Modes of Parametric Statistical Inference (Wiley Series in by Seymour Geisser,Wesley O. Johnson

By Seymour Geisser,Wesley O. Johnson

a desirable research into the rules of statistical inference

This booklet examines the unique philosophical foundations of other statistical modes of parametric inference. not like many different texts that concentrate on technique and purposes, this ebook makes a speciality of a slightly certain mixture of theoretical and foundational facets that underlie the sector of statistical inference. Readers achieve a deeper figuring out of the evolution and underlying good judgment of every mode in addition to every one mode's strengths and weaknesses.

The e-book starts with attention-grabbing highlights from the background of statistical inference. Readers are given historic examples of statistical reasoning used to handle sensible difficulties that arose in the course of the centuries. subsequent, the publication is going directly to scrutinize 4 significant modes of statistical inference:
* Frequentist
* Likelihood
* Fiducial
* Bayesian

the writer presents readers with particular examples and counterexamples of occasions and datasets the place the modes yield either related and varied effects, together with a contravention of the chance precept within which Bayesian and probability equipment fluctuate from frequentist tools. each one instance is by means of a close dialogue of why the implications could have diverse from one mode to a different, supporting the reader to realize a better knowing of every mode and the way it really works. in addition, the writer offers significant mathematical element on sure issues to spotlight key facets of theoretical development.

The author's writing kind and use of examples make the textual content transparent and interesting. This booklet is key interpreting for graduate-level scholars in records in addition to a person with an curiosity within the foundations of facts and the foundations underlying statistical inference, together with scholars in arithmetic and the philosophy of technological know-how. Readers with a heritage in theoretical records will locate the textual content either obtainable and absorbing.
