Virtually any random process developing chronologically can be viewed as a time series. In economics, closing prices of stocks, the cost of money, the jobless rate, and retail sales are just a few examples of many. Developed from course notes and extensively classroom-tested, Applied Time Series Analysis includes examples across a variety of fields, develops theory, and provides software to address time series problems in a broad spectrum of fields. The authors organize the information in such a format that graduate students in applied science, statistics, and economics can satisfactorily navigate their way through the book while maintaining mathematical rigor. One of the unique features of Applied Time Series Analysis is the associated software, GW-WINKS, designed to help students easily generate realizations from models and explore the associated model and data characteristics. The text explores many important new methodologies that have developed in time series, such as ARCH and GARCH processes, time varying frequencies (TVF), wavelets, and more. Other programs (some written in R and some requiring S-plus) are available on an associated website for performing computations related to the material in the final four chapters.

Proven Material for a Course on the Introduction to the Theory and/or on the Applications of Classical Nonparametric Methods Since its first publication in 1971, Nonparametric Statistical Inference has been widely regarded as the source for learning about nonparametric statistics. The fifth edition carries on this tradition while thoroughly revising at least 50 percent of the material. New to the Fifth Edition Updated and revised contents based on recent journal articles in the literature A new section in the chapter on goodness-of-fit tests A new chapter that offers practical guidance on how to choose among the various nonparametric procedures covered Additional problems and examples Improved computer figures This classic, best-selling statistics book continues to cover the most commonly used nonparametric procedures. The authors carefully state the assumptions, develop the theory behind the procedures, and illustrate the techniques using realistic research examples from the social, behavioral, and life sciences. For most procedures, they present the tests of hypotheses, confidence interval estimation, sample size determination, power, and comparisons of other relevant procedures. The text also gives examples of computer applications based on Minitab, SAS, and StatXact and compares these examples with corresponding hand calculations. The appendix includes a collection of tables required for solving the data-oriented problems. Nonparametric Statistical Inference, Fifth Edition provides in-depth yet accessible coverage of the theory and methods of nonparametric statistical inference procedures. It takes a practical approach that draws on scores of examples and problems and minimizes the theorem-proof format. Jean Dickinson Gibbons was recently interviewed regarding her generous pledge to Virginia Tech.

Along with many practical applications, Bayesian Model Selection and Statistical Modeling presents an array of Bayesian inference and model selection procedures. It thoroughly explains the concepts, illustrates the derivations of various Bayesian model selection criteria through examples, and provides R code for implementation. The author shows how to implement a variety of Bayesian inference using R and sampling methods, such as Markov chain Monte Carlo. He covers the different types of simulation-based Bayesian model selection criteria, including the numerical calculation of Bayes factors, the Bayesian predictive information criterion, and the deviance information criterion. He also provides a theoretical basis for the analysis of these criteria. In addition, the author discusses how Bayesian model averaging can simultaneously treat both model and parameter uncertainties. Selecting and constructing the appropriate statistical model significantly affect the quality of results in decision making, forecasting, stochastic structure explorations, and other problems. Helping you choose the right Bayesian model, this book focuses on the framework for Bayesian model selection and includes practical examples of model selection criteria.

Through clear, step-by-step mathematical calculations, Applied Statistical Inference with MINITAB enables students to gain a solid understanding of how to apply statistical techniques using a statistical software program. It focuses on the concepts of confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, validating model assumptions, and power analysis. Illustrates the techniques and methods using MINITAB After introducing some common terminology, the author explains how to create simple graphs using MINITAB and how to calculate descriptive statistics using both traditional hand computations and MINITAB. She then delves into statistical inference topics, such as confidence intervals and hypothesis testing, as well as linear regression, including the Ryan–Joiner test. Moving on to multiple regression analysis, the text addresses ANOVA, the issue of multicollinearity, assessing outliers, and more. It also provides a conceptual introduction to basic experimental design and one-way ANOVA. The final chapter discusses two-way ANOVA, nonparametric analyses, and time series analysis. Establishes a foundation for studying more complex topics Ideal for students in the social sciences, this text shows how to implement basic inferential techniques in practice using MINITAB. It establishes the foundation for students to build on work in more advanced inferential statistics.
