Organized to honor Arnold’s significant contributions to the field, this volume is an outgrowth of the "International Conference on Distribution Theory, Order Statistics, and Inference," held at the University of Cantabria, Santander, Spain. Several distinguished and active researchers highlight some of the recent developments in statistical distribution theory, order statistics and their properties, as well as inferential methods associated with them. Applications to survival analysis, reliability, quality control, and environmental problems are emphasized. The volume is classified into the following five parts, according to the focus of the articles: * Discrete distributions and applications * Continuous distributions and applications * Order statistics and applications * Reliability and applications * Inference This comprehensive reference work will serve the statistical and applied mathematics communities, as well as practitioners, researchers, and graduate students in applied probability and statistics, reliability engineering, and biostatistics. 0aDistribution (Probability theory. 0aMathematical statistics. 0aStatistics. 0aMathematics.14aProbability Theory and Stochastic Processes.0http://scigraph.springernature.com/things/product-market-codes/M2700424aStatistical Theory and Methods.0http://scigraph.springernature.com/things/product-market-codes/S1100124aStatistics for Engineering, Physics, Computer Science, Chemistry and Earth Sciences.0http://scigraph.springernature.com/things/product-market-codes/S1702024aApplications of Mathematics.0http://scigraph.springernature.com/things/product-market-codes/M130031 aBalakrishnan, N.eeditor.4edt4http://id.loc.gov/vocabulary/relators/edt1 aSarabia, José María.eeditor.4edt4http://id.loc.gov/vocabulary/relators/edt1 aCastillo, Enrique.eeditor.4edt4http://id.loc.gov/vocabulary/relators/edt2 aSpringerLink (Online service)0 tSpringer eBooks08iPrinted edition:z978081767079508iPrinted edition:z9780817643614 0aStatistics for Industry and Technology,x2364-624140uhttps://doi.org/10.1007/0-8176-4487-3
