#### 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...

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

Birkhäuser Basel 2010; US$ 163.44Transfer functions and characteristic functions proved to be key in operator theory and system theory. Moshe Livic played a major role in developing these functions, and this book of papers dedicated to his memory covers a wide variety of topics in the field. 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...

#### 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...
