#### Handbook of Fitting Statistical Distributions with R

CRC Press 2016; US$ 199.95With the development of new fitting methods, their increased use in applications, and improved computer languages, the fitting of statistical distributions to data has come a long way since the introduction of the generalized lambda distribution (GLD) in 1969. Handbook of Fitting Statistical Distributions with R presents the latest and best methods,... more...

#### Multivariate Bonferroni-Type Inequalities

CRC Press 2016; US$ 99.95Multivariate Bonferroni-Type Inequalities: Theory and Applications presents a systematic account of research discoveries on multivariate Bonferroni-type inequalities published in the past decade. The emergence of new bounding approaches pushes the conventional definitions of optimal inequalities and demands new insights into linear and Fréchet optimality.... more...

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

CRC Press 2015; US$ 112.00Student-Friendly Coverage of Probability, Statistical Methods, Simulation, and Modeling Tools Incorporating feedback from instructors and researchers who used the previous edition, Probability and Statistics for Computer Scientists, Second Edition helps students understand general methods of stochastic modeling, simulation, and data analysis;... more...

#### Benford's Law

Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 75.00 US$ 68.25Benford's law states that the leading digits of many data sets are not uniformly distributed from one through nine, but rather exhibit a profound bias. This bias is evident in everything from electricity bills and street addresses to stock prices, population numbers, mortality rates, and the lengths of rivers. Here, Steven Miller brings together many... more...

#### Stable Convergence and Stable Limit Theorems

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 66.99The authors present a concise but complete exposition of the mathematical theory of stable convergence and give various applications in different areas of probability theory and mathematical statistics to illustrate the usefulness of this concept. Stable convergence holds in many limit theorems of probability theory and statistics ? such as the classical... more...

#### Marshall Olkin Distributions - Advances in Theory and Applications

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 97.14This book presents the latest advances in the theory and practice of Marshall-Olkin distributions. These distributions have been increasingly applied in statistical practice in recent years, as they make it possible to describe interesting features of stochastic models like non-exchangeability, tail dependencies and the presence of a singular component.... more...

#### Mathematical Statistics and Limit Theorems

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 83.74This Festschrift in honour of Paul Deheuvels? 65th birthday compiles recent research results in the area between mathematical statistics and probability theory with a special emphasis on limit theorems. The book brings together contributions from invited international experts to provide an up-to-date survey of the field. Written in textbook style,... more...

#### Exponentiated Distributions

Atlantis Press 2015; US$ 66.99This 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...

#### Topics in Statistical Simulation

Springer New York 2014; US$ 111.66The Department of Statistical Sciences of the University of Bologna in collaboration with the Department of Management and Engineering of the University of Padova, the Department of Statistical Modelling of Saint Petersburg State University, and INFORMS Simulation Society sponsored the Seventh Workshop on Simulation. This international conference... more...

#### Financial Engineering with Copulas Explained

Palgrave Macmillan 2014; US$ 40.00This is a succinct guide to the application and modelling of dependence models or copulas in the financial markets. First applied to credit risk modelling, copulas are now widely used across a range of derivatives transactions, asset pricing techniques and risk models and are a core part of the financial engineer's toolkit. more...
