Extreme Value and Related Models with Applications in Engineering and Science
Here's an elementary and comprehensive discussion on extreme value and related models. By using a large number of practical data from different science and engineering disciplines, it illustrates the practical importance and usefulness of extreme value modeling. Unusual, provocative, and concrete examples are derived from areas such as ocean engineering, structural engineering, hydraulics, meteorology, materials science, fatigue studies, electrical strength of materials, highway traffic analysis, corrosion science, environmetrics, climatology, among others.
* Emphasizes lucid and analytic explanations of the data in the context of a global world.
* Presents specific data in wind, flood, wave, Houmb's, Ocmulgee River, oldest age at death in Sweden, telephone calls, epicenter, chain strength, electrical insulation, fatigue, precipitation, and Bilbao wave heights phenomena.
* Discusses different types of inference, extreme value regression, and handling of outliers.
