Group Representations in Probability and Statistics by Persi Diaconis

By Persi Diaconis

This monograph is an elevated model of lecture notes i've got used during the last 8 years.. I first taught this topic at Harvard's division of facts 1981-82 while a model of those notes have been issued. i have therefore taught the topic at Stanford in 1983 and 1986. i have additionally introduced lecture sequence in this fabric at Ohio nation and at St.. Flour.. which means i have had the advantage of dozens of critics and proofreaders the graduate scholars and college who sat in. Jim Fill, Arunas Rudvalis and Hansmartin Zeuner have been quite invaluable. 4 scholars went directly to write theses within the topic - Douglas Critchlow, Peter Matthews, Andy Greenhalgh and Dan Rockmore. Their rules have definitely enriched the current model.

Markov Chains: Models, Algorithms and Applications by Wai-Ki Ching, Ximin Huang, Michael K. Ng, Tak-Kuen Siu

By Wai-Ki Ching, Ximin Huang, Michael K. Ng, Tak-Kuen Siu

This new version of Markov Chains: types, Algorithms and functions has been thoroughly reformatted as a textual content, entire with end-of-chapter workouts, a brand new concentrate on administration technological know-how, new functions of the versions, and new examples with purposes in monetary threat administration and modeling of monetary data.

This e-book contains 8 chapters.  bankruptcy 1 provides a short advent to the classical thought on either discrete and non-stop time Markov chains. the connection among Markov chains of finite states and matrix conception may also be highlighted. a few classical iterative equipment for fixing linear structures may be brought for locating the desk bound distribution of a Markov chain. The bankruptcy then covers the fundamental theories and algorithms for hidden Markov versions (HMMs) and Markov choice approaches (MDPs).

Chapter 2 discusses the purposes of constant time Markov chains to version queueing structures and discrete time Markov chain for computing the PageRank, the score of web sites on the net. bankruptcy three stories Markovian versions for production and re-manufacturing structures and provides closed shape options and speedy numerical algorithms for fixing the captured structures. In bankruptcy four, the authors current an easy hidden Markov version (HMM) with quickly numerical algorithms for estimating the version parameters. An software of the HMM for purchaser category is usually provided.

Chapter five discusses Markov choice approaches for purchaser lifetime values. purchaser Lifetime Values (CLV) is a vital inspiration and volume in advertising and marketing administration. The authors current an process in accordance with Markov choice strategies for the calculation of CLV utilizing genuine data.

Chapter 6 considers higher-order Markov chain versions, quite a category of parsimonious higher-order Markov chain versions. effective estimation tools for version parameters in accordance with linear programming are awarded. modern examine effects on purposes to call for predictions, stock keep an eye on and fiscal probability size also are offered. In bankruptcy 7, a category of parsimonious multivariate Markov types is brought. back, effective estimation equipment in accordance with linear programming are awarded. purposes to call for predictions, stock keep watch over coverage and modeling credits rankings information are mentioned. eventually, bankruptcy eight re-visits hidden Markov versions, and the authors current a brand new category of hidden Markov types with effective algorithms for estimating the version parameters. purposes to modeling rates of interest, credits rankings and default info are discussed.
This publication is aimed toward senior undergraduate scholars, postgraduate scholars, pros, practitioners, and researchers in utilized arithmetic, computational technology, operational learn, administration technological know-how and finance, who're drawn to the formula and computation of queueing networks, Markov chain types and similar themes. Readers are anticipated to have a few simple wisdom of likelihood conception, Markov techniques and matrix theory.

Nonlinear Time Series: Theory, Methods and Applications with by Randal Douc

By Randal Douc

Designed for researchers and scholars, Nonlinear occasions sequence: conception, tools and purposes with R Examples familiarizes readers with the foundations in the back of nonlinear time sequence models―without overwhelming them with tricky mathematical advancements. via targeting uncomplicated rules and conception, the authors provide readers the historical past required to craft their very own stochastic versions, numerical tools, and software program. they'll even be in a position to investigate the benefits and downsides of alternative ways, and hence have the capacity to decide on definitely the right tools for his or her purposes.

The first half should be visible as a crash path on "classical" time sequence, with a different emphasis on linear nation house versions and precise insurance of random coefficient autoregressions, either ARCH and GARCH types. the second one half introduces Markov chains, discussing balance, the life of a desk bound distribution, ergodicity, restrict theorems, and statistical inference. The ebook concludes with a self-contained account on nonlinear nation area and sequential Monte Carlo equipment. An basic advent to nonlinear nation area modeling and sequential Monte Carlo, this part touches on present issues, from the speculation of statistical inference to complicated computational tools.

The e-book can be utilized as a help to a complicated direction on those equipment, or an creation to this box earlier than learning extra really expert texts. a number of chapters spotlight fresh advancements corresponding to particular fee of convergence of Markov chains and sequential Monte Carlo thoughts. And whereas the chapters are geared up in a logical development, the 3 components could be studied independently.

Statistics isn't a spectator recreation, so the ebook comprises greater than two hundred routines to problem readers. those difficulties increase highbrow muscle mass strained via the creation of recent concept and pass directly to expand the idea in major methods. The booklet is helping readers hone their talents in nonlinear time sequence research and their applications.

Monte carlo and quasi-monte carlo sampling by Christiane Lemieux

By Christiane Lemieux

Quasi–Monte Carlo equipment became an more and more well known replacement to Monte Carlo equipment over the past 20 years. Their profitable implementation on functional difficulties, particularly in finance, has prompted the advance of numerous new learn components inside of this box to which practitioners and researchers from a number of disciplines presently contribute.

This publication provides crucial instruments for utilizing quasi–Monte Carlo sampling in perform. the 1st a part of the ebook specializes in concerns regarding Monte Carlo methods—uniform and non-uniform random quantity new release, variance relief techniques—but the fabric is gifted to organize the readers for the next move, that is to interchange the random sampling inherent to Monte Carlo through quasi–random sampling. the second one a part of the ebook bargains with this subsequent step. numerous facets of quasi-Monte Carlo equipment are coated, together with structures, randomizations, using ANOVA decompositions, and the concept that of powerful size. The 3rd a part of the e-book is dedicated to functions in finance and extra complex statistical instruments like Markov chain Monte Carlo and sequential Monte Carlo, with a dialogue in their quasi–Monte Carlo counterpart.

The must haves for interpreting this booklet are a simple wisdom of information and sufficient mathematical adulthood to stick with during the numerous ideas used during the publication. this article is geared toward graduate scholars in facts, administration technological know-how, operations study, engineering, and utilized arithmetic. it's going to even be important to practitioners who are looking to research extra approximately Monte Carlo and quasi–Monte Carlo equipment and researchers drawn to an up to date consultant to those methods.

Christiane Lemieux is an affiliate Professor and the affiliate Chair for Actuarial technology within the division of statistics and Actuarial technology on the college of Waterloo in Canada. She is an affiliate of the Society of Actuaries and was once the winner of a "Young Researcher Award in Information-Based Complexity" in 2004.
