Fitting Statistical Distributions

RRP $357.99

Throughout the physical and social sciences, researchers face the challenge of fitting statistical distributions to their data. Although the study of statistical modelling has made great strides in recent years, the number and variety of distributions to choose from-all with their own formulas, tables, diagrams, and general properties-continue to create problems. For a specific application, which of the dozens of distributions should one use? What if none of them fit well?

Fitting Statistical Distributions helps answer those questions. Focusing on techniques used successfully across many fields, the authors present all of the relevant results related to the Generalized Lambda Distribution (GLD), the Generalized Bootstrap (GB), and Monte Carlo simulation (MC). They provide the tables, algorithms, and computer programs needed for fitting continuous probability distributions to data in a wide variety of circumstances-covering bivariate as well as univariate distributions, and including situations where moments do not exist.

Regardless of your specific field-physical science, social science, or statistics, practitioner or theorist-Fitting Statistical Distributions is required reading. It includes wide-ranging applications illustrating the methods in practice and offers proofs of key results for those involved in theoretical development. Without it, you may be using obsolete methods, wasting time, and risking incorrect results.


A Shock-fitting Primer

A defining feature of nonlinear hyperbolic equations is the occurrence of shock waves. While the popular shock-capturing methods are easy to implement, shock-fitting techniques provide the most accurate results. A Shock-Fitting Primer presents the proper numerical treatment of shock waves and other discontinuities.

The book begins by recounting the events that lead to our understanding of the theory of shock waves and the early developments related to their computation. After presenting the main shock-fitting ideas in the context of a simple scalar equation, the author applies Colombeau's theory of generalized functions to the Euler equations to demonstrate how the theory recovers well-known results and to provide an in-depth understanding of the nature of jump conditions. He then extends the shock-fitting concepts previously discussed to the one-dimensional and quasi-one-dimensional Euler equations as well as two-dimensional flows. The final chapter explores existing and future developments in shock-fitting methods within the framework of unstructured grid methods.

Throughout the text, the techniques developed are illustrated with numerous examples of varying complexity. On the accompanying CD-ROM, MATLAB® codes serve as concrete examples of how to implement the ideas discussed in the book.


Fitting Linear Relationships

RRP $436.99

This book describes the development of statistics, which for more than a century was called "the calculus of observations." The approach will help readers gain a clearer understanding of the historical development as well as the essential nature of some of the commonly used statistical estimation procedures. Detailed descriptions of the fitting of linear relationships by the method of least squares and the closely related least absolute deviations and minimax absolute deviations procedures are presented, along with some of the important work by Laplace, Gauss, and Adrain.
