Theories in Probability: An Examination of Logical and Qualitative Foundations (Advanced Series on Mathematical Psychology)

Regular likelihood thought has been an tremendously profitable contribution to fashionable technological know-how. besides the fact that, from many views it really is too slim as a basic idea of uncertainty, quite for concerns related to subjective uncertainty. This first-of-its-kind e-book is based mostly on qualitative techniques to probabilistic-like uncertainty, and comprises qualitative theories for a standard concept in addition to numerous of its generalizations.

An Introduction to Statistical Inference and Its Applications

Emphasizing thoughts instead of recipes, An creation to Statistical Inference and Its purposes with R presents a transparent exposition of the equipment of statistical inference for college kids who're ok with mathematical notation. various examples, case reports, and routines are incorporated. R is used to simplify computation, create figures, and draw pseudorandom samples—not to accomplish whole analyses.

Probability on Discrete Structures

Such a lot likelihood difficulties contain random variables listed by way of house and/or time. those difficulties normally have a model within which area and/or time are taken to be discrete. This quantity offers with components during which the discrete model is extra average than the continual one, maybe even the single one than may be formulated with out complex structures and equipment.

Introduction to Bayesian Estimation and Copula Models of Dependence

Provides an advent to Bayesian facts, provides an emphasis on Bayesian equipment (prior and posterior), Bayes estimation, prediction, MCMC,Bayesian regression, and Bayesian research of statistical modelsof dependence, and contours a spotlight on copulas for possibility administration creation to Bayesian Estimation and Copula versions of Dependence emphasizes the functions of Bayesian research to copula modeling and equips readers with the instruments had to enforce the approaches of Bayesian estimation in copula versions of dependence.

Five [1] FALSE TRUE TRUE TRUE TRUE Another type of vector that R supports is a logical vector. The elements in a logical vector are either TRUE or FALSE (R requires these be in all uppercase). To differentiate logical vectors from character vectors, there are no quotes around TRUE and FALSE when they are used as values. 16 also shows an example creating a logical vector and assigning that vector to an object called l o g i c a l . vector. While the c() function can be used to create a logical vector, they are more often generated through the use of conditional statements.

Packages () function is used. If this is the first time a package is installed, after executing i n s t a l l . packages ( ) , a list of all of the CRAN mirror sites will be presented. After selecting a mirror site, a list of available packages will appear. ) Select the appropriate package desired and R will download and install it. 1 Some authors and instructors will use the term library instead of package. 1: Example of the R console window on a Mac. The name of the package can also be typed—inside of quotation marks—directly into the i n s t a l l .

16 when assigning the logical values in the object l o g i c a l , vector. However, it is quicker to write a conditional statement and then use the assignment operator to store the logical values produced into a new vector. 16 in the assignment of the object o l d e r . t h a n . f ive. 6 GETTING HELP The R Development Core Team has written several helpful documents for the novice user, such as The R FAQ (Hornik, 2010), An Introduction to R (Venables, Smith, & the R Development Core Team, 2009), and R Data Import/Export (R Development Core Team, 2009).
