Empirical Likelihood (Chapman & Hall/CRC Monographs on by Art B. Owen

By Art B. Owen

Empirical chance offers inferences whose validity doesn't rely on specifying a parametric version for the knowledge. since it makes use of a chance, the tactic has convinced inherent benefits over resampling tools: it makes use of the information to figure out the form of the boldness areas, and it makes it effortless to mixed facts from a number of assets. It additionally allows incorporating aspect info, and it simplifies accounting for censored, truncated, or biased sampling.

One of the 1st books released at the topic, Empirical probability bargains an in-depth remedy of this system for developing self belief areas and trying out hypotheses. the writer applies empirical chance to a variety of difficulties, from these so simple as atmosphere a self belief area for a univariate suggest lower than IID sampling, to difficulties outlined via soft capabilities of potential, regression types, generalized linear versions, estimating equations, or kernel smooths, and to sampling with non-identically dispensed information. plentiful figures provide visible reinforcement of the techniques and methods. Examples from numerous disciplines and certain descriptions of algorithms-also published on a spouse site at-illustrate the equipment in perform. routines aid readers to appreciate and observe the methods.

The approach to empirical chances are now attracting critical cognizance from researchers in econometrics and biostatistics, in addition to from statisticians. This ebook is your chance to discover its foundations, its merits, and its program to a myriad of functional problems.
