Edition: Expanded edDescription: xix, 275 p. : ill. ; 23 cmISBN: 0801844452; 0801844436 (pbk.)Subject(s): Science -- Statistical methods | Science -- Philosophy | Probabilities | Mathematical statisticsDDC classification: 501.51954 LOC classification: Q175 | .E34 1992Online resources: WorldCat details
Contents:
TOC Prologue on probability; the concept of likelihood; support; Bayes' theorem and inverse probability; maximum support - the method of maximum likelihood; the method of support for several paramters; expected information and the distribution of evaluates; application in anomalous cases; support tests; miscellaneous topics. Appendices: a problem in the doctrine of chances; the history of likelihood; fiducial distributions; the likelihood treatment of linear regression; R.A. Fisher's work on statistical inference.
Summary: Assuming only a basic knowledge of probability theory, the author sets out to reconstruct a consistent theory of statistical inference in science. Using a likelihood approach, he explores estimation, tests of significance, randomization, experimental design and other statistical topics.
