#### 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...

#### Robust Estimation and Hypothesis Testing

New Age International Pvt. Ltd., Publishers 2004; US$ 35.00In statistical theory and practice, a certain distribution is usually assumed and then optimal solutions sought. Since deviations from an assumed distribution are very common, one cannot feel comfortable with assuming a particular distribution and believing it to be exactly correct. That brings the robustness issue in focus. In this book, we have given... more...
