#### Limit Theorems in Probability, Statistics and Number Theory

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 139.00?Limit theorems and asymptotic results form a central topic in probability theory and mathematical statistics. New and non-classical limit theorems have been discovered for processes in random environments, especially in connection with random matrix theory and free probability. These questions and the techniques for answering them combine asymptotic... more...

#### Stochastic Orders in Reliability and Risk

Springer New York 2013; US$ 129.00Presenting research reported at SORR2011 in Xiamen, China in 2011, this book offers 19 contributions on the theory of stochastic orders, stochastic comparison of order statistics, stochastic orders in reliability and risk analysis and applications. 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...

#### Characteristic Functions, Scattering Functions and Transfer Functions

Birkhäuser Basel 2010; US$ 189.00The 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...

#### Advances in Distribution Theory, Order Statistics, and Inference

Birkhäuser Boston 2007; US$ 319.00Barry Arnold has made fundamental contributions to many different areas of statistics, including distribution theory, Bayesian inference, multivariate analysis, bounds and orderings, and characterization problems. Organized to honor Arnold?s significant contributions to the field, this volume is an outgrowth of the "International Conference on Distribution... more...

Wiley 2004; US$ 167.00N. BALAKRISHNAN, PhD, is Professor of Mathematics and Statistics at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. V. B. NEVZOROV, PhD, DS, is Professor of Probability and Statistics at St. Petersburg State University in St. Petersburg, Russia. more...

#### An Introduction To Stein's Method

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 149.00A 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 Applications

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 163.00Stein'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...

#### Probability and Statistics for Computer Scientists, Second Edition

CRC Press 2013; US$ 99.95"? an immensely readable text intended for junior undergraduate to beginning graduate students in computer-related fields, though it could be suitable for any calculus-based probability and/or mathematical statistics course. ? the book is well written, and very well suited to the target audience?individuals in computer-related fields. Through examples... more...
