A history of probability and statistics and their applications before 1750 by Anders Hald( Book )

29 editions published between 1956 and 2005 in English and held by 1,037 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first treatment of the early development of probability and statistics since Todhunter's History appeared in 1865. The present book describes the contemporaneous development and interaction of probability theory (and games of chance), statistics (particularly in astronomy and demography) and life insurance mathematics. Illustrates the development of the practice by means of typical examples, giving both the original data and their analysis at the time, and adding some comments from a modern point of view. To read and enjoy this intellectual history, the reader need know but little statistics or mathematics, for the presentation is relatively self-contained. This unique book evokes the life and works of the great natural philosophers who contributed to the development of probability theory and statistics and offers fascinating background material on the history of mathematics, natural philosophy and social conditions of the eras under discussion

A history of parametric statistical inference from Bernoulli to Fisher, 1713-1935 by Anders Hald( )

24 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 706 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a history of parametric statistical inference, written by Anders Hald. This book can be viewed as a follow-up to his two most recent books, although this current text is much more streamlined and contains new analysis of many ideas and developments. And unlike his other books, which were encyclopedic by nature, this book can be used for a course on the topic, the only prerequisites being a basic course in probability and statistics." "Throughout each of the chapters, the author provides biographical sketches of many of the main characters, including Laplace, Gauss, Edgeworth, Fisher, and Karl Pearson. He also examines the roles played by DeMoivre, James Bernoulli, and Lagrange, and he provides an accessible exposition of the work of R.A. Fisher. This book will be of interest to statisticians, mathematicians, undergraduate and graduate students, and historians of science."--Jacket

Bayesian single sampling attribute plans for discrete prior distributions by Anders Hald( Book )

10 editions published between 1964 and 1965 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The main purpose of the paper was to give a rather complete tabulation and discussion of properties of a system of single sampling attribute plans obtained by minimizing average costs under the assumptions that costs are linear in p, the fraction defective, and that the distribution of lot quality is a double binomial distribution. Starting from a cost function containing 6 parameters and a mixed binomial prior distribution it was shown how the average costs may be written in a standard form containing only two parameters, p sub r and p sub s, besides the parameters defining the prior distribution. The one parameter, p sub r, is the economic break-even quality and depends on the costs of acceptance and rejection only, whereas the second parameter, p sub s also depends on the costs of sampling inspection and the average quality. In a simple and practically important case p sub r and p sub s denote the costs of rejection and the costs of sampling inspection, respectively, divided by the costs of accepting a defective item.

Statistical tables for sampling inspection by attributes by Anders Hald( Book )

9 editions published in 1977 in English and Danish and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book gives some new tables for constructing optimum sampling plans in lot-by-lot sampling inspection by attributes. The tables comprise sampling plans determined from requirements to the operating characteristics, plans minimizing the average total amount of inspection and plans minimizing the average total costs. The tables provide not only the optimum sampling plans but also the means for finding the consequences of using these plans

Single sampling inspection plans with specified acceptance probability and minimum average costs by Anders Hald( Book )

11 editions published between 1963 and 1964 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To design an economical sampling plan it is necessary to know the costs of sampling inspec tion, the costs of wrong decisions, and the quality distribution of lots submitted for inspection, the prior distribution. Sometimes it is impossible to specify the prior distribu tion in detail but a vague knowledge is available which means that not enough is known/for the minimax solution to be satisfactory. The problem then is to choose a third principle leading to a reasonable solution. The principle used in the present paper is to specify the acceptance probability for one quality level and minimize the costs of another quality level. (Author)
