Theory of rank tests by Jaroslav Hájek( )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and held by 1,616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first edition of Theory of Rank Tests (1967) has been the precursor to a unified and theoretically motivated treatise of the basic theory of tests based on ranks of the sample observations. For more than 25 years, it helped raise a generation of statisticians in cultivating their theoretical research in this fertile area, as well as in using these tools in their application oriented research. The present edition not only aims to revive this classical text by updating the findings but also by incorporating several other important areas which were either not properly developed before 1965 or have gone through an evolutionary development during the past 30 years. This edition therefore aims to fulfill the needs of academic as well as professional statisticians who want to pursue nonparametrics in their academic projects, consultation, and applied research works.

From finite sample to asymptotic methods in statistics by Pranab Kumar Sen( Book )

13 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Exact statistical inference may be employed in diverse fields of science and technology. As problems become more complex and sample sizes become larger, mathematical and computational difficulties can arise that require the use of approximate statistical methods. Such methods are justified by asymptotic arguments but are still based on the concepts and principles that underlie exact statistical inference. With this in perspective, this book presents a broad view of exact statistical inference and the development of asymptotic statistical inference, providing a justification for the use of asymptotic methods for large samples. Methodological results are developed on a concrete and yet rigorous mathematical level and are applied to a variety of problems that include categorical data, regression, and survival analyses. This book is designed as a textbook for advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate students in statistics, biostatistics, or applied statistics but may also be used as a reference for academic researchers"--Provided by publisher
Robust statistical procedures : asymptotics and interrelations by Jana Jurečková( Book )

12 editions published between 1966 and 1996 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pitman's measure of closeness : a comparison of statistical estimators by Jerome P Keating( Book )

15 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written with research oriented statisticians and mathematicians in mind, but also considering the needs of graduate students in statistics courses, this book provides a thorough introduction to the methods and known results associated with PMC. Following a foreword by C.R. Rao, the first three chapters focus on basic concepts, history, controversy, paradoxes and examples associated with the PMC criterion. The material is illustrated through realistic estimation problems and presented with a limited degree of technical difficulty. The last three chapters present a unified development of the extensive theoretical and mathematical research on PMC, albeit in the setup of a single parameter. Taken together, they serve as a single comprehensive source on this important topic. The text is highly referenced, allowing researchers to readily access the original articles. What lies ahead for PMC? This book begins to answer that question by presenting a unified discourse on this alternative criterion to traditional methods of comparison. Find out how the authors have begun to unravel the many attributes of PMC and their connections to other estimation criteria

Methodology in robust and nonparametric statistics by Jana Jurečková( )

12 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Show synopsis Robust and nonparametric statistical methods have their foundation in fields ranging from agricultural science to astronomy, from biomedical sciences to the public health disciplines, and, more recently, in genomics, bioinformatics, and financial statistics. These disciplines are presently nourished by data mining and high-level computer-based algorithms, but to work actively with robust and nonparametric procedures, practitioners need to understand their background. Explaining the underpinnings of robust methods and recent theoretical developments, Methodology in Robust and Nonparametric Statistics provides a profound mathematically rigorous explanation of the methodology of robust and nonparametric statistical procedures. Thoroughly up-to-date, this book Presents multivariate robust and nonparametric estimation with special emphasis on affine-equivariant procedures, followed by hypotheses testing and confidence sets Keeps mathematical abstractions at bay while remaining largely theoretical Provides a pool of basic mathematical tools used throughout the book in derivations of main results The methodology presented, with due emphasis on asymptotics and interrelations, will pave the way for further developments on robust statistical procedures in more complex models. Using examples to illustrate the methods, the text highlights applications in the fields of biomedical science, bioinformatics, finance, and engineering. In addition, the authors provide exercises in the text"--Back cover
