Distribution (Probability theory)

  • Characteristic Functions, Scattering Functions and Transfer Functionsby Daniel Alpay

    Springer 2010; US$ 189.00

    The notions of transfer function and characteristic functions proved to be fundamental in the last fifty years in operator theory and in system theory. Moshe Livsic played a central role in developing these notions, and the book contains a selection of carefully chosen refereed papers dedicated to his memory. Topics include classical operator theory,... more...

  • An Introduction To Stein's Methodby A. D. Barbour

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 149.00

    A common theme in probability theory is the approximation of complicated probability distributions by simpler ones, the central limit theorem being a classical example. Stein's method is a tool which makes this possible in a wide variety of situations. Traditional approaches, for example using Fourier analysis, become awkward to carry through in situations... more...

  • Stein's Method And Applicationsby A. D. Barbour; Louis Chen

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 163.00

    Stein's startling technique for deriving probability approximations first appeared about 30 years ago. Since then, much has been done to refine and develop the method, but it is still a highly active field of research, with many outstanding problems, both theoretical and in applications. This volume, the proceedings of a workshop held in honour of... more...

  • Convergence of Probability Measuresby Patrick Billingsley

    Wiley 2013; US$ 185.00

    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...

  • A Theory of Distributed Objectsby Luca Cardelli; Denis Caromel; Ludovic Henrio

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2005; US$ 149.00

    Distributed and communicating objects are becoming ubiquitous. In global, Grid and Peer-to-Peer computing environments, extensive use is made of objects interacting through method calls. So far, no general formalism has been proposed for the foundation of such systems. Caromel and Henrio are the first to define a calculus for distributed objects... more...

  • Extreme Value Theory in Engineeringby Enrique Castillo

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 72.95

    This 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...
