About this Textbook

This book presents the theory of order statistics in a way, such that beginners can get easily acquainted with the very basis of the theory without having to work through heavily involved techniques. At the same time more experienced readers can check their level of understanding and polish their knowledge with certain details. This is achieved by, on the one hand, stating the basic formulae and providing many useful examples to illustrate the theoretical statements, while on the other hand an upgraded list of references will make it easier to gain insight into more specialized results. Thus this book is suitable for a readership working in statistics, actuarial mathematics, reliability engineering, meteorology, hydrology, business economics, sports analysis and many more.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The theory is grouped in 21 chapters, in an interesting presentation. Thus, each chapter begins with a short exposition of the basic definitions and fundamental results corresponding to the studied problem; then, the readers are urged to solve a lot of exercises. … The readers can find detailed solutions at the end of each chapter. These solutions are carefully written and filled with suitable remarks. … The reading of the book is pleasant.” (Eugen Paltanea, zbMATH, Vol. 1276, 2014)
