CRC Press 2015; US$ 104.95Student-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...

#### Stable Convergence and Stable Limit Theorems

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 67.17The 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...

#### Mathematical Statistics and Limit Theorems

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 83.97This 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...

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

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 97.40Limit 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...

#### A Weak Convergence Approach to the Theory of Large Deviations

Wiley 2011; US$ 223.00 US$ 193.27Applies the well-developed tools of the theory of weak convergence of probability measures to large deviation analysis--a consistent new approach The theory of large deviations, one of the most dynamic topics in probability today, studies rare events in stochastic systems. The nonlinear nature of the theory contributes both to its richness and difficulty.... more...

#### Introduction to Statistical Limit Theory

CRC Press 2011; US$ 102.95Helping students develop a good understanding of asymptotic theory, Introduction to Statistical Limit Theory provides a thorough yet accessible treatment of common modes of convergence and their related tools used in statistics. It also discusses how the results can be applied to several common areas in the field. The author explains as much... more...

#### A History of the Central Limit Theorem

Springer New York 2010; US$ 156.75This study discusses the history of the central limit theorem and related probabilistic limit theorems from about 1810 through 1950. Coverage extends to the historical development of analytical probability theory and its tools. more...

#### Rare Event Simulation using Monte Carlo Methods

Wiley 2009; US$ 151.00 US$ 130.87In a probabilistic model, a rare event is an event with a very small probability of occurrence. The forecasting of rare events is a formidable task but is important in many areas. For instance a catastrophic failure in a transport system or in a nuclear power plant, the failure of an information processing system in a bank, or in the communication... more...

#### Self-Normalized Processes

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2008; US$ 75.01This volume covers recent developments in self-normalized processes, including self-normalized large and moderate deviations, and laws of the iterated logarithms for self-normalized martingales. more...

#### Entropy, Large Deviations, and Statistical Mechanics

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 48.14From the reviews: "... Besides the fact that the author's treatment of large deviations is a nice contribution to the literature on the subject, his book has the virue that it provides a beautifully unified and mathematically appealing account of certain aspects of statistical mechanics. ... Furthermore, he does not make the mistake of assuming... more...
