#### 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...

#### 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...

#### 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...

#### 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...

#### 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...

#### The Theory of Distributions

Cambridge University Press 1990; US$ 40.00A self-contained mathematical introduction that concentrates on the essential results important to non-specialists. more...

#### Gaussian Hilbert Spaces

Cambridge University Press 1997; US$ 72.00This book treats the fundamental mathematical properties that hold for a family of Gaussian random variables. more...

#### Uniform Central Limit Theorems

Cambridge University Press 1999; US$ 46.00This treatise by an acknowledged expert includes several topics not found in any previous book. more...

#### Laws of Small Numbers

Springer 2010; US$ 89.95Since the publication of the first edition of this seminar book in 1994, the theory and applications of extremes and rare events have enjoyed an enormous and still increasing interest. The intention of the book is to give a mathematically oriented development of the theory of rare events underlying various applications. This characteristic of the book... more...

#### A History of the Central Limit Theorem

Springer 2010; US$ 199.00This study discusses the history of the central limit theorem and related probabilistic limit theorems from about 1810 through 1950. In this context the book also describes the historical development of analytical probability theory and its tools, such as characteristic functions or moments. The central limit theorem was originally deduced by Laplace... more...
