Mathematical Methods of Statistics (PMS-9), Volume 9 Paperback / softback
Part of the Princeton Landmarks in Mathematics and Physics series
In this classic of statistical mathematical theory, Harald Cramer joins the two major lines of development in the field: while British and American statisticians were developing the science of statistical inference, French and Russian probabilitists transformed the classical calculus of probability into a rigorous and pure mathematical theory.
The result of Cramer's work is a masterly exposition of the mathematical methods of modern statistics that set the standard that others have since sought to follow.
For anyone with a working knowledge of undergraduate mathematics the book is self contained.
The first part is an introduction to the fundamental concept of a distribution and of integration with respect to a distribution.
The second part contains the general theory of random variables and probability distributions while the third is devoted to the theory of sampling, statistical estimation, and tests of significance.
