Smooth Tests of Goodness of Fit
ISBN: 9780195056105 / Angielski / Twarda / 176 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 58 dni roboczych. Goodness of fit describes the validity of models involving statistical distributions of data, and smooth tests are a subset of these tests that are easy to apply and can be used in any situation in which there are relatively large sample sizes. Both concepts have become increasingly important with the advent of highspeed computers and the implementation of more complex models in the areas of probability and statistics. Written to be accessible to undergraduates with a knowledge of statistics and calculus, this is an introductory reference work that should appeal to all professionals involved...

Nomic Probability and the Foundations of Induction

In this book Pollock deals with the subject of probabilistic reasoning, making general philosophical sense of objective probabilities and exploring their relationship to the problem of induction. He argues that probability is fundamental not only to physical science, but to induction, epistemology, the philosophy of science and much of the reasoning relevant to artificial intelligence. Pollock's main claim is that the fundamental notion of probability is nomicthat is, it involves the notion of natural law, valid across possible worlds. The various epistemic and statistical conceptions of...

Modeling Extinction

Developed after a meeting at the Santa Fe Institute on extinction modeling, this book comments critically on the various modeling approaches. In the last decade or so, scientists have started to examine a new approach to the patterns of evolution and extinction in the fossil record. This approach may be called "statistical paleontology," since it looks at largescale patterns in the record and attempts to understand and model their average statistical features, rather than their detailed structure. Examples of the patterns these studies examine are the distribution of the sizes of mass...

Likelihood Methods in Statistics
ISBN: 9780198506508 / Angielski / Twarda / 392 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 58 dni roboczych. This book provides an introduction to the modern theory of likelihoodbased statistical inference. This theory is characterized by several important features. One is the recognition that it is desirable to condition on relevant ancillary statistics. Another is that probability approximations are based on saddlepoint and closely related approximations that generally have very high accuracy. A third aspect is that, for models with nuisance parameters, inference is often based on marginal or conditional likelihoods, or approximations to these likelihoods. These methods have been shown often to...
