Identification of outliers

By: Hawkins, Douglas M.
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookSeries: Monographs on Applied Probability and Statistics. Publisher: New York Chapman and Hall 1980Description: x, 188 p.ISBN: 9789401539968.Subject(s): Statistics | Outliers (Statistics) | Science (General)DDC classification: 519.5 Summary: The problem of outliers is one of the oldest in statistics, and during the last century and a half interest in it has waxed and waned several times. Currently it is once again an active research area after some years of relative neglect, and recent work has solved a number of old problems in outlier theory, and identified new ones. The major results are, however, scattered amongst many journal articles, and for some time there has been a clear need to bring them together in one place. That was the original intention of this monograph: but during execution it became clear that the existing theory of outliers was deficient in several areas, and so the monograph also contains a number of new results and conjectures. In view of the enormous volume ofliterature on the outlier problem and its cousins, no attempt has been made to make the coverage exhaustive.(http://www.springer.com/new+%26+forthcoming+titles+%28default%29/book/978-94-015-3996-8)
