The only comprehensive guide to the theory and practice of one oftoday's most important probabilistic techniques

The past 15 years have witnessed many significant advances insequential estimation, especially in the areas of three-stage andnonparametric methodology. Yet, until now, there were no referencesdevoted exclusively to this rapidly growing statisticalfield.

Sequential Estimation is the first, single-source guide to thetheory and practice of both classical and modern sequentialestimation techniques—including parametric and nonparametricmethods. Researchers in sequential analysis will appreciate theunified, logically integrated treatment of the subject, as well ascoverage of important contemporary procedures not covered in moregeneral sequential analysis texts, such as:
* Shrinkage estimation
* Empirical and hierarchical Bayes procedures
* Multistage sampling and accelerated sampling procedures
* Time-sequential estimation
* Sequential estimation in finite population sampling
* Reliability estimation and capture-recapture methodologiesleading to sequential tagging schemes

An indispensable resource for researchers in sequential analysis,Sequential Estimation is an ideal graduate-level text as well.
