Characterizations of Probability Distributions. A Unified Approach with an Emphasis on Exponential and Related Models.

Authors: Galambos, Janos, Kotz, Samuel Free Preview. This book is a concise presentation of the normal distribution on the real line and its counterparts on more abstract spaces, which we shall call the Gaussian distributions. The material is selected towards presenting characteristic properties, or characterizations, of the normal distribution.

Applications to characterizations of some probability distributions Kotz and Steutel () and Yeo and Milne () have given univariate and mul- tivariate characterizations of the exponential and the uniform distributions based on the product z = UV of two.

We derive some characterizations of probability distributions for linear forms of $Q$-independent random variables. The aim of the book is to present various characterizations of exponential distribution based on ordered random variables.

The book is written on a lower technical level and requires basic knowledge of mathematics and statistics.

It consists of six chapters. The first chapter lists cumulative distribution functions, probability density functions, hazard functions and reverse hazard functions of one hundred thirty-six important univariate continuous distributions.

Chapter Two provides characterizations of these distributions based on the ratio of two truncated moments. “The excellent book of Professors G.G. Hamedani and M. Maadooliat is devoted to characterizations of a large number of recently published continuous univariate distributions.

It covers characterizations of recently published continuous univariate distributions. This book is a concise presentation of the normal distribution on the real line and its counterparts on more abstract spaces, which we shall call the Gaussian distributions.

The material is selected towards presenting characteristic properties, or characterizations, of the normal distribution.

There are many such properties and there are numerous rel evant works in the literature. By characterizations of probability distributions we understand general problems of description of some set in the space by extracting the sets ⊆ and ⊆ which describe the properties of random variables ∈ and their images = ∈, obtained by means of a specially chosen mapping: →.

The book, with its comprehensive information in analytical, tabular, and graphical form, is an invaluable tool for scientists and engineers. ―Dr. Sergio Benedetto, Politecnico di Torino.

Anyone writing a probability text today owes a great debt to William Feller, who taught us all how to make probability come alive as a subject matter. If you find an example, an application, or an exercise that you really like, it probably had its origin in Feller’s classic text, An Introduction to Probability Theory and Its Applications.

Download PDF Abstract: From the distributional characterizations that lie at the heart of Stein's method we derive explicit formulae for the mass functions of discrete probability laws that identify those distributions. These identities are applied to develop tools for the solution of statistical problems.

Our characterizations, and hence the applications built on them, do not require any. $\begingroup$ @ColorStatistics: I suppose I was taking the question to ask as much for an introduction to distribution theory as for a compendium of brand-name distribution families.

Your suggestions certainly seem worth putting into an answer. For book recommendations in particular, there often doesn't seem much good reason for OPs to accept one answer rather than another; but note that they. The book covers all subjects that I need except the required materials on joint distributions.

It would be great to have two more chapters to cover joint probability distributions for discrete and continuous random variables. Also I feel that the last chapter on random walks is not necessary to be included. Content Accuracy rating: 5.

This book covers only a fraction of theoretical apparatus of high-dimensional probability, and it illustrates it with only a sample of data science applications.

Each chapter in this book is concluded with a Notes section, which has pointers to other texts on the. Chapter six presents characterizations of eighty distributions, contained in a published paper (Hamedani, b).

Finally, chapter seven consists of seventy proposed distributions. The main reason to include previously published papers in Chapters is to provide a rather complete source for the interested researchers who would want to avoid.

A theorem is on a characterization of a distribution function if it concludes that a set of conditions is satisfied by distribution function and only by the distribution function. In this book a family of probability distribution have been characterized through conditional expectations of the difference of two order statistics, record values.

In designing a stochastic model for a particular modeling problem, an investigator will be vitally interested to know if their model fits the requirements of a specific underlying probability distribution.

To this end, the investigator will vitally depend on the characterizations of the selected distribution. The Amoroso, SSK (Shakil–Singh–Kibria), SKS (Shakil–Kibria–Singh), SK (Shakil.

Chapter 1 introduces the probability model and provides motivation for the study of probability. The basic properties of a probability measure are developed. Chapter 2 deals with discrete, continuous, joint distributions, and the effects of a change of variable.

It also introduces the topic of simulating from a probability distribution. Decisions of non-homogeneous convolution equations on the half and applications for building stability estimations in characterizations of probability distributions devoted one of the major works of the author.

His investigation of stability of characterizations of probability distributions R. Januškevičius has completed in the book in A major component of such a formulation is to identify the probability distribution of the underlying lifetime.

We discuss some possible lifetime distributions and their properties in this chapter. Often, a family of distributions is initially chosen and then a member that adequately describes the features of the data is assumed to be the model. In the present paper the converse theorems are proven so that characterizations of the normal distribution are obtained.

The problem leads to the functional equations () and () whose solution yields the desired results. This volume covers some theoretical probability distributions of discrete and continuous random variables, namely, Bernoulli, Binomial, Geometric, Negative Binomial, Poisson, Hypergeometric, Multinomial, Uniform, Exponential, Gamma, Beta and Normal Distributions.

The book has a large number of motivating solved examples and contains a lot. Provides in an organized manner characterizations of univariate probability distributions with many new results published in this area since the work of Golambos & Kotz "Characterizations of Probability Distributions" (Springer), together with applications.

Series Title: Mathematics research developments series. We will provide an example to accompany the explanation. This example relates to the height of ten year-old children: A continuous variable – the normal probability distribution reflects the distribution of a continuous variable, which can receive any numerical value, i.e., whole., numbers (for example, centimeters), numbers with fractions (for instance, centimeters), positive.

Both kinds of characterizations have been extended to “information measures” depending on more than two distributions. Here, only the following corollary of more general (deep) results in the book [26] is mentioned, as an illustration.
