In the area of applied statistics, scientists use statistical distributions to model a wide range of practical problems, from modeling the size grade distribution of onions to modeling global positioning data. To apply these probability models successfully, practitioners and researchers must have a thorough understanding of the theory as well as a familiarity with the practical situations. The Handbook of Statistical Distributions with Applications is the first reference to combine popular probability distribution models, formulas, applications, and software to assist you in computing probabilities, percentiles, moments, and other statistics. Presenting both common and specialized probability distribution models, as well as providing applications with practical examples, this handbook offers comprehensive coverage of plots of probability density functions, methods of computing probability and percentiles, algorithms for random number generation, and inference, including point estimation, hypothesis tests, and sample size determination. The book discusses specialized distributions, some nonparametric distributions, tolerance factors for a multivariate normal distribution, and the distribution of the sample correlation coefficient, among others. Developed by the author, the StatCal software (available for download at www.crcpress.com), along with the text, offers a useful reference for computing various table values. By using the software, you can compute probabilities, parameters, and moments; find exact tests; and obtain exact confidence intervals for distributions, such as binomial, hypergeometric, Poisson, negative binomial, normal, lognormal, inverse Gaussian, and correlation coefficient. In the applied statistics world, the Handbook of Statistical Distributions with Applications is now the reference for examining distribution functions - including univariate, bivariate normal, and multivariate - their definitions, their use in statistical inference, and their algorithms for random number generation.

A milestone in the published literature on the subject, this first-ever Handbook of Beta Distribution and Its Applications clearly enumerates the properties of beta distributions and related mathematical notions. It summarizes modern applications in a variety of fields, reviews up-and-coming progress from the front lines of statistical research and practice, and demonstrates the applicability of beta distributions in fields such as economics, quality control, soil science, and biomedicine. The book discusses the centrality of beta distributions in Bayesian inference, the beta-binomial model and applications of the beta-binomial distribution, and applications of Dirichlet integrals.

This textbook is an application-oriented introduction to the theory of distributions, a powerful tool used in mathematical analysis. The treatment emphasizes applications that relate distributions to linear partial differential equations and Fourier analysis problems found in mechanics, optics, quantum mechanics, quantum field theory, and signal analysis. The book is motivated by many exercises, hints, and solutions that guide the reader along a path requiring only a minimal mathematical background.
