Asymptotics in statistics : some basic concepts by
Lucien M Le Cam(
Book
)
26 editions published between 1990 and 2012 in English and German and held by 611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume is the second edition of a work that presents a coherent introduction to the subject of asymptotic statistics as it has developed in the past 50 years. The second edition differs from the first in that it has been made more 'reader friendly'. It also includes a new chapter, Chapter 4, on Gaussian and Poisson experiments because of their growing role in the field, especially in nonparametrics and semiparametrics. Most of the subsequent chapters have been entirely rewritten and the nonparametrics of Chapter 7 have been ampliefied. Much of the material has been taught in a second year graduate course at Berkeley for 30 years. It represents a link between traditional material including maximum likelihood, and Wald's Theory of Statistical Decision Functions together with comparison and distances for experiments. This volume is not intended to replace monographs on specialized subjects, but it will help to place them in a coherent perspective. Lucien Le Cam is Professor of Statistics and Mathematics (Emeritus) at the University of California, Berkeley. He is the author of numerous papers on asymptotics and Asymptotic Methods in Statistical Decision Theory, Springer Verlag (1986). He was coeditor, with J. Neyman and E. Scott of the Berkeley Symposia on Mathematical Statistics and Probability. Grace Lo Yang is Professor, Department of Mathematics, University of Maryland, College Park. She is a long time holder of a Faculty Appointment at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, Gaithersburg, MD. Her research activities include stochastic modeling in physical sciences and theory of incomplete data

Asymptotic methods in statistical decision theory by
Lucien M Le Cam(
Book
)
11 editions published between 1986 and 2012 in English and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book grew out of lectures delivered at the University of California, Berkeley, over many years. The subject is a part of asymptotics in statistics, organized around a few central ideas. The presentation proceeds from the general to the particular since this seemed the best way to emphasize the basic concepts. The reader is expected to have been exposed to statistical thinking and methodology, as expounded for instance in the book by H. Cramer [1946] or the more recent text by P. Bickel and K. Doksum [1977]. Another pos sibility, closer to the present in spirit, is Ferguson [1967]. Otherwise the reader is expected to possess some mathematical maturity, but not really a great deal of detailed mathematical knowledge. Very few mathematical objects are used; their assumed properties are simple; the results are almost always immediate consequences of the definitions. Some objects, such as vector lattices, may not have been included in the standard background of a student of statistics. For these we have provided a summary of relevant facts in the Appendix. The basic structures in the whole affair are systems that Blackwell called "experiments" and "transitions" between them. An "experiment" is a mathe matical abstraction intended to describe the basic features of an observational process if that process is contemplated in advance of its implementation. Typically, an experiment consists of a set E> of theories about what may happen in the observational process

Festschrift for Lucien Le Cam : research papers in probability and statistics by
David Pollard(
Book
)
5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is authorapproved bcc: The papers in this volume were contributed in honor of Lucien Le Cam on the occasion of his 70th birthday. They reflect the immense influence that his work has had on modern statistics. The papers include discussions of Le Cam's seminal ideas, historical perspectives, and contributions to current research. They reach back two centuries, with a new translation of a paper of Daniel Bernoulli, and they reach forward to new ideas about semiparametric theory and wavelets. The volume begins with the paper of Aalen, which describes Le Cam's role in the founding of the martingale analysis of point processes, and ends with the paper of Yu, which explores the position of just one of Le Cam's ideas in modern semiparametric theory. The other 27 papers touch on other areassuch as local asymptotic normality, contiguity, efficiency, admissibility, minimaxity, empirical process theory, and biological medical, and meterological applications  where Le Cam's insights have been the foundations on which a theory has been built
