Sequential analysis by Abraham Wald( Book )

92 editions published between 1947 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1943, while in charge of Columbia University's Statistical Research Group, Abraham Wald devised Sequential Design, an innovative statistical inference system. Because the decision to terminate an experiment is not predetermined, sequential analysis can arrive at a decision much sooner and with substantially fewer observations than equally reliable test procedures based on a predetermined number of observations. The system's immense value was immediately recognized, and its use was restricted to wartime research and procedures. In 1945, it was released to the public and has since revolutionized many aspects of statistical practice. This book is Professor Wald's own description of the system. Part I contains a discussion of the general theory of the sequential probability ratio test, with comparisons to traditional statistical inference systems. Part II discusses applications that illustrate the general theory and raise points of theoretical interest specific to these applications. Part III outlines a possible approach to the problem of sequential multi-valued decisions and estimation. All three sections can be understood by readers with only a background in college algebra and a first course in calculus. Mathematical derivations of somewhat intricate nature appear in the appendix. Sequential Analysis offers statistical researchers a time- and money-saving approach, introduces students to one of the major systems in contemporary use, and presents those already acquainted with the system with valuable background information

Berechnung und Ausschaltung von Saisonschwankungen by Abraham Wald( Book )

12 editions published in 1936 in German and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Fortschritte, die die Konjunkturforschung in den letzten Dezennien gemacht hat, beruhen nicht zuletzt auf der Ausbildung verfeinerter statistischer Methoden, namentlich im Zusammenhang mit der Analyse von Zeitreihen. Eines der bekanntesten und gebrauchlichsten dieser Verfahren stammt von W.M. PERSONS. An seiner Methode wurde im Laufe der Zeit vielfach· Kritik geiibt, ohne daB jedoch ein geeigneter Ersatz geschaffen worden ware. Den AnlaB zu der hier vorliegenden Untersuchung bildete die Tatsache, daB im Osterreichischen Institut fUr Konjunktur forschung bei der Berechnung der Saisonschwankung nach der PERSoNsschen Methode in gewissen Reihen der osterreichischen Wirtschaft derart unbefriedigende Ergebnisse erzielt wurden, daB eine Abhilfe dringend geboten erschien. Der Verfasser hat daher den Bereich der durch die Saisonschwankung geschaffenen Probleme untersucht und eine neue' Methode der Berechnung entwickelt. Obwohl diese Methode im genannten Institut mit Erfolg angewendet wird, erhebt der Verfasser keineswegs den Anspruch, bereits aIle Probleme gelost zu haben. Immerhin diirfte das neue Verfahren auf die Mehrzahl der vorkommenden empirischen Reihen gut anwendbar sein
