The revision of this well-respected text presents a balanced approach of the classical and Bayesian methods and now includes a new chapter on simulation (including Markov chain Monte Carlo and the Bootstrap), expanded coverage of residual analysis in linear models, and more examples using real data. Probability & Statistics was written for a one or two semester probability and statistics course offered primarily at four-year institutions and taken mostly by sophomore and junior level students, majoring in mathematics or statistics. Calculus is a prerequisite, and a familiarity with the concepts and elementary properties of vectors and matrices is a plus. Introduction to Probability; Conditional Probability; Random Variables and Distribution; Expectation; Special Distributions; Estimation; Sampling Distributions of Estimators; Testing Hypotheses; Categorical Data and Nonparametric Methods; Linear Statistical Models; Simulation For all readers interested in probability and statistics.
This manual contains completely worked-out solutions for all the odd-numbered exercises in the text.
Describes a wide variety of applications of statistical concepts in legal settings, as well as cases in which statistical analyses were important elements. Several chapters are devoted to employment discrimination and antitrust violation, two areas of litigation that rely heavily on statistics. Contributors discuss the correct choice and use of statistical techniques in the assessment of damages, the measurement and quantification of skill (in a case deciding whether video poker games require skill), the determination of disputed paternity and elections, and other areas where statistics are used in legal cases. Many of the chapters are written by the statisticians who actually participated in the cases under discussion.
A comprehensive guide to the statistical methods used in economics and quantitative economics. Acknowledged experts cover topics such as: * Semiparametic and non-parametic interference * Time series behaviour of commodity prices * Applications of Edgeworth expansions and quantitative methods in development economics.
Providing a comprehensive overview of recent research in Bayesian Statistics, this book includes contributions from most of the leading experts in the field. It covers a broad range of topics, from foundational philosophy to practical case studies.
