Inequalities and Extremal Problems in Probability and Statistics: Selected Topics presents various kinds of useful inequalities that are applicable in many areas of mathematics, the sciences, and engineering. The book enables the reader to grasp the importance of inequalities and how they relate to probability and statistics.
This will be an extremely useful book for researchers and graduate students in probability, statistics, and econometrics, as well as specialists working across sciences, engineering, financial mathematics, insurance, and mathematical modeling of large risks.
- Teaches users how to understand useful inequalities
- Applicable across mathematics, sciences, and engineering
- Presented by a team of leading experts
Researchers and graduate students in probability, statistics, and econometrics; specialists working in sciences, engineering, financial mathematics, insurance, and mathematical modeling of large risks
1. Method of moments and sharp inequalities for martingales
2. On a class of optimal stopping problems of nonintegral type
3. On the absolute constants in Nagaev - Bikelis-type inequalities
4. On the nonuniform Berry - Esseen-type bound
5. On the Berry - Esseen bound for the Student statistic

"This volume presents six articles on important inequalities in probability and statistics, and related extremal problems. These include uniform and non-uniform Berry-Esseen bounds and inequalities for martingales, random polynomials and generalized cross-moments. Each of these articles presents the state of the art in the relevant area, together with some new techniques, results or applications." --zbMATH Open
