#### Stochastic Systems In Merging Phase Space

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 109.00 US$ 99.19This book provides recent results on the stochastic approximation of systems by weak convergence techniques. General and particular schemes of proofs for average, diffusion, and Poisson approximations of stochastic systems are presented, allowing one to simplify complex systems and obtain numerically tractable models. The systems discussed in the book... more...

#### Introduction to Empirical Processes and Semiparametric Inference

Springer New York 2007; US$ 156.75The goal of this book is to introduce statisticians, and other researchers with a background in mathematical statistics, to empirical processes and semiparametric inference. These powerful research techniques are surpr- ingly useful for studying large sample properties of statistical estimates from realistically complex models as well as for developing... more...
