Analytical Methods in Statistics
This volume collects authoritative contributions on analytical methods and mathematical statistics. The methods presented include resampling techniques; the minimization of divergence; estimation theory and regression, eventually under shape or other constraints or long memory; and iterative approximations when the optimal solution is difficult to achieve. It also investigates probability distributions with respect to their stability, heavy-tailness, Fisher information and other aspects, both asymptotically and non-asymptotically. The book not only presents the latest mathematical and statistical methods and their extensions, but also offers solutions to real-world problems including option pricing. The selected, peer-reviewed contributions were originally presented at the workshop on Analytical Methods in Statistics, AMISTAT 2015, held in Prague, Czech Republic, November 10-13, 2015. Jaromír Antoch is a full professor at the Charles University in Prague. His research interests include statistical computing, simulations, change point detection, robust and nonparametric statistics, industrial statistics and applications. He was chairman of the European Regional Section of the International Association for Statistical Computing (IASC) Board of Directors, president of IASC and council member of the International Statistical Institute. Jana Jurecková is a full professor at the Charles University in Prague. She has published over 130 papers in leading journals and coauthored 5 monographs. She has worked on relationships and behavior of robust estimators and nonparametric procedures since the 1970s. She has worked as a visiting professor in Belgium, France, Italy, Switzerland and the USA. She is elected member of the International Statistical Institute, fellow of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics, member of the Bernoulli Society Council and of the ASA Noether's Award Committee. Matús Maciak is an assistant professor at the Charles University in Prague. His research work focuses on nonparametric estimation methods, change point detection and robustness. Recently he elaborated contemporary ideas in sparse fitting via convex optimization - atomic pursuit and lasso. He also gained experience during his stays at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Hasselt University and the University of Hamburg. Michal Pesta is an assistant professor at the Charles University in Prague. His research interests include asymptotic methods for weak dependence, resampling methods, panel data, nonparametric regression, and errors-in-variables modeling. In the recent years, he has been developing the statistical methodology for non-life insurance. Michal Pesta has utilized the skills gained during his PhD and postdoctoral stays (Hasselt University, University of Hamburg, HU Berlin, University of Alberta) to contribute to applied fields.
