#### Convergence of Probability Measures

Wiley 2013; US$ 191.00 US$ 171.90A new look at weak-convergence methods in metric spaces-from a master of probability theory In this new edition, Patrick Billingsley updates his classic work Convergence of Probability Measures to reflect developments of the past thirty years. Widely known for his straightforward approach and reader-friendly style, Dr. Billingsley presents a clear,... more...

#### Advances in Distribution Theory, Order Statistics, and Inference

Birkhäuser Boston 2007; US$ 253.84Barry Arnold has made fundamental contributions to many different areas of statistics, including distribution theory, Bayesian inference, multivariate analysis, bounds and orderings, and characterization problems. Organized to honor Arnold’s significant contributions to the field, this volume is an outgrowth of the "International Conference on Distribution... more...

#### Hilbert Functions of Filtered Modules

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2010; US$ 35.42Starting from the pioneering work of D.G. Northcott and J. Sally, this volume presents new developments of Hilbert Functions in one cohesive reference. The text applies the theory to the study of certain graded algebras which are not associated to a filtration. more...

#### The Theory of Distributions

Cambridge University Press 1995; US$ 41.00A self-contained mathematical introduction that concentrates on the essential results important to non-specialists. more...

#### Gaussian Hilbert Spaces

Cambridge University Press 1997; US$ 72.00This book treats the fundamental mathematical properties that hold for a family of Gaussian random variables. more...

#### Uniform Central Limit Theorems

Cambridge University Press 1999; US$ 46.00This treatise by an acknowledged expert includes several topics not found in any previous book. more...

#### Laws of Small Numbers: Extremes and Rare Events

Springer Basel 2010; US$ 62.59The mathematical theory and applications of extremes and rare events have developed much since this book was first published in 1994. This third edition includes details of multivariate generalized Pareto distributions and their testing and estimation. more...

#### A History of the Central Limit Theorem

Springer New York 2010; US$ 165.36This 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...

#### Sorting

Wiley 2011; US$ 211.00 US$ 189.90A cutting-edge look at the emerging distributional theory of sorting Research on distributions associated with sorting algorithms has grown dramatically over the last few decades, spawning many exact and limiting distributions of complexity measures for many sorting algorithms. Yet much of this information has been scattered in disparate and highly... more...

#### A Weak Convergence Approach to the Theory of Large Deviations

Wiley 2011; US$ 223.00 US$ 200.70Applies the well-developed tools of the theory of weak convergence of probability measures to large deviation analysis--a consistent new approach The theory of large deviations, one of the most dynamic topics in probability today, studies rare events in stochastic systems. The nonlinear nature of the theory contributes both to its richness and difficulty.... more...
