Handbook of the Normal Distribution, Second Edition
Table of contents:
Genesis: an historical background; basic properties; expansions and
algorithms; characterizations; sampling distributions; limit
theorems and expansions; normal approximations to distributions;
order statistics from normal samples; the bivariate normal
distribution; bivariate normal sampling distributions; point
estimation; statistical intervals.
...Traces the historical development of the normal law. Second
Edition offers a comprehensive treatment of the bivariate normal
distribution--presenting entirely new material on normal integrals,
asymptotic normality, the asymptotic properties of order
statistics, and point estimation and statistical intervals....
"Praise for the First Edition. . . . . .a wonderful book, full of precious knowledge on the normal distribution. . .It should be in the hands of every serious statistician, every research worker, and every Ph.D. candidate, every serious student." ---Technometrics ." . .concise and systematic. . .can easily be used in individual studies. . . .[an] excellent book. You may well find in it many useful results that you had not known before." ---Journal of Official Statistics ." . .well-organized. . . .a useful. . .book for academic statisticians." ---The Statistician ." . .a welcome addition to our libraries." ---Journal of the Royal Statistical Society
