#### Identifiability In Stochastic Models

Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95The problem of identifiability is basic to all statistical methods and data analysis, occurring in such diverse areas as Reliability Theory, Survival Analysis, and Econometrics, where stochastic modeling is widely used. Mathematics dealing with identifiability per se is closely related to the so-called branch of "characterization problems" in Probability... more...

#### Benford's Law

Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 75.00 US$ 60.00Benford?s law states that the leading digits of many data sets are not uniformly distributed from one through nine, but rather exhibit a profound bias. This bias is evident in everything from electricity bills and street addresses to stock prices, population numbers, mortality rates, and the lengths of rivers. Here, Steven Miller brings together many... more...

#### Exponentiated Distributions

Atlantis Press 2015; US$ 89.99This book contains entirely new results, not to be found elsewhere. Furthermore, additional results scattered elsewhere in the literature are clearly presented. Several well-known distributions such as Weibull distributions, exponentiated Burr type XII distributions and exponentiated exponential distributions and their properties are demonstrated.... more...

#### Topics in Statistical Simulation

Springer New York 2014; US$ 169.00The Department of Statistical Sciences of the University of Bologna in collaboration with the Department of Management and Engineering of the University of Padova, the Department of Statistical Modelling of Saint Petersburg State University, and INFORMS Simulation Society sponsored the Seventh Workshop on Simulation. This international conference... more...

#### Stable Convergence and Stable Limit Theorems

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 89.99The authors present a concise but complete exposition of the mathematical theory of stable convergence and give various applications in different areas of probability theory and mathematical statistics to illustrate the usefulness of this concept. Stable convergence holds in many limit theorems of probability theory and statistics ? such as the classical... more...

#### Handbook of Exponential and Related Distributions for Engineers and Scientists

CRC Press 2005; US$ 159.95The normal distribution is widely known and used by scientists and engineers. However, there are many cases when the normal distribution is not appropriate, due to the data being skewed. Rather than leaving you to search through journal articles, advanced theoretical monographs, or introductory texts for alternative distributions, the Handbook of Exponential... more...

#### A Primer on Statistical Distributions

Wiley 2004; US$ 173.00 US$ 149.93Designed as an introduction to statistical distribution theory. * Includes a first chapter on basic notations and definitions that are essential to working with distributions. * Remaining chapters are divided into three parts: Discrete Distributions, Continuous Distributions, and Multivariate Distributions. * Exercises are incorporated throughout... more...

#### Discrete Distributions

Wiley 2005; US$ 145.00 US$ 125.67There have been many advances in the theory and applications of discrete distributions in recent years. They can be applied to a wide range of problems, particularly in the health sciences, although a good understanding of their properties is very important. Discrete Distributions: Applications in the Health Sciences describes a number of new discrete... more...

#### Large Deviations and Idempotent Probability

CRC Press 2001; US$ 159.95In the view of many probabilists, author Anatolii Puhalskii's research results stand among the most significant achievements in the modern theory of large deviations. In fact, his work marked a turning point in the depth of our understanding of the connections between the large deviation principle (LDP) and well-known methods for establishing weak... more...

#### Entropy, Large Deviations, and Statistical Mechanics

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 69.99From the reviews: "... Besides the fact that the author's treatment of large deviations is a nice contribution to the literature on the subject, his book has the virue that it provides a beautifully unified and mathematically appealing account of certain aspects of statistical mechanics. ... Furthermore, he does not make the mistake of assuming... more...
