Stochastic Storage Processes: Queues, Insurance Risk, Dams, and Data Communication

It is a revised and extended model of the sooner version. the hot fabric is on Markov-modulated garage approaches bobbing up from queueing and knowledge commu­ nication versions. The research of those versions is predicated at the fluctuation idea of Markov-additive methods and their discrete time analogues, Markov random walks.

Regression and factor analysis applied in econometrics

This e-book bargains with the equipment and useful makes use of of regression and issue research. An exposition is given of standard, generalized, - and three-stage estimates for regression research, the strategy of imperative parts being utilized for issue research. while developing an econometric version, the 2 methods of study supplement one another.

Example text

To encourage students to work more problems, solutions, some in considerable detail, are given for the exercises at the end of each chapter. As it is actually the students who are the real critics of any text, the author is indeed grateful to the many students who have provided helpful suggestions concerning the text and the problems. It is hoped that the layout of the manuscript will make the book more readable. The expert typing and retyping to specification have been provided by Mrs. Eva Loewen.

It is hoped that the layout of the manuscript will make the book more readable. The expert typing and retyping to specification have been provided by Mrs. Eva Loewen. Certainly at the inception of this project, the author never realized the many hours of work that would be needed for its completion. The author wishes to thank her son Narayana for going through the manuscript and providing a better perspective on the problems in the book.

Several new topics have been added and others have been expanded: (i) Multinomial distribution and goodness-of-fit tests based on it (ii) The use of probability models based on discrete distributions in statistical inference (iii) The prob-value as a tool in statistical decision making (iv) Basic properties of continuous distributions with emphasis on the normal distribution (v) The role of the normal distribution in approximating the binomial distribution It is hoped that the ideas and concepts introduced in A Primer in Probability will serve as a motivating force for students to pursue further courses in statistics and probability.
