in Statistics (Books).

A Transition to Advanced Mathematics. in Statistics (Books).

John Ernst Freund (August 6, 1921 – August 14, 2004) was a prominent author of university level textbooks on statistics and a mathematics professor at Arizona State University. Born in Berlin, Germany, he emigrated to Palestine in the 1930s. He studied at the University of London and at the University of California at Los Angeles, from which he received his bachelor's degree. He did graduate work at Columbia University and the University of Pittsburgh, from which he received his doctorate in 1952.

John E. Freund's Mathematical Statistics. Irwin Miller Marylees Miller. In many problems of statistics we must list all the alternatives that are possible in a given situation, or at least determine how many different possibilities there are. In connection with the latter, we often use the following theorem, sometimes called the basic principle of counting,thecounting rule for compound events,ortherule for the multiplication of choices.

Short Description Statistics no longer consists merely of the collection of data and their presentation in charts and tables; it is now considered t. .

Statistics no longer consists merely of the collection of data and their presentation in charts and tables; it is now considered to encompass the science of basing inferences on observed data and the entire problem of making decisions in the face of uncertainty.

This book emphasizes the theory of mathematical statistics while using applications and precise language to help illustrate points and motivate students. This new edition features exercises throughout each chapter; presents a dual approach to hypothesis testing - basing decisions on statistics and critical regions or P-values; expands coverage of estimation; treats analysis of t x c tables with ordered categories; and discusses robustness for estimation and testing hypotheses.

Terse, but in the best way possible. Mathematical Statistics (MS) is for those who already have a firm introduction to probability and some work in statistics. Any rigorous mathematical background (especially in analysis) is definitely a bonus, which is the level this text is written at.

I haven't read all of MS (there's A LOT of material here) but I have gone through all of chapter 1 (took 5 weeks to cover in the course that used this text), and then bits and pieces through chapter 4. That is, I took a course that used this book and we covered all of the first chapter plus bits and pieces of chapters 2-4 over 10 weeks. At first when I started reading this book, I wasn't impressed. However, the more I read, the more patient I became with the text due to the insights it provided -- after chapter one, the pieces start falling together. This isn't just some statistics book to get the reader to understand what a maximum likelihood estimate or the information inequality is -- MS is about tying together concepts and, specifically, relating these concepts to exponential families (not to be confused with an exponential distribution, which is one type of exponential family).

Exponential families are emphasized in this book and were something I had never heard of prior to reading this book (exponential, beta, and normal distributions are all examples of exponential families). The exposure to the properties, Theorems, and the propositions of these families that make them unique has brought my understanding of these concepts and their implementation to an entirely new level. This is a theory book, but with theory comes application, and the problems (some extremely difficult) help make this expansion to application.

Having mentioned just a fraction of what this book is about, now I have to be real. This book is hard. I was a math major (now a stats grad student) with a good grounding in statistical concepts and this book is hard. Many people will not like this book, but for those who are willing to commit a lot of time to learning statistical background and theory should find this book a treasure. I cannot emphasize enough that this book is certainly slower reading than the average statistics book. I would give it a 2:1 or 3:1 ratio in required reading time to the average texts -- this book is just not the average. With all this said, my opinion of this book certainly differs from others who also took the course but had a less rigorous mathematical background or had less prior knowledge about some of the statistical concepts.

A good complementary text is Probability and Statistics (P&S), by DeGroot, which gives basics about many of the topics expanded on in Mathematical Statistics. About 5-6 people in my class ended up buying P&S to supplement MS, and all those I talked to agreed P&S was better for introducing topics. For a truly ambitious individual, self-study would be possible but difficult with this book (complement MS with P&S if there are difficulties in self-study).

I'm surprised of the many positive reviews for this book. Matter of fact is, THIS IS NOT A GOOD BOOK, whether it be used as a graduate text or as a reference book. I tried to use the book as a reference to my statistical theory course.

It came as a shock to me that during the discussion of UMVUE's the is no reference (I didn't find it anyway and the is certainly no mention of it in the index) to complete sufficient statistics. How can that be? Also, I'm not sure if there is discussion of equivariance in the book for example. I mean I saw it mentioned, no definition though, and no mention of it in the index. These points are my arguments for it to be the wrong book to use as a textbook.

The style of the book makes it hard to read too, and I say this NOT BECAUSE IT IS AN ABSTRACT BOOK, but because it is poorly referenced to ITSELF on past arguments. The index is almost useless. Oh, and the typos...........LOTS OF TYPOS. These facts affect the use of the book as a reference.

Conclusion, the 1977 edition is a much better textbook. This one has its good points (such as choosing a combination of a sufficient statistic and an ancillary statistic without loosing any information from your sample. A handy trick for some estimation problems, like say mixtures) but they are to few to supress the weaknesses. For contemporary courses the Casella and Berger book is widely used and although not a complete textbook either, (you would need references for it too) it is much more useful than Bickel and Doksum.

If you need a text to learn the foundations of ststistics toward developing into a professional in the trade this is a must have. Precise, clear and to the point.

This is the first time that I encountered a textbook that has so many typo errors (terrible enough, most of them are in the equations!) The errors literally reach an extent that will impact your understanding of the contexts smoothly. Given the authors are 2 mathematicians and the publisher is one of the best recognized textbook publishers in the world.....I seriously doubt they ever read the proof before printing. I regret I spent the money to buy this piece of junk.

This is an excellent statistics book. It tries to teach statistical concepts without using too much math. It takes a lot of time and efforts to read the book and understand the concept. But it is well worth the time and efforts. I love this book!

This was a supplementary text for a graduate course, and I barely used it.

Good test, easy to read, lots of worked examples
Best price!
