#### Rare Event Simulation using Monte Carlo Methods

Wiley 2009; US$ 146.00In 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...

#### A Weak Convergence Approach to the Theory of Large Deviations

Wiley 2011; US$ 216.00Applies 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...

#### Fitting Statistical Distributions

Taylor and Francis 2000; US$ 164.95Throughout 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...
