From the PublisherThis book will be an excellent resource for researchers and graduate students who need a deeper understanding of functions arising in probability and statistics than that provided by numerical techniques.
—Eduardo Gutiérrez-Peña, International Statistical Review, 2012
This outstanding book is rich in contents and excellent in readability. … I enjoyed reading this book and found this book valuable in my research as well as in my understanding of expansions and asymptotics as they arise often in statistics. The author has to be commended for his contribution to our profession in getting this book out.
—Subir Ghosh, Technometrics, May 2012
I have found this book very useful not only for the specialists in asymptotics but especially for all those who wish to learn more from this field and to see the inter-relations between different approaches.
—Jaromir Antoch, Zentralblatt MATH
This is an excellent book for researchers interested in asymptotics, especially those working on (mathematical) statistics or applied probability. … The book contains a compilation of different techniques to deal with series expansions and approximations with statistical applications. Examples are focused on the approximation of probability densities, distributions and likelihoods.
