Review:

"Overall, an excellent book for readers interested in qualitative data analysis. Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals." (Choice, 1 October 2011)

"This new edition continues to illustrate the application of statistical methods to research across various disciplines, including medicine, engineering, business/finance, and the social sciences. Thoroughly revised and updated, the authors have refreshed this book to reflect the changes and current trends in statistical distribution theory that have occured since the publication of the previous edition eight years ago . . . key facts and formulas for forty major probability distributions are presented, making the book an ideal introduction to the general theory of statistical distributions as well as a quick reference on its basic principles". (MyCFO, 22 December 2010)

Thoroughly revised and updated, the authors have refreshed this book to reflect the changes and current trends in statistical distribution theory that have occured since the publication of the previous edition eight years ago. The introductory chapters introduce the fundamental concepts of the distributions and the relationships between variables. For each distribution that follows, the key formulae, tables and diagrams are presented in a concise, user-friendly format. Key facts and formulas for forty major probability distributions are presented, making the book an ideal introduction to the general theory of statistical distributions as well as a quick reference on its basic principles".

Fully updated to reflect the latest developments on the topic, Statistical Distributions, Fourth Edition continues to serve as an authoritative guide on the application of statistical methods to research across various disciplines. The book provides a concise presentation of popular statistical distributions along with the necessary knowledge for their successful use in data modeling and analysis.

  • A new chapter on queuing formulas that discusses standard formulas that often arise from simple queuing systems

  • Methods for extending independent modeling schemes to the dependent case, covering techniques for generating complex distributions from simple distributions

  • New coverage of conditional probability, including conditional expectations and joint and marginal distributions

  • Commonly used tables associated with the normal (Gaussian), student-t, F and chi-square distributions

  • Additional reviewing methods for the estimation of unknown parameters, such as the method of percentiles, the method of moments, maximum likelihood inference, and Bayesian inference

Statistical Distributions, Fourth Edition is an excellent supplement for upper-undergraduate and graduate level courses on the topic. It is also a valuable reference for researchers and practitioners in the fields of engineering, economics, operations research, and the social sciences who conduct statistical analyses.
