Classic Problems of Probability

Bayesian Analysis of Stochastic Process Models

Prakash Gorroochurn

David Insua, Fabrizio Ruggeri, Mike Wiper

978-1-118-06325-5 / 1-118-06325-2 320 pp. Pub: 07/09/12 Applied Probability & Statistics

978-0-470-74453-6 / 0-470-74453-7 320 pp. Pub: 18/05/12 Bayesian Analysis

Providing insight into one of the most fascinating and unique subjects in statistics, this book examines classic problems of probability that have both contributed to the field and have been of historical significance, including Parrondo' Amazing Paradox, Laplace's Rule of Succession, and Jacob Bernoulli and His Golden Theorem.

This unique book explores statistical inference and prediction of stochastic process from a Bayesian perspective. This book provides analysis of stochastic processes from a Bayesian perspective with coverage of the main classes of stochastic processing, including modeling, computational, inference, prediction, decision-making and important applied models based on stochastic processes. In offers an introduction of MCMC and other statistical computing machinery that have pushed forward advances in Bayesian methodology. Addressing the growing interest for Bayesian analysis of more complex models, based on stochastic processes, this book aims to unite scattered information into one comprehensive and reliable volume.

Detailing the history of probability, this book examines the classic problems of probability that have shaped the field and emphasises problems that are counter-intuitive by nature. Classic Problems of Probability is rich in the hostory of probability while keeping the explanations and discussions as accessible as possible. Each of 35 presented problems end with a listing of the latest relevant publications on the topic, and the author provides detailed and rigorous mathematical proofs as needed. For example, in the discussion of the Buffon needle problem, readers will find much more than the conventional discussion found in other books on the topic. The author discusses alternative proofs by Barbier that lead to much more profound and general results. The choice of random variables for which a uniform distribution is possible is also presented, which then naturally leads to a discussion on invariance. Likewise, the discussion of Bertrand's chord paradox involves much more than stating there are three well-known possible solutions to the problems; rather, the athor discusses the implications of the indeterminacy of the problem as well as the contributions made by Poincare and Jaynes. This approach was used for all of the problems in the book. •

Provides a clear and concise mathematical treatment and accurate history of classic problems in probability in chronological order

•

Presents problems that are mostly elementary such as Gerolamo Cardano and Games of Chance, The Chevalier de Mere Problem, and D'Alembert Slips; however, the problems do increase in complexity throughout the book including Of Borel's and Monkeys, Gamow, Stern, and Elevators, and Simpson's Paradox

•

Features detailed history of the subject as well as concise solutions and alternative interpretations

•

Contains all the core topics typically found in an undergraduate course and will be a valuable resource for students and those interested in the history of probability

This book presents an easy-to-read guide to the state-of-the-art techniques that are essential for deconstructing and analysing complex data.

R is one of the most powerful and flexible statistical software packages, and is fast becoming the universal language in which to obtain and present results. This edition provides the definitive practical and up to date guide to understanding and operating this essential software, and is accessible to all readers.

•

This book provides an interactive understanding of the key areas of statistical learning: unsupervised learning, supervised learning, dimension reduction, and kernel methods.

•

Reproducible examples and exercises throughout the book promote the relationship between computing and statistical learning.

•

This is the first book of its kind to utilise examples in MATLAB, featuring an extensive appendix that provides the reader with the necessary MATLAB code for working with the book's examples.

Each chapter contains material that has been extensively classroom tested, ensuring a fluid presentation of both classic and modern methods.

•

The book's algorithms and codes are accessible via the book's related Web site.

The R language is recognised as one of the most powerful and flexible statistical software packages, and it enables the user to apply many statistical techniques that would be impossible without such software to help implement such large data sets. R is becoming essential both to carry out research and to understand it, as more and more people present their results in the context of R. This edition introduces the advantages of the R environment, in a user-friendly format, to beginners and intermediate users in a range of disciplines, from science and engineering to medicine and economics. The format enables it to be either read as a text, or dipped-into as a reference manual. The early chapters assume no background in statistics or computing, and introduce the reader to the basic concepts involved. In this way the reader is introduced to the assumptions that lie behind the tests, fostering a critical approach to statistical modeling. These early chapters have been thoroughly updated to take account of the way language has evolved since the publication of the first edition. Subsequent chapters examine more advanced topics, cementing what is learnt in the opening chapters, as well as benefiting more intermediate readers. Throughout the book, the reader's experience is furthered by practical guidance and the inclusion of numerous worked examples.

This book uniquely focuses on graph mining and classification techniques, and it also introduces novel graph classes appropriate for countless applications across many disciplines.

Presents both basic and advanced topics on SEM models using Mplus.

•

This book provides a general framework for structurally analysing graphs by bringing together known and novel approaches on graph classes and graph measures for graph classification.

•

The proposed methods are applied to different real data sets to demonstrate their ability. By providing different approaches based on experimental data, it will be clear which method is mostly suitable for a given graph classification problem.

•

Each chapter provides the fundamental information needed to understand and apply the presented methods.

•

•

This book is written at both introductory and advanced levels. Both basic concepts and examples of Class Factor Analysis (CFA) and SEM models are explored along with some recently developed advanced methods in SEM, such as mixture modeling and model-based power analysis and sample size estimate for SEM. The author introduces latent class analysis (LCA), latent transitions analysis (LTA), latent growth mixture model (LGMM), and latent class factor analysis (LCFA). In addition, Satorra-Saris's method, Monte Carlo simulation, and MacCallum-Browne-Sugawara's method for power analysis and sample size estimate for SEM are also introduced and the results of the different methods are compared. Mplus has recently gained popularity with the SEM user community and although there are a number of SEM books in-print and in-development there are currently no titles that present SEM with Mplus.

