Distribution (Probability theory)

Most popular at the top

  • Rare Event Simulation using Monte Carlo Methodsby Gerardo Rubino; Bruno Tuffin

    Wiley 2009; US$ 141.00

    In 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...

  • A Weak Convergence Approach to the Theory of Large Deviationsby Paul Dupuis; Richard S. Ellis

    Wiley 2011; US$ 209.00

    Applies the well-developed tools of the theory of weak convergence of probability measures to large deviation analysis--a consistent new approach The theory of large deviations, one of the most dynamic topics in probability today, studies rare events in stochastic systems. The nonlinear nature of the theory contributes both to its richness and difficulty.... more...

  • Convergence of Probability Measuresby Patrick Billingsley

    Wiley 2013; US$ 179.00

    A 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...

  • Sortingby Hosam M. Mahmoud

    Wiley 2011; US$ 198.00

    A cutting-edge look at the emerging distributional theory of sorting Research on distributions associated with sorting algorithms has grown dramatically over the last few decades, spawning many exact and limiting distributions of complexity measures for many sorting algorithms. Yet much of this information has been scattered in disparate and highly... more...

  • Finite Mixture Modelsby Geoffrey McLachlan; David Peel

    Wiley 2004; US$ 189.00

    An up-to-date, comprehensive account of major issues in finite mixture modeling This volume provides an up-to-date account of the theory and applications of modeling via finite mixture distributions. With an emphasis on the applications of mixture models in both mainstream analysis and other areas such as unsupervised pattern recognition, speech recognition,... more...

  • Continuous Multivariate Distributionsby Samuel Kotz; N. Balakrishnan; Norman L. Johnson

    Wiley 2004; US$ 261.00

    Continuous Multivariate Distributions, Volume 1, Second Edition provides a remarkably comprehensive, self-contained resource for this critical statistical area. It covers all significant advances that have occurred in the field over the past quarter century in the theory, methodology, inferential procedures, computational and simulational aspects,... more...

  • Intermediate Probabilityby Marc Paolella

    Wiley 2007; US$ 173.00

    Intermediate 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...

  • Extreme Values in Finance, Telecommunications, and the Environmentby Barbel Finkenstadt; Holger Rootzen

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 159.95

    Because of its potential to ...predict the unpredictable,... extreme value theory (EVT) and methodology is currently receiving a great deal of attention from statistical and mathematical researchers. This book brings together world-recognized authorities in their respective fields to provide expository chapters on the applications, use, and theory... more...

  • Fitting Statistical Distributionsby Zaven A. Karian; Edward J. Dudewicz

    Taylor and Francis 2000; US$ 164.95

    Throughout 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...

  • Large Deviations and Idempotent Probabilityby Anatolii Puhalskii

    Taylor and Francis 2001; US$ 154.95

    In 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...
