  1. Data Analysis and Approximate Models

    Model Choice, Location-Scale, Analysis of Variance, Nonparametric Regression and Image Analysis

    By Patrick Laurie Davies

    Series: Chapman & Hall/CRC Monographs on Statistics & Applied Probability

    The First Detailed Account of Statistical Analysis That Treats Models as Approximations The idea of truth plays a role in both Bayesian and frequentist statistics. The Bayesian concept of coherence is based on the fact that two different models or parameter values cannot both be true. Frequentist...

  7. The Dynamics of Discrete Populations and Series of Events

    By Keith Iain Hopcraft, Eric Jakeman, Kevin D. Ridley

    Series: Graduate Student Series in Physics

    Discrete phenomena are an important aspect of various complex systems, acting both as underlying driving mechanisms and as manifestations of diverse behaviours. However, the characterisation of these discrete phenomena requires models that go beyond those featured in existing books. Largely...

  8. Handbook of Differential Entropy

    By Joseph Victor Michalowicz, Jonathan M. Nichols, Frank Bucholtz

    One of the main issues in communications theory is measuring the ultimate data compression possible using the concept of entropy. While differential entropy may seem to be a simple extension of the discrete case, it is a more complex measure that often requires a more careful treatment. Handbook of...
