Time series analysis : forecasting and control by
George E. P Box(
Book
)
122 editions published between 1944 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 2,806 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The book is concerned with the building of models for discrete time series and dynamic systems. It describes in detail how such models may be used to obtain optimal forecasts and optimal control action. All the techniques are illustrated with examples using economic and industrial data. In Part 1, models for stationary and nonstationary time series are introduced, and their use in forecasting is discussed and exemplified. Part II is devoted to model building, and procedures for model identification, estimation, and checking which are then applied to the forecasting of seasonal time series. Part III is concerned with the building of transfer function models relating the input and output of a dynamic system computed by noise. In Part IV it is shown how transfer function and time series models may be used to design optimal feedback and feedforward control schemes. Part V contains an outline of computer programs useful in making the needed calculations and also includes charts and tables of value in identifying the models. (Author)

Bayesian inference in statistical analysis by
George E. P Box(
Book
)
44 editions published between 1963 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 993 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The object of this book is to explore the use and relevance of Bayes' theorem to problems such as arise in scientific investigation in which inferences must be made concerning parameter values about which little is known a priori. A number of standard problems concerned with comparison of location and scale parameters are studied from a Bayesian viewpoint. (Author)

Statistical control by monitoring and feedback adjustment by
George E. P Box(
Book
)
26 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Recent research has shown that monitoring techniques alone are inadequate for modern Statistical Process Control (SPC), and there exists a need for these techniques to be augmented by methods that indicate when occasional process adjustment is necessary. Statistical Control by Monitoring and Adjustment, Second Edition presents the relationship among these concepts and elementary ideas from Engineering Process Control (EPC), demonstrating how the powerful synergistic association between SPC and EPC can solve numerous problems that are frequently encountered in process monitoring and adjustment. The book begins with a discussion of SPC as it was originally conceived by Dr. Walter A. Shewhart and Dr. W. Edwards Deming. Subsequent chapters outline the basics of the new integration of SPC and EPC, which is not available in other related books. Thorough coverage of time series analysis for forecasting, process dynamics, and nonstationary models is also provided, and these sections have been carefully written so as to require only an elementary understanding of mathematics. Extensive graphical explanations and computational tables accompany the numerous examples that are provided throughout each chapter, and a helpful selection of problems and solutions further facilitates understanding."Publisher's description

George E. P Box(
Book
)
6 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The chapters of this book are from the recent writings of George E.P. Box, an acknowledged world leader in the application and theory of quality methodology to management, process improvement, process design, and discovery." "Box's ability to explain complex ideas simply and appealingly with wit and cogent illustration is well known. It draws on profound knowledge and extensive industrial experience. In the past, these abilities have led to the creation of such techniques as response surface methods, time series analysis for forecasting and control, evolutionary operation, and applied Bayesian methods."Jacket

Estimating current trend and growth rates in seasonal time series by
George E. P Box(
Book
)
5 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The importance of appropriate stochastic models in choosing efficient methods of statistical analysis is discussed. The fitting to data of Seasonal Autoregressive Moving Average models is described and it is shown how trend may be estimated in an appropriate class of models of this kind. The procedure is illustrated for a model fitted to a money supply series published by the Federal Reserve Board. Error limits are calculated. In a series of appendices the properties of the adaptive coefficients which determine the trend estimates are derived. (Author)
