Laws of Small Numbers: Extremes and Rare Events (Kartoniert / Broschiert / Paperback)

Springer Basel AG, Springer Basel, August 2011


3rd ed - 509 S. - Sprache: Englisch - 244x170x33 mm

ISBN: 3034800088 EAN: 9783034800082

Since the publication of the first edition of this seminar book in 1994, the theory and applications of extremes and rare events have enjoyed an enormous and still increasing interest. The intention of the book is to give a mathematically oriented development of the theory of rare events underlying various applications. This characteristic of the book was strengthened in the second edition by incorporating various new results. In this third edition, the dramatic change of focus of extreme value theory has been taken into account: from concentrating on maxima of observations it has shifted to large observations, defined as exceedances over high thresholds. One emphasis of the present third edition lies on multivariate generalized Pareto distributions, their representations, properties such as their peaks-over-threshold stability, simulation, testing and estimation. Reviews of the 2nd edition: "In brief, it is clear that this will surely be a valuable resource for anyone involved in, or seeking to master, the more mathematical features of this field." David Stirzaker, Bulletin of the London Mathematical Society "Laws of Small Numbers can be highly recommended to everyone who is looking for a smooth introduction to Poisson approximations in EVT and other fields of probability theory and statistics. In particular, it offers an interesting view on multivariate EVT and on EVT for non-iid observations, which is not presented in a similar way in any other textbook." Holger Drees, Metrika

Produktdetails

Since the publication of the first edition of this seminar book in 1994, the theory and applications of extremes and rare events have enjoyed an enormous and still increasing interest. The intention of the book is to give a mathematically oriented development of the theory of rare events underlying various applications. This characteristic of the book was strengthened in the second edition by incorporating various new results on about 130 additional pages. Part II, which has been added in the second edition, discusses recent developments in multivariate extreme value theory. This book is accessible to graduate students and researchers with basic knowledge in probability theory and, partly, in point processes and Gaussian processes. The required statistical prerequisites are minimal.

Kritikerstimmen

From the reviews of the third edition: Review Janet Hefferman, Journal of Applied Statistics The authors claim that the book is aimed at graduate students and researchers with basic knowledge of probability theory. This claim seems slightly misleading, the material instead being written at a research level, and I suspect generally impenetrable to readers without some previous specialist knowledge of the area. Being almost exclusively theoretical in nature, the book is likely to be of little interest or indeed practical use to an applied statistician. However the book offers a useful addition to the literature of the probabilistic theory of extremes as it consolidates recent developments in the field. Review Holger Drees, Metrika The book is completed by an extensive bibliography with almost 400 references and the usual indices. Indeed, this is a big improvement over the first edition where the references were given in each section separately. The readability is further improved by a considerable number of new plots to visualize examples. Unfortunately, a distorting technical error has crept in Sect. 1.2: on page 8 the first sentence ends abruptly in the middle and nine lines which should be printed here are instead given on page 14, where they interrupt another sentence in a similar manner. In summary, Laws of Small Numbers can be highly recommended to everyone who is looking for a smooth introduction to Poisson approximations in EVT and other fields of probability theory and statistics. In particular, it offers an interesting view on multivariate EVT and on EVT for non-iid observations, which is not presented in a similar way in any other textbook. Review David Stirzaker, Bulletin of the London Mathematical Society In brief, it is clear that this will surely be a valuable resource for anyone involved in, or seeking to master, the more mathematical features of this field. "Chapters outline the mathematical development of the basic ideas and their extensions and applications. ... The material is well presented, with clear explanations and illustrations. For a graduate student with a good background in probability theory, I believe that this book can provide a strong foundation for research into a fascinating area." (Martin Crowder, International Statistical Review, Vol. 79 (3), 2011)
