likelihood ratio test and the Pearson-type statistic in discrete models, many statisticians remain unaware of this powerful... more...

#### Subjective Probability Models for Lifetimes

CRC Press 2001; US$ 139.95Bayesian methods in reliability cannot be fully utilized and understood without full comprehension of the essential differences that exist between frequentist probability and subjective probability. Switching from the frequentist to the subjective approach requires that some fundamental concepts be rethought and suitably redefined. Subjective Probability... more...

#### Linear Model Theory

Wiley 2006; US$ 151.00 US$ 130.87A precise and accessible presentation of linear model theory, illustrated with data examples Statisticians often use linear models for data analysis and for developing new statistical methods. Most books on the subject have historically discussed univariate, multivariate, and mixed linear models separately, whereas Linear Model Theory: Univariate,... more...

#### Uncertain Judgements

Wiley 2006; US$ 88.00 US$ 76.27Elicitation is the process of extracting expert knowledge about some unknown quantity or quantities, and formulating that information as a probability distribution. Elicitation is important in situations, such as modelling the safety of nuclear installations or assessing the risk of terrorist attacks, where expert knowledge is essentially the only... more...
