Sequential Estimation (Probability & Mathematical Statistics-Probability & Mathematical...)by Malay Ghosh
Synopses & Reviews
The only comprehensive guide to the theory and practice of one of today's most important probabilistic techniques
The past 15 years have witnessed many significant advances in sequential estimation, especially in the areas of three-stage and nonparametric methodology. Yet, until now, there were no references devoted exclusively to this rapidly growing statistical field.
Sequential Estimation is the first, single-source guide to the theory and practice of both classical and modern sequential estimation techniques—including parametric and nonparametric methods. Researchers in sequential analysis will appreciate the unified, logically integrated treatment of the subject, as well as coverage of important contemporary procedures not covered in more general sequential analysis texts, such as:
An indispensable resource for researchers in sequential analysis, Sequential Estimation is an ideal graduate-level text as well.
Book News Annotation:
A reference for researchers in sequential analysis, but also suitable for an advanced graduate course in special topics, containing considerably more matter than could be covered in one semester. Discussing both parametric and nonparametric methods, explains such techniques as shrinkage estimation, empirical and hierarchical Bayes procedures, multistage sampling and accelerated sampling procedures, and time-sequential estimation.

This book devoted to sequential estimation presents advances of the past fifteen years including those in the areas of three-stage accelerated sequential sampling procedures. It integrates the diversities in sequential estimation in a logical, treating both classical and modern techniques and including parametric and nonparametric methods.<P>Discusses shrinkage estimation, reliability sampling and capture-recapture methodology leading to sequential tagging schemes.<BR>-- Contains detailed appendices and indices.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 445-468) and indexes.
