#### 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...

#### Handbook of Statistical Distributions with Applications

CRC Press 2006; US$ 109.95In the area of applied statistics, scientists use statistical distributions to model a wide range of practical problems, from modeling the size grade distribution of onions to modeling global positioning data. To apply these probability models successfully, practitioners and researchers must have a thorough understanding of the theory as well as a... more...

#### Stochastic Orders

Springer New York 2007; US$ 189.00This reference text presents comprehensive coverage of the various notions of stochastic orderings, their closure properties, and their applications. It is an ideal reference for anyone interested in decision making under uncertainty. more...

#### Intermediate Probability

Wiley 2007; US$ 185.00Intermediate 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...

#### Self-Normalized Processes

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2008; US$ 89.99This volume covers recent developments in self-normalized processes, including self-normalized large and moderate deviations, and laws of the iterated logarithms for self-normalized martingales. more...

#### Rare Event Simulation using Monte Carlo Methods

Wiley 2009; US$ 151.00In 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...

#### Weibull Models

Wiley 2004; US$ 195.00A comprehensive perspective on Weibull models The literature on Weibull models is vast, disjointed, and scattered across many different journals. Weibull Models is a comprehensive guide that integrates all the different facets of Weibull models in a single volume. This book will be of great help to practitioners in reliability and other disciplines... more...

#### Advances in Distribution Theory, Order Statistics, and Inference

Birkhäuser Boston 2007; US$ 319.00Barry Arnold has made fundamental contributions to many different areas of statistics, including distribution theory, Bayesian inference, multivariate analysis, bounds and orderings, and characterization problems. Organized to honor Arnold?s significant contributions to the field, this volume is an outgrowth of the "International Conference on Distribution... more...

#### Hilbert Functions of Filtered Modules

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2010; US$ 49.95Starting from the pioneering work of D.G. Northcott and J. Sally, this volume presents new developments of Hilbert Functions in one cohesive reference. The text applies the theory to the study of certain graded algebras which are not associated to a filtration. more...
