#### 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...

#### Israel Gohberg and Friends

Birkhäuser Basel 2008; US$ 69.99This book is dedicated to Israel Gohberg on occasion of his 80th birthday on 2008. It contains reflections by Gohberg himself on his own mathematical activities and those of others. It presents the way in which he influenced the lives of many mathematicians. more...

#### Quasi-Stationary Phenomena in Nonlinearly Perturbed Stochastic Systems

De Gruyter 2008; US$ 266.00This book is devoted to the mathematical studies of stochastic systems with quasi-stationary phenomena which have applications to population dynamics or epidemic models. In addition to its use for the research and reference purposes, the book can also be used in special courses on the subject and as a complementary reading in general courses... more...

#### Optimal Stopping Rules

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 89.99Although three decades have passed since first publication of this book reprinted now as a result of popular demand, the content remains up-to-date and interesting for many researchers as is shown by the many references to it in current publications. The "ground floor" of Optimal Stopping Theory was constructed by A.Wald in his sequential... more...

#### Data Manipulation with R

Springer New York 2008; US$ 79.99This book presents an array of methods applicable for reading data into R, and efficiently manipulating that data. In addition to the built-in functions, a number of readily available packages from CRAN (the Comprehensive R Archive Network) are also covered. 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; Not AvailableTime 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$ 72.00The 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"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...
