Описание: A fundamental issue in statistical analysis is testing the fit of a particular probability model to a set of observed data. Monte Carlo approximation to the null distribution of the test provides a convenient and powerful means of testing model fit. Nonparametric Monte Carlo Tests and Their Applications proposes a new Monte Carlo-based methodology to construct this type of approximation when the model is semistructured. When there are no nuisance parameters to be estimated, the nonparametric Monte Carlo test can exactly maintain the significance level, and when nuisance parameters exist, this method can allow the test to asymptotically maintain the level. The author addresses both applied and theoretical aspects of nonparametric Monte Carlo tests. The new methodology has been used for model checking in many fields of statistics, such as multivariate distribution theory, parametric and semiparametric regression models, multivariate regression models, varying-coefficient models with longitudinal data, heteroscedasticity, and homogeneity of covariance matrices. This book will be of interest to both practitioners and researchers investigating goodness-of-fit tests and resampling approximations.Every chapter of the book includes algorithms, simulations, and theoretical deductions. The prerequisites for a full appreciation of the book are a modest knowledge of mathematical statistics and limit theorems in probability/empirical process theory. The less mathematically sophisticated reader will find Chapters 1, 2 and 6 to be a comprehensible introduction on how and where the new method can apply and the rest of the book to be a valuable reference for Monte Carlo test approximation and goodness-of-fit tests.Lixing Zhu is Associate Professor of Statistics at the University of Hong Kong. He is a winner of the Humboldt Research Award at Alexander-von Humboldt Foundation of Germany and an elected Fellow of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics.From the reviews:"These lecture notes discuss several topics in goodness-of-fit testing, a classical area in statistical analysis. вЂ¦ The mathematical part contains detailed proofs of the theoretical results. Simulation studies illustrate the quality of the Monte Carlo approximation. вЂ¦ this book constitutes a recommendable contribution to an active area of current research." Winfried Stute for Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2006"...Overall, this is an interesting book, which gives a nice introduction to this new and specific field of resampling methods."

Описание: The concept of nonparametric smoothing is a central idea in statistics that aims to simultaneously estimate and modes the underlying structure. This book aims to present the statistical and mathematical principles of smoothing with a focus on applicable techniques.
Описание: Nonparametric Regression and Generalized Linear Models focuses on the roughness penalty method of nonparametric smoothing and shows how this technique provides a unifying approach to a wide range of smoothing problems. The emphasis is methodological rather than theoretical, and the authors concentrate on statistical and computation issues. Real data examples are used to illustrate the various methods and to compare them with standard parametric approaches. The mathematical treatment is self-contained and depends mainly on simple linear algebra and calculus. This monograph will be useful both as a reference work for research and applied statisticians and as a text for graduate students.
Описание: A fundamental problem in statistical analysis is checking how well a particular probability model fits a set of observed data. In many settings, nonparametric
smoothing methods provide a convenient and powerful means of testing model fit. Nonparametric Smoothing and Lack-of-Fit Tests explores the use of smoothing methods in testing the
fit of parametric regression models.
The book reviews many of the existing methods for testing lack-of-fit and also proposes a number of new methods. Both applied and
theoretical aspects of the model checking problems are addressed. As such, the book should be of interest to practitioners of statistics and researchers investigating either lack-of-fit
tests or nonparametric smoothing ideas.
The first four chapters of the book are an introduction to the problem of estimating regression functions by nonparametric smoothers,
primarily those of kernel and Fourier series type. This part of the book could be used as the foundation for a graduate level course on nonparametric function estimation. The
prerequisites for a full appreciation of the book are a modest knowledge of calculus and some familiarity with the basics of mathematical statistics.
The less mathematically
sophisticated reader will find Chapter 2 to be a comprehensible introduction to smoothing ideas and the rest of the book to be a valuable reference for both nonparametric function
estimation and lack-of-fit tests. Jeffrey D. Hart is Pr
fessor of Statistics at Texas A&M University.

Описание: This book presents the contemporary statistical methods and theory of nonlinear time series analysis. The principal focus is on nonparametric and semiparametric techniques developed in the last decade. It covers the techniques for modelling in state-space, in frequency-domain as well as in time-domain. To reflect the integration of parametric and nonparametric methods in analyzing time series data, the book also presents an up-to-date exposure of some parametric nonlinear models, including ARCH/GARCH models and threshold models. A compact view on linear ARMA models is also provided. Data arising in real applications are used throughout to show how nonparametric approaches may help to reveal local structure in high-dimensional data. Important technical tools are also introduced. The book will be useful for graduate students, application-oriented time series analysts, and new and experienced researchers. It will have the value both within the statistical community and across a broad spectrum of other fields such as econometrics, empirical finance, population biology and ecology. The prerequisites are basic courses in probability and statistics.

Описание: Modern apparatuses allow us to collect samples of functional data, mainly curves but also images. On the other hand, nonparametric statistics produces useful tools for standard data exploration. This book links these two fields of modern statistics by explaining how functional data can be studied through parameter-free statistical ideas.
Описание: This book provides a comprehensive look at statistical inference from record-breaking data in both parametric and nonparametric settings, including Bayesian inference. A unique feature is that it treats the area of nonparametric function estimation from such data in detail, gathering results on this topic to date in one accessible volume. Previous books on records have focused mainly on the probabilistic behavior of records, prediction of future records, and characterizations of the distributions of record values, addressing some inference methods only briefly. The main purpose of this book is to fill this void on general inference from record values.Statisticians, mathematicians, and engineers will find the book useful as a research reference and in learning about making inferences from record-breaking data. The book can also serve as part of a graduate-level statistics or mathematics course, complementing material on the probabilistic aspects of record values. For a basic understanding of the statistical concepts, a one-year graduate course in mathematical statistics provides sufficient background. For a detailed understanding of the convergence theory of the nonparametric function estimators, a course in measure theory or probability theory at the graduate level is useful.
