Intermediate Probability: a Computational Approach is Ideal for Students of Mathematics, Statistics, Econometrics, Finance, Insurance, and Computer Science, as Well as Researchers and Professional Statisticians Working in These Fields.
DUBLIN, Ireland -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c70875) has announced the addition of "Intermediate Probability: A Computational Approach" to their offering.
Many of the traditional and older advanced texts do not cover the newer topics in probability such as Paretian distribution and noncentral distributions and saddlepoint approximation. The material is only covered in research monographs or in journal articles. This text introduces these topics in the context of real-life examples and making full use of the available computer software.
The contents include a highly accessible introduction to inversion theorems and their numerical implementation, convolution convolution /con·vo·lu·tion/ (-loo´shun) a tortuous irregularity or elevation caused by the infolding of a structure upon itself. of random variables, distribution approximations, and the method of saddlepoint approximation (SPA); plus an overview of order statistics (with an introduction to extreme value theory) and the multivariate normal distribution
In probability theory and statistics, a multivariate normal distribution, also sometimes called a multivariate Gaussian distribution , respectively. Other advanced topics cover the ideas of nesting, generalizing, asymmetric extensions and mixtures; the stable Paretian distribution, with emphasis on its computation, basic properties, and uses; the (generalized) inverse Gaussian and (generalized) hyperbolic distributions, and their connections; and noncentral distributions and quadratic forms.
Intermediate Probability is the natural extension of the author's Fundamental Probability. It details several highly important topics, from standard ones such as order statistics, multivariate normal, and convergence concepts, to more advanced ones which are usually not addressed at this mathematical level, or have never previously appeared in textbook form. The author adopts a computational approach throughout, allowing the reader to directly implement the methods, thus greatly enhancing the learning experience and clearly illustrating the applicability, strengths, and weaknesses of the theory.
* Places great emphasis on the numeric computation of convolutions of random variables, via numeric integration, inversion theorems, fast Fourier transforms See FFT.
(algorithm) Fast Fourier Transform - (FFT) An algorithm for computing the Fourier transform of a set of discrete data values. Given a finite set of data points, for example a periodic sampling taken from a real-world signal, the FFT expresses the data in terms of , saddlepoint approximations, and simulation.
