The theory of probability by B. V Gnedenko( Book )

176 editions published between 1900 and 2020 in 4 languages and held by 1,571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the sixth edition of a classic text that was first published in 1950 in the former Soviet Union. The clear presentation of the subject and extensive applications supported with real data helped establish the book as a standard for the field. To date, it has been published into more that ten languages and has gone through five editions. The sixth edition is a major revision over the fifth. It contains new material and results on the Local Limit Theorem, the Integral Law of Large Numbers, and Characteristic Functions. The new edition retains the feature of developing the subject from intuitive concepts and demonstrating techniques and theory through large numbers of examples. The author has, for the first time, included a brief history of probability and its development. Exercise problems and examples have been revised and new ones added.--
An elementary introduction to the theory of probability by B. V Gnedenko( Book )

59 editions published between 1946 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 1,165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This compact volume equips the reader with all the facts and principles essential to a fundamental understanding of the theory of probability. It is an introduction, no more: throughout the book the authors discuss the theory of probability for situations having only a finite number of possibilities, and the mathematics employed is held to the elementary level. But within its purposely restricted range it is extremely thorough, well organized, and absolutely authoritative. It is the only English translation of the latest revised Russian edition; and it is the only current translation on the market that has been checked and approved by Gnedenko himself. After explaining in simple terms the meaning of the concept of probability and the means by which an event is declared to be in practice, impossible, the authors take up the processes involved in the calculation of probabilities. They survey the rules for addition and multiplication of probabilities, the concept of conditional probability, the formula for total probability, Bayes's formula, Bernoulli's scheme and theorem, the concepts of random variables, insufficiency of the mean value for the characterization of a random variable, methods of measuring the variance of a random variable, theorems on the standard deviation, the Chebyshev inequality, normal laws of distribution, distribution curves, properties of normal distribution curves, and related topics. The book is unique in that, while there are several high school and college textbooks available on this subject, there is no other popular treatment for the layman that contains quite the same material presented with the same degree of clarity and authenticity. Anyone who desires a fundamental grasp of this increasingly important subject cannot do better than to start with this book. New preface for Dover edition by B.V. Gnedenko.--

Applied reliability engineering and risk analysis : probabilistic models and statistical inference by Ilia Frenkel( )

5 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 776 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book presents the latest developments in the field of reliability science focusing on applied reliability, probabilistic models and risk analysis. It provides readers with the most up-to-date developments in this field and consolidates research activities in several areas of applied reliability engineering. The publication is timed to commemorate Boris Gnedenko's centennial by bringing together leading researchers, scientists, and practitioners in the field of Prof. Gnednko's expertise. The Introduction, written by Prof. Igor Ushakov, a personal friend and a colleague of Boris Gnedenko, explains the significant impact and contribution Gnedenko's work made on the reliability theory and the modern reliability practice. The book covers conventional and contemporary (recently emerged) topics in reliability science, which have seen extended research activities in the recent years. These topics include: degradation analysis and multi-state system reliability; networks and large scale systems; maintenance models; statistical inference in reliability, and; physics of failures and reliability demonstration. All of these topics present a great interest to researchers and practitioners, having been extensively researched in the past years and covered at a large number of international conferences and in a multitude of journal articles. This book pulls together this information with a coherent flow of chapters, and is written by the lead scientists, researchers and practitioners in their respective fields. Logically divided into five sections, each contains several chapters covering theoretical and practical issues, while case studies support the topics under discussion."

Probabilistic reliability engineering by B. V Gnedenko( )

11 editions published between 1995 and 2007 in English and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With the growing complexity of engineered systems, reliability has increased in importance throughout the twentieth century. Initially developed to meet practical needs, reliability theory has become an applied mathematical discipline that permits a priori evaluations of various reliability indices at the design stages. These evaluations help engineers choose an optimal system structure, improve methods of maintenance, and estimate the reliability on the basis of special testing. Probabilistic Reliability Engineering focuses on the creation of mathematical models for solving problems of system design." "To provide readers with all necessary background material, this text incorporates a thorough review of the fundamentals of probability theory and the theory of stochastic processes. It offers clear and detailed treatment of reliability indices, the structure function, load-strength reliability models, distributions with monotone intensity functions, repairable systems, the Markov models, analysis of performance effectiveness, two-pole networks, optimal redundancy, optimal technical diagnosis, and heuristic methods in reliability. Throughout the text, an abundance of real world examples and case studies illustrate and illuminate the theoretical points under consideration."--BOOK JACKET
Statistical reliability engineering by B. V Gnedenko( )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While probabilistic methods of system reliability analysis have reached an unparalleled degree of refinement, Russian engineers have concentrated on developing more advanced statistical methods. Over the past several decades, their efforts have yielded highly evolved statistical models that have proven to be especially valuable in the estimation of reliability based upon tests of individual units of systems. Now Statistical Reliability Engineering affords engineers a unique opportunity to learn both the theory behind and applications of those statistical methods
Random summation : limit theorems and applications by B. V Gnedenko( Book )

14 editions published between 1996 and 2020 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides an introduction to the asymptotic theory of random summation, combining a strict exposition of the foundations of this theory and recent results. It also includes a description of its applications to solving practical problems in hardware and software reliability, insurance, finance, and more. The authors show how practice interacts with theory, and how new mathematical formulations of problems appear and develop.Attention is mainly focused on transfer theorems, description of the classes of limit laws, and criteria for convergence of distributions of sums for a random number of random variables. Theoretical background is given for the choice of approximations for the distribution of stock prices or surplus processes. General mathematical theory of reliability growth of modified systems, including software, is presented. Special sections deal with doubling with repair, rarefaction of renewal processes, limit theorems for supercritical Galton-Watson processes, information properties of probability distributions, and asymptotic behavior of doubly stochastic Poisson processes.Random Summation: Limit Theorems and Applications will be of use to specialists and students in probability theory, mathematical statistics, and stochastic processes, as well as to financial mathematicians, actuaries, and to engineers desiring to improve probability models for solving practical problems and for finding new approaches to the construction of mathematical models
