Mathematical Statistics with Resampling and R 1st Edition

$50.00 $12.00

This book bridges the latest software applications with the benefits of modern resampling techniques

Resampling helps students understand the meaning of sampling distributions, sampling variability, P-values, hypothesis tests, and confidence intervals. This groundbreaking book shows how to apply modern resampling techniques to mathematical statistics. Extensively class-tested to ensure an accessible presentation, Mathematical Statistics with Resampling and R?utilizes the powerful and flexible computer language R to underscore the significance and benefits of modern resampling techniques.

The book begins by introducing permutation tests and bootstrap methods, motivating classical inference methods. Striking a balance between theory, computing, and applications, the authors explore additional topics such as:

  • Exploratory data analysis
  • Calculation of sampling distributions
  • The Central Limit Theorem
  • Monte Carlo sampling
  • Maximum likelihood estimation and properties of estimators
  • Confidence intervals and hypothesis tests
  • Regression
  • Bayesian methods

Throughout the book, case studies on diverse subjects such as flight delays, birth weights of babies, and telephone company repair times illustrate the relevance of the real-world applications of the discussed material. Key definitions and theorems of important probability distributions are collected at the end of the book, and a related website is also available, featuring additional material including data sets, R scripts, and helpful teaching hints.

Mathematical Statistics?with Resampling?and R?is an excellent book for courses on mathematical statistics at the upper-undergraduate and graduate levels. It also serves as a valuable reference for applied statisticians working in the areas of business, economics, biostatistics, and public health who utilize resampling methods in their everyday work
