#### 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...

#### Large Deviations and Idempotent Probability

Taylor and Francis 2001; US$ 154.95In 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...

#### Elements of Distribution Theory

Cambridge University Press 2005; US$ 44.00This introduction to distribution theory uses no measure theory, making it suitable for students in statistics and econometrics and researchers using statistical methods. more...

#### Life Distributions

Springer 2007; US$ 179.00Devoted to the study of univariate distributions appropriate for the analyses of data known to be non-negative, this book includes material from reliability theory in engineering and survival analysis in medicine. more...

#### Statistische Versuchsplanung

Springer 2010; US$ 99.00Die statistische Versuchsplanung (Design of Experiment, DoE) ist ein Verfahren zur Analyse von (technischen) Systemen. Dieses Verfahren ist universell einsetzbar und eignet sich sowohl zur Produkt- als auch zur Prozessoptimierung, insbesondere dann, wenn viele Einflussgrößen zu berücksichtigen sind. Hauptanliegen der Autoren ist es, die Planung und... more...

#### Copula Theory and Its Applications

Springer 2010; US$ 149.00Copulas are mathematical objects that fully capture the dependence structure among random variables and hence offer great flexibility in building multivariate stochastic models. Since their introduction in the early 50's, copulas have gained considerable popularity in several fields of applied mathematics, such as finance, insurance and reliability... more...

#### Modelling Operational Risk Using Bayesian Inference

Springer 2011; US$ 129.00The management of operational risk in the banking industry has undergone explosive changes over the last decade due to substantial changes in the operational environment. Globalization, deregulation, the use of complex financial products, and changes in information technology have resulted in exposure to new risks which are very different from market... more...

#### Using the Weibull Distribution

Wiley 2012; US$ 124.00Understand and utilize the latest developments in Weibull inferential methods While the Weibull distribution is widely used in science and engineering, most engineers do not have the necessary statistical training to implement the methodology effectively. Using the Weibull Distribution: Reliability, Modeling, and Inference fills a gap in... more...

#### Extreme Value Theory in Engineering

Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95This book is a comprehensive guide to extreme value theory in engineering. Written for the end user with intermediate and advanced statistical knowledge, it covers classical methods as well as recent advances. A collection of 150 examples illustrates the theoretical results and takes the reader from simple applications through complex cases of dependence. more...

#### Modeling, Measuring and Managing Risk

World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 163.00This book is the first in the market to treat single- and multi-period risk measures (risk functionals) in a thorough, comprehensive manner. It combines the treatment of properties of the risk measures with the related aspects of decision making under risk.The book introduces the theory of risk measures in a mathematically sound way. It contains properties,... more...
