Book Description

This book presents the theory of probability and mathematical statistics at a level suitable for researchers at the frontiers of applied disciplines. Examples and exercises make essential concepts in measure theory and analysis accessible to those with preparation limited to vector calculus. Complete, detailed solutions to all the exercises demonstrate techniques of problem solving and provide immediate feedback.

Part I, The Theory of Probability, starts with elementary set theory and proceeds through basic measure and probability, random variables, integration and mathematical expectation. It concludes with an extensive survey of models for distributions of random variables. Part II, The Theory of Statistics, begins with sampling theory and distribution theory for statistics from normal populations, proceeds to asymptotic (large-sample) theory, and on to point and interval estimation and tests of parametric hypotheses. The last three chapters cover tests of nonparametric hypotheses, Bayesian methods, and linear and nonlinear regression.

Researchers and graduate students in applied fields such as actuarial science, biostatistics, economics, finance, mathematical psychology, and systems engineering will find this book to be a valuable learning tool and an essential reference.

About the Author

Thomas Wakefield Epps received the PhD degree in economics from Duke University. Following several years of commissioned military service he joined the faculty of the University of Virginia, where he taught graduate and undergraduate statistics and finance as Professor of Economics and Statistics. His research into the behavior of prices of financial assets led to interests in applied probability modeling and to theoretical contributions in distribution theory, stochastic processes, and tests of goodness of fit. Since retiring from teaching he has authored two graduate-level texts on financial derivatives and quantitative finance. His nonprofessional interests include shooting single-action revolvers and raising Angus cattle on his farm in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
