Handbook of computational statistics concepts and methods by James E Gentle ( )
16 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Handbook of Computational Statistics - Concepts and Methods (second edition) is a revision of the first edition published in 2004, and contains additional comments and updated information on the existing chapters, as well as three new chapters addressing recent work in the field of computational statistics. This new edition is divided into 4 parts in the same way as the first edition. It begins with 'How Computational Statistics became the backbone of modern data science' (Ch.1): an overview of the field of Computational Statistics, how it emerged as a separate discipline, and how its own development mirrored that of hardware and software, including a discussion of current active research. The second part (Chs. 2 - 15) presents several topics in the supporting field of statistical computing. Emphasis is placed on the need for fast and accurate numerical algorithms, and some of the basic methodologies for transformation, database handling, high-dimensional data and graphics treatment are discussed. The third part (Chs. 16 - 33) focuses on statistical methodology. Special attention is given to smoothing, iterative procedures, simulation and visualization of multivariate data. Lastly, a set of selected applications (Chs. 34 - 38) like Bioinformatics, Medical Imaging, Finance, Econometrics and Network Intrusion Detection highlight the usefulness of computational statistics in real-world applications

Handbook of computational finance by Jin-Chuan Duan ( )
12 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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. Most factors, however, relate to expectations about the future a
Wavelets, approximation, and statistical applications ( Book )
11 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 320 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
Smoothing techniques : with implementation in S by Wolfgang Härdle ( Book )
15 editions published between 1990 and 2012 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The author has attempted to present a book that provides a non-technical introduction into the area of non-parametric 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
Robust and nonlinear time series analysis : proceedings of a workshop organized by the Sonderforschungsbereich 123 "Stochastische Mathematische Modelle", Heidelberg 1983 by Jürgen Franke ( Book )
13 editions published in 1984 in English and Undetermined and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Nonparametric and semiparametric models by Wolfgang Härdle ( Book )
11 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 273 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 e-book character of the text gives a maximum of flexibility in learning (and teaching) intensity
Copulae in mathematical and quantitative finance proceedings of the Workshop Held in Cracow, 10-11 July 2012 by Piotr Jaworski ( )
8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 271 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 well-recognized 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, time-varying 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 up-to-date 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"--P.

Partially linear models by Wolfgang Härdle ( Book )
10 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the last ten years, there has been increasing interest and activity in the general area of partially linear regression smoothing in statistics. Many methods and techniques have been proposed and studied. This monograph hopes to bring an up-to-date presentation of the state of the art of partially linear regression techniques. The emphasis is on methodologies rather than on the theory, with a particular focus on applications of partially linear regression techniques to various statistical problems. These problems include least squares regression, asymptotically efficient estimation, bootstrap resampling, censored data analysis, linear measurement error models, nonlinear measurement models, nonlinear and nonparametric time series models

XploRe : an interactive statistical computing environment by Wolfgang Härdle ( Book )
10 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book describes the statistical computing environment called XploRe which is a widely available package (details on how to obtain it are provided in the book). As its name suggests, XploRe provides a highly interactive graphics interface for exploratory statistical analysis and provides for user-written macros and smoothing procedures for effective high-dimensional data analysis. The main aim of the book is to show how XploRe can be used for a wide variety of statistical tasks ranging from basic data manipulation to interactive customizing of graphs and dynamic fitting of high-dimensional statistical models. As a result, it may be used as the basis of a course in model building, computational statistics, applied multivariate analysis, and econometrics
