Laws of Small Numbers: Extremes and Rare Events

Buy

Since the publication of the first edition of this seminar book in 1994, the theory and applications of extremes and rare events have enjoyed an enormous and still increasing interest. The intention of the book is to give a mathematically oriented development of the theory of rare events underlying various applications. This characteristic of the book was strengthened in the second edition by incorporating various new results. In this third edition, the dramatic change of focus of extreme value theory has been taken into account: from concentrating on maxima of observations it has shifted to large observations, defined as exceedances over high thresholds. One emphasis of the present third edition lies on multivariate generalized Pareto distributions, their representations, properties such as their peaks-over-threshold stability, simulation, testing and estimation. Reviews of the 2nd edition: "In brief, it is clear that this will surely be a valuable resource for anyone involved in, or seeking to master, the more mathematical features of this field" David Stirzaker, Bulletin of the London Mathematical Society "Laws of Small Numbers can be highly recommended to everyone who is looking for a smooth introduction to Poisson approximations in EVT and other fields of probability theory and statistics. In particular, it offers an interesting view on multivariate EVT and on EVT for non-iid observations, which is not presented in a similar way in any other textbook" Holger Drees, Metrika

Operating System Concepts
Operating System Concepts
Operating systems are large and complex, and yet must function with near-absolute reliability--that's why they're a class unto themselves in the field of software development. Since its first release 20 years ago, "the dinosaur book"--Operating System Concepts by Abraham Silberschatz, Peter Baer Galvin, and Greg Gagne--has...

Sampling Algorithms (Springer Series in Statistics)
This book is based upon courses on sampling algorithms. After having used scattered notes for several years, I have decided to completely rewrite the material in a consistent way. The books of Brewer and Hanif (1983) and H´ajek (1981) have been my works of reference. Brewer and Hanif (1983) have drawn up an...

Molecular Diagnosis of Cancer: Methods and Protocols (Methods in Molecular Medicine)
Molecular Diagnosis of Cancer: Methods and Protocols (Methods in Molecular Medicine)

We are currently experiencing a fundamental shift in the way in which we approach the characterization of cancer. Never before has the make up of cancer tissues and individual cells been so exhaustively researched and char- terized. We are now capable of producing molecular “fingerprints” that ch- acterize the expression of all...

Awareness Systems: Advances in Theory, Methodology and Design (Human-Computer Interaction Series)
Awareness Systems: Advances in Theory, Methodology and Design (Human-Computer Interaction Series)

People go about their daily tasks with an in-built awareness of their social and physical environments. This awareness helps them to work cooperatively in groups, coordinate actions, and to maintain and enhance social communication with others. Networked technology has extended the reach of people's awareness to remote and distributed groups and...
