## Order Statistics and Inference: Estimation MethodsThe literature on order statistics and inference is quite extensive and covers a large number of fields, but most of it is dispersed throughout numerous publications. This volume is the consolidation of the most important results and places an emphasis on estimation. Both theoretical and computational procedures are presented to meet the needs of researchers, professionals, and students. The methods of estimation discussed are well-illustrated with numerous practical examples from both the physical and life sciences, including sociology, psychology, and electrical and chemical engineering. A complete, comprehensive bibliography is included so the book can be used both as a text and reference. |
