The practice of data analysis : essays in honor of John W. Tukey by David R Brillinger( )

14 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and held by 1,062 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in this collection discuss a wide array of recent developments in data analysis. They cover topics from "pure" data analysis, such as gaussianizing transformations and regression estimates, and from "applied" subjects such as estimating the abundance of birds in an area
Von Mises calculus for statistical functionals by Luisa Turrin Fernholz( Book )

15 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

About forty years ago, Richard von Mises proposed a theory for the analysis of the asymptotic behavior of nonlinear statistical functionals based on the differentiability properties of these functionals. His theory was largely neglected until the late 1960's when it experienced a renaissance due to developments in the field of robust statistics. In particular, the "Volterra" derivative used by von Mises evolved into the influence curve, which was used to provide information about the sensi ti vity of an estimator to outliers, as well as the estimator's asymptot ic variance. Moreover, with the "Princeton Robustness Study" (Andrews et al. (1972)), there began a proliferation of new robust statistics, and the formal von Mises calculations provided a convenient heuristic tool for the analysis of the asymptotic distributions of these statistics. In the last few years, these calculations have been put in a more rigorous setting based on the Frechet and Hadamard, or compact, derivatives. The purpose of these notes is to provide von Mises' theory with a rig orous mathematical framework which is sufficiently straightforward so that it can be applied routinely with little more effort than is required for the calculation of the influence curve. The approach presented here is based on the Hadamard derivative and is applicable to diverse forms of sta tistical functionals
Statistics in genetics and in the environmental sciences by Luisa Turrin Fernholz( Book )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book grew out of a workshop on statistics in the sciences held on Monte Verit, Switzerland, in the spring of 1999. It offers a snapshot of the role played by statistics in genetics and in the environmental sciences. A few papers dwell on genetic topics, others deal with risk assessment, in particular involving exposure to chemicals. Pollution is addressed in a survey of problems relating to atmospheric chemistry, and in an article on space debris. The collection finally presents several contributions on modern statistical methods in the sciences. The book will be particularly useful for statisticians who wish to be informed about the use of their methods in the sciences. They will also find a variety of open problems with explanations and solutions. On the other hand, the book does not require a high degree of expertise in statistics and can, on the whole, be read profitably by researchers in genetics and environmetrics
