Smoothing techniques : with implementation in S by
Wolfgang Härdle(
Book
)
14 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The author has attempted to present a book that provides a nontechnical introduction into the area of nonparametric density and regression function estimation. The application of these methods is discussed in terms of the S computing environment. Smoothing in high dimensions faces the problem of data sparseness. A principal feature of smoothing, the averaging of data points in a prescribed neighborhood, is not really practicable in dimensions greater than three if we have just one hundred data points. Additive models provide a way out of this dilemma; but, for their interactiveness and recursiveness, they require highly effective algorithms. For this purpose, the method of WARPing (Weighted Averaging using Rounded Points) is described in great detail

Wavelets, approximation, and statistical applications by
Wolfgang Härdle(
Book
)
16 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The mathematical theory of wavelets was developed by Yes Meyer and many collaborators about ten years ago. It was designed for approximation of possibly irregular functions and surfaces and was successfully applied in data compression, turbulence analysis, and image and signal processing. Five years ago wavelet theory progressively appeared to be a powerful framework for nonparametric statistical problems. Efficient computation implementations are beginning to surface in the nineties. This book brings toghether these three streams of wavelet theory and introduces the novice in this field to these aspects. Readers interested in the theory and construction of wavelets will find in a condensed form results that are scattered in the research literature. A practitioner will be able to use wavelets via the available software code

Nonparametric and semiparametric models by
Wolfgang Härdle(
Book
)
12 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The concept of nonparametric smoothing is a central idea in statistics that aims to simultaneously estimate and modes the underlyingstructure. The book considers high dimensional objects, as density functions and regression. The semiparametric modeling technique compromises the two aims, flexibility and simplicity of statistical procedures, by introducing partial parametric components. These components allow to match structural conditions like e.g. linearity in some variables and may be used to model the influence of discrete variables. The aim of this monograph is to present the statistical and mathematical principles of smoothing with a focus on applicable techniques. The necessary mathematical treatment is easily understandable and a wide variety of interactive smoothing examples are given. The book does naturally split into two parts: Nonparametric models (histogram, kernel density estimation, nonparametric regression) and semiparametric models (generalized regression, single index models, generalized partial linear models, additive and generalized additive models). The first part is intended for undergraduate students majoring in mathematics, statistics, econometrics or biometrics whereas the second part is intended to be used by master and PhD students or researchers. The material is easy to accomplish since the ebook character of the text gives a maximum of flexibility in learning (and teaching) intensity

Robust and nonlinear time series analysis : proceedings of a workshop organized by the Sonderforschungsbereich 123 "Stochastische
Mathematische Modelle", Heidelberg 1983 by
Jürgen Franke(
Book
)
18 editions published in 1984 in English and Undetermined and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Classical time series methods are based on the assumption that a particular stochastic process model generates the observed data. The, most commonly used assumption is that the data is a realization of a stationary Gaussian process. However, since the Gaussian assumption is a fairly stringent one, this assumption is frequently replaced by the weaker assumption that the process is wide~sense stationary and that only the mean and covariance sequence is specified. This approach of specifying the probabilistic behavior only up to "second order" has of course been extremely popular from a theoretical point of view be cause it has allowed one to treat a large variety of problems, such as prediction, filtering and smoothing, using the geometry of Hilbert spaces. While the literature abounds with a variety of optimal estimation results based on either the Gaussian assumption or the specification of secondorder properties, time series workers have not always believed in the literal truth of either the Gaussian or secondorder specifica tion. They have nonetheless stressed the importance of such optimali ty results, probably for two main reasons: First, the results come from a rich and very workable theory. Second, the researchers often relied on a vague belief in a kind of continuity principle according to which the results of time series inference would change only a small amount if the actual model deviated only a small amount from the assum ed model

The art of semiparametrics by
Stefan Sperlich(
Book
)
14 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This selection of articles has emerged from different works presented at the conference "The Art of Semiparametrics" celebrated in 2003 in Berlin. The idea was to bring together junior and senior researchers but also practitioners working on semiparametric statistics in rather different fields. The meeting succeeded in welcoming a group that presents a broad range of areas where research on, respectively with, semiparametric methods is going on. It contains mathematical statistics, econometrics, finance, business statistics, etc. and thus combines theoretical contributions with more applied and partly even empirical studies. Although each article represents an original contribution to its own field, they all are written in a selfcontained way to be read also by nonexperts of the particular topic. This volume therefore offers a collection of individual works that together show the actual large spectrum of semiparametric statistics

Anything that is openly traded has a market price that may be more or less than its ""fair"" price. For shares of corporate stock, the fair price is likely to be some complicated function of the intrinsic current value (or ""book"" value) of identifiable assets owned by the company, the expected rate of growth, future dividends, and other factors. Some of these factors that affect the price can be measured at the time of a stock transaction, or at least within a relatively narrow time window that includes the time of the transaction.

Book
)
15 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The complexity of todays statistical data calls for modern mathematical tools. Many fields of science make use of mathematical statistics and require continuous updating on statistical technologies. Practice makes perfect, since mastering the tools makes them applicable. Our book of exercises and solutions offers a wide range of applications and numerical solutions based on R. In modern mathematical statistics, the purpose is to provide statistics students with a number of basic exercises and also an understanding of how the theory can be applied to realworld problems. The application aspect is also quite important, as most previous exercise books are mostly on theoretical derivations. Also we add some problems from topics often encountered in recent research papers. The book was written for statistics students with one or two years of coursework in mathematical statistics and probability, professors who hold courses in mathematical statistics, and researchers in other fields who would like to do some exercises on math statistics

Copulae in mathematical and quantitative finance : proceedings of the workshop Held in Cracow, 1011 July 2012 by
Piotr Jaworski(
Book
)
14 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Copulas are mathematical objects that fully capture the dependence structure among random variables and hence offer great flexibility in building multivariate stochastic models. Since their introduction in the early 1950s, copulas have gained considerable popularity in several fields of applied mathematics, especially finance and insurance. Today, copulas represent a wellrecognized tool for market and credit models, aggregation of risks, and portfolio selection. Historically, the Gaussian copula model has been one of the most common models in credit risk. However, the recent financial crisis has underlined its limitations and drawbacks. In fact, despite their simplicity, Gaussian copula models severely underestimate the risk of the occurrence of joint extreme events. Recent theoretical investigations have put new tools for detecting and estimation dependence and risk (like tail dependence, timevarying models, etc) in the spotlight. All such investigations need to be further developed and promoted, a goal this book pursues. The book includes surveys that provide an uptodate account of essential aspects of copula models in quantitative finance, as well as the extended versions of talks selected from papers presented at the workshop in Cracow"Page 4 of cover
