Most questions in social and biomedical sciences are causal in nature: what would happen to individuals, or to groups, if part of their environment were changed? In this groundbreaking text, two world-renowned experts present statistical methods for studying such questions. This book starts with the notion of potential outcomes, each corresponding to the outcome that would be realized if a subject were exposed to a particular treatment or regime. In this approach, causal effects are comparisons of such potential outcomes. The fundamental problem of causal inference is that we can only observe one of the potential outcomes for a particular subject. The authors discuss how randomized experiments allow us to assess causal effects and then turn to observational studies. They lay out the assumptions needed for causal inference and describe the leading analysis methods, including matching, propensity-score methods, and instrumental variables. Many detailed applications are included, with special focus on practical aspects for the empirical researcher.

Bruno de Finetti (1906–1985) is the founder of the subjective interpretation of probability, together with the British philosopher Frank Plumpton Ramsey. His related notion of “exchangeability” revolutionized the statistical methodology. This book (based on a course held in 1979) explains in a language accessible also to non-mathematicians the fundamental tenets and implications of subjectivism, according to which the probability of any well specified fact F refers to the degree of belief actually held by someone, on the ground of her whole knowledge, on the truth of the assertion that F obtains.

This volume is intended for the advanced study of several topics in mathematical statistics. The first part of the book is devoted to sampling theory (from one-dimensional and multidimensional distributions), asymptotic properties of sampling, parameter estimation, sufficient statistics, and statistical estimates. The second part is devoted to hypothesis testing and includes the discussion of families of statistical hypotheses that can be asymptotically distinguished. In particular,the author describes goodness-of-fit and sequential statistical criteria (Kolmogorov, Pearson, Smirnov, and Wald) and studies their main properties. The book is suitable for graduate students and researchers interested in mathematical statistics. It is useful for independent study or supplementaryreading.

This self-contained, comprehensive book tackles the principal problems and advanced questions of probability theory and random processes in 22 chapters, presented in a logical order but also suitable for dipping into. They include both classical and more recent results, such as large deviations theory, factorization identities, information theory, stochastic recursive sequences. The book is further distinguished by the inclusion of clear and illustrative proofs of the fundamental results that comprise many methodological improvements aimed at simplifying the arguments and making them more transparent. The importance of the Russian school in the development of probability theory has long been recognized. This book is the translation of the fifth edition of the highly successful Russian textbook. This edition includes a number of new sections, such as a new chapter on large deviation theory for random walks, which are of both theoretical and applied interest. The frequent references to Russian literature throughout this work lend a fresh dimension and make it an invaluable source of reference for Western researchers and advanced students in probability related subjects. Probability Theory will be of interest to both advanced undergraduate and graduate students studying probability theory and its applications. It can serve as a basis for several one-semester courses on probability theory and random processes as well as self-study.

Harry Markowitz, 1990 für sein Lebenswerk mit dem Nobelpreis ausgezeichnet, hat mit diesem Buch Standards im modernen Wissenschaftsbetrieb gesetzt. Als "Portfolio Selection" 1959 erstmals in Buchform erschien, revolutionierten diese Ansichten das theoretische und praktische Vorgehen im Finanzbereich. Wissenschaftler, Banker und Privatleute mussten radikal umdenken. Markowitz hatte ein Modell entwickelt, das eine völlig neue Strategie bei der Asset Allocation forderte. Basis seiner Theorie, die bis heute Gültigkeit besitzt, ist das Abwägen zwischen Risiko und Ertrag auf mathematischer Basis. Markowitz bewies, dass ein optimales Portfolio dann zustande kommt, wenn der Investor verschiedene Wertpapiere unterschiedlicher Unternehmen und Staaten in sein Depot legt, anstatt auf einzelne Aktien oder Anleihen zu setzen. Diese Mischung reduziert zwar kurzfristig den Ertrag, langfristig jedoch aucvh das Risiko. Als bedeutende Vertreter der Portfolio-Diversifizierung gelten z.B. Warren Buffett und Peter Lynch.

This monograph presents novel approaches and new results in fundamentals and applications related to rough sets and granular computing. It includes the application of rough sets to real world problems, such as data mining, decision support and sensor fusion. The relationship of rough sets to other important methods of data analysis – Bayes theorem, neurocomputing and pattern recognition is thoroughly examined. Another issue is the rough set based data analysis, including the study of decision making in conflict situations. Recent engineering applications of rough set theory are given, including a processor architecture organization for fast implementation of basic rough set operations and results concerning advanced image processing for unmanned aerial vehicles. New emerging areas of study and applications are presented as well as a wide spectrum of on-going research, which makes the book valuable to all interested in the field of rough set theory and granular computing.

An easy-to-grasp introduction to nonparametric regression This book's straightforward, step-by-step approach provides anexcellent introduction to the field for novices of nonparametricregression. Introduction to Nonparametric Regression clearlyexplains the basic concepts underlying nonparametric regression andfeatures: * Thorough explanations of various techniques, which avoid complexmathematics and excessive abstract theory to help readersintuitively grasp the value of nonparametric regressionmethods * Statistical techniques accompanied by clear numerical examplesthat further assist readers in developing and implementing theirown solutions * Mathematical equations that are accompanied by a clearexplanation of how the equation was derived The first chapter leads with a compelling argument for studyingnonparametric regression and sets the stage for more advanceddiscussions. In addition to covering standard topics, such askernel and spline methods, the book provides in-depth coverage ofthe smoothing of histograms, a topic generally not covered incomparable texts. With a learning-by-doing approach, each topical chapter includesthorough S-Plus? examples that allow readers to duplicate the sameresults described in the chapter. A separate appendix is devoted tothe conversion of S-Plus objects to R objects. In addition, eachchapter ends with a set of problems that test readers' grasp of keyconcepts and techniques and also prepares them for more advancedtopics. This book is recommended as a textbook for undergraduate andgraduate courses in nonparametric regression. Only a basicknowledge of linear algebra and statistics is required. Inaddition, this is an excellent resource for researchers andengineers in such fields as pattern recognition, speechunderstanding, and data mining. Practitioners who rely onnonparametric regression for analyzing data in the physical,biological, and social sciences, as well as in finance andeconomics, will find this an unparalleled resource.
