Projecting Statistical Functionals
Lecture Notes in Statistics
This book presents a method of establishing explicit solutions to classical problems of calculating the best lower and upper mean-variance bounds. The following families of distributions are taken into account: arbitrary, symmetric, symmetric unimodal, and U-shaped. The book is addressed to students, researchers, and practitioners in statistics and applied probability. Most of the results are recent, and a significant part of them has not been published yet. Numerous open problems are stated in the text.
