#### 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

CRC Press 2005; US$ 132.95Preface Contributors The Shapes of the Probability Density, Hazard, and Reverse Hazard Functions Masaaki Sibuya Stochastic Ordering of Risks, Influence of Dependence, and A.S. Constructions Ludger Rüschendorf The q-Factorial Moments of Discrete q-Distributions and a Characterization of the Euler Distribution Ch.A. Charalambides and N. Papadatos ... more...

#### Benford's Law

Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 75.00Benford?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...

#### 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...

#### Continuous Multivariate Distributions

Wiley 2004; US$ 269.00Continuous 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$ 185.00A 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

CRC Press 2014; US$ 89.95Introduction Dependence modeling Early research for multivariate non-Gaussian Copula representation for a multivariate distribution Data examples: scatterplots and semi-correlations Likelihood analysis and model comparisons Copula models versus alternative multivariate models Terminology for multivariate distributions with U(0 , 1) margins... more...

#### Discrete Distributions

Wiley 2005; US$ 140.00There 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...
