Decision theory in economics, psychology, philosophy, mathematics, and statistics is concerned with identifying the values, uncertainties and other issues relevant in a given decision, its rationality, and the resulting optimal decision. It is closely related to the field of game theory as to interactions of agents with at least partially conflicting interests whose decisions affect each other.

This book is designed to give you the essential, nittygritty information typically covered in a first semester statistics course. It’s bottomline information for you to use as a refresher, a resource, a quick reference, and/or a study guide. It helps you decipher and make important decisions about statistical polls, experiments, reports and headlines with confidence, being ever aware of the ways people can mislead you with statistics, and how to handle it.

This compendium aims at providing a comprehensive overview of the main topics that appear in any wellstructured course sequence in statistics for business and economics at the undergraduate and MBA levels. The idea is to supplement either formal or informal statistic textbooks such as, e.g., “Basic Statistical Ideas for Managers” by D.K. Hildebrand and R.L. Ott and “The Practice of Business Statistics: Using Data for Decisions” by D.S. Moore, G.P. McCabe, W.M. Duckworth and S.L. Sclove, with a summary of theory as well as with a couple of extra examples.

In Business Statistics, we try to narrow the gap between theory and practice by presentingstatistical methods so they are both relevant and interesting.The data that inform a business decision have a story to tell, and the role ofStatistics is to help us hear that story clearly and communicate it to others.

Detection and classification arise in signal processing problems whenever a decision is to be made among a finite number of hypotheses concerning an observed waveform. Signal detection algorithms decide whether the waveform consists of “noise alone” or “signal masked by noise.” Signal classification algorithms decide whether a detected signal belongs to one or another of prespecified classes of signals. The objective of signal detection and classification theory is to specify systematic strategies for designing algorithms which minimize the average number of decision errors.

Muirhead (1987) reviews the large literature on shrinkage estimators of the covariance matrix in ﬁnitesample statistical decision theory. All these estimators suﬀer from at least two severe drawbacks, either of which is enough to make them illsuited to stock returns: (i) they break down when N T; (ii) they do not exploit the a priori knowledge that stock returns tend to be positively correlated to one another.

The objective of this book is to introduce recent advances and stateoftheart applications of Monte Carlo Simulation (MCS) in various fields. MCS is a class of statistical methods for performance analysis and decision making based on taking random samples from underly‐ ing systems or problems to draw inferences or estimations. Let us make an analogy by using the structure of an umbrella to define and exemplify the position of this book within the fields of science and engineering. Imagine that one can place MCS at the centerpoint of an umbrella and define the...

Forty years ago there was hardly a ﬁeld called ‘behavioral sciences’. In fact, psychology largely was the behavioral sciences, with some help from group theory in sociology and decision making in economics. Now, of course, psychology has expanded and developed in a myriad of ways, to the point where ‘behavioral sciences’ is often the more useful term. Physiological psychology has become neuroscience, covering areas not previously part of psychology. Decisionmaking has become decision science, involving people from economics, marketing, and other disciplines.
