This book brings one right up to date and is a worthy addition to the existing set of second editions of the other volumes of Distributions in Statistics. It will remain the key reference for many years. (Short Book Reviews, Vol. 20, No. 3, December 2000)
[...] Continuous Multivariate Distributions is a unique and valuable source of information on multivariate distributions. This book, and the rest of this venerable and important series, should be on the shelves of every statistician. (JASA June 2001)
For certain it will serve as the primary source for continuous multivariate statistical distributions for a long time. (Zentralblatt Math, Volume 946, No 21, 2000)
"...provides a remarkably comprehensive, self-contained resource for this important statistical area." (Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2001h)
"It will remain the key reference for many years." (Short Book Reviews, December 2000)
"...will serve as the primary source for continuous multivariate statistical distributions for a long time." (Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 946, No. 21)
"Like its predecessors, this monograph is a most welcome addition to the statistical literature. We are looking forward to Volume 2..." (Statistical Papers, Vol. 42, No. 3, 2001)
From the Inside Flap
The fifth volume in what is widely known as the definitive work on statistical distributions, Continuous Multivariate Distributions, Volume 1, Second Edition is a comprehensive revision of Johnson and Kotz?s acclaimed 1972 volume. It represents the next installment in a unique collection that encompasses discrete univariate distributions, continuous univariate distributions, and discrete multivariate distributions.
Presenting a comprehensive, authoritative, up-to-date treatment of continuous multivariate distributions (CMD), this volume focuses on the many ways in which multivariate (MV) distributions have been constructed, investigated, and applied over the past quarter century. It addresses advances made through the use of computers, incorporates many important results from the literature, and highlights the increasing popularity of various MV distributions for use in statistical analyses of models in applied fields.
A broad range of MV distributional models is discussed in detail. This new edition does not include sampling distributions such as MV t and Wishart, but contains significantly expanded coverage of MV general systems, MV normal, MV exponential, MV extreme value, MV beta, MV gamma, MV logistic, MV Liouville, and MV Pareto distributions. In addition, a completely new chapter is devoted to MV natural exponential families, reflecting the rapid developments this new topic has seen since the 1970s.
Continuous Multivariate Distributions, Volume 1, Second Edition provides a detailed description of properties for each CMD, explains inferential methods for them, and outlines their application in a variety of real-world problems and settings. It is an indispensable
working resource for theoreticians in statistical methodology as well as for applied researchers in engineering, health sciences, economics, business, environmental sciences, and behavioral and social sciences.
