Mathematical Statistics with Applications, Second Edition, gives an up-to-date introduction to the theory of statistics with a wealth of real-world applications that will help students approach statistical problem solving in a logical manner. The book introduces many modern statistical computational and simulation concepts that are not covered in other texts; such as the Jackknife, bootstrap methods, the EM algorithms, and Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods such as the Metropolis algorithm, Metropolis-Hastings algorithm and the Gibbs sampler. Goodness of fit methods are included to identify the probability distribution that characterizes the probabilistic behavior or a given set of data. Engineering students, especially, will find these methods to be very important in their studies.
  • Step-by-step procedure to solve real problems, making the topic more accessible
  • Exercises blend theory and modern applications
  • Practical, real-world chapter projects
  • Provides an optional section in each chapter on using Minitab, SPSS and SAS commands
  • Wide array of coverage of ANOVA, Nonparametric, MCMC, Bayesian and empirical methods
  • Instructor's Manual; Solutions to Selected Problems, data sets, and image bank for students
