#### An Introduction To Stein's Method

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 149.00A 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$ 163.00Stein'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...

#### Handbook of Statistical Distributions with Applications

CRC Press 2006; US$ 109.95Quite simply, this book is a masterwork. ... an essential resource for anyone who models data, or creates applications which require reference to, or make use of, statistical distribution functions or random variable sampling/generation. The accompanying PC program is a true application in its own right, neat, tidy, and very, very useful. To have... more...

#### Intermediate Probability

Wiley 2007; US$ 179.00Intermediate Probability is the natural extension of the author's Fundamental Probability. It details several highly important topics, from standard ones such as order statistics, multivariate normal, and convergence concepts, to more advanced ones which are usually not addressed at this mathematical level, or have never previously appeared in textbook... more...

#### Finite Mixture and Markov Switching Models

Springer 2006; US$ 179.00The past years have seen powerful computational tools for modeling which combine a Bayesian approach with Monte simulation techniques based on Markov chains. This book reviews these techniques and covers advances in the field. It also offers a presentation of the Bayesian perspective of finite mixture modelling. more...

#### Self-Normalized Processes

Springer 2008; US$ 99.00Self-normalized processes are of common occurrence in probabilistic and statistical studies. This volume covers developments in the area, including self-normalized large and moderate deviations, and laws of the iterated logarithms for self-normalized martingales. It treats the theory and applications of self-normalization. more...

#### Rare Event Simulation using Monte Carlo Methods

Wiley 2009; US$ 146.00In a probabilistic model, a rare event is an event with a very small probability of occurrence. The forecasting of rare events is a formidable task but is important in many areas. For instance a catastrophic failure in a transport system or in a nuclear power plant, the failure of an information processing system in a bank, or in the communication... more...
