Nonlinear Time Series: Theory, Methods and Applications with R Examples 
Randal Douc, Eric Moulines, and David Stoffer

ISBN: 978-1-4665-0225-3
Publication Date: Jan 2014
Number of Pages: 551

This text emphasizes nonlinear models for a course in time series analysis. After introducing stochastic processes, Markov chains, Poisson processes, and ARMA models, the authors cover functional autoregressive, ARCH, threshold AR, and discrete time series models as well as several complementary approaches. They discuss the main limit theorems for Markov chains, useful inequalities, statistical techniques to infer model parameters, and GLMs. Moving on to HMM models, the book examines filtering and smoothing, parametric and nonparametric inference, advanced particle filtering, and numerical methods for inference.

Foundations of Statistical Algorithms: With References to R Packages 
Claus Weihs, Olaf Mersmann, and Uwe Ligges

ISBN: 978-1-4398-7885-9
Publication Date: Dec 2013
Number of Pages: 474

A new and refreshingly different approach to presenting the foundations of statistical algorithms, this book reviews the historical development of basic algorithms to illuminate the evolution of today's more powerful statistical algorithms. It emphasizes recurring themes in all statistical algorithms, including computation, assessment and verification, iteration, intuition, randomness, repetition and parallelization, and scalability. Unique in scope, the book reviews the upcoming challenge of scaling many of the established techniques to very large data sets and delves into systematic verification by demonstrating how to derive general classes of worst case inputs and emphasizing the importance of testing over a large number of different inputs.

Applied Meta-Analysis with R
Ding-Geng (Din) Chen

ISBN: 978-1-4665-0599-5
Publication Date: May 2013
Number of Pages: 342

In biostatistical research and courses, practitioners and students often lack a thorough understanding of how to apply statistical methods to synthesize biomedical and clinical trial data. Filling this knowledge gap, this book shows how to implement statistical meta-analysis methods to real data using R. Suitable as a graduate-level text for a meta-data analysis course, the book is also a valuable reference for practitioners and biostatisticians (even those with little or no experience in using R) in public health, medical research, governmental agencies, and the pharmaceutical industry.
