Applied Time Series

Analysis and Forecasting NEW TEXTBOOK
T. M. J. A. Cooray
Applied Time Series: Analysis and Forecasting provides the theories methods and tools for necessary modeling and forecasting of
time series. It includes a complete theoretical development of univariate time series models with each step demonstrated with an
analysis of real time data series. The result is clear presentation, quantified subjective judgment derived from selected models applied
to time series observations. Utilizing real time series to demonstrate theoretical Approaches, the author explores diverse aspects of time
series, including how to identify structure, explain observed behaviour, model structures and behaviours, and interpret analysis to make
informed forecast. The book also illustrates concepts such as components decomposition, fundamental model form such as trends
cycles seasonality and practical requirement.

Introduction to Applied Statistics

A Non-Calculus Based Approach FORTHCOMING TEXTBOOK
David D. Hanagal
Introduction to Applied Statistics: A Non-Calculus Based Approach expresses our intent to introduce readers to statistics as it is used in practice. Introduction
to Applied statistics is concerned with gaining understanding from data; it focuses on problem solving rather than on methods that may be useful in specific
settings. A text cannot fully imitate practice, because it must teach specific methods in a logical order and must use data that are not the reader’s own.
This book makes non-statisticians, under-graduates, graduates, scientists and researchers understand statistics easily. The proofs of theorem and lemmas
are not that necessary at the elementary level but it is necessary to know when, where and why to use these tools instead of proving a theorem or lemma. This
book is very brief and compact in size and covers only the most necessary topics useful in day today life.
Contents: Frequency Distribution and Graphical Representation of Data / Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion / Probability Theory / Probability Distributions /
Sampling Distribution / Statistical Inference: Estimation / Statistical Inference: Testing of Hypothesis / Analysis of Variance / Simple Linear Regression and Correlation / Nonparametric

An Introductory Course of Statistical Mechanics


An Introductory Course of Statistical Mechanics introduces the subject to readers without any prior knowledge of the subject. In most
textbooks, Statistical Mechanics appears to be a branch of Condensed Matter Physics. This book has a different perspective. It gives great
importance to relativistic systems, thus paving the way for various applications of Statistical Mechanics, from nuclear reactions to Astrophysics
and Cosmology. Non-relativistic systems and their applications to Condensed Matter Physics are not abandoned either: there are discussions
on gases, liquids and magnetic systems. The book ends with one chapter on Phase Transitions and one on Boltzmann equation. Overall,
the book presents Statistical Mechanics from a broader perspective encompassing many branches of Physics.

The Laws of Large Numbers


The Laws of Large Numbers contains the usual laws of large numbers together with the recent ones derived in unified and elementary
approaches. Most of these results are valid for dependent and possibly non-identical sequence of random variables. These are
established under much greater generalities with methods drastically simpler than the standard ones available in current text-books.
Using the uniform Integrability type conditions, the monograph supplements the strong laws of large numbers by proving Lp-convergence
of the sample mean to its expectations.

Optimal Maintenance of Large Engineering System

Practical Strategies for Effective Decision Making
A. K. Verma, A. Srividya, P. G. Ramesh FORTHCOMING TEXTBOOK

Maintenance has an essential role in ensuring that engineering systems perform at expected levels of reliability, availability and safety in a cost effective
manner and in keeping with the corporate demands. A review of extensive research in the field of maintenance indicates that most models either have over-
simplified assumptions or are analytically and computationally too intensive for practical application. Optimal Maintenance of Large Engineering System
endeavors to address this anomaly for the maintenance decision maker and researcher. The book brings under one roof, a critical discussion on the classical
and contemporary analysis of maintenance models, presentation of maintenance decision as a multi-objective optimization problem using genetic algorithms
and use for fuzzy logic for handling uncertainty and expert opinion or domain knowledge with particular reference to maintenance of large engineering
systems. There are also necessary inputs to equip the readers with the necessary skills, such as genetic algorithms, fuzzy sets, bayesian statistics, etc., as
well as a detailed exposure to tools and techniques for maintenance planning and management, CMMS and expert systems.

Survey Sampling
P. Mukhopadhyay
Survey Sampling reviews aspects of statistical inference in finite population sampling. After reviewing important results in fixed population
models, the book considers in detail the model-dependent optimal strategies of Royall and Herson (1973) and the robustification of these
strategies under model breakdown. It then reviews model assist strategies of Cassel, Sarndal and Wretman (1976) and Wright (1983).
Asymptotic properties of these strategies are also reviewed. Another approach is design-based calibration of Deville and Sarndal (1992).
Design-based conditional inference is an alternative approach which has drawn considerable attention to survey statisticians. Lastly
the book reviews two important tools of making inference, -Model Calibration approach and Empirical Likelihood based approach.
Post-stratification is another aspect which requires considerable attention.
