Discrete distributions by Norman Lloyd Johnson( Book )

103 editions published between 1970 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,719 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Concentrating primarily on areas of interest to theoretical as well as applied statisticians, the authors provide complete coverage of several important discrete multivariate distributions. these include multinomial, binomial, negative binomial, Poisson, power series, hypergeometric, Polya-Eggenberger, Ewens, order s, and some families of distributions." "Discrete Multivariate Distributions begins with a general overview of the multivariate method in which the authors lay the basic theoretical groundwork for the discussions that follow. For clarity and consistency, subsequent chapters follow a similar format, beginning with a concise historical account followed by a discussion of properties and characteristics. Coverage then advances to in-depth explorations of inferential issues and applications, liberally supplemented with helpful details and a collection of real-world applications obtained from the authors' extensive searches of current literature worldwide." "Discrete Multivariate Distributions is an essential working resource for researchers, professionals, practitioners, and graduate students in statistics, mathematics, computer science, engineering, medicine, and the biological sciences."--Jacket
A first course in order statistics by Barry C Arnold( Book )

Written in a simple style that requires no advanced mathematical or statistical background, A First Course in Order Statistics introduces the general theory of order statistics and their applications. The book covers topics such as distribution theory for order statistics from continuous and discrete populations, moment relations, bounds and approximations, order statistics in statistical inference and characterization results, and basic asymptotic theory. There is also a short introduction to record values and related statistics. The authors have updated the text with suggestions for further reading that readers may use for self-study.

Relations, bounds, and approximations for order statistics by Barry C Arnold( Book )

15 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book describes in great length some relations satisfied by moments of order statistics and some methods of deriving bounds and approximations for these moments. The main purpose of the book is to present various old, as well as recent, developments in the above-mentioned three topics in order statistics and also to illustrate some of their uses. Statisticians working in the areas of order statistics, approximation theory, robust inference, goodness-of-fit, outliners, etc., will find this book quite useful. Various new results, particularly involving order statistics from outliner models, have been presented and their uses in robustness studies have been demonstrated. Some inter-relationships between various results are pointed out; some cautionary notes are given regarding their use. These will be of interest to those who are working on theoretical as well as computational, problems in order statistics and related areas. Some generalizations of well-known results are presented and these will be of interest to researchers working in the area of order statistics and also to those who are applying the theory of order statistics to other fields, including quality control, reliability, control theory, etc

Records by Barry C Arnold( Book )

15 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first and only comprehensive guide to modern record theory and its applicationsAlthough it is often thought of as a special topic in order statistics, records form a unique area, independent of the study of sample extremes. Interest in records has increased steadily over the years since Chandler formulated the theory of records in 1952. Numerous applications of them have been developed in such far-flung fields as meteorology, sports analysis, hydrology, and stock market analysis, to name just a few. And the literature on the subject currently comprises papers and journal articles numbering

Chi-squared goodness of fit tests with applications by Vassiliy Voinov( Book )

14 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If the number of sample observations n ! 1, the statistic in (1.1) will follow the chi-squared probability distribution with r-1 degrees of freedom. We know that this remarkable result is true only for a simple null hypothesis when a hypothetical distribution is specified uniquely (i.e., the parameter is considered to be known). Until 1934, Pearson believed that the limiting distribution of the statistic in (1.1) will be the same if the unknown parameters of the null hypothesis are replaced by their estimates based on a sample; see, for example, Baird (1983), Plackett (1983, p. 63), Lindley (1996), Rao (2002), and Stigler (2008, p. 266). In this regard, it is important to reproduce the words of Plackett (1983, p. 69) concerning E. S. Pearson's opinion: "I knew long ago that KP (meaning Karl Pearson) used the 'correct' degrees of freedom for (a) difference between two samples and (b) multiple contingency tables. But he could not see that

Modern mathematical tools and techniques in capturing complexity by Leandro Pardo Llorente( Book )

14 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Real-life problems are often quite complicated and, for centuries, Mathematics has provided the necessary tools and ideas to formulate these problems mathematically and then help in solving them either exactly or approximately. This book aims to gather a collection of papers dealing with several different problems arising from many disciplines and some modern mathematical approaches to handle them. In this respect, the book offers a wide overview on many of the current trends in Mathematics as valuable formal techniques in capturing and exploiting the complexity involved in real-world situations. Several researchers, colleagues, friends and students of Professor María Luisa Menéndez have contributed to this volume to pay tribute to her and to recognize the diverse contributions she had made to the fields of Mathematics and Statistics and to the profession in general. She had a sweet and strong personality, and instilled great values and work ethics in her students through her dedication to teaching and research. Even though the academic community lost her prematurely, she would continue to provide inspiration to many students and researchers worldwide through her published work.¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡

The art of progressive censoring : applications to reliability and quality by N Balakrishnan( Book )

11 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph offers a thorough and updated guide to the theory and methods of progressive censoring, an area that has experienced tremendous growth in recent years. Progressive censoring, originally proposed in the 1950s, is an efficient method of handling samples from industrial experiments involving lifetimes of units that have either failed or censored in a progressive fashion during the life test, with many practical applications to reliability and quality. Key topics and features: Data sets from the literature as well as newly simulated data sets are used to illustrate concepts throughout the text Emphasis on real-life applications to life testing, reliability, and quality control Discussion of parametric and nonparametric inference Coverage of experimental design with optimal progressive censoring The Art of Progressive Censoring is a valuable reference for graduate students, researchers, and practitioners in applied statistics, quality control, life testing, and reliability. With its accessible style and concrete examples, the work may also be used as a textbook in advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate courses on censoring or progressive censoring, as well as a supplementary textbook for a course on ordered data
