Fourier Transforms of Distributions and Their Inverses: A Collection of Tables is a collection of tables on the integrals of Fourier transforms of distributions and their inverses involving the class of functions which are nonnegative and integrable over the interval. The emphasis is on the probability densities, and a number of examples are provided. This book is organized into two parts and begins with an introduction to those properties of characteristic functions which are important in probability theory, followed by a description of the tables and their use. The first three tables contain Fourier transforms of absolutely continuous distribution functions, namely, even functions (including Legendre functions); functions vanishing identically for negative values of the argument (including arbitrary powers); and functions that do not belong to either of the above classes. The transform pairs are numbered consecutively and arranged systematically according to the analytical character of the frequency function. The next two tables give the inverse transforms of the functions listed in the first and third tables, respectively. This monograph will appeal to students and specialists in the fields of probability and mathematical statistics.

Mathematical Basis of Statistics provides information pertinent to the methods and the mathematical basis of statistics. This book discusses the fundamental notion of statistical space. Organized into 12 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the notion of statistical space in mathematical statistics and discusses other analogies with probability theory. This text then presents the notions of sufficiency and freedom, which are fundamental and useful in statistics but do not correspond to any notion in probability theory. Other chapters consider the theory of nonsequential tests and explain the practical meaning of the mathematical tools employed in statistics. This book discusses as well distributions used most frequently in classical statistical problems based on the normal distribution and provides relationships among these distributions. The final chapter deals with certain problems of mathematical statistics that are related to various problems of functional analysis. This book is a valuable resource for graduate and postgraduate students.

Cluster Analysis for Applications deals with methods and various applications of cluster analysis. Topics covered range from variables and scales to measures of association among variables and among data units. Conceptual problems in cluster analysis are discussed, along with hierarchical and non-hierarchical clustering methods. The necessary elements of data analysis, statistics, cluster analysis, and computer implementation are integrated vertically to cover the complete path from raw data to a finished analysis. Comprised of 10 chapters, this book begins with an introduction to the subject of cluster analysis and its uses as well as category sorting problems and the need for cluster analysis algorithms. The next three chapters give a detailed account of variables and association measures, with emphasis on strategies for dealing with problems containing variables of mixed types. Subsequent chapters focus on the central techniques of cluster analysis with particular reference to computational considerations; interpretation of clustering results; and techniques and strategies for making the most effective use of cluster analysis. The final chapter suggests an approach for the evaluation of alternative clustering methods. The presentation is capped with a complete set of implementing computer programs listed in the Appendices to make the use of cluster analysis as painless and free of mechanical error as is possible. This monograph is intended for students and workers who have encountered the notion of cluster analysis.

Real Analysis and Probability provides the background in real analysis needed for the study of probability. Topics covered range from measure and integration theory to functional analysis and basic concepts of probability. The interplay between measure theory and topology is also discussed, along with conditional probability and expectation, the central limit theorem, and strong laws of large numbers with respect to martingale theory. Comprised of eight chapters, this volume begins with an overview of the basic concepts of the theory of measure and integration, followed by a presentation of various applications of the basic integration theory. The reader is then introduced to functional analysis, with emphasis on structures that can be defined on vector spaces. Subsequent chapters focus on the connection between measure theory and topology; basic concepts of probability; and conditional probability and expectation. Strong laws of large numbers are also examined, first from the classical viewpoint, and then via martingale theory. The final chapter is devoted to the one-dimensional central limit problem, paying particular attention to the fundamental role of Prokhorov's weak compactness theorem. This book is intended primarily for students taking a graduate course in probability.

Weak Convergence of Measures provides information pertinent to the fundamental aspects of weak convergence in probability theory. This book covers a variety of topics, including random variables, Hilbert spaces, Gaussian transforms, probability spaces, and random variables. Organized into six chapters, this book begins with an overview of elementary fundamental notions, including sets, different classes of sets, different topological spaces, and different classes of functions and measures. This text then provides the connection between functionals and measures by providing a detailed introduction of the abstract integral as a bounded, linear functional. Other chapters consider weak convergence of sequences of measures, such as convergence of sequences of bounded, linear functionals. This book discusses as well the weak convergence in the C- and D-spaces, which is reduced to limit problems. The final chapter deals with weak convergence in separable Hilbert spaces. This book is a valuable resource for mathematicians.

To tailor time series models to a particular physical problem and to follow the working of various techniques for processing and analyzing data, one must understand the basic theory of spectral (frequency domain) analysis of time series. This classic book provides an introduction to the techniques and theories of spectral analysis of time series. In a discursive style, and with minimal dependence on mathematics, the book presents the geometric structure of spectral analysis. This approach makes possible useful, intuitive interpretations of important time series parameters and provides a unified framework for an otherwise scattered collection of seemingly isolated results. The books strength lies in its applicability to the needs of readers from many disciplines with varying backgrounds in mathematics. It provides a solid foundation in spectral analysis for fields that include statistics, signal process engineering, economics, geophysics, physics, and geology. Appendices provide details and proofs for those who are advanced in math. Theories are followed by examples and applications over a wide range of topics such as meteorology, seismology, and telecommunications. Topics covered include Hilbert spaces; univariate models for spectral analysis; multivariate spectral models; sampling, aliasing, and discrete-time models; real-time filtering; digital filters; linear filters; distribution theory; sampling properties ofspectral estimates; and linear prediction.
