#### Statistical Decision Theory

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 54.99This monograph presents a radical rethinking of how elementary inferences should be made in statistics, implementing a comprehensive alternative to hypothesis testing in which the control of the probabilities of the errors is replaced by selecting the course of action (one of the available options) associated with the smallest expected loss. Its... more...
