Discrete multivariate distributions by Samuel Kotz( Book )

13 editions published between 1996 and 2004 in English and held by 529 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

Continuous bivariate distributions by N Balakrishnan( Book )

26 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Random variables are rarely independent in practice and so many multivariate distributions have been proposed in the literature to give a dependence structure for two or more variables. In this book, we restrict ourselves to the bivariate distributions for two reasons: (i) correlation structure and other properties are easier to understand and the joint density plot can be displayed more easily, and (ii) a bivariate distribution can normally be extended to a multivariate one through a vector or matrix representation. This volume is a revision of Chapters 1-17 of the previous book Continous Bivariate Distributions, Empasising Applications authored by Drs. Paul Hutchinson and Chin-Diew Lai. The book updates the subject of copulas which have grown immensely during the past two decades. Similarly, conditionally specified distributions and skewed distributions have become important topics of discussion in this area of research. The volume, which provides an up-to-date review of various developments relating to bivariate distributions in general, should be of interest to academics and graduate students, as well as applied researchers in finance, economics, science, engineering and technology"--Back cover
Chi-squared goodness of fit tests with applications by Vassiliy Voinov( Book )

14 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 133 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 2 in curve fitting should be got asymptotically into the same category." Plackett explained that this crucial mistake of Pearson arose from to Karl Pearson's assumption "that individual normality implies joint normality." Stigler (2008) noted that this error of Pearson "has left a positive and lasting negative impression upon the statistical world." Fisher (1924) clearly showed 1 2 CHAPTER 1. A HISTORICAL ACCOUNT that the number of degrees of freedom of Pearson's test must be reduced by the number of parameters estimated from the sample"--

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 48 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 )

15 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 25 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
