A wide-ranging, extensive overview of modern mathematical statistics, this work reflects the current state of the field while being succinct and easy to grasp. The mathematical presentation is coherent and rigorous throughout. The author presents classical results and methods that form the basis of modern statistics, and examines the foundations of estimation theory, hypothesis testing theory and statistical game theory. He then considers statistical problems for two or more samples, and those in which observations are taken from different distributions. Methods of finding optimal and asymptotically optimal statistical procedures are given, along with treatments of homogeneity testing, regression, variance analysis and pattern recognition. The author also posits a number of methodological improvements that simplify proofs, and brings together a number of new results which have never before been published in a single monograph.

Chapters ten and elevencover asymptotic theory for central, intermediate, and extremeorder statistics, representing twice the coverage of this subjectthan the previous edition. New sections include: Stochastic orderings Characterizations Distribution-free prediction intervals Bootstrap estimations Moving order statistics Studentized range Ranked-set sampling Estimators of tail index The authors further explain application procedures for manydata-analysis techniques and quality control. An appendix providesa guide to related tables and computer algorithms. Extensiveexercise sets have been updated since the last edition. In spite ofmany eliminations, the total number of references has increasedfrom 1,000 to 1,500. Expanded coverage of shortcut methods, robust estimation, lifetesting, reliability, L-statistics, and extreme-value theorycomplete this one-of-a-kind resource.
