#### Handbook of Statistical Distributions with Applications

Taylor and Francis 2006; US$ 104.95In 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...

#### Intermediate Probability

Wiley 2007; US$ 173.00Intermediate 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...

#### Medical Applications of Finite Mixture Models

Springer 2009; US$ 139.00Shows how to model heterogeneity in medical research with covariate adjusted finite mixture models. This book provides and summarizes the mathematical background necessary to understand the algorithms. It emphasises on a variety of medical applications such as gene expression data, meta-analysis and population pharmacokinetics. more...

#### Rare Event Simulation using Monte Carlo Methods

Wiley 2009; US$ 141.00In 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$ 183.00A 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...

#### Convergence of Probability Measures

Wiley 2013; US$ 179.00A new look at weak-convergence methods in metric spaces-from a master of probability theory In this new edition, Patrick Billingsley updates his classic work Convergence of Probability Measures to reflect developments of the past thirty years. Widely known for his straightforward approach and reader-friendly style, Dr. Billingsley presents a clear,... more...

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

Springer 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... more...

#### Hilbert Functions of Filtered Modules

Springer 2010; US$ 49.95Hilbert Functions play major roles in Algebraic Geometry and Commutative Algebra, and are becoming increasingly important also in Computational Algebra. They capture many useful numerical characters associated to a projective variety or to a filtered module over a local ring. Starting from the pioneering work of D.G. Northcott and J. Sally, we aim... more...
