## Modern Mathematical Statistics with Applications

**Author**: Jay L. Devore,Kenneth N. Berk**Publisher:**Springer Science & Business Media**ISBN:**146140391X**Category:**Mathematics**Page:**845**View:**8962

Modern Mathematical Statistics with Applications, Second Edition strikes a balance between mathematical foundations and statistical practice. In keeping with the recommendation that every math student should study statistics and probability with an emphasis on data analysis, accomplished authors Jay Devore and Kenneth Berk make statistical concepts and methods clear and relevant through careful explanations and a broad range of applications involving real data. The main focus of the book is on presenting and illustrating methods of inferential statistics that are useful in research. It begins with a chapter on descriptive statistics that immediately exposes the reader to real data. The next six chapters develop the probability material that bridges the gap between descriptive and inferential statistics. Point estimation, inferences based on statistical intervals, and hypothesis testing are then introduced in the next three chapters. The remainder of the book explores the use of this methodology in a variety of more complex settings. This edition includes a plethora of new exercises, a number of which are similar to what would be encountered on the actuarial exams that cover probability and statistics. Representative applications include investigating whether the average tip percentage in a particular restaurant exceeds the standard 15%, considering whether the flavor and aroma of Champagne are affected by bottle temperature or type of pour, modeling the relationship between college graduation rate and average SAT score, and assessing the likelihood of O-ring failure in space shuttle launches as related to launch temperature.

## Mathematical Statistics With Applications

**Author**: Asha Seth Kapadia,Wenyaw Chan,Lemuel A. Moyé**Publisher:**CRC Press**ISBN:**135199204X**Category:**Mathematics**Page:**648**View:**7872

Mathematical statistics typically represents one of the most difficult challenges in statistics, particularly for those with more applied, rather than mathematical, interests and backgrounds. Most textbooks on the subject provide little or no review of the advanced calculus topics upon which much of mathematical statistics relies and furthermore contain material that is wholly theoretical, thus presenting even greater challenges to those interested in applying advanced statistics to a specific area. Mathematical Statistics with Applications presents the background concepts and builds the technical sophistication needed to move on to more advanced studies in multivariate analysis, decision theory, stochastic processes, or computational statistics. Applications embedded within theoretical discussions clearly demonstrate the utility of the theory in a useful and relevant field of application and allow readers to avoid sudden exposure to purely theoretical materials. With its clear explanations and more than usual emphasis on applications and computation, this text reaches out to the many students and professionals more interested in the practical use of statistics to enrich their work in areas such as communications, computer science, economics, astronomy, and public health.

## Wahrscheinlichkeitsrechnung und Statistik

**Author**: Robert Hafner**Publisher:**Springer-Verlag**ISBN:**3709169445**Category:**Mathematics**Page:**512**View:**7066

Das Buch ist eine Einführung in die Wahrscheinlichkeitsrechnung und mathematische Statistik auf mittlerem mathematischen Niveau. Die Pädagogik der Darstellung unterscheidet sich in wesentlichen Teilen – Einführung der Modelle für unabhängige und abhängige Experimente, Darstellung des Suffizienzbegriffes, Ausführung des Zusammenhanges zwischen Testtheorie und Theorie der Bereichschätzung, allgemeine Diskussion der Modellentwicklung – erheblich von der anderer vergleichbarer Lehrbücher. Die Darstellung ist, soweit auf diesem Niveau möglich, mathematisch exakt, verzichtet aber bewußt und ebenfalls im Gegensatz zu vergleichbaren Texten auf die Erörterung von Meßbarkeitsfragen. Der Leser wird dadurch erheblich entlastet, ohne daß wesentliche Substanz verlorengeht. Das Buch will allen, die an der Anwendung der Statistik auf solider Grundlage interessiert sind, eine Einführung bieten, und richtet sich an Studierende und Dozenten aller Studienrichtungen, für die mathematische Statistik ein Werkzeug ist.

## Heimsuchungen

*Zwölf Erzählungen*

**Author**: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie**Publisher:**S. Fischer Verlag**ISBN:**3104017840**Category:**Fiction**Page:**304**View:**1486

Zwölf Stories der jungen nigerianischen Bestsellerautorin Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Nigeria – Nordamerika: Zwei Welten, getrennt durch eine scheinbar unüberwindbare Kluft. Die nigerianische Heimat schwebt zwischen Tradition und Moderne, wird bedroht von Gewalt und Korruption. In Amerika hingegen hält das Leben nicht, was es verspricht. An den Rändern beider Kulturen werden die prekären Bande zwischen Kindern und Eltern, die verborgenen Vibrationen zwischen Männern und Frauen aufgespürt: Die Liebe wird in der Distanz auf die Probe gestellt und das Sich-Wiederfinden ist schwieriger als erwartet. In der Familie schleichen sich Spannungen ein, wenn der Strudel des Lebens ihre Mitglieder mitreißt. Diese sinnlichen und gleichsam klaren Einblicke in die Wirren des nigerianischen, in erster Linie aber des menschlichen Lebens überhaupt, machen diese Geschichten nicht nur zu Erzählungen einer außergewöhnlichen jungen afrikanischen Stimme, sondern zu ganz großer Literatur. »Chimamanda Adichie ist eine neue Autorin, die mit der Gabe der alten Geschichtenerzähler gesegnet ist.« Chinua Achebe

Traditions of the 150-year-old St. Petersburg School of Probability and Statis tics had been developed by many prominent scientists including P. L. Cheby chev, A. M. Lyapunov, A. A. Markov, S. N. Bernstein, and Yu. V. Linnik. In 1948, the Chair of Probability and Statistics was established at the Department of Mathematics and Mechanics of the St. Petersburg State University with Yu. V. Linik being its founder and also the first Chair. Nowadays, alumni of this Chair are spread around Russia, Lithuania, France, Germany, Sweden, China, the United States, and Canada. The fiftieth anniversary of this Chair was celebrated by an International Conference, which was held in St. Petersburg from June 24-28, 1998. More than 125 probabilists and statisticians from 18 countries (Azerbaijan, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Italy, Lithuania, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Russia, Taiwan, Turkey, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, and the United States) participated in this International Conference in order to discuss the current state and perspectives of Probability and Mathematical Statistics. The conference was organized jointly by St. Petersburg State University, St. Petersburg branch of Mathematical Institute, and the Euler Institute, and was partially sponsored by the Russian Foundation of Basic Researches. The main theme of the Conference was chosen in the tradition of the St.
