#### 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...

#### Systems of Frequency Curves

Cambridge University Press 2009; US$ 46.00It should be of especial value as a quick reference book for formulae and methods used in fitting frequency curves. more...

#### Probability: A Graduate Course

Springer New York 2006; US$ 89.82This textbook on the theory of probability is aimed at graduate students. It starts with the basic tools, and goes on to cover a number of subjects in detail, including the three central planks of probability theory. more...

#### Probability and Random Processes

Wiley 2006; US$ 182.00 US$ 163.80A resource for probability AND random processes, with hundreds of worked examples and probability and Fourier transform tables This survival guide in probability and random processes eliminates the need to pore through several resources to find a certain formula or table. It offers a compendium of most distribution functions used by communication... more...

#### Uncertain Judgements

Wiley 2006; US$ 88.00 US$ 79.20Elicitation is the process of extracting expert knowledge about some unknown quantity or quantities, and formulating that information as a probability distribution. Elicitation is important in situations, such as modelling the safety of nuclear installations or assessing the risk of terrorist attacks, where expert knowledge is essentially the only... more...

#### Probabilities

Wiley 2013; US$ 44.95 US$ 40.45What are the chances? Find out in this entertaining exploration ofprobabilities in our everyday lives “If there is anything you want to know, or remind yourself, about probabilities, then look no further than this comprehensive, yet wittily written and enjoyable, compendium of how to apply probability calculations in real-world situations.”... more...

#### Probabilistic Symmetries and Invariance Principles

Springer New York 2006; US$ 176.35This book is about random objects—sequences, processes, arrays, measures, functionals—with interesting symmetry properties. Here symmetry should beunderstoodinthebroadsenseofinvarianceunderafamily(notnecessarily a group) of measurable transformations. To be precise, it is not the random objects themselves but rather their distributions that are assumed... more...

#### Basic Principles and Applications of Probability Theory

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2005; US$ 141.08Probability theory arose originally in connection with games of chance and then for a long time it was used primarily to investigate the credibility of testimony of witnesses in the “ethical” sciences. Nevertheless, probability has become a very powerful mathematical tool in understanding those aspects of the world that cannot be described by deterministic... more...

#### Elementi di Probabilità e Statistica

Springer Milan 2006; US$ 19.75Il volume si rivolge agi studenti dei corsi di laurea delle Facoltà di Matematica, Ingegneria e Informatica. Introduce concetti fondamentali circa la teoria della probabilità e statistica matematica. L'approccio mira a semplificare il formalismo per accedere rapidamente ai concetti di base, prendendo anche in considerazione il metodo Bayesiano. La... more...
