Statistical Inference in Stochastic Processes

1st Edition

N.U. Prabhu
December 18, 1990

Covering both theory and applications, this collection of eleven contributed papers surveys the role of probabilistic models and statistical techniques in image analysis and processing, develops likelihood methods for inference about parameters that determine the drift and the jump mechanism of a di...

Practical Statistics for Medical Research

1st Edition

Douglas G. Altman
November 22, 1990

Most medical researchers, whether clinical or non-clinical, receive some background in statistics as undergraduates. However, it is most often brief, a long time ago, and largely forgotten by the time it is needed. Furthermore, many introductory texts fall short of adequately explaining the...

U-Statistics: Theory and Practice

1st Edition

June 12, 1990

In 1946 Paul Halmos studied unbiased estimators of minimum variance, and planted the seed from which the subject matter of the present monograph sprang. The author has undertaken to provide experts and advanced students with a review of the present status of the evolved theory of U-statistics, and...

Generalized Additive Models

1st Edition

T.J. Hastie, R.J. Tibshirani
June 01, 1990

This book describes an array of power tools for data analysis that are based on nonparametric regression and smoothing techniques. These methods relax the linear assumption of many standard models and allow analysts to uncover structure in the data that might otherwise have been missed. While...
