Density Estimation for Statistics and Data Analysis

26 December 2010

**Density Estimation for Statistics and Data Analysis**

Although there has been a surge of interest in density estimation in recent years, much of the published research has been concerned with purely technical matters with insufficient emphasis given to the technique's practical value. Furthermore, the subject has been rather inaccessible to the general statistician.The account presented in this book places emphasis on topics of methodological importance, in the hope that this will facilitate broader practical application of density estimation and also encourage research into relevant theoretical work. The book also provides an introduction to the subject for those with general interests in statistics. The important role of density estimation as a graphical technique is reflected by the inclusion of more than 50 graphs and figures throughout the text.Several contexts in which density estimation can be used are discussed, including the exploration and presentation of data, nonparametric discriminant analysis, cluster analysis, simulation and the bootstrap, bump hunting, projection pursuit, and the estimation of hazard rates and other quantities that depend on the density. This book includes general survey of methods available for density estimation. The Kernel method, both for univariate and multivariate data, is discussed in detail, with particular emphasis on ways of deciding how much to smooth and on computation aspects. Attention is also given to adaptive methods, which smooth to a greater degree in the tails of the distribution, and to methods based on the idea of penalized likelihood. ...

**The 123s of ABC in SAP: Using SAP R/3 to Support Activity-Based Costing**

408 pages | Aug 31 2010 |ISBN:0471397008 | PDF | 5.5 Mb

Given SAP's dominance in the enterprise resource planning (ERP) market, many companies and their managers encounter SAP AG applications in some form or another. Many of these organizations have recognized the value of utilizing Activity-Based Costing/Management concepts to perform more accurate cost assignments or drive performance initiatives. Managers are then faced with trying to determine how Activity-Based Costing can be incorporated into the SAP environment. The 123s of ABC in SAP is the first book of its kind designed to help business managers understand the capabilities of the SAP R/3 business application to support Activity-Based Costing, Management

R. R. Bahadur's Lectures on the Theory of Estimation

26 January 2011

**R. R. Bahadur's Lectures on the Theory of Estimation**

In the Winter Quarter of the academic year 1984-1985, Raj Bahadur gave a series of lectures on estimation theory at the University of Chicago. The role of statistical theory in Chicago's graduate curriculum has always varied according to faculty interests, but the hard and detailed examination of the classical theory of estimation was in those years Raj's province, to be treated in a special topics course when his time and the students' interests so dictated. Winter 1985 was one of those times. In ten weeks, Raj covered what most mathematical statisticians would agree should be standard topics in a course on parametric estimation: Bayes estimates, unbiased estimation, Fisher information, Cramer-Rao bounds, and the theory of maximum likelihood estimation. As a seasoned teacher, Raj knew that mathematical prerequisites could not be taken entirely for granted, that even students who had fulfilled them would benefit from a refresher, and accordingly he began with a review of the geometry of L function spaces. ...

Applied Parameter Estimation for Chemical Engineers

16 June 2011

**Applied Parameter Estimation for Chemical Engineers**

225 pages | Aug 31 2010 |ISBN: 082479561X| PDF | 15.5 Mb

Provides students and practicing engineers with tools that can be used for the solution of parameter estimation problems. The emphasis is on chemical engineering applications and on systems described by nonlinear algebraic and ordinary differential equations. The Gauss- Newton method is featured, but shortcut methods are also presented. Englezos (University of British Columbia) and Kalogerakis (Technical University of Crete) describe how to formulate and solve parameter estimation problems, compute the statistical properties of the parameters, perform model adequacy tests, and design experiments for parameter estimation or model discrimination. The CD-ROM contains Fortran programs for solving estimation problems.
