Probability and statistics by Morris H DeGroot( Book )
79 editions published between 1975 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,143 libraries worldwide
The revision of this well-respected text presents a balanced approach of the classical and Bayesian methods and now includes a new chapter on simulation (including Markov chain Monte Carlo and the Bootstrap), expanded coverage of residual analysis in linear models, and more examples using real data
Optimal statistical decisions by Morris H DeGroot( Book )
27 editions published between 1969 and 2005 in 4 languages and held by 788 libraries worldwide
The Wiley Classics Library consists of selected books that have become recognized classics in their respective fields. With these new unabridged and inexpensive editions, Wiley hopes to extend the life of these important works by making them available to future generations of mathematicians and scientists
Statistics and the law by Morris H DeGroot( Book )
17 editions published between 1986 and 1996 in English and held by 786 libraries worldwide
Describes a wide variety of applications of statistical concepts in legal settings, as well as cases in which statistical analyses were important elements. Several chapters are devoted to employment discrimination and antitrust violation, two areas of litigation that rely heavily on statistics. Contributors discuss the correct choice and use of statistical techniques in the assessment of damages, the measurement and quantification of skill (in a case deciding whether video poker games require skill), the determination of disputed paternity and elections, and other areas where statistics are used in legal cases. Many of the chapters are written by the statisticians who actually participated in the cases under discussion
Bayesian analysis and uncertainty in economic theory by Richard Michael Cyert( Book )
18 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and Italian and held by 482 libraries worldwide
We began this research with the objective of applying Bayesian methods of analysis to various aspects of economic theory. We were attracted to the Bayesian approach because it seemed the best analytic framework available for dealing with decision making under uncertainty, and the research presented in this book has only served to strengthen our belief in the appropriateness and usefulness of this methodology. More specif ically, we believe that the concept of organizational learning is funda mental to decision making under uncertainty in economics and that the Bayesian framework is the most appropriate for developing that concept. The central and unifying theme of this book is decision making under uncertainty in microeconomic theory. Our fundamental aim is to explore the ways in which firms and households make decisions and to develop models that have a strong empirical connection. Thus, we have attempted to contribute to economic theory by formalizing models of the actual pro cess of decision making under uncertainty. Bayesian methodology pro vides the appropriate vehicle for this formalization
Bayesian statistics 2 : proceedings of the Second Valencia International Meeting, September 6/10, 1983 by J. M Bernardo( Book )
10 editions published between 1980 and 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 187 libraries worldwide
Student's solutions manual to accompany probability and statistics by Morris H DeGroot( Book )

Optimal peremptory challenges in trials by juries : a bilateral sequential process by Arthur J Roth( Book )
3 editions published between 1976 and 1978 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Prosecution and defense lawyers are about to select a jury of J people. Each prospective juror is (sequentially) interviewed, and each lawyer must then decide whether to accept or challenge (i.e., reject) the present candidate before interviewing anyone else, and this decision cannot later be changed
Unbiased sequential estimation of a probability by Morris H DeGroot( Archival Material )

The comparison and evaluation of forecasters by Morris H DeGroot( Book )
2 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
In this paper, we present methods for comparing and evaluating forecasters whose predictions are presented as their subjective probability distributions of various random variables that will be observed in the future, e.g. weather forecasters who each day must specify their own probabilities that it will rain in a particular location. We begin by reviewing the concepts of calibration and refinement, and describing the relationship between this notion of refinement and the notion of sufficiency in the comparison of statistical experiments. We also consider the question of interrelationships among forecasters and discuss methods by which an observer should combine the predictions from two or more different forecasters. Then we turn our attention to the concept of a proper scoring rule for evaluating forecasters, relating it to the concepts of calibration and refinement. Finally, we discuss conditions under which one forecaster can exploit the predictions of another forecaster to obtain a better score. (Author)
Measuring utility by a single-response sequential method ( Book )
1 edition published in 1963 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
A sequential experiment is described that pro vides, at each stage in the sequence, an esti mate of the utility to the subject of some amount of a commodity (e.g., money), and to present a few experimental results obtained with the method. The procedure is based upon the following well-known expected utility hypothesis. For each person there exist numerical constants, called utilities, associated with the various possible outcomes of his actions, given external events not under his control. If, for a given subject, we could know the values of these con stants and the (''personal'') probabilities he assigns to the various external events we can, according to this model, predict his choice from among any available set of actions: He will choose an action with the highest expected utility; i.e., with the highest average of utilities of outcomes, weighted by the proba bilities he assigns to the corresponding events. He will be indifferent between any two actions with equal expected utilities. Note that (by the nature of weighted averages) the comparison between expected utilities does not depend on which two particular outcomes are regarded as having zero-utility and unit-utility.

Comparison of experiments for selection and censored data models by Prem K Goel( Article )
1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Student's solution manual to Probability and statistics by Morris H DeGroot( Book )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
A Bayesian View of Assessing Uncertainty and Comparing Expert Opinion ( Book )
1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
A Bayesian approach to the problem of comparing experts or expert systems is presented. The question of who is an expert is considered and comparisons among well-calibrated experts are studied. The concept of refinement, in various equivalent forms, is used in this study. An informative example of the combination of the opinions of well-calibrated experts is described. Total orderings of the class of well-calibrated experts are derived from strictly proper scoring rules. Keywords: predictions; Forecasters; Well calibrated; Expert systems; Combining opinion; Scoring rules. (Author)
