#### Statistical Analysis of Spherical Data

Cambridge University Press 1993; US$ 86.00This is the first comprehensive, yet clearly presented, account of statistical methods for analysing spherical data. The analysis of data, in the form of directions in space or of positions of points on a spherical surface, is required in many contexts in the earth sciences, astrophysics and other fields, yet the methodology required is disseminated... more...

#### Robust Statistics

Wiley 2005; US$ 208.00 US$ 187.20The first systematic, book-length treatment of the subject. Begins with a general introduction and the formal mathematical background behind qualitative and quantitative robustness. Stresses concepts. Provides selected numerical algorithms for computing robust estimates, as well as convergence proofs. Tables contain quantitative robustness information... more...

#### Asymptotic Theory of Quantum Statistical Inference

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 156.00 US$ 141.96Quantum statistical inference, a research field with deep roots in the foundations of both quantum physics and mathematical statistics, has made remarkable progress since 1990. In particular, its asymptotic theory has been developed during this period. However, there has hitherto been no book covering this remarkable progress after 1990; the famous... more...

#### Theory of Preliminary Test and Stein-Type Estimation with Applications

Wiley 2006; US$ 186.00 US$ 167.40Theory of Preliminary Test and Stein-Type Estimation with Applications provides a com-prehensive account of the theory and methods of estimation in a variety of standard models used in applied statistical inference. It is an in-depth introduction to the estimation theory for graduate students, practitioners, and researchers in various fields, such... more...

#### Common Errors in Statistics (and How to Avoid Them)

Wiley 2006; US$ 84.95 US$ 76.45Praise for the First Edition of Common Errors in Statistics " . . . let me recommend Common Errors to all those who interact with statistics, whatever their level of statistical understanding . . . " --Stats 40 " . . . written . . . for the people who define good practice rather than seek to emulate it." --Journal of Biopharmaceutical Statistics... more...

#### Robust Statistical Methods with R

CRC Press 2005; US$ 125.95Robust statistical methods were developed to supplement the classical procedures when the data violate classical assumptions. They are ideally suited to applied research across a broad spectrum of study, yet most books on the subject are narrowly focused, overly theoretical, or simply outdated. Robust Statistical Methods with R provides a systematic... more...

#### Subjective Probability Models for Lifetimes

CRC Press 2001; US$ 139.95Bayesian methods in reliability cannot be fully utilized and understood without full comprehension of the essential differences that exist between frequentist probability and subjective probability. Switching from the frequentist to the subjective approach requires that some fundamental concepts be rethought and suitably redefined. Subjective Probability... more...

#### Advances In Statistical Modeling And Inference

World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 241.00 US$ 219.31There have been major developments in the field of statistics over the last quarter century, spurred by the rapid advances in computing and data-measurement technologies. These developments have revolutionized the field and have greatly influenced research directions in theory and methodology. Increased computing power has spawned entirely new areas... more...
