Dieses Lehrbuch behandelt die in Natur- und Ingenieurwissenschaften eine zentrale Rolle spielenden Rauschprozesse, wie weißes Rauschen in der Raumsondenkommunikation oder thermisches Rauschen und Schrotrauschen in elektronischen Bauelementen.In dieser Form einzigartig, entwickelt der Autor die mathematische Theorie der verallgemeinerten stochastischen Prozesse und spricht dabei die Anwendung dieser mathematischen Objekte in der Praxis (z.B. Schaltkreissimulation, digitale Nachrichtenübertragung und Bildverarbeitung) an; somit dient dieses Lehrbuch auch als praxisrelevante Einführung in die Modellierung und Verwendung technischer Rauschprozesse. Die mathematische Modellierung von Rauschprozessen führt auf die Theorie stochastischer Prozesse auf Basis verallgemeinerter Funktionen (Distributionen), ohne die kein Handy funktionieren und Anwendungen wie die Simulation komplexer elektronischer Schaltungen unmöglich wäre.Für Anwender und interessierte Mathematiker bietet dieses Werk erstmals einen mathematisch fundierten Einblick in diese Thematik.

This book provides a versatile and lucid treatment of classic as well as modern probability theory, while integrating them with core topics in statistical theory and also some key tools in machine learning. It is written in an extremely accessible style, with elaborate motivating discussions and numerous worked out examples and exercises. The book has 20 chapters on a wide range of topics, 423 worked out examples, and 808 exercises. It is unique in its unification of probability and statistics, its coverage and its superb exercise sets, detailed bibliography, and in its substantive treatment of many topics of current importance. This book can be used as a text for a year long graduate course in statistics, computer science, or mathematics, for self-study, and as an invaluable research reference on probabiliity and its applications. Particularly worth mentioning are the treatments of distribution theory, asymptotics, simulation and Markov Chain Monte Carlo, Markov chains and martingales, Gaussian processes, VC theory, probability metrics, large deviations, bootstrap, the EM algorithm, confidence intervals, maximum likelihood and Bayes estimates, exponential families, kernels, and Hilbert spaces, and a self contained complete review of univariate probability.

The application of estimation theory renders the processing of experimental results both rational and effective, and thus helps not only to make our knowledge more precise but to determine the measure of its reliability. As a consequence, estimation theory is indispensable in the analysis of the measuring processes and of experiments in general. The knowledge necessary for studying this book encompasses the disciplines of probability and mathematical statistics as studied in the third or fourth year at university. For readers interested in applications, comparatively detailed chapters on linear and quadratic estimations, and normality of observation vectors have been included. Chapter 2 includes selected items of information from algebra, functional analysis and the theory of probability, intended to facilitate the reading of the text proper and to save the reader looking up individual theorems in various textbooks and papers; it is mainly devoted to the reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces, helpful in solving many estimation problems. The text proper of the book begins with Chapter 3. This is divided into two parts: the first deals with sufficient statistics, complete sufficient statistics, minimal sufficient statistics and relations between them; the second contains the mostimportant inequalities of estimation theory for scalar and vector valued parameters and presents properties of the exponential family of distributions. The fourth chapter is an introduction to asymptotic methods of estimation. The method of statistical moments and the maximum-likelihood method are investigated. The sufficient conditions for asymptotical normality of the estimators are given for both methods. The linear and quadratic methods of estimation are dealt with in the fifth chapter. The method of least squares estimation is treated. Five basic regular versions of the regression model and the unified linear model of estimation are described. Unbiased estimators for unit dispersion (factor of the covariance matrix) are given for all mentioned cases. The equivalence of the least-squares method to the method of generalized minimum norm inversion of the design matrix of the regression model is studied in detail. The problem of estimating the covariance components in the mixed model is mentioned as well. Statistical properties of linear and quadratic estimators developed in the fifth chapter in the case of normally distributed errors of measurement are given in Chapter 6. Further, the application of tensor products of Hilbert spaces generated by the covariance matrix of random error vector of observations is demonstrated. Chapter 7 reviews some further important methods of estimation theory. In the first part Wald's method of decision functions is applied to the construction of estimators. The method of contracted estimators and the method of Hoerl and Kennard are presented in the second part. The basic ideas of robustness and Bahadur's approach to estimation theory are presented in the third and fourth parts of this last chapter.
