Publisher Comments:

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:

  • Shrinkage estimation
  • Empirical and hierarchical Bayes procedures
  • Multistage sampling and accelerated sampling procedures
  • Time-sequential estimation
  • Sequential estimation in finite population sampling
  • Reliability estimation and capture-recapture methodologies leading to sequential tagging schemes

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.
