Sequential Stochastic Optimization

Presents a unified mathematical theory of optimal stopping and sequential control of stochastic processes along with several applications including sequential statistical tests involving several populations and multi-armed bandit problems. The material is accompanied by extensive problems, exercises and realistic examples which facilitate understanding. Contains a large amount of original information unavailable elsewhere. Sequential Stochastic Optimization provides mathematicians and applied researchers with a well-developed framework in which stochastic optimization problems can be formulated and solved. Offering much material that is either new or has never before appeared in book form, it lucidly presents a unified theory of optimal stopping and optimal sequential control of stochastic processes. This book has been carefully organized so that little prior knowledge of the subject is assumed; its only prerequisites are a standard graduate course in probability theory and some familiarity with discrete-parameter martingales.

Probability and Statistics

Concepts from the fields of probability and statistics pervade our thinking--even those of us who believe in the existence of luck--and we routinely express ourselves using language borrowed from various branches of mathematics. News reports, weather reports, and even sports reports are some examples of the probabilistic and statistical thinking that seeps into our everyday lives. Probability and Statistics, Revised Edition deals with the history of probability, describing the modern concept of randomness and examining "pre-probabilistic" ideas of what most people today would characterize as randomness. This revised book documents some historically important early uses of probability to illustrate some very important probabilistic questions. It goes on to explore statistics and the generations of mathematicians and non-mathematicians who began to address problems in statistical analysis, including the statistical structure of data sets as well as the theory of sampling and the characterization of the nature of variation. The final chapter describes the role of statistics in the development, testing, licensure, and subsequent study of vaccines. A new chapter has been added that gives special attention to vaccines for measles, polio, pertussis, and rubella.

Elementary Statistics Tables

These tables have been carefully prepared for the many users of statistical analysis at an introductory level. The enthusiastic reception accorded to the author's Statistics Tables (George Allen & Unwin, 1978) by specialist statisticians highlighted the need for a briefer set of tables to be tailored to the requirements of students who have to use statistical analysis but with no greater commitment to it than is represented by a basic and often brief introductory course. Both the coverage and the presentation of this set of tables have been determined with great care. In contrast with competing sets at this level, the content should match closely the requirements of users, who have little mathematical background. The book is a positive teaching and learning aid, not just a stark and impenetrable reference item. Most of the tables are accompanied by fully explanatory introductory text and by some examples of use. Each table has been designed and laid out carefully for maximum clarity and ease of use, features which the large page size should also reinforce. There are many new or improved tables, some being much more extensive than in competing books. In view of the increasing recognition of nonparametric tests for their convenience, ease of use and wide application, the tables covering these tests should provie especially valuable. These tables should serve the needs of all users of elementary techniques of statistical analysis, from engineers and technicians to geographers and social scientists. All students taking first courses in statistical analysis will find them an invaluable aid.

Bayesian Theory and Methods with Applications

Bayesian methods are becoming more and more popular in health sciences, engineering, environmental sciences, business and economics, social sciences, among others. In statistical estimation and analysis of the unknown phenomenon of interest, if we can justify that Bayesian analysis is applicable, we will obtain the best possible estimate of the unknown. This usefulness of Bayesian methods is illustrated with various applications of real world problems.

Statistical Tables Explained and Applied

While preparing this book for publication, we had in mind three objectives: (1) to make available, in a handy format, tables of areas, percentiles and critical values for current applications of inferential statistics; (2) to provide, for each table, clear and sufficient guidelines as to their correct use and interpretation; and (3) to present the mathematical basis for the interested reader, together with the recipes and computational algorithms that were used to produce the tables. As for our first objective, the reader will find several "classical" tables of distributions like those of the normal law, Student's t, Chi-square and F of Fisher-Snedecor.
