Robust Statistics by Peter J. Huber

Book Description

A new edition of the classic, groundbreaking book on robust statistics Over twenty-five years after the publication of its predecessor, Robust Statistics , Second Edition continues to provide an authoritative and systematic treatment of the topic. This new edition has been thoroughly updated and expanded to reflect the latest advances in the field while also outlining the established theory and applications for building a solid foundation in robust statistics for both the theoretical and the applied statistician. A comprehensive introduction and discussion on the formal mathematical background behind qualitative and quantitative robustness is provided, and subsequent chapters delve into basic types of scale estimates, asymptotic minimax theory, regression, robust covariance, and robust design. In addition to an extended treatment of robust regression, the Second Edition features four new chapters covering: Robust Tests Small Sample Asymptotics Breakdown Point Bayesian Robustness An expanded treatment of robust regression and pseudo-values is also featured, and concepts, rather than mathematical completeness, are stressed in every discussion. Selected numerical algorithms for computing robust estimates and convergence proofs are provided throughout the book, along with quantitative robustness information for a variety of estimates. A General Remarks section appears at the beginning of each chapter and provides readers with ample motivation for working with the presented methods and techniques. Robust Statistics , Second Edition is an ideal book for graduate-level courses on the topic. It also serves as a valuable reference for researchers and practitioners who wish to study the statistical research associated with robust statistics.

Data Analysis by Peter J. Huber Data Analysis, Hardback (May 2011)

This book explores the historical and philosophical implications inherent in any study of statistical data analysis. It addresses the needs of researchers who are working with larger, complicated data sets by offering an understanding of the significance of robust data sets, the implementation of software languages, and the use of models.

Robust Statistical Procedures by Peter J. Huber Robust Statistical Procedures, Paperback (January 1987)

This brief text focuses mainly on the important case of distribution robustness, where the shape of the true underlying distribution deviates slightly from the assumed model. An updated reference list and a chapter on recent developments in robustness has been added.
