#### Theory of Preliminary Test and Stein-Type Estimation with Applications

Wiley 2006; US$ 186.00 US$ 161.20Theory of Preliminary Test and Stein-Type Estimation with Applications provides a com-prehensive account of the theory and methods of estimation in a variety of standard models used in applied statistical inference. It is an in-depth introduction to the estimation theory for graduate students, practitioners, and researchers in various fields, such... more...

#### An Introduction to Bootstrap Methods with Applications to R

Wiley 2014; US$ 118.00 US$ 102.27A comprehensive introduction to bootstrap methods in the R programming environment Bootstrap methods provide a powerful approach to statistical data analysis, as they have more general applications than standard parametric methods. An Introduction to Bootstrap Methods with Applications to R explores the practicality of this approach and successfully... more...

#### Multivariate Density Estimation

Wiley 2015; US$ 115.00 US$ 99.67Clarifies modern data analysis through nonparametric density estimation for a complete working knowledge of the theory and methods Featuring a thoroughly revised presentation, Multivariate Density Estimation: Theory, Practice, and Visualization, Second Edition maintains an intuitive approach to the underlying methodology and supporting theory... more...

#### Quasi-Likelihood And Its Application

Springer New York 2008; US$ 130.64This book is concerned with the general theory of optimal estimation of - rameters in systems subject to random e?ects and with the application of this theory. The focus is on choice of families of estimating functions, rather than the estimators derived therefrom, and on optimization within these families. Only assumptions about means and covariances... more...

#### Estimation in Surveys with Nonresponse

Wiley 2005; US$ 127.00 US$ 110.07Around the world a multitude of surveys are conducted every day, on a variety of subjects, and consequently surveys have become an accepted part of modern life. However, in recent years survey estimates have been increasingly affected by rising trends in nonresponse, with loss of accuracy as an undesirable result. Whilst it is possible to reduce nonresponse... more...

#### Empirical Likelihood

CRC Press 2001; US$ 125.95Empirical likelihood provides inferences whose validity does not depend on specifying a parametric model for the data. Because it uses a likelihood, the method has certain inherent advantages over resampling methods: it uses the data to determine the shape of the confidence regions, and it makes it easy to combined data from multiple sources. It also... more...

#### Introduction to Robust Estimation and Hypothesis Testing

Elsevier Science 2005; US$ 124.95This revised book provides a thorough explanation of the foundation of robust methods, incorporating the latest updates on R and S-Plus, robust ANOVA (Analysis of Variance) and regression. It guides advanced students and other professionals through the basic strategies used for developing practical solutions to problems, and provides a brief background... more...

#### Bootstrap Methods

Wiley 2011; US$ 167.00 US$ 144.73A practical and accessible introduction to the bootstrap method——newly revised and updated Over the past decade, the application of bootstrap methods to new areas of study has expanded, resulting in theoretical and applied advances across various fields. Bootstrap Methods , Second Edition is a highly approachable guide to the multidisciplinary,... more...

#### Restricted Parameter Space Estimation Problems

Springer New York 2006; US$ 127.25This monograph is addressed to anyone interested in the subject of restrict- parameter-space estimation, and in particular to those who want to learn, or bring their knowledge up to date, about (in)admissibility and minimaxity problems for such parameter spaces. The coverage starts in the early 1950s when the subject of inference for - stricted parameter... more...

#### Semiparametric Theory and Missing Data

Springer New York 2007; US$ 152.41This book summarizes current knowledge of the theory of estimation for semiparametric models with missing data, applying modern methods to missing, censored, and coarsened data with the goal of deriving estimators that are as robust and efficient as possible. more...
