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

Springer 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... more...

#### Advances on Models, Characterizations and Applications

Taylor and Francis 2005; US$ 129.95Statistical distributions are one of the most important applied mathematical tools across a wide spectrum of disciplines, including engineering, biological sciences, and health and social sciences. Since they are used to model observed data and ultimately to develop inferential procedures, understanding the properties of statistical distributions is... more...

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

Springer 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...

#### Conditional Measures and Applications

Taylor and Francis 2005; US$ 125.95In response to unanswered difficulties in the generalized case of conditional expectation and to treat the topic in a well-deservedly thorough manner, M.M. Rao gave us the highly successful first edition of Conditional Measures and Applications. Until this groundbreaking work, conditional probability was relegated to scattered journal articles and... more...

#### Continuous Multivariate Distributions

Wiley 2004; US$ 261.00Continuous Multivariate Distributions, Volume 1, Second Edition provides a remarkably comprehensive, self-contained resource for this critical statistical area. It covers all significant advances that have occurred in the field over the past quarter century in the theory, methodology, inferential procedures, computational and simulational aspects,... more...

#### Convergence of Probability Measures

Wiley 2013; US$ 179.00A 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...

#### 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...

#### Dependence Modeling with Copulas

Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 89.95Dependence Modeling with Copulas covers the substantial advances that have taken place in the field during the last 15 years, including vine copula modeling of high-dimensional data. Vine copula models are constructed from a sequence of bivariate copulas. The book develops generalizations of vine copula models, including common and structured factor... more...

#### Discrete Distributions

Wiley 2005; US$ 135.00There have been many advances in the theory and applications of discrete distributions in recent years. They can be applied to a wide range of problems, particularly in the health sciences, although a good understanding of their properties is very important. Discrete Distributions: Applications in the Health Sciences describes a number of new discrete... more...

#### Elements of Distribution Theory

Cambridge University Press 2005; US$ 38.00This introduction to distribution theory uses no measure theory, making it suitable for students in statistics and econometrics and researchers using statistical methods. more...
