#### Stochastic Orders

Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2007; US$ 199.00Stochastic ordering is a fundamental guide for decision making under uncertainty. This text covers the various notions of stochastic orderings, their closure properties, and their applications. It is intended for those who are interested in decision making under uncertainty and in the analysis of complex stochastic systems. more...

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

Springer 2010; US$ 189.00The 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...

#### Information Theory And The Central Limit Theorem

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 156.00This 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.
