#### Characteristic Functions, Scattering Functions and Transfer Functions

Birkhäuser Basel 2010; US$ 147.79The notions of transfer function and characteristic functions proved to be fundamental in the last fifty years in operator theory and in system theory. Moshe Livsic played a central role in developing these notions, and the book contains a selection of carefully chosen refereed papers dedicated to his memory. Topics include classical operator theory,... more...

#### Handbook of Fitting Statistical Distributions with R

CRC Press 2016; US$ 199.95With the development of new fitting methods, their increased use in applications, and improved computer languages, the fitting of statistical distributions to data has come a long way since the introduction of the generalized lambda distribution (GLD) in 1969. Handbook of Fitting Statistical Distributions with R presents the latest and best methods,... more...

#### Infinite Divisibility of Probability Distributions on the Real Line

CRC Press 2003; US$ 319.00Infinite Divisibility of Probability Distributions on the Real Line reassesses classical theory and presents new developments, while focusing on divisibility with respect to convolution or addition of independent random variables. This definitive, example-rich text supplies approximately 100 examples to correspond with all major chapter topics and... more...

#### Testing For Normality

CRC Press 2002; US$ 243.00Describes the selection, design, theory, and application of tests for normality. Covers robust estimation, test power, and univariate and multivariate normality. Contains tests ofr multivariate normality and coordinate-dependent and invariant approaches. more...

#### Information Theory And The Central Limit Theorem

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 96.00 US$ 87.36This book provides a comprehensive description of a new method of proving the central limit theorem, through the use of apparently unrelated results from information theory. It gives a basic introduction to the concepts of entropy and Fisher information, and collects together standard results concerning their behaviour. It brings together results from... more...

#### Large Deviations and Metastability

Cambridge University Press 2005; US$ 212.00Covers an area at intersection of probability theory and statistical mechanics. more...

#### An Introduction To Stein's Method

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 46.00 US$ 41.86A common theme in probability theory is the approximation of complicated probability distributions by simpler ones, the central limit theorem being a classical example. Stein's method is a tool which makes this possible in a wide variety of situations. Traditional approaches, for example using Fourier analysis, become awkward to carry through in situations... more...

#### Stein's Method And Applications

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 100.00 US$ 91.00Stein's startling technique for deriving probability approximations first appeared about 30 years ago. Since then, much has been done to refine and develop the method, but it is still a highly active field of research, with many outstanding problems, both theoretical and in applications. This volume, the proceedings of a workshop held in honour of... more...

#### Advances on Models, Characterizations and Applications

CRC Press 2005; US$ 132.95Statistical distributions are one of the most important applied mathematical tools across a wide spectrum of disciplines, including engineering, biological sciences, and health and social sciences. Since they are used to model observed data and ultimately to develop inferential procedures, understanding the properties of statistical distributions is... more...

#### Probability and Statistical Models with Applications

CRC Press 2000; US$ 159.95This monograph of carefully collected articles reviews recent developments in theoretical and applied statistical science, highlights current noteworthy results and illustrates their applications; and points out possible new directions to pursue. With its enlightening account of statistical discoveries and its numerous figures and tables, Probability... more...
