Elements of Distribution Theory

Elements of Distribution Theory

- Collection Cambridge series in statistical and probabilistic mathematics

514 pages, parution le 08/12/2005


This detailed introduction to distribution theory is designed as a text for the probability portion of the first year statistical theory sequence for Master's and PhD students in statistics, biostatistics and econometrics. The text uses no measure theory, requiring only a background in calculus and linear algebra. Topics range from the basic distribution and density functions, expectation, conditioning, characteristic functions, cumulants, convergence in distribution and the central limit theorem to more advanced concepts such as exchangeability, models with a group structure, asymptotic approximations to integrals and orthogonal polynomials. An appendix gives a detailed summary of the mathematical definitions and results that are used in the book.

  • Provides a comprehensive discussion of the major results of distribution theory at a level not requiring advanced probability theory
  • There are over 300 examples and 340 exercises, and it contains detailed proofs of nearly every result
  • The topics are chosen in order to prepare the reader for advanced study in statistics, rather than distribution or probability theory easy to understand
