#### Robust Estimation and Hypothesis Testing

New Age International Pvt. Ltd., Publishers 2004; US$ 35.00In statistical theory and practice, a certain distribution is usually assumed and then optimal solutions sought. Since deviations from an assumed distribution are very common, one cannot feel comfortable with assuming a particular distribution and believing it to be exactly correct. That brings the robustness issue in focus. In this book, we have given... more...

#### The Analysis of Cross-Classified Categorical Data

Springer New York 2007; Not AvailableA variety of biological and social science data come in the form of cross-classified tables of counts, commonly referred to as contingency tables. Until recent years the statistical and computational techniques available for the analysis of cross-classified data were quite limited. This book presents some of the recent work on the statistical analysis... more...

#### Weak Dependence: With Examples and Applications

Springer New York 2007; US$ 149.00Time series and random ?elds are main topics in modern statistical techniques. They are essential for applications where randomness plays an important role. Indeed, physical constraints mean that serious modelling cannot be done - ing only independent sequences. This is a real problem because asymptotic properties are not always known in this case.... more...

#### Probability and Statistics by Example: Volume 2, Markov Chains: A Primer in Random Processes and their Applications

Cambridge University Press 2008; US$ 72.00 US$ 59.04The subject is critical in many modern applications such as mathematical finance, quantitative management, insurance and actuarial studies. more...

#### Markov Processes and Applications

Wiley 2008; US$ 99.00 US$ 85.80"This well-written book provides a clear and accessible treatment of the theory of discrete and continuous-time Markov chains, with an emphasis towards applications. The mathematical treatment is precise and rigorous without superfluous details, and the results are immediately illustrated in illuminating examples. This book will be extremely useful... more...

#### Een dag zonder wiskunde is een dag zonder fouten

Amsterdam University Press 2002; US$ 10.50#### Level Sets and Extrema of Random Processes and Fields

Wiley 2009; US$ 149.00 US$ 129.13A timely and comprehensive treatment of random field theory with applications across diverse areas of study Level Sets and Extrema of Random Processes and Fields discusses how to understand the properties of the level sets of paths as well as how to compute the probability distribution of its extremal values, which are two general classes of problems... more...

#### Statistics of Extremes

Wiley 2006; US$ 156.00 US$ 135.20Research in the statistical analysis of extreme values has flourished over the past decade: new probability models, inference and data analysis techniques have been introduced; and new application areas have been explored. Statistics of Extremes comprehensively covers a wide range of models and application areas, including risk and insurance: a major... more...