This book explores novel graph classes and their relationships among each other and also presents current and classical methods to classify and analyse networks. In contract to classical mathematical approaches, computational aspects such as machining learning, data mining, and information theory techniques are strongly emphasised throughout the book.

978-0-470-88974-9 / 0-470-88974-8 568 pp. Pub: 15/06/12 Probability & Mathematical Statistics

"... the quality of the proposal serves as a highly convincing evidence of the author's mastery of the subject." Necip Doganaksoy (General Electric Research)

This book is ideal for learning the interrelationships between probability, statistics, and stochastic processes and better prepares readers to collect, analyse, and characterise data in their chosen fields.

In this book, the author explains how the tacit principle of "willful ignorance" has led to a deep and troubling divide between qualitative and quantitative modes of research that will increasingly constrain scientific progress, and can only be bridged by a broadened conception of statistical methodology. •

Praise for the First Edition: "This is an excellent textbook that covers the three subjects of its title at an undergraduate upper level in one single volume...well organised and neatly written..." (Mathematical Reviews)

A clearly written introductory chapter lays out the author’s provocative thesis.

•

Numerous interesting examples, both hypothetical and real, illustrate and support the main premise.

•

A non-technical historical survey of core statistical concepts views current statistical thinking from a unique perspective.

•

Speculations about the possible future evolution of statistics are envisioned.

•

A bold but well reasoned prescription for an expanded research framework grounded in causal (counterfactual) ideas is proposed.

Of particular interest to clinicians (both practicing and in research) who welcome the book's message of observational statistics; for biomedical and social science researchers and students, as well as business leaders and policy-makers; for professionals in statistics and related fields; as supplemental reading in general statistics and data analysis courses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels; for the "intellectually rich" who feel either disenfranchised from or intrigued by the field of statistics

•

Features expanded and revised chapter coverage on simulation, statistical inference, and Bayesian statistics with a focus on applications

•

Includes many new examples and problems, mostly at the elementary level. (The First Edition contained problems that were mostly moderately difficult to quite challenging.)

•

Provides new coverage on analysis of variance (ANOVA), basic asymptotic theory for maximum likelihood estimators, empirical distribution functions, general linear methods, multiple comparisons, Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC), renewal theory, Brownian motion, and martingales, among others

•

Presents the development of the basic concepts and results of probability theory and details statistical inference by including sections on linear regression, Bayesian statistics, and nonparametric methods

•

Uniquely covers probability, statistics, and stochastic processes while other related book either only treat probability theory and statistical inference or probability theory and stochastic processes

•

Extensively classroom tested in courses taught worldwide and reflects new and expanded coverage based on past user feedback

978-0-470-72377-7 / 0-470-72377-7 288 pp. Pub: 10/08/12 Probability & Mathematical Statistics

This book addresses the problem of efficiently collecting information from which to make decisions while maintaining a level of mathematical rigor that is appropriate for professionals and students alike from a variety of backgrounds including operations research, management science, and engineering management.

Extends the classic theory of lower previsions to deal with unbounded quantities, often found in optimisation problems. Currently, the theory of lower previsions deals exclusively with bounded random quantities, making it difficult to apply in many instances. The first book to present an extension to the existing theory of lower previsions, General Theory of Coherent Lower Previsions builds on existing theory, bringing together very powerful theories before developing them further. The author lays the foundations for increased practical work in applying the theory to a growing number of statistics, mathematics, and engineering problems making it suitable for researchers, practitioners, and students in these fields. •

Illustrates ways in which the theory of Lower Previsions can be extended to cover a larger set of random quantities.

•

Highlights a crucial problem in the theory of imprecise probability and provides a detailed theory on how to resolve it.

•

Includes illustrative examples to understanding of the main concepts.

Detailed instructions for use of these packages, as well as for Microsoft Office Excel®, are provided on a specially prepared and maintained author web site. Select software output appears throughout the text. To help readers understand, analyse, and interpret data and make informed decisions in uncertain settings, many of the examples and problems use real-life situations and settings. The book introduces modeling extensions that illustrate more advanced regression techniques, including logistic regression, Poisson regression, discrete choice models, multilevel models, Bayesian modeling, and time series and forecasting. New to this edition are more exercises, simplification of tedious topics (such as checking regression assumptions and model building), elimination of repetition, and inclusion of additional topics (such as variable selection methods, further regression diagnostic tests, and autocorrelation tests). •

A. Steland

The main purpose of this handbook is to illustrate the mathematically fundamental implementation of various volatility models in the banking and financial industries, both at home and abroad, through use of real-world, time-sensitive applications. Conceived and written by over two-dozen experts in the field, the focus is to cohesively demonstrate how "volatile" certain statistical decision-making techniques can be when solving a range of financial problems. By using examples derived from consulting projects, current research and course instruction, each chapter in the book offers a systematic understanding of the recent advances in volatility modeling related to real-world situations. Every effort is made to present a balanced treatment between theory and practice, as well as to showcase how accuracy and efficiency in implementing various methods can be used as indispensable tools in assessing volatility rates. Unique to the book is in-depth coverage of GARCH-family models, contagion, and model comparisons between different volatility models.
