The theory of statistics provides a basis for the whole range of techniques, in both study design and data analysis, that are used within applications of statistics. The theory covers approaches to statistical-decision problems and to statistical inference, and the actions and deductions that satisfy the basic principles stated for these different approaches. Statistical decision theory has been applied to the treatment planning decision of radiation therapy. The decision involves the choice of parameters which determine the radiation dose distribution. To choose among dose distributions requires a decision rule which reflects the uncertainty of possible outcomes for any specific dose distribution Author: T. E. Schultheiss, Anas M. El-Mahdi. At the Gabelli School, we designed a Master of Science in Applied Statistics and Decision-Making (MSSD) program that gives students a foundation in statistical theory, methods, and computation while also providing in-depth expertise in their chosen fields.

I wanted a book which discussed the more theoretical ideas and techniques of decision theory, but in a manner that was constantly oriented towards solving statistical problems.

In particular, it seemed crucial to include a discussion of when and why the various decision prin ciples should be used, and indeed why decision theory is needed at all. Decision theory as the name would imply is concerned with the process of making decisions.

The extension to statistical decision theory includes decision making in the presence of statistical knowledge which provides some information where there is uncertainty.

The Bayesian revolution in statistics—where statistics is integrated with decision making in areas such as management, public policy, engineering, and clinical medicine—is here to stay.

Introduction to Statistical Decision Theory states the case and in a self-contained, comprehensive way shows how the approach is operational and relevant for real-world decision making under uncertainty.

Statistical methods are based on these samples having been taken at random from the population. However, in practice, this is rarely the case.

We will always assume that the sample is representative of the population of interest. Examples include: SA1 CD 4 counts of AIDS patients on January 1, File Size: 1MB.

It includes the mathematical background needed for risk management, such as probability theory, optimization, and the like. The goal of the book is to expose the reader to a wide range of basic problems, some of which emphasize analytic ability, some requiring programming techniques and others focusing on statistical data analysis.

Hypothesis Testing One type of statistical inference, estimation, was discussed in Chapter 5. The other type,hypothesis testing,is discussed in this chapter.

Decision theory can be broken into two branches: normative decision theory, which analyzes the outcomes of decisions or determines the optimal decisions given constraints and assumptions.

Applied Probability (Lange) is a nice book on probability and stochastic processes that covers some unusual topics. It's meant to be accessible to non-mathematicians, although you still have to be mathematically literate.

Before we delve into the details of the statistical theory of estimation and hypothesis testing, we will present a simple example which will serve to illustrate several aspects of the theory.
