Statistical Simulation: Power Method Polynomials and Other Transformations

1st Edition

Todd C. Headrick
June 14, 2017

Although power method polynomials based on the standard normal distributions have been used in many different contexts for the past 30 years, it was not until recently that the probability density function (pdf) and cumulative distribution function (cdf) were derived and made available. Focusing on...

Antedependence Models for Longitudinal Data

1st Edition

Dale L. Zimmerman, Vicente A. Núñez-Antón
June 14, 2017

The First Book Dedicated to This Class of Longitudinal Models Although antedependence models are particularly useful for modeling longitudinal data that exhibit serial correlation, few books adequately cover these models. By gathering results scattered throughout the literature, Antedependence...
