zbMATH — the first resource for mathematics

Examples
Geometry Search for the term Geometry in any field. Queries are case-independent.
Funct* Wildcard queries are specified by * (e.g. functions, functorial, etc.). Otherwise the search is exact.
"Topological group" Phrases (multi-words) should be set in "straight quotation marks".
au: Bourbaki & ti: Algebra Search for author and title. The and-operator & is default and can be omitted.
Chebyshev | Tschebyscheff The or-operator | allows to search for Chebyshev or Tschebyscheff.
"Quasi* map*" py: 1989 The resulting documents have publication year 1989.
so: Eur* J* Mat* Soc* cc: 14 Search for publications in a particular source with a Mathematics Subject Classification code (cc) in 14.
"Partial diff* eq*" ! elliptic The not-operator ! eliminates all results containing the word elliptic.
dt: b & au: Hilbert The document type is set to books; alternatively: j for journal articles, a for book articles.

Inference and asymptotics. (English) Zbl 0826.62004
Monographs on Statistics and Applied Probability. 52. London: Chapman and Hall. x, 360 p. £ 29.99 (1994).

This book treats the higher order theory based on likelihood and pseudo- likelihood quantities. The first four chapters are explanations on key concepts such as likelihood, ancillarity, transformation models, etc., including many illustrative examples. The following chapters are the main parts of this book. Specially, the so-called p * -formula is discussed. The p * -formula has the property of giving results for both exponential models and transformation models and from the p * - formula it is possible to obtain third order directional refinements for the score and profile score statistics.

The discussion emphasizes concepts and techniques rather than precise mathematical verifications.

This book will stimulate further developments both in asymptotic parameter inference from likelihood-based perspectives and in the study of differential geometric methods in statistics.
