Product description


‘This book provides a unique perspective on exponential families, bringing together theory and methods into a unified whole. No other text covers the range of topics in this text. If you want to understand the ‘why' as well as the `how' of exponential families, then this book should be on your bookshelf.' Larry Wasserman, Carnegie Mellon University

‘I am excited to see the publication of this monograph on exponential families by my friend and colleague Brad Efron. I learned some of this material during my Ph.D. studies at Stanford from the maestro himself, as well as the geometry of curved exponential families, Hoeffding's lemma, the Lindsey method, and the list goes on. They have lived with me my entire career and informed our work on GAMs and sparse GLMs. Generations of Stanford students have shared this privilege, and now generations in the future will be able to enjoy the unique Efron style.' Trevor Hastie, Stanford University

‘Exponential families can be magical in simplifying both theoretical and applied statistical analyses. Brad Efron's wonderful book exposes their secrets, from R. A. Fisher's early magic to Efron's own bootstrap: an essential text for understanding how data of all sizes can be approached scientifically.' Stephen

‘This book provides an original and accessible study of statistical inference in the class of models called exponential families. The mathematical properties and flexibility of this class makes the models very useful for statistical practice – they underpin the class of generalized linear models, for example. Writing with his characteristic elegance and clarity, Efron shows how exponential families underpin, and provide insight into, many modern topics in statistical science, including bootstrap inference, empirical Bayes methodology, high-dimensional inference, analysis of survival data, missing data, and more.' Nancy Reid, University of Toronto

‘In this book, Brad Efron illuminates the exponential family as a practical, extendible, and crucial ingredient in all manners of data analysis, be they Bayesian, frequentist, or machine learning. He shows us how to shape, understand, and employ these distributions in both algorithms and analysis. The book is crisp, insightful, and indispensable.' David Blei, Columbia University

Book Description

This accessible course on a central player in modern statistical practice connects models with methodology, without need for advanced math.
