Police Corruption in the NYPD: From Knapp to Mollen

Steven V. Gilbert, Barbara A. Gilbert

October 15, 2015

Absolute or Crude Risk: Applications in Disease Prevention

Mitchell H. Gail, Ruth Pfeiffer

August 15, 2015

Absolute risk is the probability of developing a specific disease over a specified time interval in the presence of competing causes of mortality. Although absolute risk is arguably more relevant to clinical decision making than "pure" risk, the development of appropriate statistical methods for 

Inferential Models: Reasoning with Uncertainty

Chuanhai Liu, Ryan Martin

July 15, 2015

This book delves into the authors’ work toward deeper understanding of statistical inference in terms of reasoning with uncertainty and meaningfulness of probabilistic inferential output. Focusing on a valid, prior-free probabilistic inferential framework called inferential models, the authors 

Martingale Methods in Statistics

Yoichi Nishiyama

July 15, 2015

This gives a comprehensive introduction to the (standard) statistical analysis based on the theory of martingales and develops entropy methods in order to treat dependent data in the framework of martingales. The author starts a summary of the martingale theory, and then proceeds to give full 

Propensity Score Modeling and Adjustment Procedures

David Stephens

June 26, 2015

This book provides a good balance of propensity score modeling theory (particularly semiparametric methods) and applications through worked examples and software, including R and Stata code. Key topics covered include longitudinal data, survival data, survey sampling, model selection, and Bayesian 

Models for Dependent Time Series

Granville Tunnicliffe-Wilson, Marco Reale, John Haywood

May 15, 2015

Authored by leading researchers in multivariate time series, this book introduces time series models based on lagged regression, particularly vector autoregressive models. It covers recent developments, such as graphical modeling and generalized lag models, and extends them to the important case of 

Bayesian Inference for Partially Identified Models: Exploring the Limits of Limited Data

Paul Gustafson

April 15, 2015

Many observational studies in epidemiology and other disciplines face inherent limitations in study design and data quality, such as selection bias, unobserved variables, and poorly measured variables. Accessible to statisticians and researchers from various disciplines, this book presents an 

Pareto Distributions Second Edition

Barry C. Arnold

March 09, 2015

A considerable number of papers on Pareto distributions and related topics have appeared since the first edition of this hadbook. This book updates the popular first edition by interleafing developments inequality indices, parametric families of Lorenz curves, Pareto processes, hidden truncation, 

Introduction to High-Dimensional Statistics

Christophe Giraud

December 30, 2014

This book provides a straightforward, up-to-date introduction to high-dimensional statistics. It avoids any unnecessary technicalities, instead focusing on the main underlying concepts in simple settings. It gives readers a strong background in high-dimensional statistics by explaining key concepts 

Design and Analysis of Cross-Over Trials, Third Edition

Byron Jones, Michael G. Kenward

October 08, 2014

Design and Analysis of Cross-Over Trials is concerned with a specific kind of comparative trial known as the cross-over trial, in which subjects receive different sequences of treatments. Such trials are widely used in clinical and medical research, and in other diverse areas such as veterinary 

Hierarchical Modeling and Analysis for Spatial Data, Second Edition

Sudipto Banerjee, Bradley P. Carlin, Alan E. Gelfand

September 12, 2014

Keep Up to Date with the Evolving Landscape of Space and Space-Time Data Analysis and Modeling Since the publication of the first edition, the statistical landscape has substantially changed for analyzing space and space-time data. More than twice the size of its predecessor, Hierarchical Modeling 

Robust Cluster Analysis and Variable Selection

Gunter Ritter

September 02, 2014

Clustering remains a vibrant area of research in statistics. Although there are many books on this topic, there are relatively few that are well founded in the theoretical aspects. In Robust Cluster Analysis and Variable Selection, Gunter Ritter presents an overview of the theory and applications
