Testing Statistical Hypotheses: Edition 3

Free sample

The Third Edition of Testing Statistical Hypotheses brings it into consonance with the Second Edition of its companion volume on point estimation (Lehmann and Casella, 1998) to which we shall refer as TPE2. We won’t here comment on the long history of the book which is recounted in Lehmann (1997) but shall use this Preface to indicate the principal changes from the 2nd Edition. The present volume is divided into two parts. Part I (Chapters 1–10) treats small-sample theory, while Part II (Chapters 11–15) treats large-sample theory. The preface to the 2nd Edition stated that “the most important omission is an adequate treatment of optimality paralleling that given for estimation in TPE.” We shall here remedy this failure by treating the di?cult topic of asymptotic optimality (in Chapter 13) together with the large-sample tools needed for this purpose (in Chapters 11 and 12). Having developed these tools, we use them in Chapter 14 to give a much fuller treatment of tests of goodness of ?t than was possible in the 2nd Edition, and in Chapter 15 to provide an introduction to the bootstrap and related techniques. Various large-sample considerations that in the Second Edition were discussed in earlier chapters now have been moved to Chapter 11.

Praise for the Third Edition

"It is, as far as I'm concerned, among the best books in math ever written....if you are a mathematician and want to have the top reference in probability, this is it." (Amazon.com, January 2006)

A complete and comprehensive classic in probability and measure theory

Probability and Measure, Anniversary Edition by Patrick Billingsley celebrates the achievements and advancements that have made this book a classic in its field for the past 35 years. Now re-issued in a new style and format, but with the reliable content that the third edition was revered for, this Anniversary Edition builds on its strong foundation of measure theory and probability with Billingsley's unique writing style. In recognition of 35 years of publication, impacting tens of thousands of readers, this Anniversary Edition has been completely redesigned in a new, open and user-friendly way in order to appeal to university-level students.

This book adds a new foreward by Steve Lally of the Statistics Department at The University of Chicago in order to underscore the many years of successful publication and world-wide popularity and emphasize the educational value of this book. The Anniversary Edition contains features including:

An improved treatment of Brownian motionReplacement of queuing theory with ergodic theoryTheory and applications used to illustrate real-life situationsOver 300 problems with corresponding, intensive notes and solutionsUpdated bibliographyAn extensive supplement of additional notes on the problems and chapter commentaries

Patrick Billingsley was a first-class, world-renowned authority in probability and measure theory at a leading U.S. institution of higher education. He continued to be an influential probability theorist until his unfortunate death in 2011. Billingsley earned his Bachelor's Degree in Engineering from the U.S. Naval Academy where he served as an officer. he went on to receive his Master's Degree and doctorate in Mathematics from Princeton University.Among his many professional awards was the Mathematical Association of America's Lester R. Ford Award for mathematical exposition. His achievements through his long and esteemed career have solidified Patrick Billingsley's place as a leading authority in the field and been a large reason for his books being regarded as classics.

This Anniversary Edition of Probability and Measure offers advanced students, scientists, and engineers an integrated introduction to measure theory and probability. Like the previous editions, this Anniversary Edition is a key resource for students of mathematics, statistics, economics, and a wide variety of disciplines that require a solid understanding of probability theory.
