#### Block Designs

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 136.00 US$ 123.76Combinatorial mathematicians and statisticians have made a wide range of contributions to the development of block designs, and this book brings together much of that work. The designs developed for a specific problem are used in a variety of different settings. Applications include controlled sampling, randomized response, validation and valuation... more...

#### Stochastic Systems In Merging Phase Space

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 109.00 US$ 99.19This book provides recent results on the stochastic approximation of systems by weak convergence techniques. General and particular schemes of proofs for average, diffusion, and Poisson approximations of stochastic systems are presented, allowing one to simplify complex systems and obtain numerically tractable models. The systems discussed in the book... more...

#### Probabilistic Symmetries and Invariance Principles

Springer New York 2006; US$ 158.59This book is about random objects?sequences, processes, arrays, measures, functionals?with interesting symmetry properties. Here symmetry should beunderstoodinthebroadsenseofinvarianceunderafamily(notnecessarily a group) of measurable transformations. To be precise, it is not the random objects themselves but rather their distributions that are assumed... more...

#### Leonhard Euler

Birkhäuser Basel 2007; US$ 42.28Euler was not only by far the most productive mathematician in the history of mankind, but also one of the greatest scholars of all time. He attained, like only a few scholars, a degree of popularity and fame which may well be compared with that of Galilei, Newton, or Einstein. Moreover he was a cosmopolitan in the truest sense of the word; he lived... more...

#### Basic Principles and Applications of Probability Theory

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2005; US$ 126.87Probability theory arose originally in connection with games of chance and then for a long time it was used primarily to investigate the credibility of testimony of witnesses in the ?ethical? sciences. Nevertheless, probability has become a very powerful mathematical tool in understanding those aspects of the world that cannot be described by deterministic... more...

#### Advances In Statistical Modeling And Inference

World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 241.00 US$ 219.31There have been major developments in the field of statistics over the last quarter century, spurred by the rapid advances in computing and data-measurement technologies. These developments have revolutionized the field and have greatly influenced research directions in theory and methodology. Increased computing power has spawned entirely new areas... more...
