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

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 45.68From 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...

#### A History of the Central Limit Theorem

Springer New York 2010; US$ 148.74This 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...

#### Information Theory And The Central Limit Theorem

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 96.00 US$ 87.36This book provides a comprehensive description of a new method of proving the central limit theorem, through the use of apparently unrelated results from information theory. It gives a basic introduction to the concepts of entropy and Fisher information, and collects together standard results concerning their behaviour. It brings together results from... 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...

#### Large Deviations and Idempotent Probability

CRC Press 2001; US$ 159.95In the view of many probabilists, author Anatolii Puhalskii's research results stand among the most significant achievements in the modern theory of large deviations. In fact, his work marked a turning point in the depth of our understanding of the connections between the large deviation principle (LDP) and well-known methods for establishing weak... more...

#### Large Deviations and Metastability

Cambridge University Press 2005; US$ 212.00Covers an area at intersection of probability theory and statistical mechanics. more...

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

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 92.42?Limit 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...

#### Mathematical Statistics and Limit Theorems

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 79.67This 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...

#### 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...

#### 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...
