#### Benford's Law

Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 75.00Benford?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...

#### Laws of Small Numbers: Extremes and Rare Events

Springer Basel 2010; US$ 89.95The mathematical theory and applications of extremes and rare events have developed much since this book was first published in 1994. This third edition includes details of multivariate generalized Pareto distributions and their testing and estimation. 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$ 167.00Designed 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$ 140.00There 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...

#### Conditional Measures and Applications

CRC Press 2005; US$ 132.95In response to unanswered difficulties in the generalized case of conditional expectation and to treat the topic in a well-deservedly thorough manner, M.M. Rao gave us the highly successful first edition of Conditional Measures and Applications. Until this groundbreaking work, conditional probability was relegated to scattered journal articles and... 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...

#### Fitting Statistical Distributions

CRC Press 2000; US$ 172.95Throughout the physical and social sciences, researchers face the challenge of fitting statistical distributions to their data. Although the study of statistical modelling has made great strides in recent years, the number and variety of distributions to choose from-all with their own formulas, tables, diagrams, and general properties-continue to create... more...
