Ranked Set Sampling

Ranked Set Sampling is one of the new areas of study in this region of the world and is a growing subject of research. Recently, researchers have paid attention to the development of the types of sampling; though it was not welcome in the beginning, it has numerous advantages over the classical sampling techniques. Ranked Set Sampl...

Two Phase Sampling

The development of estimators of population parameters based on two-phase sampling schemes has seen a dramatic increase in the past decade. Various authors have developed estimators of population using either one or two auxiliary variables.The present volume is a comprehensive collection of estimators available in single and two ph...

The Unit Problem and Other Current Topics in Business Survey Methodology

This volume brings together a selection of papers presented at the 2017 European Establishment Statistics Workshop, which have been revised and expanded here. Several contributions will serve to deepen the reader’s understanding of the unit problem in business statistics, while further chapters showcase recent advances in business ...

The Computer Simulation of Monté Carlo Methods and Random Phenomena

This book includes algorithms that illustrate the famous Monté Carlo Methods and the computer simulation of stochastic experiments in the areas of random numbers generation, the simulation of random phenomena, the computation of Pi and e (the base of logarithms), both simple and multiple integration, the computation of areas and vo...

Entropy for Smart Kids and their Curious Parents

This book discusses entropy and the Second Law of Thermodynamics in such a way that everyone can understand its subject matter. Entropy is one of the most interesting concepts in physics. Although it is a well-defined concept, it is still perceived by even well-known scientists as a concept cloaked in mystery. It is also the most m...

Statistical Techniques for Modelling Extreme Value Data and Related Applications

This book tackles some modern trends and methods in the modelling of extreme data. Usually such data arise from random phenomena such as floods, hurricanes, air and water pollutants, extreme claim sizes, life spans, and maximum sizes of ecological populations. It provides the latest statistical methods to model these random phenome...


This book highlights the threefold consilience of sociology, thermodynamics, and the game theory of metaphorical hawks and doves. In a mixed population of social or ethnic groups, segregation into separate colonies is commonly observed in economically hard times. In more affluent times, the groups co-exist in a homogeneous mix.This...

The Analysis of Selected Algorithms for the Stochastic Paradigm

This book analyses selected algorithms for random and stochastic phenomena in the areas of basic probability, random variables, mathematical expectation, special probability and statistical distributions, random processes, and Markov chains. It also presents a novel approach, titled the “Complex Probability Paradigm”, and applies i...

Multivariate Techniques

Multivariate analyses are popular in many areas of life and require special attention. This book covers both theoretical and applied aspects of such analyses. It begins with an overview of multivariate terminology, including joint distributions and some matrix algebra, and provides insight into various popular multivariate distribu...

Reliability of Stochastic Stress-Strength Models

This volume explores the reliability of time-dependent models using a variety of different concepts and techniques it details. It will be useful for research-level courses in statistics, applied mathematics, and operations research. The book will also be of interest to researchers requiring knowledge of applied probability and appl...

Science Meets Sports

This book presents the field of sports statistics to two very distinct target audiences, namely academicians, in order to raise their interest in this growing field, and, on the other hand, sports fans, who, even without advanced mathematical knowledge, will be able to understand the data analysis and gain new insights into their favourite sports. The book thus offers a unique perspective on this attractive topic by combining sports analytics, data visualisation and advanced statistical procedures to extract new findings from sports data such as improved rankings or prediction methods. Bringing together insights from football, tennis, basketball, track and field, and baseball, the book will appeal to aficionados of any sport, and, thanks to its cutting-edge data analysis tools, will provide the reader with completely new insights into their favourite sport in an engaging and user-friendly way.
